Team is in rough shape. Could be another top 15 if we dont do something different moving forward. I haven't gotten into scouting yet, but I know people here are very big into the draft. Who ya got in the mid and late round we should target?

Mid round targets : Deionte Thompson, Safety Alabama - A.J. Brown, WR Ole Miss - Montez Sweat, EDGE Miss. State - Raekwon Davis, NT Alabama - Josh Allen, OLB Kentucky (fringe) - Rashan Gary, DE Michigan (fringe)

Late round targets : Cody Ford, Guard Oklahoma - Parris Campbell, WR Ohio State - Chase Winovich, EDGE Michigan (reach)

Options will be limited with the Saints' pick and in the mid round they should have some very nice options available to them, some of which I didn't list. Fringe means where Green Bay is likely to pick those players might not be available.

Overall, I see Green Bay in good position to improve their roster in next year's draft. The young WRs have each flashed talent and look poised for strong development in their 2nd and 3rd years. CB has the depth every secondary needs and Alexander is hell on wheels. They need to focus on the defensive front seven, mainly DE and OLB, and the offense I believe could really use a player like A.J. Brown or Parris Campbell, regardless of the returning young WRs.

My ideal picks would be Josh Allen and Parris Campbell. Among those I've listed my favorites are Raekwon Davis, Josh Allen, Parris Campbell, and Deionte Thompson.

I think we can all agree their best case scenario at this point is .500 +/- 1 game, so the mid round is likely their target range.

With the season on the brink, the coaching staff needs to do everything in its power to maximize on-field performance. In addition to re-emphasizing proper pad level, there are a few obvious moves they should make for the stretch run.

Bench RG Byron Bell

Justin McCray won the starting RG job in training camp. And though he struggled a bit early, he eventually settled in and was playing fairly well until a shoulder injury sidelined him for several weeks. In his absence, backup OT Byron Bell was inserted into the lineup. He's had a few solid performances in his seven starts, but he's consistently been the weakest link on the OL. Calling his body of work as a starter "average" would be generous. His lack of athleticism routinely turns up in pass protection and in the running game. He's an OT playing out of position and it shows. McCray has apparently recovered from his injury and has been ready for game action for several weeks now. It's hard to imagine him playing any worse then Bell and pretty easy to imagine him playing better. Injury shouldn't rob a player of a starting position that he's rightfully earned, particularly when his replacement has been so thoroughly mediocre. It's time for McCray to return to the starting lineup.

Activate WR Jake Kumerow.

Kumerow was one of the best receivers in camp, both on the practice field and in games. He clearly outplayed every receiver with the exception of Adams and Allison. He demonstrated far more polish as a route runner and more playmaking ability than any of the rookies. It wasn't even close. If not for his injury, he was set as the #4WR and would've received significant playing time. With the injuries to Cobb and Allison, two rookies, MVS and ESB, have become nearly full-time players. And while MVS has made a positive impact, he remains raw in nearly every respect and is only effective on a limited subset of routes. ESB has done next to nothing and his overall impact has probably been negative. He's often out of position, is imprecise and it seems that Rodgers doesn't entirely trust him. The inconsistency of these two rookies, particularly ESB, is a key factor in the ongoing struggles of the passing game. Often times it seems that Rodgers is reduced to looking for Adams, and if he's covered, bolting the pocket and trying to create on his own. With Graham likely to miss time, GB desperately needs a spark in the passing game. Kumerow has been eligible to return, but inexplicably remains on the shelf, while ESB, who he clearly outplayed, is set for extensive playing time down the stretch. That's a mistake they should rectify immediately.

Graham may have gotten of to a slow start, and maybe we (fans) had unrealistic expectations of him when he signed. But the facts are that, prior to being injured this week, he was on pace for more receptions and more yards than any other Packer TE ever.

While he's not the same "Jimmy" that he was years ago in New Orleans, he's still a viable receiving target.............when used properly (and that's part of the rub).

I see Graham back next year, and one of either Kendricks or Lewis, along with Tonyan and they draft a mid-round TE to develop (Tommy Sweeney/BC or Mitchell Wilcox/USF)

Yes on Riley...  thumbsup)

For McDaniel, I was confusing him with Haley- they both has some considerable baggage... But, I do like McDaniel's offense.

Not in favor of McDaniels.

He had a major flame-out in DEN as HC, and then last years Deal/No Deal with INDY shows he's not trustworthy/stable.

They don't know exactly how many weeks as of yet. But when they do know, and if it's 4 or more weeks, I say shut him down and IR him. No sense in risking any further injury. Especially if the season is essentially over by the time he could come back.

They've got Looney and Simon on the PS. Might make sense to bring one up if Daniels is a long term no-go.
Green Bay Packers News Talk / Daniels out for weeks

The #Packers lost two starters in their brutal loss to the #Seahawks on Thursday. Along with TE Jimmy Graham (broken thumb), source said DE Mike Daniels is out a few weeks with a foot injury. He saw Dr. Robert Anderson and will get a timeline when he returns from the weekend off.

This is from Rappaport.

Adams hasn't shown anything so far but now is his chance.

Seems like Riley is the new college hot prospect, similar to Spurrier and Kelly. Too often, the jump from one level of competition to another is too difficult. The college coaches don't get to schedule "creampuffs" any more. And they're facing the best of the best every week. So schemes that were successful in college against players, only a handful would end up being drafted by the NFL, don't work against players who have been in the league for a few years. The Packers have to get the right guy, and I'd like someone with some NFL experience, rather than a college coach who would be learning on the job. Rodgers has a few years of excellence left, and needs someone to help him regain his MVP form. This would be more likely with familiarity with the expectatons of an NFL coach. JMO

 The Steelers brought in Haley as OC years back. He butted heads with Big Ben, but that offense developed into the killer b's.
 Fischer looks to be loved by his players and has an eye for drafting defensive talent.

 Any OC of the top offenses in the leage would deserve a look.

 Never know though, maybe we all get Rodgers'd and we win the superbowl ::)
