Kahale Warring was still available. More upside than Sternberger but more of a project. Sternberger should be able to contribute right away.

Sternberger has to make people happy.   He was only 1 of 4 TE's I had rated in the top 3 rnds.


--on a side note - RB Montgomery was a big, big favorite of mine.   Now I hate him as much as I hate Hockenson...

Well the Packers got 4 exciting players added to the roster. Now they will wait until pick 150 to start 4 more picks to try and add some backend depth for the roster. A nice set of 4.

Is this 4 or 5 TEs on the roster now?

On a side note I believe that Sternberger is the first packers pick they had in for an official 30 visit.

I am kind of surprised not to see a move back to recoup a 4th round pick.  But, Sternberger seems to be the first guy that most are shaking their head yes at.  Jenkins was not mentioned a lot or connected to the Packers.  Reviews though sound like he may be a solid interior guy.

RT - what should we look for tomorrow??  Give us some names - trades.

Sternberger was a 5'9 HS QB, a shoulder injury robbed him of arm strength.  He grew 6 inches between his soph and junior year.  Very good 3 sport athlete in HS.

A willing blocker he just isnt very good at it.  Will need to get stronger.  He's got some good receiving tools and potential.

I will get a list of names to watch for you in the morning on the Packers types thread, but calling it a night for now.

I totally had OL on my wish list, so excited to get Jenkins. 

Admit surprised at a center-first guy.  I had anticipate doing what TT always did, and going after a college OT.  (Yes, I know, Gute isn't TT.)  I figured an OT made best sense because Bulaga is expiring, and usually a really good college OT can transition to guard if needed.  So a good OT/OG selection would really provide a lot of injury insurance for this year, and could fit into a lot of starting spots next year depending on who they might want to replace.

O well, hopefully Bulaga and Bakhti will never get injured again and will be terrific starting tackles for years to come.

Turner very well may be the RT after the Bulaga contract expires.

Yes, that's definitely one of the possibilities.  But I think it's at least as likely that Turner will prove to be variably deficient and not good enough to be the RT solution.  Who knows.  He may or may not b good enough to hold down the RG position. 

Uncertainty, as usual.  His contract is modest enough, he gets the shot, and if he earns it he can keep a starting spot, whether at guard or perhaps be considered to succeed Bulaga.  But his contract isn't that big, and his cap his won't be that large.  Probably at least as likely that he won't pan out as a long-term starter as that he will. 

But, part of the Gute plan is to create more flexibility and possibilities.  So, we'll have to see.  I'd just expected the OL pick to be in that Bulaga-replacement-possibility pool.  But dont' think Jenkins probably will be.
