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 [...]
Two mock drafts down, two more to go until draft day (15 days from now!!).
Since our last mock, three weeks ago, there have been a handful of trades/signings that have caused this third mock to change. But more than anything, the array of pro days and increased overall chatter amongst “insiders” (which we at OBOD are definitely not) [...]
Well, it’s time.
With the NFL scouting combine in full swing and free agency set to begin Friday at 12:01 a.m. EST, we at OBOD figured it would be a good idea to pull together an early mock draft. Like we said in our first mock last year, this baby is likely to change a ton [...]

The biggest prize (literally) in this year’s Free Agent class is off the market. Albert Haynesworth reached a deal early Friday morning with the Washington Redskins for a whopping seven years at $100 million, that could max out at $115 million and contains $41 million in guarantees.
How does this affect the Packers? It doesn’t. They [...]
It is now officially Friday, February 27, and you know what that means: the NFL free agency period has finally begun.
There is some elite talent available and while it is likely that none of these players will have even the most remote contact with the Packers, the fact that they are out there is still [...]
