Once again, pay more early on so you don't put yourself in cap hell down the road.  I am really enjoying how these contracts have been structured.

Oliver or Tillery the best bets for that at 12.

Anything other than freaking ILB. Heck go edge again although I doubt that. Maybe OT.

regardless it seems like Gute has a plan.

The Packers now have... exactly zero significant holes on the roster. And they have an extra 1.

Let's check ourselves a little bit here. The Broncos offensive line was a dumpster fire last year. Not sure this guy is the second coming of TJ Lang just yet. Not even sure he's going to start for us either.

It's Gute's specialty.

I still think they should look to upgrade the edge in the draft, without forcing a selection though. The Smith’s are nice, but one is inconsistent and one came through in a contract year. A rookie to bring in situationally like Brian Burns would be great who could eventually take over should either bust. Or someone along the line who can rush the passer and step in should Daniels or Clark get injured again. The only position I hope they don’t address in round 1 is receiver. It’s a pretty deep class and I hope they look to set up the defense with more talent and depth.

@CWood21 numbers are in for landon collins

Still doesn't change anything for me.  If it's down to Amos at 4/$37M or Collins at 6/$84M, I'm taking Amos everytime.

I'd wait to see the actual structure.  That likely includes the signing bonuses too...

Nah, you don't sign a backup to a contract like that. He's 100% our starting RG.

More like Ball’s .. which is why they wanted to keep him.

pretty sure 11M in year one means SB plus first year salary.  so the SB will be on the future year cap.

This contract is actually weighted toward the back end, and should have dead cap money if we were to move on later on.

Yes, but 21 of Amos' 37 mil is in the first two years.  Preston only has 16 mil guaranteed.  Turner is paid early.  

There could be more to it, but the early numbers certainly suggest a pattern that I personally like.

The Packers didn't just pay Turner $7M/year to be a backup.  He's our starting RG.

Devin White at ILB would create a interior pass rush.  If he's the best play available at 12, take him.

If he’s the BPA trade back and let someone else have him. Blitzing your ILB isn’t inside pressure sorry. Collapsing the pocket is what we also require. The edge players we just picked up allow us to likley blitz less and get pressure with our front. A good IDL is on my draft list. And there are a few. Heck I could see a double dip now.
