Kraft is friends with DT, but he is a lifelong Dem and gave money to both BHO's campaigns.

Kraft donated $1 million to the Trump inauguration. That is indeed friendly.
Yes, very friendly! After Kraft's wife died DJT called Kraft every week to offer support and help during a most difficult time for Kraft. Kraft said "Thank You" in his own way.

Nice to know people can still be friends even when one is red and the other blue.


That said, no way CK is going to end up in NE. Agree that this is CC throwing darts blindfolded.

CK will never play another down in the NFL.

There is speculation that part of the agreement with CK is that he will, indeed, be content never to play another down in the NFL. This from PFT: https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/02/16/kaepernicks-agreement-may-include-permanent-separation-clause/

Wonder how much Reid got? After all, he just signed a sweet deal with CAR.

Well, earlier I posted a link to PFT that indicated that CK would agree to not play again. Maybe not. The question being, who would hire him?

If Hockenson is there at #12 and he's the BPA on the Packers board, why in the world would they try and trade down a few spots with hopes he's still there?

If he's your best BPA, you take him at #12.

Maybe we should draft Boykin as a TE then!?

Packers already have one of those tall/heavy WR's on the roster.

Allen Lazard/WR/Iowa State
(2017) Senior year
71 receptions
941 yds
10 TD's


BTW.........Boykin is listed as 6-4/228

I guess I can let the cat out of the bag.  I know Myles personally, I'm 6"3" 220lbs. and he is at least three inches taller than I am and a tat big more weightier and alot more muscular.

I tried attaching a picture, don't think he is 6'2" as you stated and he is closer to 250 at this time.

Here's the ND roster posts:

Miles Boykin | 81
WR | SR |  Notre Dame
Ht: 6040 | Wt: 225 | Upd: 12/29/2018
Hometown: Tinley Park, IL | High School: Providence Catholic


Citrus Bowl MVP (2018)

Led team during the regular season with 803 receiving yards on 54 catches and eight TDs
Had at least one TD catch in six straight games (STAN, VT, PITT, NAVY, NW, FSU), the longest such streak by an Irish WR since Will Fuller in 2014
Eclipsed 100 receiving yards in three games and had two games with multiple TD catches
Snared 11 receptions for 144 yards and a score against Stanford
Made a pair of TD catches among eight receptions for 117 yards at No. 24 Virginia Tech
Had four catches and two TD grabs against Navy

Not going to argue with this one.

Some idiot team will sign him.  One thing you don't want in today's NFL is a backup QB who dominates your press coverage due to non playing issues.  You want that media focus on your team and preferably your starting QB.  When you win a game and the media rushes to your backup QB it can present big problems.  I wouldn't bring this guy in as a starter or backup.  It has little to do with his stance, although I disagree with him, it has a lot to do with protecting your teams publicity and public relations.  He hasn't played in 2 years and was on the downside when he left.   Why would you want that distraction in your locker room and in your teams public relations ?  JMO
Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: AAF League

I wonder how they would work the combine, because some former NFL draftees would have already gone through it, but there are/will be players who didnt play enough college ball to go to the combine.  Will they get to go to the combine or just have to go off their AAF tape??

How will the NFL work this?  Can any NFL team sign anyone they want?  Are all these AAF guys free agents to the NFL?

Almost every player not invited to the Combine participates in a Pro Day at some location, so there is "measurable" info on almost every player.

Advantage to AAF is that they have more game tape going for them now. They can't help but be on the radar at least a little bit.

Also the NFL just started doing small regional combines a couple years ago and if a player(s) really stood out they get invited to a super regional combine(not sure if thats the exact name for it).

Both of these guys are expected to go in the mid 1st/early 2nd round



Depending on what they do in free agency, I would not hesitate to take Hockenson at #30.

Yea scouts love him and sources say Hockenson is a gem, so taking him at 12 might be their best bet. He looks like one of the top players in the draft and maybe the top offensive player. Preliminary grades for the NFL combine already list him as the top offensive player. So, in terms of drafting the best player at a position of need... it's pretty self explanatory. Fans won't like it because of the obvious need at edge rusher, but the idea is to obtain the best player. Take him at 12 or he's gone, probably goes to Atlanta. Detroit might also be the team that nabs him early. That being said, Noah Fant might be available at 30, so whichever way they go it will be a tough sacrifice to make and you might miss out on TE entirely if you pass on Hockenson, which leaves the position unaddressed and it needs to be.

I think this team has far deeper issues on defense than offense.  So we drafted three WR's last year, none of them lit up the world and in fact costs us a few games.   Those picks could've been used better somewhere else, and I still don't understand a punter in the 5th rd. , water over the dam!  I'm not at all impressed with the WR's coming out this year being touted as 1st and 2nd rd talents.  I think there are some very good WR's coming out who will be available in rds 3-6.  Dare I say, much better than the piule of heap we got last year in the draft.  I do like Kumerow who wasn't drafted.  Hope he stays healthy!!!

My choices (Boykin from Notre Dame - Big body, chain mover, deadly in the red zone 6'6" 245 lbs.  now tell me who is going to guard this monster?)  LED ND in TD's YAC, Receptions, etc.  Last guy to do that at ND is in the hall of fame and played 16 years with the Raiders!

Terry Godwin, Georgia probably the best route runner coming out.  Was injured so he might be off the radar screen a bit, so if we are lucky he will drop and maybe into our hands.  Very similar to Donald Driver.

Johnson from Buffalo is a very good route receiver and not afraid to go over the middle.  I think we had about ten passes caught over the middle by a wide receiver last year and Adams had ten of them.  This used to be one of our strengths, now it is a weakness and other teams know it.  We are being restricted by what we run on offense because of this.   

Considering both Cobb and Allison went down for most of the year MVS and Brown were great choices and paid off instantly. Even Moore helped ease the burden of injuries to the position. Defenses also kept an eye on MVS throughout year and respected his speed. It's true they didn't set the world on fire as rookies, but name another position(s) in those spots that would have been more positively impacted from last year's draft. They will need to address the slot WR, but imagine what the WR position would have looked like without those three players last year.

OK PackerJoe, here are my options:
1A: Allen is gone...so I pick White
1B: Ford isn't a Zac Martin and will be playing OG so no to him. Christian Wilkins would be my pick. A big guy that can move.
2:   Sweat over Walker (but just barely) and Tillery
3:   McGovern isn't an All-Pro right off the bat...but he will be one.
4A: Bryce Love, fast and can team with Jones so that the Packers always have a game buster on the field.
4B: Tytus Howard, maybe a OT, or maybe not but still a big man that can move.
5:   Conrad is a solid TE and the Packers need more of them.
6A: Sutton Smith a 6-0, 235# OLB that would have to move inside.
6B: Jalen Hurd a WR from Baylor that 6-4 and 220#. Baylor had him run the ball a lot so with his size and speed could stick.
7:   Bryan Cowart, a DT 6-3, 300#s from MD. Showed well at the Shrine game.

When I was a freshman in college....well lets just say I wasn't proud of my actions. So I look at these kids and realize they made mistakes. I think the key is if they realize that they made mistakes? Second, what has been their character through the 4 years while playing football?
Everyone has done stupid stuff, the question is did you continue to do stupid stuff?
