Panthers release left tackle Matt Kalil after two years.  Worth a one year deal to prove he is healthy?

Bring him back on a one day contract so, like Kuhn, he can retire a Packer. Induction into the Packers HOF ASAP for Nelson.
A Packer legend who somehow seemed underrated.  He was a great football player, Very few could work a sideline like he could.

A friend told me that Simmons (if he's still there) at 30 might be the pick. That's why I said TE in the 2nd round.

That's my favourite pick at #30. It assumes he is there of course and even then there might be another really good player who drops far enough to either get at #30 or move up for, one that trumps Simmons due to availability this year.

ramrod, have the Packers FA signings been "splashy" enough for you? Because they made some big moves very early, very out of character for the team. And definitely, if the Packers want Hockenson, they'll have to go for it with #12. Which may have been the thinking behind the FA's. And, just curious, who do you see the Packers trading their #30 and third to move up in the draft?

After doing a gazillion mock drafts using a ton of different peoples big boards, who is the best guy most often available at #30 ? Much of the time it is Hockenson, even when he is rated higher than that. TE just isn't often top of a teams need list, it gets trumped by OT, Edge, CB and other positions, so even if he is (for example) the 20th best player, he is always slipping in mock drafts. Now just because this happens in mocks, it doesn't necessarily happen in the real draft, but the amount of times he comes up as available at #30 does give me pause for thought. He just might be there then (and if Fant were there instead, that would be fine too).

What is funny is how cocky some Packers fans are that HHCD is a bum and Amos is the man, but it will not surprise me if HHCD ends up with the better season.

Thats a pretty good defense he's joining.  I'll be curious to see how much Fangio meant to them.

I like Hockenson too, but Id be curious to know how many TEs have been drafted in the top 15.  I know its happened, but its pretty rare (Kyle Brady?, Ebron?)  Stranger things have happened but Id be very surprised if Gute went TE at #12.

Hopefully this article will help answer your question. Remember, Shannon Sharpe was drafted in the 7th round by Cenver. Worked out pretty well. Does this mean a pass on Hockenson or Fant? Rob Gronkowski was drafted by NE in the 2nd.

Ron Wolf drafted Bubba Franks 14th overall in 2000, not one of his better draft moments. A TE that ran a 4.9/ 40, he might not even get drafted in todays NFL.

Interesting. So, the Packers sign a Bears safety, and the Bears sign a (for all practical purposes) a Packers safety. And last year the Packers effectively fashioned a contract for a Bears CB.
