The pre-season starts tonight against the Eagles and things will then move quickly through the rest of the pre-season into roster cuts and the beginning of the 2017 regular season. There will be a lot to watch, though Aaron Rodgers and a few other veterans will not be among them (fine by me). But one of the things that has Packer Nation excited is the impact that the rookie draft class could have on the 2017 season. We get our first good look tonight. Which draftee do you think makes the biggest splash? Stand up and be counted in the…

We talked this morning about timing being the most important thing for free agency and Ted Thompson. Show too much interest too soon and overpay, or wait to long in silence and the right guy passes you by.
