Wanna Hear a Draft Day Secret?

Well draft day is here! Packers fans are sitting on the edge of their seats, biting nails draft picwith bated breath hoping the Packers get a chance to pick their favorite college prospect at pick number 21. It’s fun, it’s exciting…and it is a VERY important day for the Packers today. The decisions called in today (that have been made over the course of the entire offseason) will shape the Packers team and fuel the Packers success for years to come.

But there is one thing that many of the draftniks and ALL of the Sports TV and radio are missing right now. This one thing is what I am going to be watching this particular draft for…and I can’t wait! So what is it? What do I see when I look beyond the hype? Continue reading

Who Will Take a Tumble Tomorrow?

Well Packernation, the draft starts tomorrow and for every “sure thing” there is a “wildcard” I made guess wildcard(and yes, they are ALL guesses) at who the Packers would get with that 21st pick but today I found myself wondering…”Who is gonna take a tumble tomorrow?”

In every draft, there is a player projected early in the first round who somehow finds his way DOWN the board (for example…Aaron Rodgers). Who will that person be tomorrow? Is it possible that a coveted safety like Ha-Ha Clinton Dix finds his way past the middle of the first round to make Packers fans hold their breath that he may still be there at 21? I’m here to tell you, it IS possible. Continue reading

It’s Tuesday, But Thursday’s Comin!

All the rumors about the Texans possibly taking Mack over Jadaveon Clowney will have little effect on the draft picPackers pick at 21. I personally am drinkin’ the Kool-Aid on this one…that the Texans are seriously considering taking Mack. Again though…that will just amount to a flip-flop in one and two.

It seems the Packers sit just outside the range where anything really exciting will happen and with Ted Thompson’s propensity to stand pat, I think he will be smart and leave other teams to the frenzy, knowing that not only will he get a good pick in the first round but he will be getting extra picks in the third where he can find players with a second round grade. I would not be surprised at all if Ted Thompson trades back in this draft if he doesn’t see what he likes.

So, since the Packers board is all but complete as of right now and the work in the war room is now just fine tuning and double checking, here is what I think is gonna happen and why:

Legacy of Champions: Packers 2010 Championship

The 2010 Packers were a group of scrappers who lived by a never-say-die mantra. For most teams, one and done hangs in the back of their mind from the start of the playoffs on. The Packers had a much harder row to hoe on their way to their 13th NFL championship. Continue reading

Julius Peppers: Will He Have More Sacks or Assists?

Marc Sessler Reported today that Packers GM Ted Thompson is high on Julius Peppers and thinks he will jpbe a force to be reckoned with on the Packers defense this coming season. I agree wholeheartedly. Opposing offenses are now going to have to “pick their poison”. Focus on Clay Matthews…get Julius Peppers running down your quarterback…focus on Peppers and, well…you know the rest.

I think initially teams will focus on Matthews, requiring Peppers to prove himself, and prove himself he will. Julius Peppers, in that scenario, gets 10+ sacks next season. But what if teams shift the focus to Peppers? Then Clay Matthews sets up camp right in the face of the opposing quarterback and he has an awesome year. Reality…well, reality will be somewhere in between, but assisting a sack is still a quarterback sack no matter who gets the check in the box on the stat sheet. Here are some things I like about this combination:

Would You Risk It?

sefBrian Baldinger had an interesting mock draft the other day. No QB’s taken in the top ten and his pick for Green Bay at number 21 was tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins. My first thought was “No way! We could get this guy in the second round!” But the idea is intriguing…especially given the physicals (6’5″ 262 lbs and a basketball player) that Sefarian-Jenkins could bring to a team that may be losing Jermichael Finley. But I think the pick would be unlikely for several reasons:

  • BPA Policy – Ted Thompson more often than not sticks to his best player available philosophy and I find it hard to believe that there would not be several better players available that also fill more pressing needs…Choosing another offensive player would require that he be a difference maker and it is questionable that Sefarian-Jenkins would be that.
  • Need – In terms of need, it is likely that the Packers will have a need at tight end especially with the injury to Jermichael Finley. To add a 6’5″ tight end with basketball skills would be a welcome thing for sure, but again…do we take a tight end here or do we wait to see if this guy is available in round two?
  • Development – Seferian-Jenkins needs to develop as a player and especially as a blocker. Do the Packers pull him at pick 21 and work with him for a year, possibly passing on a player that could be “plug and play”?
  • Availability/Consistency – Had a stress fracture in his foot, but that should be fine. His play has been somewhat inconsistent and Aaron Rodgers needs consistent play from the tight ends. But if he grows into his professional career, he could be a legitimate threat to opposing defenses in the red zone for a long time to come.
  • Character – This could be the biggest risk of all. Sefarian-Jenkins pled guilty to a DUI and was sentenced to jail time…bad…very bad. Also suspended for the season opener against Boise State as a consequence of the DUI. Sound like a Packer person? It’s so hard to tell but it does up the RISK.
