  1. Packers Sign Treyvon Hester!!!!!!!!!!!

    Treyvon Hester was drafted in the 7th round in 2017 and he made a total of 706 defensive snaps in his career. Montravius Adams was drafted in the same year in the 3rd round and has 466 defensive snaps for his career Hester managed to amass more snaps despite playing on 3 different teams. Adams had far more stability and with very little to show for it. Hester is undoubtably competition for Adams. Based on pro day and combine measurements, physically Adams is just over an inch taller, 4lbs heavier and his wing span is 2 inches longer despite both of these guys having the same arm length which implies Adams has broader shoulders. Hester hand is almost an inch larger than Adams. Athletically i'm unable to compare as Hester never did any testing.
  2. 3.94 - Josiah Deguara [TE; Cincinnati]

    Since my country cannot view madison.com I had to go and find the tape myself. I think this the play LaFleur was referencing:
  3. Other than highlights no I have not seen him play but I liked his style. He plays with nice quickness and energy. He doesn't look like has the frame to pack on 20lbs. His body is not like Ramsey who was similarly undersized but he has the frame to pack weight on. Galeai's game is based on movement and putting on too much weight will hamper that. In many ways he's like Fackrell, tall and slim framed. He may be able to put on about 10lbs without hurting his quickness. Unfortunately for him even trying to add weight doesn't resolve the problem of Pettine preferring heavier edge rushers. Whilst Pettine is here I don't see how he makes the team as an edge rusher. I think he has no choice but to try and make a name for himself as an ILB. It would be the easiest way for him to get onto the roster. If anything I think it may suit his own skillset as he works best in open space and use his pass rushing experience as a blitzer. Edit: Watching the tape against LSU (https://youtu.be/UtDkBkecZoY) exposed his weaknesses and how he has been misused. He's far too easily moved out of the way in the run game and he was lining up over guard in 3 man rush sets (WTF!?). The RT just kept him quiet all game. He looks far more comfortable when he has space and that's why I think ILB might be good for him.
  4. Nobody seems to know the new roster sizes rules for the final roster and practice squad. I can't quite seem to pin it down as I got varying different answers from different parts of the internet. Under the old rules we had a 53 man roster of which 46 are game day actives. The practice squad consisted up to 10 players. Under the new rules it seems there's two main different interpretations. #1. 55 man roster of which 48 are game day actives. The practice squad can consist up to 12 players. Simple. #2. 53 man roster of which 48 are game day actives, 2 practice squad guys can be called up to the roster each week to make 55. The practice squad can consist of up to 12 players. Apparently there are funny rules in place regarding those additional 2 game day actives. One of the two has to be an offensive lineman. Why? - I have no idea. In 2022 the practice squad will increase to 14 but we don't need to worry about that now. =================================================================================================================================== I think the #2 interpretation makes a lot of sense because that means teams now have the flexibility to bring players up from the practice squad without having to worry about cutting anyone. The Packers.com writer Mike Spofford said his current interpretation of the roster size rules seems to indicate that it is indeed interpretation #2. So i'm going to base my 53 man roster prediction on this. =================================================================================================================================== QB: Rodgers | Love [2] FB/HB: Deguara | J'Jones [2] RB: A'Jones | AJ Dillion | J.Williams | Ervin [4] TE: Sternberger | Tonyan | Lewis [3] WR: Adams | Funchess | Lazard | EQ | MVS | Kumerow [6] OL: Bakthari | Jenkins | Linsley | Turner | Wagner | Runyan | Light | Patrick | Nijman [9] DL: Clark | Lowry | Keke | Lancaster | Adams [5] OLB: Z'Smith | P'Smith | Gary | Ramsey | D'Scott [5] ILB: Kirksey | Martin | Bolton | Galeai [4] CB: King | Alexander | Sullivan | Hollman | Jackson | Ento [6] SS: Amos | Greene [2] FS: Savage | V'Scott [2] ST: Crosby | JK Scott | Bradley [3] TOTAL: Offence [26] | Defence [24] | ST [3] = 53 I really like some of the UDFA prospects. J'Jones has some nice receiving chops with lots of quickness and agility for his size, He would add depth to the TE group and provide a backup solution for Deguara without having to move Sternberger. The other guy I really like is D'Scott, he's just big and long and plays with good attitude and personality on the field. To be honest I prefer his tape over our 7th round pick Garvin. Finally, this is a total luxury pick for me but I chose Galeai as our swing OLB/ILB. He just looks natural on the field, got some quickness and energy about him and always seems to be around the ball. At the moment i'm debating whether I should drop a WR for another RB because of the direction the offence is evolving towards under LaFleur. LaFleur wants his team to be more compact and physical using the run to set up the play action. That means more RBs and TEs. I feel six WRs is too many for LaFleur's offence. I think five WRs is more realistic. Its not MM offence anymore with 6 or 7 WRs. Another RB would mean either D'Williams or P'Taylor sneaking onto the roster. Picking the OL was tough. I still believe Lane Taylor will be a cap casualty, Light and Runyan are well positioned to backup both guard and tackle. Patrick should make it as backup centre due to his contract extension last season and that should push Hanson off the roster. Nijman is our biggest and most athletic OL - i'm curious to see how much he has improved, he has a real shot of landing the RT spot if everything goes right for him. I'm assuming Stepaniak will be placed on PUP. The DL is fairly predictable as we haven't really added anyone of note to change the status quo but I honestly can see us cutting Adams and just use Z'Smith and rotate him in. It would allow Gary to have more snaps on the outside. Doing so would free up a spot for another DB perhaps. I think our OLB group is deep this year and for me it makes sense to stockpile as many as we can on the roster. The Packers have a history of doing this with other deep position groups. That's why I'm keeping five. I like Ramsey - he has something about him and he would add a nice speed wrinkle to the OLB group. Scott as I explained earlier has some real nice traits. Our ILB group has completely changed. Kirksey and Martin are obvious choices to make the roster. Bolton was so impressive for me in preseason last year especially in coverage. Galeai is interesting because he moves around so well. He has experience as an edge rusher taking on OTs so in theory he should be capable of taking on run blocks as an ILB. He got a bit of Fackrell in him and I bet that exactly how the Packers plan to use him. Whilst keeping four ILB is highly unlikely I do think with this group we will finally see an improvement with our coverage abilities in the middle. Ty Summers doesn't make the cut even though he's a tackling machine, he had some issues with run stopping and I don't think he has any coverage skills to shout about. Oren Burks is gone. Right now the defensive back group more or less pick themselves. We will definitely keep at least six corners. We might see some surprising changes at the bottom of the corner group. I think V'Scott could be seen as an upgrade over Redmond as he's bigger, stronger and probably quicker, especially on special teams. I'm not quite sure what V'Scott actual position is but i'm assuming he's a free safety. What do you think? Please submit your roster predictions and give reasons where you can.
  5. UDFA showcase showdown 2020 (MNF)

