    the sad thing is that we desperately need an ILB

    problem is, there isn't much in the draft. one guys too small, and the other has never covered anyone

    and then of course there isn't much talent in free agency either

    i think i'd like to drop capers and switch to a 4-3, we just don't have the bodies to play 3-4 and it doesn't look like we're gonna be able to find any outside the team either

    and while we're at it, get rid of the fucking zone coverage bullshit that leaves 15 yard holes all over the field

    I like what I saw of Lorenzo Mauldin in the Senior Bowl. He's listed at 6'4" 252 lbs. He was covering guys all over the field. He looked very agile for his size. I think Paul Dawson is the real deal too. He's 6'2" 230 lbs. Dawson is projected as a 2nd rounder, but his stock is climbing. Mauldin is project at a 3-4 round pick.

    Size is relative. You can be big and slow, physically and football IQ wise. I'll take Dawson's size if it means speed. I'm sick of seeing TE's outrun our LB's!


    This is what I like most about Mauldin: Looks the part of a brawler, doesn't he?

    This is what drives me nuts about scouting reports...

    On PAUL DAWSON, LB, TCU...

    From NFL DRAFT SCOUT.COM:
    "...Tackles low, wrapping ball-carriers securely...shows only average strength and technique to disengage from blockers once they've latched on."

    From the same web page:
    "...Dawson is a reliable open-field tackler who hits ball-carriers in their legs and wraps securely..."

    From NFL Draft Tracker:
    "...Not a wrap-up tackler...When blocked, doesn't stay wired to blocks..."

    This is why I like prospects I've seen play with my own eyes.

    Plus, it's why Ted Thompson knows what he's doing, and I don't!

    I watched film of Jesse James and he was pretty darn Finley like.

    After watching the Senior Bowl, I'm kinda drifting toward Nick Boyle. He's 6'6" and 270 lbs. He runs well and has fairly good hands.

    I haven't seen Maxx Williams play, but he might require a 1st round pick to get. Don't know if I want him that bad.
    Funchess really seems like the Finley clone, in every way you think of Finley. Great talent, head case. Didn't see Boyle, James seemed just OK to me.

    I can't talk about Williams in an unbiased manner. He looks like the real deal, but how do you really tell with an offense so dedicated to running the ball. Character-wise, he's what the Packers want. He will be solid. Won't go after the ball when he should be blocking. Will know the playbook before camp - a Cobb type - just loves to play football.
    I'm kinda dumb, but I love you

    I think a Witten clone is more desirable than a deep threat. The kid from Miami or ND could possibly be that type.

    In this guy's draft, he has Shaq Thompson out of the top 50 (lol). If Thompson drops from the top 15, I'd be surprised.

    If the picks fell as this guy projects, I'd be disappointed. IMO Bernardrick McKinney is over-rated and slow as molasses. Combine results will tell the story.

    Also, Kikaha is listed at 6'3" 246 lbs and projected as an OLB in the NFL.

    If the guy is looking for the Pack to draft a DL-man Carl Davis and Arik Armstead are available on his own board instead of McKinney.

    Some might be downgrading him due to lack of size, and he probably doesn't have the frame to gain much weight. Still, he's an explosive player who will probably impress at the Combine. Three mocks at CBSSportsline have him going no later than 21.

    3 comp picks for the Packers, 2-6th rounder (EDS, James Jones) and a 1-7th rounder (Marshall Newhouse). CJ Wilson would qualify but he is not among the Top 32 losses and doesn't get a pick.

    Last year, all the typical projections undervalued a lot of the picks. Hopefully we still get 5ths for EDS and especially JJ.

    One of my favorite later-round players is LB Ramik Wilson from Georgia. He's not a physical freak, but he's goodgot good tools and is oozing with instinct. I could see him as this year's version of what's his face from Wisconsin. Sans the injury history. We would get him with a 4th, and possibly with a 5th.

    Yes. I've had my eye on him too. I don't think there's value at the ILB position early, but he would be a good 4th round pick. Because of the weakness of the ILB position in this draft, he won't last past the 4th if that.

    Green Bay Packers draft prospect: Nick O'Leary

    BY: Josh McPeak 12h ago

    ** During his final season for the Seminoles. The consensus All-American would also take home the John Mackey Award - the most outstanding tight end in the country.

    ** He set the career receptions mark for a tight end at Florida State with 114 receptions.

    ** While at FSU, Nick O’Leary was part of a National Championship winning team as well as three consecutive Atlantic Coast Conference championships. He is no stranger to success or to big games."

    ** If he's drafted he might go a long way toward solving the Packers poor Red Zone performance.

    woodbuck27:

    As an added bonus for his NFL QB.

    If Nick O'Leary is drafted then maybe Aaron Rodgers would meet the Golden Bear and maybe play golf with him.

    Remember the name Jean Sifrin when watching the NFL Scouting Combine.

    Massachusetts tight end Jean Sifrin is another who has not taken a normal route to the combine.

    Sifrin -- who was born in the Bahamas -- is 27 years old. He played basketball and football at powerhouse Miami Norland -- other former Norland players in this draft include Miami tailback Duke Johnson and UM offensive tackle Ereck Flowers, and Pittsburgh Steelers star Antonio Brown is another ex-Norland player - but dropped out in 2005, his senior year, to work.

    He eventually received his GED and decided he wanted to give college a try. He attended two junior colleges, one in New York and one in California; UMass found him at El Camino CC in California, where he played the 2013 season.

    Sifrin had 42 receptions for 642 yards (15.3 yards per catch) and six TDs this past season at UMass; he then decided to enter the draft a year early.

    He was listed at 6-foot-7 and 250 pounds by UMass, and for a guy that big, he moves well and is surprisingly agile. While raw, he has good hands and put up solid stats in UMass' pass-happy offense (the Minutemen coach is former NFL assistant Mark Whipple).

    The above is from an article on NFL.com http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...lines-to-watch

    Somewhere else I read that he runs a 4.6 40 yard dash, which is pretty good for a 6-7, 250 pound guy. That one catch in the end zone is pretty sweet. He is 27, though.

    Comment woodbuck27:

    This article is about the cornerback position and what is necessary to be good or respected at this vital position in a passing game. The article will inform you of available draft prospects.

    CB Tramon Williams 31 years old is a UFA and had a CAP hit of $9.5M$ in 2014. CB Davon House and Jarrett Bush CB'/ST's are also Free Agents.

    The team cannot have enough good CB's and no doubt Ted Thompson will address this position in the Off Season
