We will all find out in a few days, but Teds track record has shown he is not going to jump into FA with the checkbook open.

He will probably wait and let other teams throw their money at all the 1st tier fa's then see what is left.

I think it's been proven that a team cannot buy a championship.

Like it or not, Ted seems to be more loyal to his draft picks and UDFA's he has signed than other GM's.

He is going to give them every chance in the world to develope and become part of The Team.

Never know, this could be the year, Ted goes crazy and brings in a top FA, but odds are he won't.

With Pickett's career probably coming to an end soon, I agree that Ted will look for at least 1 DE, probably a DT also.

Supposably there is a lot of D-line talent to be drafted this year, let's just see what happens.



Pickett and Raji should rotate at NT only. Neither should be a DE in this defense, which means we need more quality at DE. I think Jolly is going to be given a chance, which means we have room for two more. Guys like Canty and Jenkins are probably at the top of the list. I'd say Daniels and CJ Wilson will be competing for jobs and we will probably add at least two more in the draft. I really wish we would play more 3 down lineman vs that 2 man crap, but I guess when you are d-line deficient you have no choice but to put your dbs into the lineup.

I wouldn't expect to hear from the Packers for a couple weeks at the earliest. After the first tier overpaid/overpriced talent is off the table.

Ted will NOT make any draft day trades or sign any BIG NAME FA’s.

Currently I see 50 of the 53 spots taken, now there will be injuries during TC that will change that #, if Worthy and Sherrod are not ready that’s 2 more spots, if Finley and Woody do not come to some kind of agreement that’s 2 more.

So there could be as few as 3 and as many as 7 spots for Draft Picks, UDFA’s and FA signings to compete over at the beginning of TC.

Packers have 7 draft picks, I am not going to try and guess when and who but just going to take a shot at positions,


Ted will draft:

1RB, 1FB, 1 C, 2 DT’s, 1 WR and 1 S

The most important thing to happen(IMHO) is to set the O-line early in TC and keep those 5 guys together playing as 1 unit as much as possible.

O-line starters from L-R
Newhouse, Lang, Dietrich Smith, Sitton, Bulaga




SP TM(3)..Crosby, Goode, Masthay……………………………........................….3
QB(2)…Rodgers, Harrell,…..Coleman(1 PS)
RB(3)…Green, Harris, Saine
FB(1)….Kuhn
WR(5)…Nelson, Jones, Cobb, Boykin, Ross
TE(5)….Finley, Crabtree, Quarless, Taylor, Williams
OT(4)…Bulaga, Barclay, Newhouse, Sherrod
OG(3)…Sitton, Lang, Van Roten
C(1)…Dietrich-Smith…………………………………………..............................…24

DT(2)…Pickett, Raji
DE(4)…Daniels, Neal, Wilson, Worthy
LB(8)…Hawk, Mathews, Bishop, Moses, Perry, Smith, Jones, Manning
S(3)…Jennings, McMillian, Richardson
CB((5)...Williams, Shields, House, Hayward, Bush
DB(1)…Woodson……………………………………………....................................…….23

On The Bubble, fighting for job with draft picks or will not be back
Robert Francois, James Lattimore, Eric Walden(gone), Frank Zombo, James Starks, Cederick Benson.

Fighting for spot on PS with draft picks and UDFA’s
B.J. Coleman(only because Harrell is not eligible), C Garth Gerhart, OG Joe Gibbs
OT Andrew Datko, OT Kevin Hughes, TE Brandon Bostick, LB Micah Johnson, S Chaz Powell, DT Jordan Miller, CB James Nixon


Have fun tearing it up boys, but no matter what most think, when healthy this team is pretty solid across the board.



Eric Walden gone, probably means Lattimore is going to stay.

Well no Steven Jackson, wonder if Ted will sign someone like Beanie Wells or Micheal Turner(hope not on either), I'm guessing he will draft a RB at some point and let the guys already on the roster fight it out.

I don't see the Packers signing a RB that they didn't have on the roster last year, other than a draft selection, or undrafted rookie. There's no point in trying to.

Starks needs to stay low, run behind his pads more. Maybe that will keep him healthy.

Green will have a year separating himself from the knee surgery, so maybe he'll get some burst back. I think he was learning how to get what he could from Benson last year. I thought he was hitting the hole better, not always hesitating, trying to go for the home run. Still he's an ideal third down type of guy. Not necessarily "the man."

DuJuan needs to keep doing what he's doing. Don't let up, don't lose the fire.

Brandon Saine is the wild card. I really like this dude's skill set. Mike had high praise for him two years ago. Hope he comes back strong.

As for Kuhn, stick a fork in him.

When Saine went down last year I pretty much thought that would be it for him.

UDFA's only get so many chances.

Then I head Mike say on his tv show that he really didn't get to Talk with Brandon much, the reason, because Saine did everything right and he did not have to worry about him.

Still hoping he comes back healthy and ready!!!!

Mike said he was the most reliable of the RBs in 2011, which was his rookie year, and he was picking up blitzers on 3rd down.

nerdman, I actually agree with you on all counts over here. You should stick to football hahahaha. In addition to what you say, I'd like to see Ryan Grant kept as a backup RB and occasional FB - with Kuhn gone.

I don't see any harm in bringing Grant back for another shot at the roster.
