Aaron Rodgers gets ‘nostalgic’ about his NFL Draft free-fall

One of the most drawn-out, uncomfortable and awkward events in NFL Draft history occurred in 2005 as Aaron Rodgers sat and sat and sat while waiting an excruciating four-and-a-half hours in the green room before finally hearing his name get called. With cameras painfully capturing his every move as name after name — except for his own — were announced, Rodgers became both...

Will the Packers trade Down?

As Thursday night nears ever closer and the mock drafts draw to close, it becomes time for the real NFL general managers to decide on who to draft for their respective teams. It’s a high-pressure task. More than one general manager will probably lose their job in the near future based on a wrong pick made this coming weekend. It’s usually the picks made in the first round...

How the Green Bay Packers can nail the draft

The Green Bay Packers arguably rely on the draft more than any team in the league. According to the Packers website 35 of the 62 players on the current roster were drafted. We see time and time again draft picks for the packers, specifically on defense become regular starters. Last year the Packers drafted Damarious Randall who became one of the best young talents on their roster...

Green Bay Packers seven round mock draft

Mock drafts.  They are what have made the likes of ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. so popular this time of year.  It’s where draft experts try and earn their money for how well they can grade each prospect.  For what it is worth, I by no means am on Kiper’s level when it comes to predicting the draft.  But, I like the challenge it is to dive deep into the draft pool and see who would...

The Green Bay Packers Select…

Trying to predict what general manager Ted Thompson will do with the 27th pick in the first round will be a lot easier after pick No. 26 is announced on Thursday night than it is right now. But that’s not going to stop me from giving it a shot. OK, I’ll start by removing the players who I don’t expect to still be on the board. They are: quarterbacks Jared Goff, Carson Went...

Matthews In The Middle

Mike McCarthy seems determined to play Clay Matthews predominantly at outside linebacker in 2016 – a decision that figures to make the team’s second-highest paid player happy, but probably won’t make the defense better. That’s because the 5-time Pro Bowler isn’t the edge rusher he was earlier in his career. I first wrote about Matthews looking a half-step slower and a...

What’s Eddie Lacy’s Future with the Packers?

In 2016, Eddie Lacy will be playing out the last year of his rookie contract. The workhorse back has been a major piece of the Green Bay Packers’ offense since being drafted in the 2nd round of the 2013 draft. A down year in 2015, however, saw Lacy’s weight and worth ethic called into question. He even briefly lost his starting spot to James Starks (though ultimately winning...

Ted Thompson says Packers will 'draft the best player available'

Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson isn't a knee jerk reaction type of guy, and his drafting record suggests that he doesn't like to use his picks on needs. Despite indicating that he does stray from the script once in a while, but using the best player available strategy has worked out just fine for the team. “I suppose there is,” Thompson said, via ESPN. “I suppose...

Packers: Lerentee McCray Gets Guaranteed Money, Don Barlcay Doesn’t

This time of year in the NFL, when teams sign free agents, it’s usually not a blockbuster deal. When the Green Bay Packers sign any free agent, however, like they did last week with Lerentee McCray, it makes news. In addition to signing the former outside linebacker of the Denver Broncos, the Packers also re-signed offensive lineman Don Barclay to a one-year deal. The signing of...

Rodgers on excessive media coverage: That’s the way it is

Aaron Rodgers isn’t only a superstar who draws a lot of attention on his own, he’s also dating Olivia Munn and lives in L.A. That combination means the Green Bay Packers quarterback and his actress girlfriend can’t even take their dog for a walk without generating headlines on the Internet.

Packers: Don Barclay is a Long Shot for the 53-Man Roster

Few things that Ted Thompson does surprises Green Bay Packers fans anymore, but the whole Packers world was startled somewhat by the re-signing of offensive lineman Don Barclay. Barclay, who played in 16 games for the Packers and started five in 2015, was awful last season. Just awful. The former rookie free agent from West Virginia missed missed the 2014 season due to injury and...

Packers: How Free-Agent Addition Lerentee McCray Fits in 2016

While the 2016 NFL Draft is a little over a week away, Ted Thompson continued his busy offseason this week by signing free-agent outside linebacker Lerentee McCray.

Derrick Henry makes Eddie Lacy look small

Derrick Henry is a large, large man. He’s so large, in fact, that he makes Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy — a guy who’s known as a bigger NFL back — look pretty darn average by comparison.

And reports throughout the offseason suggest he’s recommitted himself to being in better shape heading into the 2016 NFL season. The latest indications that Lacy will be well-prepared to hit the ground running — both literally...