    She doesn't do porn mate. A classy lady like her likes to keep things a mystery.
  6. UDFA showcase showdown 2020 (MNF)

    Here are the pictures of all our UDFAs. Interestingly 8 of the 15 UDFA are from the state of Texas, its quite unusual to see so many players from one state - there's much more to America than just Texas. For more details about each of them you can click on the links below: https://packerswire.usatoday.com/2020/04/30/breaking-down-packers-15-undrafted-free-agents-in-2020/ https://www.packers.com/news/packers-agree-to-terms-with-rookie-free-agents https://www.acmepackingcompany.com/nfl-draft-2020-packers/2020/4/27/21237570/packers-2020-udfa-class-mix-college-production-athletic-upside-marc-antoine-dequoy-stanford-samuels This post is a bit long so if you would like to minimise scrolling just close the quote boxes to hide the photos. I haven't gone through all the tape but so far I like the look of Patrick Taylor, Delontae Scott, Tipa Galeai and Jordan Jones. I really like Patrick Taylor's tape. He also physically and athletically similar to Jamaal Williams. He ran for over 1000 yards and scored 16 TDs last season. The year before he scored 13. Highly productive. He should compete with Dexter Williams for a roster spot. https://youtu.be/k0eBbmH7q8s Frankie Griffin is an extremely undersized linebacker at 6ft and 202lbs. Made zero interceptions in college - his production was on sacks and forced fumbles. He's probably a box safety only in NFL and that limited versatility does not bode well for his chances. Very well built though. Delontae Scott is a tall and long outside linebacker who produced 10.5 sacks last season. He's 6'5" and 246lbs. He's quite interchangeable playing inside and outside on the line. Obviously at his current weight he won't be able to do that in the NFL but he can definitely add weight and model his game after Preston Smith. https://youtu.be/XE8wZ2xw3DE Henry Black is a SS and is 5'11" and 206lbs. Will turn 24 in January. After 4 years at Baylor he finally established himself recording a 62 tackles, 4 passes defended, 1 forced fumble and 1 interception. Travis Bruffy is a very tall OL (Just how LaFleur likes them) at 6'5" and 305lbs. He played LT. https://youtu.be/H0n8125k9L4 Tipa Galeai. He's an 6'5" and 235lbs EDGE rusher. Clearly he is too lightweight to play as an edge rusher in the NFL. He will have to move to ILB in the pros. He's certainly athletic and moves well enough to make the transition. https://youtu.be/pkiE8lttUjc Willington Previlon is a prototypical Pettine sized DE. Barely made any sacks in college which tells me pass rush isn't his forte, so its likely he will have to mold himself into an run stopper at the next level. Stanford Samuels III - it's instantly obvious right away from his highlights and combine tape that he isn't particularly athletic. Compared to his peers his muscle definition is completely under developed. He looks like a skinny schoolboy with a well toned slim body. You don't want a schoolboy in the NFL, you want a man. https://youtu.be/LfvGNA4jpjI Marc-Antoine Dequoy has been labeled as a corner, I wonder if he's the only white corner in the NFL right now? He's already 25 which makes him an extremely long shot to become an viable NFL corner but with this superb athleticism and good size he has a better chance of finding a role as versatile NFL special teamer. I read somewhere that there's two Zach Johnson's who played at North Dakota State and they both played on the OL! I'm not even sure if the picture is even correct! However I eventually figured out the one of them went undrafted in 2017. That made it easier to identify the correct one. He's 6'6" and just 301lbs. He's been labeled as a guard but at that height and weight it screams OT to me. In fact he was starting right tackle in 2 out of 3 years in college and only transitioned to guard in his senior year to make room for another player. I think his main position will be OT for now. https://youtu.be/0tJY1rnf_ag Krys Barnes is your traditional style ILB but there's nothing about his game that pops out on tape. He moves around a bit without doing a whole lot of anything. He doesn't look very athletic and seems a step slow in reacting to what goes on around him. Lacks the instincts. Sometimes it looks like he has no idea what he's doing when dropping into coverage. https://youtu.be/hFuocbKfxRg Will Sunderland is a tall corner but I can't find any decent tape on him. Darrell Stewart is a nice sized receiver with decent athleticism who is projected to play in the slot. He's somewhat useful with the ball in his hands but is limited as a route runner which hurts his ability to separate. Draft reports says it's a 50/50 toss up as to whether he catches the ball. His speed is fairly ordinary but he's not slow. Right now I don't see him beating out our WRs for a roster spot. https://youtu.be/GmnFGS7K3R8 Limited tape shows Jalen Morton as a prototypical sized QB with a nice arm and decent mobility. The way the ball comes out of his hand is real nice. Definitely worth bringing him in to see what he got. https://youtu.be/z2VFteZqBBw Morton teammate tight end Jordan Jones has a fullback sized body at 6'1" and 255lbs and plays very naturally as a receiver. He has very good agility for his size. In his last college season he put up 497 yards and 4 TDs in just 28 catches, good for an average of 17.8 yards per catch so clearly he can move. Now the question becomes...can he block? is he willing to do the dirty work? I'm not gonna lie - I would love to see him make the roster and he certainly got a chance due to our limited TE depth. There's a lot to like about his tape: https://youtu.be/uPUX8XewXTE

    Former 1st round pick Taco Charlton has been cut. He fits the type of DL that Pettine likes. My question is this....is he any good as a run stopper?
  8. 3.94 - Josiah Deguara [TE; Cincinnati]

  9. 1.26 - Jordan Love [QB; Utah State]

    Preach! I believe. I found it so hypocritical of the media when they spent much of their time slanging off Rodgers for whatever reason and then now we've drafted Love they are all about "oh what about his poor feelings". What a joke. I hate the media.

    If Pettis is not good enough for Shanahan then he's certainly not good enough for LaFleur.
  12. Aaron Rodgers Appreciation Thread 4.20

    No. Rodgers didn't get to become who he is today by being "unbothered". He's an absolutely highly motivated individual and is driven by whatever slight he received over his life and career. All the best ones do. This is just simply another one in a long list of slights and he will respond accordingly. Hopefully with MVP play during his remaining time with us.

    Wasn't that McGinn making that up?
  14. 1.26 - Jordan Love [QB; Utah State]

    His name is going to result in so many amazing headlines. He's literally going to be the media's wet dream. They are going to rip off famous songs. Maybe the fans will probably start singing some of them. When Gute and LaFleur drafted Love: What we're all feeling right now: What Rodgers is feeling right now: When he's still struggling to prove himself: When he plays well: When he plays badly: When he eventually leaves Green Bay: I could go on and on.

    Woooh! Brett Favre had some things to say on Aaron Rodgers and the draft on the Rich Eisen Show.
