  1. rcon14 Mock 1.0

    I probably don’t take a tight end in the first, but I look at some that we have passed up in the last few years that would have been great additions such as Goedert last year. I am not sure Hockenson will be there much past the top of the 2nd round and he seems to be the most complete inline tight end in the draft.

    Any thoughts on trading down with pick 12? Maybe Oakland wants a QB at 12 and needs to jump ahead of Miami to draft Drew Locke or Daniel Jones Pick number 12 for picks #27 and #35? About equal on the trade value chart. (1200 points for 1230 points) #27 Edge Burns or Polite #30 (Saints lose to Rams) Tight End Hockenson #35 Guard Lindstrom or Rissner #44 Safety Adderley or Abrams We fill 4 major needs in the first 2 rounds.
  3. LaFleur's Lieutenants - Coordinator/Staff Thread

    Can you keep the football questions out oft this thread? I come here for HR information and you ask a football question. Sheesh! 😏
  4. LaFleur's Lieutenants - Coordinator/Staff Thread

    How about Tony Romo? Probably no interest in coaching and no ties to LaFleur but he sure could be a great coach someday.
  5. Why would you settle for a lesser candidate because of fear of losing a better candidate done the road? Would you marry a lesser person because there may be less risk of divorce or do you marry the person you love the most and makes you the happiest?
  6. Maybe the strategy was to get the best available coach and if he is poached for a HC job in the next 3 years means that the Packers are winning.
  7. LaFleur's Lieutenants - Coordinator/Staff Thread

    I like the above list. I think that we may need to look a little deeper such as offensive quality control type guys. If you look at many of the "young, up and coming offensive minded coaches" some are only 2 or 3 years removed from being QC guys. I really like the intelligence of a guy like Josh McNown if he is ready to retire from playing as a possible QB coach. A name from the college ranks that has run fast paced offenses is Matt Canada (offensive coordinator/ former interim head coach University of Maryland)

    Another potential developmental Tight End is Allen Lazard. Last year at this time he was being mock drafted as someone that could grow into a receiving tight end. 6'5"- 227 lbs. Iowa State University's all time leading receiver.
  9. LaFleur's Lieutenants - Coordinator/Staff Thread

    Any ties to either Mike Kafka or Josh McNown? I can not find that LaFleur was ever at the same place and time as one of the other. However, maybe one of them has a tie through other coaches. I feel that both will be up and coming coaches.

    How about Brant Boyer from the Jets? They were a lot more special than us in our game this year.
  11. Does Zak Taylor come as OC?
  12. I would think that if Fitzgerald became the HC, Mike Kafka would have a role in the offense. Kafka played at NW for Fitzgerald. Not sure if he is ready to be an OC, but he is very highly thought of for his intelligence since his playing days in the NFL as a backup QB. He played with the Eagles, Patriots, Jaguars, Buccaneers, Vikings, Titans, and Bengals so there could be ties to coaches there too. He also could follow Dave Toub if he were hired somewhere.
  13. Do any of these potential head coach candidates have any ties to Josh McCown? He has played on many teams prior to the Jets and I see him as a future up and coming great offensive mind and QB coach. Would he work well with Rodgers?
  14. The Draft and the Offensive Line

    I am satisfied with our current depth at the O-Line barring injury (which I know is probably impossible.) The players that I like the best in this years draft (for the Packers) are: Isaiah Wynn and Austin Corbett because of their versatility in that they played tackle through college but translate as Center or Guard prospects in the NFL. They would be able to be solid swing players to start and then develop into starters down the road. Wynn will probably be drafted by the early 2nd round, so he is out of play for the Packers in my opinion. I like Corbett in the 3rd round or the first pick of round 4. My opinion is that the only time you draft an offensive lineman in the first round is for a stud Left Tackle, the rest of the O-Line can be built with developmental type players taken in the 2nd through 5th round.
  15. Tailgate Beans Draft

    I think that you are reaching in the 7th round, he probably would be available as an UDFA. Is he related to Lawrence Guy from a few years ago? Maybe he can also punt like his great uncle Ray.
