The Packers’ Forgotten Linebacker

  1 month ago     7931 Views     Leave your thoughts  

There has been a lot of talk in Packer Nation this off-season about the linebacker position. Questions still need to be answered about the OLB position, the veterans Clay Matthews and Nick Perry as well as up-and-comers Vince Biegel, Kyler Fackrell and Reggie Gilbert. Inside, Blake Martinez lived up to the name "Machinez" in 2017 and the Packers drafted Oren Burks in the third round who was brought in largely for his upside and ability to cover receivers. But one of the Packers' linebackers also had a good 2017 and got little credit for it. Let's talk about the Packers'…

The NFC North looks to be one of the most competitive in the NFC if not the entire NFL this coming season.

But it is a lot more difficult to keep up with the off-season moves of the other teams in the North so we at GPN decided to do that work for you as the Packers' success in the Division is largely indicative of their success overall. Let's take a quick look around the North and check out the competition with a…

  3 months ago     64377 Views     Leave your thoughts  

Packers' new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine must have been happy with this year's off-season. Going into his first year, the team brought in Mo Wilkerson and signed Tramon Williams and Davon House. Then in the draft, the team's first three picks were defensive players including corners at the two top spots. But the addition of Oren Burks in the third round may be one of the more under-rated of the Packers' choices this year. Burks is an ILB with a lot of defensive back and hybrid experience. And coming from Vandy, in Pettine's simpler scheme...he could be part of a…

Reggie Gilbert got the attention of Packers head coach Mike McCarthy during rookie orientation. Gilbert has flashed real pass-rush potential but on a roster that includes some significant draft picks, he has his work cut out for him. But if Gilbert can continue to shine, he has a realistic chance of passing up draft picks for reps in the 2018 season. The Packers have been looking for a possible pass rush beyond Clay Matthews and if Gilbert can perform he can help the Pack immediately. Here are three ways Gilbert can help Pettine's new scheme if he comes on this…

Rd. 1 Pick 14 (14 Minkah Fitzpatrick (DB) 6'1'' 201 lbs 4.46 40-rd dash [Alabama] 6.30 Grade by NFL.com Very high intensity player who somehow fell to 14 in my most recent draft and I scooped him right up. He is the ultimate plug and play backfield player. Experienced at slot cornerback, can also play in a subpackage as a linebacker and a blitzer and he has played both corner and safety at a very high level throughout his collegiate career. A walk-on at Alabama as a freshman he started 10 times at the "star" position earning him Freshman All-American…

Today teams can begin to talk to free agents whose contracts are set to expire in a couple days. While no contracts can be executed until 4:00 New York time on Wednesday, teams can enter into negotiations with the representatives of players. The free agent frenzy has begun. There are already rumors that the Packers are hard after Trumaine Johnson, there are of course no guarantees. But with the trade of Damarious Randall, the Packers would be hard pressed to lean on the draft alone to complete their backfield. (more…)
