They may try to use him like they did Jermichael Finley. Put him at TE to replace Graham.

That's the whole point of this process. Improving as many positions as possible if it makes financial sense.


IF the money is as its being reported, then the deal certainly looks better. At a higher price tag, it wouldn't look so hot.

The TE situation will be interesting to see how it plays out. Looney is another experiment to watch too.

Or, does Gute throw a curve and pick one of the TE prospects in round 2 or 3? That would surprise a little at this point.

I think he might draft a TE if one of the better ones are still out there. We were at our best when we gave Rodgers all the options. Our WR/TE positions have been greatly depleted over the past few years. I wouldn't be surprised if he goes WR round one if there is a good one that falls.

Reagor and Higgins seem to be dropping in the mocks - For what that's worth....

If the list is only those three, I still like Reagor for his speed. Otherwise, Jefferson

Actually, I might prefer Mims or Aiyuk to the three that were listed.

I have seen to mocks over last month that had higgins at 30 and 1 mock that had higgins at 30 and Aiyuk to the packers in the 2nd with a trade up to 50 wow that would be a A+ in my book

Not scared off by Higgins testing at all? It was brutal.

That it was which is why he is dropping but all the football know it alls say he plays much faster than his workout times and 4 of the 6 guys rated him best wr in class in terms of hands getting open etc im not scared they said hes a very talented wr who will make lots of teams regret passing him by

They took Sternberger in the 3rd last year. I don't see them using another relatively high pick on a TE.

I don’t see how Tee gives us anything different than what we largely already have. Not saying he may not be better, but we need a dynamic, YAC WR desperately on this roster. If Tee slides to the second then sure.

Love this move. Nice to have a reliable returner and I'd find a way to use him a little on O too.

Agreed. I loved the spots LaFleur put him in towards the end of the year with jet sweets and reverses etc.

I like this move too. Still, it would be good to bring another returner onto the roster, probably via the draft. As we saw last year, it was pretty weak without Ervin.

What's the number you think Aaron Jones gets in FA next year? What's the cutoff? I don't think the pack should spend over 7-8 mil for a RB (and that is kind of high). They may go RB semi-early this year just in case Jones is priced out of their budget.

They have tough choices to make going into next year.
