On the RB question....I was surprised that we didn't go after the FA Coleman from Atlanta...he didn't get all that much in $$$...

Maybe Gute/ML has spotted a RB that is well within our reach in the draft... has the same multi-talented ability and more likely more than one who will fit the bill..

The more I look at the draft and what the head coach has used in past I believe they will take one of the Iowa TEs and then later on another “project”.  I believe the defense is going to be so much better as players mature, healthier, and new additions that the offensive side of the ball will be targeted in the draft.  None of the WRs are Julio Jones, Green, or Fitzgerald that will be sure fire can’t miss prospects and no running back is the next Barry Sanders so this leaves TE as skill position to make difference.  I truly believe OL needs help but there is not surefire prospect.

Overall I think that is pretty sound thinking. Agree that to think that Jones can carry the load without getting injured is naïve thinking, he has missed time because of injury in every year of his college and pro career. The draft does seem to be setting up for a group of safeties to be there at #44, at this moment safety seems to be a logical 2nd round pick. The RB's the Packers probably are looking at seem mostly like 3rd day types, IMO I believe they can get a quality player to add to the current mix there.

Conrad has been cleared. Would take him over the top 3 three folks are enamored with.  I like A&m's TE, but he can't run block worth a darn.


But on Monday, Conrad announced that he had been medically cleared, and he will have his own Pro Day in April:

I don't think Gute would spend the draft capital on a CB after investing so much in years past..

Pack has had good luck getting help at CB with UDFA and might go back to that method again.

If you look at Gute's FA move, he went after what was needed by his DC on 1st day. young talented and type of player Pettine craves....and he got in a bidding war to get those 2 OLBers who can also play up and down the DL...perfect match for the scheme

Everybody with any working knowledge of the new HC says to look at the 49ers/Shanahan to see what the Packers O will look like. small sample of proof would be the OL Coach he nabbed not because of his experience in coaching OL but he experience in coaching the scheme he wants in GB....thus a coach without much experience but has his experience with the 49ers.....don't think that is by accident or coincidence...

Also if you look at Z Smith signing you will find that Gute's best friend Hendrickson coached OL at the Ravens and vouched for the character of Smith giving a boost to his signing..

Hendrickson was also an area scout for Ravens and his expertise was OL...so....maybe we won't spend a high pick on a OL unless he is really a can't miss target at 12...can we find good OL in lower rounds as before

Also...could Hendrickson bring a little of that " defensive " mentality from the Ravens over here as Player Director which could put a higher Packer choice in a safety or ISLB...something Ravens has always had?

Going back to the 49ers blueprint we are short 2 positions for ML...RB and TE...Jones played last season at around 194# that's just too light and no wonder he has ended u p injured at seasons end

I think RB is higher on our list than maybe we think....and also TE....

Gute looks to me like is listening to his Coaches....DC getting FA that fits nicely into his scheme....and maybe going differently than in previous years as who he coverts in the 1st round....

Unless a top OL slides or one of the top  rushers drops.... I could se one of the top TE's at 12 or one of the top ISLB.....

at #30 we get frosting on the cake...this may be the only BPA in top 2 rounds

RB or a top safety in 2nd at 44

Heh heh, that's funny, RT.  Brings back some memories.  Only scored >14 points in one of those 7 games. 

I'd kinda anticipate something similar this time, both the loss and a very low number of Packers points! 

Not expecting the new offensive system to take off very well in week one against a very good front group of Bears defensemen. 

Especially assuming the new coach with new system will try to establish the commitment to the running game, so will likely be running into the teeth of that defense on a lot of 1st-and-2nd downs during the first half.

As of now, for me anyways, it does have the feel that it mostly will be on the defenses shoulders to win that first game.

 One injury away from disaster at WR. Sorry, We have the chance to add players with Greg Jennings and Desean Jackson type of ceilings. Kumerow and Allison aren't good enough to get us to the SB. Need to add more. People are rabbit holed into defense, Pettine would have had a top 10 defense last year easy if he had a little help from the offense and didn't get decimated by injuries. CHI and Minny have tough defenses, we have to upgrade the offense for years down the line. Janis could have done a better job than what we fielded last year, and he wasn't good enough to keep around, look at stats and target %. My green and gold glasses are off when it comes to the WR group and the future.

https://www.nfl.com/prospects/kahale-warring?id=32195741-5275-2700-ebaf-ccabda046f86

I think this guy is  intriguing.  Scores very high athletically.  NFL.com has him as the 4th rated tight end.  Dane Brugler has him going in the 3rd round.  He won't offer as much in year 1 as some of the other guys but he could be quite good in a few years.

I have thought for a few weeks now that I would be very okay with one of these 3rd round TE's and Warring might be at the top of the list. I think of a young and more athletic Mark Chmura when I see him.
