If I Were The GM

I hate when a year or two after the fact people say they would’ve drafted this guy instead of this guy. It’s too easy. So I decided to pick along with GM Brian Gutekunst and make my selections right before he made his. These were my picks: Round 1 (#26) – As expected, Gutekunst traded

Quick-Snap Review: Jordan Love

The Green Bay Packers traded up in the first round to select Utah State quarterback Jordan Love. The cost was a fourth-round pick. Here’s a quick analysis: PROS 1) Love has the physical traits that get quarterbacks drafted in the top-10. He has size (6-4, 225), speed (4.7), and a rocket for a right arm.

Preview: 2020 NFL Draft

After missing the playoffs for two consecutive seasons, the Packers bounced back in a big way under rookie head coach Matt LaFleur. But getting from the NFC championship game to the Super Bowl will take more than another four months of fortuitous calls, close wins, and incredible health. It’ll take a really strong draft –

Gutey’s Got A Type

If the first three girls someone goes out with have long blonde hair, there’s no guarantee that the next girl will also have long blonde hair, but the odds are pretty good. Everybody has a type – be it a high school senior looking for a prom date or an NFL general manager looking for

Mocking The Packers

I‘ve never been a fan of mock drafts, but people seem to love them. So here’s my first effort at predicting what will happen next week. Green Bay picks 30th, and while general manager Brian Gutekunst will talk about taking the best player available, the reality is he’s going to try to fill a need

Preview: 2019 NFL Draft

After making the playoffs for eight straight seasons, Green Bay has fallen on hard times recently. It was easy to blame an injury to Aaron Rodgers for the 7-9 finish in 2017, but there was no such excuse for the 6-9-1 debacle of 2018. That record was well earned. Uninspired coaching and a series of

Preview: Free Agency

Free agency officially begins on Wednesday, and if the Packers are going to rebound after back-to-back losing seasons, general manager Brian Gutekunst is going to have to perform a lot better than he did a year ago. Signing younger players would be a good way to make that happen. The Packers acquired five free agents

Packers Go Big At Receiver

The Packers had eight picks on day 3 of the draft, and Brian Gutekunst used them in unique ways. The first-year general manager triple-downed on wide receivers and became the only GM to select both a punter and a long snapper in the same year (Bill Belichick and the Pats drafted a long snapper and a

Another Day, Another Corner

Three years after taking corners back to back in rounds 1 and 2 (Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins), the Packers did it again. Less than 24 hours after selecting Jaire Alexander, GM Brian Gutekunst doubled down with Josh Jackson. Incredibly, Green Bay has now picked five corners in rounds 1 and 2 since 2015. With

Another Draft, Another Corner

The first 13 picks couldn’t have worked out any better for the Packers on Thursday night in Arlington, Texas. With four quarterbacks and offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey selected in the top 9, new general manager Brian Gutekunst had his choice of either Virginia Tech’s 19-year-old linebacker Tremaine Edmunds or Florida State’s dynamic hybrid safety Derwin
