2015 Updates for Thornton, Bradford and Goodson
« on: August 04, 2015, 02:37:21 PM »
2014 draft picks Thornton, Bradford and Goodson all got redshirt years in 2014 with expectations they'd breakout in 2015. So far, not so good. At this point, I'm not sure if any of them make the final 53 man roster.

Thornton has gotten himself in great shape, but still not making plays: http://packersnotes.com/2015/08/thornton-still-too-quiet/

Bradford looks to be behind Palmer and Ryan and maybe Thomas> He hasn't flashed yet, Palmer is getting the better reps: http://www.jsonline.com/sports/packers/nate-palmer-carl-bradford-shifting-to-the-inside-b99548123z1-320398202.html

It doesn't appear Goodson has improved at all: http://www.jsonline.com/sports/packers/training-camp-report-monday-at-a-glance-b99549478z1-320557692.html


They still have time to step up. I've been a proponent for all three of them, but if I had to make a 53 man roster today, I wouldn't put any of them on it.

Rant away!!!

Thornton was 'injured' in the last week of preseason which saved him from being cut last year. This year he may sneak on the roster for 1 or 3 weeks because of suspension but then he's down the road.

Bradford and Goodson had no business making the final 53 last year and only did so because they were draft picks. I see them down the road this year given that Palmer is ahead of Bradford on the depth chart and that doesn't look like it is changing and Ryan will make the team. Thomas probably beat him out also if they keep 5 inside linebackers.

Goodson was terrible last year, just terrible and we should have kept Rolle. This year the 3 rookies probably beat him out and he's gone too.

I know you hate it when posters ask you to backup what you say, so it might be best you don't post flawed opinion as fact... Just sayin'.

So, with all due respect... Link?
