  1. Have fun mock'n my mock

    It's not that bad of a mock except for the fact that Sternberger will go at 75 while Nelson will probably go at 114 if we were to select those two. I love me some Jacko though!
  2. 2019 Draft Discussion

    We're not looking for a WR1 out of Isabella, we have plenty of boundary guys that could become a WR1 if they develop. What we need is that smaller, shiftier player and I think Isabella would be that guy. I don't hate Brown, but Isabella's a far better fit in the slot. He won't make it past New England at either 64 or 73, but if he did, I'd run up to the podium as fast as I could at 75; 44 is way too early for him, definitely agree with you there. All MVS does is find ways to be productive; sure he had a rough patch towards the end of the season, but who didn't? Seriously... ESB should become a solid WR3 that should earn a second contract. I'd compare Hakeem Butler to him. Both are tall and offer you a lot of physical traits you want, but they're erratically inconsistent, which is why I think Butler slips all the way to the 3rd; although he's more Ramses Barden to me although he shouldn't bust like Barden did depending on which team he goes to.
  3. 2019 Packers Schedule

    I really hate this schedule and I can't see why some are saying we have either a forgiving schedule or an easier schedule. Super late bye as others have said, but I don't like that second half of the season from Week 8 on at all and I don't like that we end on the road either against two division teams who will be fighting for playoff spots IMHO. At least we get a break after probably going 1-2 at best in Weeks 8-10. I know we've gotta play the teams that are rotated to us, but I really hate this schedule and see an 11-5 team at best; more-or-less a 9-7 team with a couple of bad losses against lesser opponents.

    Agreed. I'd take Gonzalez at 12 any day...
  5. 2019 Draft Discussion

    My bad. Agreed. Pretty hard to even consider evaluating players because you don't know what the next coach will do. Kind of unfair for the players IMO. It's also why we we're in a wait-n-see period with the WR's we currently have.
  6. rcon14 Mock 5.0

    Agreed, I'd love to double-dip at Safety as well, but if I'd rather get a better EDGE, DL, OL, or another TE that's the better value. It'll be interesting to see how Jones and Greene are used this year.
  7. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Consider the offense and what was happening around him. I have a sneaking suspicion that Sternberger will be our pick at 75... Kiper and McShay are mocking receivers to us because they think that's the only way we're going to win games. Aaron's issues with the offense had nothing to do with the players and everything to do with the scheme. Then you're talking about a defense that's trying to recover from 6 years too many of Dom. IIRC both Brown and Isabella have visited. I prefer Isabella, but he's probably not getting past all of those 2nd round picks New England holds, especially now that Hogan has left. I agree with you on MVS. He's going to emerge as a WR2 this year unless he hits some sort of slump. Little less confident in ESB, but if he can function out of the slot... Allison is a utility WR as far as I'm concerned; you stick him somewhere and tell him which route to run and he'll find a way to make Aaron throw him the ball. I wouldn't say Moore had a good preseason at all.
  8. rcon14 Mock 5.0

    I'd go with a different player at 44. Trysten Hill is going to go a lot earlier than expected, but I think Jeffrey Simmons at 44 may be the better selection long-term. Winovich's vision is a turn off for me and he's kind of a one-trick pony as a pass-rusher. Very raw. Other than that, I really like what you did in the second half of this in particular. Also, I could see Gettleman giving up that much to move up just a few spots. Hockenson at 17 is also fair value as well. I can't believe some are mocking him top-10; 12 is too early for him as well.
  9. 2019 Draft Discussion

    I could see MVS as a viable #2 option. May not be tomorrow, but I bet he makes a push late in the regular season unless he has a sophomore slump. Also, I'm not sold that Butler is a WR1 entering the league. He may develop into one, but he is way too inconsistent both at the point of production and at from a technique stance.
  10. Packers Pre-Draft Visits Thread

    If Lock is there at 30, I'd be more than happy to take someone's 2nd of this year and 2nd of next year for the pick. Then again, I'm a little uneasy with the value that may be there at 30.
  11. 2019 Draft Discussion

    If Aaron doesn't slip to our pick in 2005, do we trade up to get him though? I think we look to the 2020 draft for a QB if we go first round. Yeah, that's definitely a "buy" for me. Does he develop or develop to a point where you want to take a risk on him in the event the team that drafts him is an unresolvable mess like Miami.
  12. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Here are the negatives on Lock as per nfl.com Frustrating inconsistencies with accuracy and touch Fires fastballs on easy, short throws when changeup is needed Arm thrower with truncated follow-through Leaves ball behind his targets on crossers and slants Drops arm slot, leading to batted passes Requires more disciplined footwork from the pocket Production falls off a cliff when forced to move his feet Inconsistent squaring to throw when on the move Poise and decision-making appear tied to level of pressure he sees Drifts back and away from the rush and forces himself into low-percentage throws Lamb-killer with just 14 TDs and 7 INTS against SEC opponents in 2018 Confused and unsteady against Alabama and Georgia with multiple turnovers Hell...to the no! Also, anyone else notice Jachai Polite tumbling down the boards? CBS has him at 104 and Drafttek has him at 82...
  13. 2019 Packers Schedule

    I'd want the Chiefs game late in the season simply because they may be resting players over the last 2 or 3 games. We SHOULD get them at home I'd assume...
  14. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Bush at 12 is worse than Lock at 30. If Lock is actually there at 30, it MAY be worth considering given what's on the board at that point. I'd like to know what kind of drugs were available to him when he drew this one up. Johnson's a Day 3 pick...
  15. Packers Pre-Draft Visits Thread

    I was hoping to draft Pettis as well, but was ok with the Jackson pick simply because he had a first round grade by so many and I thought he should've gone between picks 25-35. He went to us at 45. Totally agreed. This class is worse than the 2013 class. Murray will bust and bust VERY hard. Haskins will be overdrafted and, hopefully for his sake, plays behind someone his first year to adjust. I think he'll be a mediocre Alex Smith-esque QB at the next level.
