Draft Talk / Re: Options
« Last post by OneTwoSixFive on Today at 02:50:10 AM »
First off, lets look at the Packers most glaring needs:

A starting free safety
shoring up the offensive line
outside pass rush
inside pass rush
------------------------------------

Now lets take a look at the draft:

Safety
Deionte Thompson
Lukas Denis
Johnathan Abram

I would pass up L.Denis and J.Abram (and Jaquan Johnson, if you rate him) for other guys that are more FS than SS. They would include Nasir Adderley, Juan Thornhill and Chauncey Gardner-Johnson. They all seem to fit in the late 2nd early third round area, though Thornhill's draft position has wide variance.

Hybrid DE / OLB
Clelin Ferrell
Rashan Gary
Zach Allen
Jaylon Ferguson
Chase Winovich

I'd add Charles Omenihu (Texas) to this group. Looks like a third round pick. https://draftwire.usatoday.com/2018/11/29/2019-nfl-draft-prospects-collegefootball-texas-charles-omenihu-scouting-report-interview/2/

Offensive Tackles

Jonah Williams
Greg Little
Jawaan Taylor
Dalton Risner
David Edwards
Andre Dillard
Yodny Cajuste
Kaleb McGary

Offensive Guards

Cody Ford
Michael Deiter
Chris Lindstrom

Risner, Cajuste and Ford all should be adept at playing both RG and RT, which would make them very attractive to the Packers who want RG help now and a starting RT after the end of the 2019 season when Bulaga's contract expires.

Answering the question as to where the value lies, it's all guesswork until the draft has happened, but you can make some assumptions on the grouping of talent. Round one (#12) could see an edge rusher like Polite, M.Sweat or, if lucky, Ferrell. The later round one pick looks good value for taking a versatile OT/OG like Cajuste or Ford. At free safety, later in round 2, to early in round three looks to be the sweet spot, with a choice of at least three.

Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: O line
« Last post by OneTwoSixFive on Today at 02:21:27 AM »
I am agreeing with RT about the quality of the o line as a unit. It is a very good unit, but with some concerns.
The excellent: David Bakhtiari
The very good: Corey Linsley
The good: Bryan Bulaga
The good enough: Lane Taylor
The bad: Byron Bell

What the O line needs. One starting RG, and one replacement for Bulaga after 2019. These can be fixed (for 2019) with just one pick. A guy like Cody Ford (draft, round 2) could fill in at RG and move to RT in 2020. Then the Packers would still need a RG in 2020, but the need is pushed a year into the future. Dalton Risner is another in this draft who could do the RG/RT thing. A lesser (and cheaper) version of Ford would be G Connor McGovern, but he doesn't have eventual RT capability.

A great scenario would be Clowney, if he hit the open market(doubt it). Or Suggs for a year or two, but he has the same love surrounding him in Baltimore as Ray Lewis did. One of them would be great, then if White fell to us at 12, and with the second pick we score Fant, or the TE from Bama, or Ximines (sp). That's a good start to the offseason.

Okay, really bored so I let Fanspeak pick the draft.  Gotta say, I'd be pretty okay with this draft.  It was tempting to drift a little bit and pick players that I liked more, but very happy with the first two picks

Found this when googling Cole Madison. Add salt as needed, but this this the first time I've heard what his off field issues were:

Still disagree with your FA choices, but definitely like the positions drafted, and the trades for extra picks. A nice balance of offense/defense, all in areas of need. The players themselves? Its always a crap shoot, but if the Packers hit on a couple starters and a couple solid backups, that would be a very good draft.

I think that the decision was correct on Jordy, although it was tough to see.  Will be a bit difficult to see Cobb leave too but I support it.  Somehow, that relationship needs to be built with the new guys.  That being said, if the new offense has a strict design/scheme and thereby creates separation then less experienced players should still be able to produce.  Just put the ball on the money.

"The Packers will also interview Redskins linebackers coach Kirk Olivadotti for the same role, tweets Grant Paulsen of NBC Sports Washington. Olivadotti, 45, has essentially been a Redskins lifer: he joined the club in 2000 as a defensive quality control coach, and has worked for the team in various roles ever since, save for a 2011-13 stint at the University of Georgia. He’s familiar with LaFleur, as the two worked together in the nation’s capital in 2010 while LaFleur was Washington’s quarterbacks coach."
