With their final five picks of the 2013 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers opted for a fairly simple approach.
Reinforce the front seven and add depth at wide receiver. No, literally, that was it.
A defensive tackle, two linebackers and two wideouts comprised the rest of Green Bay’s draft Saturday.
We’ll discuss these picks in the order [...]
As I type this, the draft is still going on. We’re well into round six, in fact.
But with the Green Bay Packers having so many picks – 10 in all at the start – on the final day of the draft, it seemed like a good time to check in with an early report on [...]
“No running backs this weekend, folks.”
Who wrote that just a couple of days ago? Who would say such a thing?
Well, that would be me.
In a move that a lot of Green Bay Packers fans wanted, but one yours truly did not expect at all, the Packers selected Alabama running back Eddie Lacy with the 29th [...]
Everyone knew the Green Bay Packers needed to use the 2013 NFL Draft to get better along the defensive line.
The Packers definitely have some talent at that spot, some of it high-end (B.J. Raji). But there was still something missing. There wasn’t that consistently fearsome presence off the edge.
There just might be now.
With the 26th [...]
It’s here. It’s finally here!
We sit just 18 hours away from the Super Bowl of the NFL offseason. That’s right – it’s just about time for the NFL Draft.
(Sorry, I just can’t help myself.)
For fans of our beloved Green Bay Packers, what happens tonight through Saturday is of particular importance. As we know, Ted [...]
I promised you a second part of our early offseason primer for the Green Bay Packers and dammit, that’s what you’re going to get.
Part one, for those who missed it (shame on you if you are one such person), can be found here. In part two, we’re talking contracts, the draft and free agency, [...]
The 2012 season is over for the Green Bay Packers. And, yes, many are still trying to get over the San Francisco defeat and trying not to think of what could’ve been.
But, as we all know, the NFL never stops. That means it’s time to begin piecing together what the 2013 edition of the Packers [...]
So it’s been a minute since I’ve last written for the site.
It feels like I’ve been saying that a lot lately. That’s because, well, I have.
My reasons are, of course, legit. First it was vacay-time; then I got sick; and, finally, I’ve been out of town attending my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. I don’t forsee [...]
The Green Bay Packers put a significant emphasis on the defensive line in this year’s draft.
By selecting Mike Neal (Purdue, second round) and C.J. Wilson (East Carolina, seventh round), the team made it clear it felt more size and depth needed to be added up front. And by officially moving B.J. Raji (RAJI!) and Ryan [...]
Look a little closer and you’ll see that this group has the chance to make a rather significant impact, both next season and for years to [...]
