PACKERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Packers get defensive early in Day 3 of NFL draft

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The Packers got defensive again on the third day of the NFL draft. They bolstered depth for a front seven that has had some offseason turnover, and even added an inside linebacker with Clay Matthews headed back outside for more pass-rushing duties again. Matthews will probably like the selection Saturday of Stanford inside linebacker Blake Martinez with the...

Packers Get Even Deeper At OLB

GM Ted Thompson picked the best player available to fill a need in the first 2 rounds, but in round 3 he actually did choose the BPA. With six veteran outside linebackers already on the roster, and a seventh – free agent Mike Neal – only a phone call away, Thompson didn’t have to draft Kyler Fackrell. But he did anyway. In the limited amount of tape I was able to watch in the...

Winners and Losers After 2 Days of the Packers Draft

It’s been a couple of interesting days for the Packers, and Ted Thompson’s Christmas arrived Thursday night. The NFL Draft is through two of the three days in which teams pick from the best college players, and the Pack has come away with three young men who each can make an impact. But with every draft pick comes a player who they replace. And besides, who doesn’t love a good...

Going inside? Packers could target linebacker position again

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Packers general manager Ted Thompson could target the linebacker position again on the third and final day of the NFL draft. The Packers will have four picks on Saturday, with two fourth-rounders and one apiece in the fifth and sixth rounds. Green Bay might look for someone to play inside, with Clay Matthews expected to move back to outside linebacker full...

IU lineman Jason Spriggs drafted by Green Bay Packers

The first Hoosier taken in this year’s NFL draft and IU’s starting left tackle for four seasons, Spriggs was selected by the XX in the second round Friday night. He was officially the No.           

Why Packers’ Pick Makes Sense

After the dust has settled and the first round has ended, let’s take a look back at the Packers’ first round selection. It was a bit comical when the pick was announced. I was watching the ESPN coverage and watched as the cameras panned over the crowd, focusing on Green Bay fans. Shouts of “Go Pack Go” rang through the crowd. Then the words “the Green Bay Packers select...

Aaron Rodgers gets ‘nostalgic’ about his NFL Draft free-fall

One of the most drawn-out, uncomfortable and awkward events in NFL Draft history occurred in 2005 as Aaron Rodgers sat and sat and sat while waiting an excruciating four-and-a-half hours in the green room before finally hearing his name get called. With cameras painfully capturing his every move as name after name — except for his own — were announced, Rodgers became both...

How the Green Bay Packers can nail the draft

The Green Bay Packers arguably rely on the draft more than any team in the league. According to the Packers website 35 of the 62 players on the current roster were drafted. We see time and time again draft picks for the packers, specifically on defense become regular starters. Last year the Packers drafted Damarious Randall who became one of the best young talents on their roster...

Green Bay Packers seven round mock draft

Mock drafts.  They are what have made the likes of ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. so popular this time of year.  It’s where draft experts try and earn their money for how well they can grade each prospect.  For what it is worth, I by no means am on Kiper’s level when it comes to predicting the draft.  But, I like the challenge it is to dive deep into the draft pool and see who would...

Matthews In The Middle

Mike McCarthy seems determined to play Clay Matthews predominantly at outside linebacker in 2016 – a decision that figures to make the team’s second-highest paid player happy, but probably won’t make the defense better. That’s because the 5-time Pro Bowler isn’t the edge rusher he was earlier in his career. I first wrote about Matthews looking a half-step slower and a...

Packers: Lerentee McCray Gets Guaranteed Money, Don Barlcay Doesn’t

This time of year in the NFL, when teams sign free agents, it’s usually not a blockbuster deal. When the Green Bay Packers sign any free agent, however, like they did last week with Lerentee McCray, it makes news. In addition to signing the former outside linebacker of the Denver Broncos, the Packers also re-signed offensive lineman Don Barclay to a one-year deal. The signing of...

Rodgers on excessive media coverage: That’s the way it is

Aaron Rodgers isn’t only a superstar who draws a lot of attention on his own, he’s also dating Olivia Munn and lives in L.A. That combination means the Green Bay Packers quarterback and his actress girlfriend can’t even take their dog for a walk without generating headlines on the Internet.
