Undrafted Free Agent Roundup

I haven’t seen many of these undrafted free agents play, but I’m still going to rank them from most likely to make the 53-man roster to least likely. Don’t laugh, Mike Pennell was No. 1 on last year’s list. What’s my process? I look at positions, schools, measurables, talk to a few people and then

Hundley’s A Talented Project

Former Packers GM Ron Wolf would be proud. His protegé, Ted Thompson, finally drafted a quarterback with a legitimate chance to succeed in the National Football League. That’s something the Packers current GM hadn’t done in the past six drafts. Brett Hundley will need at least a year or two of intense coaching, but the

Ryan Offers Hope Inside

Three years ago, I raved about a fourth-round pick from a Big 10 school. That player was Iowa defensive end Mike Daniels. Well, I’m about to do the same thing about another fourth-round pick from a Big 10 school. This time the player is Jake Ryan, the throwback inside linebacker from Michigan who’ll now be

Special Teams Get A Boost

Coach Mike McCarthy vowed to improve the special teams in 2015, and his boss has given him plenty of ammunition to do just that. After adding terrific athletes with his first two picks (Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins), general manager Ted Thompson selected arguably the best special teams player in the entire draft in round

Packers Add Another Corner

The Green Bay Packers drafted a safety in round one who looks like a corner and a corner in round two who looks like a safety. But any way you slice it, Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins are going to add a lot of talent to a secondary that needed to restock itself after losing

Round 2 Has Been Kind To Packers

While round one gets most of the attention, round two has been where general manager Ted Thompson has done some of his best work. In fact, you could make a compelling argument that 3 of last season’s 5 best players (wide receivers Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson and running back Eddie Lacy) were originally selected

Packers Draft Randall At 30

You can’t analyze a defensive back without seeing him live or watching him on the coaches tape, and since I did neither, I have no idea what kind of player first-round draft pick Damarious Randall will be in the National Football League. Nevertheless, I like this choice. Faced with selecting from a group of players

Draft Preview: Corner Is Biggest Need

The Green Bay Packers can be good enough on defense next season with the inside linebackers already on the roster, but they don’t stand a chance of slowing down any decent offense without four good cornerbacks. Right now they have three – and that’s being generous. Micah Hyde is more of a safety when it comes

Bennett Could Be A Steal

One of the few positions you can analyze without watching a player live or on coaches film is the defensive line, so I decided to study some of the top prospects who could be available when the Green Bay Packers pick at 30 on Thursday night. My targets were Oregon’s Arik Armstead, Ohio State’s Michael Bennett,

PN’s 2015 Draft Contest

The NFL Draft starts this Thursday, and I’ve decided to make the most exciting day of the offseason even more exciting by giving you a chance to *win a $50 gift certificate to the Packers Pro Shop. All you have to do is predict the first two players drafted by Green Bay. The rounds don’t
