When Josh Jones hired Drew Rosenhaus, it raised some eyebrows. Most players make such changes after they have played in the NFL...not just after they got drafted. Why would Jones make this move, especially when the rookie salary is so determinate. The question could further be asked...why have an agent at all if the rookie contracts are set by the salary cap and a rookie pool. Well, we have taken a brilliant graphic from the actual 2015 rookie salaries and done a little scribbling...now that Kevin King's contract details have come out, the difference between the beginning of the second…

Part 3: What Montravius Adams Brings to the Packers

  5 months ago     105 Views     Leave your thoughts  

The Packers' third round pick of Montravius Adams should come as no surprise from a philosophical standpoint. The Packers have constantly reminded fans how important the big guys are and that you can never have too many of them. Thompson likes to pick big guys early too but the need in the defensive backfield was greater yet again which was reflected in the picks. But Adams will have an opportunity on a team that has LeTroy Guion and also only has Ricky Jean Francois under contract for a year. Here is what I expect to see. (more…)

When the Packers added Josh Jones in the second round, I hadn't been paying enough attention to the safety position.

Chad Reuter has the Packers picking TJ Watt in round one of the 2017 draft at pick number 29. This pick would have many in Packer Nation ( myself incuded) turning cartwheels. But is this the best route for the Packers to go? A lot of factors go into a first round pick, even for a team that has been consistent in their claim that they always choose the best player available. Who is available? Are there other players available at a position of greater need? Is one position deeper, possibly yielding a player of similar skill-set in the next round? The…

Ranking the Top 5 Packers Draft Needs

  6 months ago     100 Views     2 Comments  

The Packers will enter the 2017 draft with holes to fill...particularly on defense. Ranked 22nd in total defense, multitudes of injury, in particular to Sam Shields, forced young cornerbacks (themselves injured often) into major roles in short order. With the exit of Julius Peppers and Datone Jones, second year LB Kyler Fackrell and recently signed Jayrone Elliot will presumably be called upon earlier and more often. Up front, second year DT Kenny Clark will have his chance to "take the next step" in working side by side with Mike Daniels and now Ricky Jean Francois. But the defense isn't the…
