  1. Player Rankings + RAS

    I was listening to the Pack A Day podcast yesterday and the creator of RAS (https://relativeathleticscores.com/) was on. He spoke about how the Packers are one of the most predictive teams in the NFL with regards to selecting athletes. We spoke about it in one of the threads as well: in the last two drafts we've selected two players ranked below 7.7 RAS. So with that in mind I created a spreadsheet this morning that combines rankings of players from different sources (currently only TDN and PFF pre-combine) and their RAS. I averaged the rankings of the big boards then averaged that ranking with their RAS to give players a score. The lower the score the higher they rank on our board. I used TDN's top 100 as a template and threw out anyone with an RAS below 8 to save time. I also have not listed anyone who has not worked out. Issues: I need to add more player rankings. PFF's pre-combine big board only went to 50 so anyone not listed I scored a 51. We don't have RAS scores for everyone until after pro days. To Do: More rankings. Delete PFF's big board. Update after pro days. If anyone's interested in a link to the spreadsheet PM me. It's pretty disorganized right now.
  2. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Big fan of Jelks and Ozigbo. But my main issue is in year 1, unless there’s a surprise, we’d be getting around 1000 snaps out of our first four picks. Contrast that to Jackson and Alexander last year getting 1500 between the two of them.

    Big difference between the two is Rodgers was slow, Smith is fast. It might mean more for an NFL career.
  4. 2019 Draft Discussion

    2018 Avg. RAS = 8.895 2017 Avg. RAS = 8.414 2016 Avg RAS = 7.3571 The last two drafts the only people below 7.7 were Jamaal Williams (4.75) and Cole Madison (4.57). Irv Smith, Jr.'s RAS is 4.76; likely too low but we may take a chance if he's there in the 4th.
  5. First Mock ever. Only mock

    Cutting a starting RT would be a bad move.

    Gotcha. I don’t see the confusion but I apologize for causing any.

    That statement disagrees with me saying they were prepared to move on but would’ve preferred not to?

    I believe that we gave MM every opportunity to succeed in 2018. I don’t believe they wanted to tank the year. I think that Gute/Murphy were prepared to move on but would’ve preferred keeping MM. Im honestly not sure why this is a controversial statement.

    I think in this scenario we might end up calling CJ Anderson.
  10. 2019 Draft Discussion

    I think a lot of how I look at the draft is finding the most value for each pick. The Baker pick gives us potentially the best cornerback from this draft class. Toss him in there and I feel so much better about our nickel defense. Isabella seems to be a pretty unique talent in the draft as well. He's thick, like if he were 6 ft tall but just as dense he'd be 220 pounds. Add to that his route running and 4.3 speed; it's like an upgraded Cobb on a rookie contract. 150 - offensive tackle who is sloppy looking (needs a pro weight room), more athletic than he looks, and a better run blocker than pass blocker right now. 226 - a guy who has all the tools and all the instincts but just doesn't finish plays well. In the 7th I'm looking for special teamers pretty exclusively. Re: QB - why not? Competition never hurts anyone. I liked it when we drafted one every year.

    Dude I don’t even know what you’re arguing here. I’m not making **** up. There’s a huge article in the Atlantic about how they had to reorganize everything last year. Do your research. Again - if you want to believe that they should’ve done it last year that’s fine. I don’t agree. That’s it.

    1. Sure. You know huh? 2. Ok. 3. Because he and Murphy ran it together. 4. 5. The effect of playoff games on the local economy in GB can not be overstated. 6. 7. Believing that this was not a systematic approach from the time Gute was hired, to when they fired MM, to when they made the hire is ignoring all evidence, including your final point. So that’s all we should ask from a GM in finding a coach: a short list of people. Got it.

    Think about this: you just hired a new general manager. We lose a ton of experience in our personnel department. He implements an entire new scouting structure. On top of preparing for free agency and the draft you want to take away that GM to find a head coach. While other people are hiring head coaches left and right. Mind you this head coach hire is so important that literally hundreds of millions of dollars could flow into the city of Green Bay over the course of the next decade if we make the right decision. But you're right, we just hired someone who worked with someone because it seemed right. ...

    That's dumb.
