Bryce Love is intriguing to me.  Great talent but he's always hurt,  and played with a great OL.  Im not a huge fan of Stanford RBs, but he would be interesting to see in Green Bay.

 Would love to see Parris Campbell in the Green and Gold, Ivey will probably be a good player too.

A serious question: what about Cole Madison? There is zero indication of what his personal problem is, but hopefully its behind him next year.

Madison

Not going to speculate on the nature of his situation, but the Packers seem to be fine with it, so I'd assume it's fairly serious. If he finally makes his debut for the team, I just see that as an added plus-- and more competition at RG. In all honesty, I think he possesses the feet of an NFL tackle-- but job one is actually showing up, so we'll see what happens. I'm fine with McCray, Patrick or bringing back Bell if Madison were to retire prematurely. Not the end of the world.

 Great group of players Noble. Think we will see a DL earlier, but that's a super draft.

With Kendrick and Lewis as free agents and Graham clearly in decline I see TE as a priority.  But I don't think I have seen any mock with a tight end taken high Day 1 or 2.

Could someone please explain this to me?

Thanks

 Most years there are only a few TE's taken in the 1st few rounds at a low success rate. It's still early in the evaluation process, maybe some prospects will rise. As far as Graham, he's put up solid numbers pretty much every year of his career everywhere he has played. Just makes me wonder if they are using him right, not seeing chemistry with him and Rodgers. It took Cook half a year to become decent in this system, maybe it's taking Graham longer, not sure.

 You have Rodgers playing all year and give the offense the TE they say they always want, not making the playoffs and not being productive with that raises some big questions.

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)
