  1. Sacks from the 1st 4 games

    Bulaga was returning from a serious knee injury. Taylor has a nagging injury too. The OL arrow is really pointing up in 2019. I expect a much better start to the season.
  2. Packers UDFA Class

    The guys I like most: Nate Brooks is a savvy and extremely athletic CB who lacks top speed. I like his chances. Curtis Bolton is undersized but pretty fast ILB prospect who could bring some pass coverage and special teams coverage talent Greg Roberts is a long, high upside OLB prospect who has a chance Yosh is a huge guy who runs fast at OT and has a chance to develop Larry Williams is a Lane Taylor kinda OG prospect Manny Wilkins is a strong armed, competitive QB who’s kinda skinny but has a shot Darrius Shepherd could stick around as a practice squad guy and maybe fill in as a slot guy and punt returner some day
  3. Who's your 2019 Breakout Player

    After seeing how well Tyler Lancaster played, I was curious which of our UDFAs have that kind of potential. Bobmcginnfootball has a nice write up on this years prospects. We have a big OT, a skinny but talented QB and four defensive guys who all splashed with measurable and production in college. So we’ll see. A bunch of them look to have a shot again this year. Hopefully it helps round out our draft class. And if Gute can keep the reputation of the Packers giving the best shot to UDFAs, it won’t hurt so bad when we spend a couple picks to get our guy in the first or second round.

    I think it has a chance.
  5. Who's your 2019 Breakout Player

    Tyler Lancaster is a dark horse. Dude showed some strength and power last year. And has some speed and foot quickness that make you think he has a little pass rush that can be coached out of him too. He might just impress this year.
  6. 5[150]: Kinsley Keke [DL; Texas A&M]

    PFF DL grades for 2018 Montravius Adams - 69.3 above average Mike Daniels - 71.3 above average Dean Lowry - 73.8 above average Tyler Lancaster - 77.5 above average Kenny Clark - 90.5 high quality Lancaster only played 25% of snaps so his fatigue being down and health being up probably skewed his grade. Still, that’s a good group of DL. I’d definitely be looking to extend Lowry right now. Also Blake Martinez, but that’s a different topic. Gotta think Adams will take one more step forward this year and beat out the rookie for playing time. Same for Lancaster. Dude played well. Even if he was a 4th round pick we’d be happy. I don’t think we’ll see much of keke this year, but next year when Daniels is gone, keke is gonna have a wide open shot to work into the interior pass rush rotation. I guess a somewhat ideal situation would be for keke to get bigger, faster, stronger for most of the year and then fill in for injury late in the season when he’s got fresh legs against beat up OL. He might look pretty good out of the gate if that happens. Pettine has a bunch of workable pieces. I’m excited for keke and Lancaster and maybe even Adams too.

    I’m hoping for Jason Spriggs to all of a sudden become an above average starter. It would make next offseason a lot more comfortable. I really want to be comfortable letting Bulaga go. Plus, Bulaga is probably going to miss time this year too. He usually does.

    I agree showing the formulas would be helpful for us to understand and fully appreciate the work. But also, I think it’s a good thing to be respectful and appreciative when someone does put together something new like he did here.

    That’s what I see too, FG. I hope it’s now. I really do. Jordy didn’t really come on till his 3rd/4th seasons. Davante Adams had some early struggles. Nick Collins took a couple years...... TJ Lang took a little bit. Indiana doesn’t produce NFL ready lineman. So one or two off years almost makes sense. Plus, physically it took him a couple years to get NFL size. So this is the first year I’d say he’s physically in his prime. There is a chance for Spriggs. But if he doesn’t play well this year, I’m done with any hope.

    Seems solid to me

    I hope Spriggs breaks out. But man, he’s had every chance to pass up guys like McCray and Bell yet couldn’t. He could be a late bloomer though. I hope so. And him not stepping forward in a scheme designed for him, that’s gotta be the nail in the coffin, no? I want him to do well. I give him a chance to do well. But he’s had a lot of chances to prove he’s a solid NFL player and should start yet he just hasn’t been able to get past 3rd string. Im not trying to argue with coaches or personnel guys. I’m just going off what they chose (to make spriggs a last resort) and I’m assuming the line coaches understand line play. Maybe they don’t though and there are better professionals here. I doubt that, but that’s where my opinion comes from. Im not making random guesses. I’m trusting the coaches decisions and putting weight on that. brand new set of coaches. Spriggs has to be running out of excuses.

    First of all, nice work. You found combine performance not to matter much? draft position sort of goes against what we do here. I would like to see both, one with draft position factored in and another without. To see how NFL teams picked against your model. I wonder if you could make a slight modifier for large schools and for schools with nfl style offenses? i wonder if you could make a slight athletic performance modifier too? Slight, just to affect the AV in the small degree in which it is applicable. I would guess your draft position inclusion already does that, but again, I’d want to see your model against their picking, to see where they fall.

    You could factor in some production pieces too, like: yards per game % of total offense ypg to account for just being a part of a bad passing attack Power conferences could get a little edge NFL style offenses could get a little edge touch downs adjusted for total passing offense If you added that in, I would think you could get even closer.

    What is factored in?
