Tariq Carpenter may have been selected in the 7th round, but he could end up being the most instrumental late-round pick in recent history for the Packers organization. The safety position was arguably the most glaring weakness in the Packers’ roster outside of wide receiver going into the draft. Darnell Savage’s play is on the decline, and the Packers have not yet offered an extension to Adrian Amos. With Henry Black now on the Giants’ roster, the lack of depth/talent at safety has become even more evident. The options at safety were somewhat limited in the 2022 draft, forcing the…

The Green Bay Packers selected Georgia defensive lineman Devonte Wyatt with the 28th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. This was the Packers’ 2nd pick in the first round, and second Georgia Bulldog selected so far in the 2022 draft. With all of the top-end receiver prospects already off of the board, the Packers chose to add more help on the defensive side of the ball. Though it may not be the exciting wide receiver choice that most fans were looking for, there is a method to the madness when analyzing the Devonte Wyatt selection. https://twitter.com/packers/status/1519877699308859393?s=20&t=Yt63DANGvgdhfa6OPpG-BQ A Joe Barry…

The Packers added Georgia linebacker Quay Walker with the 22nd overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. This was their first of two selections in the first round (and the first of 2 Bulldogs selected by the Packers in the 1st round). This is the first time the Green Bay Packers have selected a linebacker in the first round since they selected A.J. Hawk fifth overall in the 2006 NFL Draft. If Walker is good enough to merit a 1st round pick from the Packers, it’s a pretty good sign. https://twitter.com/packers/status/1519866724262293508?s=20&t=Yt63DANGvgdhfa6OPpG-BQ Bolstering The LB Corps Traditionally, the Packers have not…

Darnell Savage‘s worst season to date in 2021 has left his future with the Packers uncertain. Adrian Amos is on the last year of his current contract. The Packers need help at the safety position.  The huddled online masses seem to either be blind to this fact, or very one-track-minded in regards to a solution. There may be some overlooked safety prospects that the Packers can target. My esteemed colleague @Sam_davel appears to be the only person online who believes that there are options in this draft outside of Lewis Cine. Georgia isn’t the only school that produces draft-worthy talent. There are…

Replacing a 1st Team All Pro is a tall order for just about any player. The Packers drafted Josh Myers in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft to do just that however, and early indications show that he just might be up to the task.  Corey Linsley left the Packers as a free agent after the 2020 season. In doing so, Linsley became the highest paid player in the NFL at the center position. The Packers couldn’t afford Corey, and the high price tag combined with his lengthy injury history led the team to the conclusion that it…

The Green Bay Packers’ draft philosophy has always been to “take the best player available”, much like most other NFL teams. The Packers’ hand may be forced in this draft, however, due to the extenuating circumstances that they are currently facing. Davante Adams chose to follow his dream of playing for the Raiders, and in doing so, he essentially kneecapped a franchise that was already looking to draft a receiver or two in the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft. Even if the Packers are able to acquire a top tier veteran receiver via trade or free agency, the team will still…

To say that the Packers’ offensive line faced a great deal of adversity in 2021 would be an understatement. David Bakhtiari, who is widely considered the best left tackle in football, missed the entire season while recovering from an ACL tear. The Packers also lost versatile star offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins early in the season due to injury. This injury bug bit promising second round rookie center Josh Meyers as well, causing him to miss a good chunk of the season. Overcoming losses like these would be a difficult task for any NFL team. Yet, the Packers still managed to…

Amari Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers

“If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.” I wish I could follow these instructions, but unfortunately, someone has to talk about Amari Rodgers. Amari has gotten off to a rough start in his career in the NFL. This doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s time to cut and run. though. Plenty of great players have had less than ideal starts to their careers. The next couple seasons will be instrumental in discovering what Amari Rodgers’ true potential is, so don’t give up hope just yet. Building Rapport Aaron Rodgers is notoriously tough on young…

It seems that the Packers are going to go all-in again and try to win another championship with Aaron Rodgers. Both head coach Matt LaFleur and GM Brian Gutekunst have gone on the record to say that they want Rodgers as their QB going forward. The recent hiring of Tom Clements is reinforcement of this stance. Brian Gutekunst remains confident that Russ Ball can keep the core of the team intact. If that is possible, it is doubtful that the Packers can add much to the team via free agency. The Packers fell short in the playoffs once again. This…

Charles Woodson recently came under fire for saying that the Packers should trade Aaron Rodgers. The comment came during a Good Morning Football interview on Tuesday in which Woodson was asked what he thought the future held for his former teammate. Woodson faced backlash after his comments from a large, die-hard group of Rodgers fans who like to deal in absolutes. The problem with dealing in absolutes is that the world consists of shades of grey. Despite what this group of fans may say, it is possible for a person to be a fan of both Aaron Rodgers and the…
