Driver keeps stride with Waltz

Posted by packers.com on April 30, 2012 – 8:33 pm

WR Donald Driver and his dancing partner Peta Murgatroyd scored 27 points out of 30 for the fourth consecutive week on “Dancing with the Stars.”

Likely unsurprising to Packers fans, Donald easily kept rhythm with his swift and agile footwork during the Viennese Waltz and received a post-dance standing ovation from the full audience in the ABC ballroom.

Costumed like true royalty, the pair received praise from the judges and modest critique along with 9 points from each.

Len Goodman who has judged Driver both hot and cold in previous weeks told the couple they did a great job and that their dance was well done.

“I thought it was terrific,” said Judge Len Goodman.

This 7th week of competition provided Driver with the probable security that he will see Week 8. But will it be enough for this royal duo?

Eliminations continue on “Dancing with the Stars.” Viewers are encouraged to vote via phone and text message for Donald only on the night he performs; online voting ends at 10 a.m. CT the following day. Log on to abc.com to vote.

McCarthy comments on Clifton, Collins

Posted by Mike Spofford on April 28, 2012 – 6:58 pm

Just as GM Ted Thompson did on Friday, Head Coach Mike McCarthy addressed the release this past week of veterans Chad Clifton and Nick Collins when asked by the media. Here is a transcript of McCarthy’s remarks:

“I tell you, it’s something I will never get used to. That was a hard week, starting with Chad on Monday, and Nick, both obviously medical situations that led to that decision.

“The obvious is how good a player that Chad has been throughout his career, and I look at Nick Collins, I think Nick and Chad will both without a doubt be in the Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame. But Nick Collins, if you look at the beginning of his resume, he had a heck of a chance to go to Canton, just the way he was starting in the first half of his career.

“But that really was not the tough part at all, because it wasn’t a professional decision. It was clearly a personal decision, specifically with Nick Collins. Just based on the information as an organization, Ted Thompson and I sat down, and the final question that’s asked is, ‘If Nick was your son, would you let him play?’ And that’s why we made the decision we did.

“The same with Chad. Chad Clifton is going to be missed around here. You’re talking about two great guys in the locker room, wonderful human beings, excellent teammates, two men that we classify as core players. They’re a big part of the way our locker room is. We take a lot of pride in the culture and the way we go about things, and Chad Clifton and Nick Collins exemplified that to the max.”

QB caps Packers 2012 draft class

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on April 28, 2012 – 6:01 pm

The Packers capped their 2012 draft class by selecting quarterback B. J. Coleman of Tennessee-Chattanooga with the 243rd overall pick, one of two compensatory picks by the Packers in the final round.

Draftnik Mel Kiper had projected Coleman to be a fifth or sixth-round prospect. The Packers, of course, are in the market to develop a young quarterback, after having lost Matt Flynn in free agency.

Coleman originally went to Tennessee but played just three games there and transferred to Chattanooga, where he started 29 contests over three seasons. He missed five games last season with a shoulder injury but returned to start the final game of his college career. He threw 52 TD passes against 31 interceptions in his three seasons at Chattanooga.

“He’s got the arm and he’s got the size,” Kiper said. “You look at him at 6-3 and change and at 235 pounds, and you look at what he was able to do during his career at Chattanooga. I thought he ran a little hot and cold and had an accuracy issue here and there, but the long-range possibilities are evident.”

Tackle first offensive player picked by Packers

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on April 28, 2012 – 5:54 pm

It took seven rounds, but the Packers finally turned away from defense and gave new offensive coordinator Tom Clements a player for his side of the ball, Florida State offensive tackle Andrew Datko.

Datko, 6-6, 315,  was a starter in the first four games of last season before missing the rest of the season with a shoulder injury. He had been a starter at FSU since his true freshman season.

Veteran Packers tackle Chad Clifton was released by the team on Monday and last year’s first-round pick, tackle Derek Sherrod, is recovering from a late-season fractured leg.

Datko was selected with the 241st overall pick. The Packers have one pick remaining, at 243.

Packers trade up to pick N.C. State linebacker

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on April 28, 2012 – 2:21 pm

North Carolina State linebacker Terrell Manning made it six defensive players in a row and threatened to make this an all-defense draft for the Packers, as the Packers traded a sixth-round pick and two seventh-round picks to the Patriots to move up to pick 163 in the fifth round and select Manning, 6-2, 237.

Manning made 10 sacks in the last two seasons. He’s run in the 4.7′s, but speculation is the Packers view Manning as more of a prospect to play inside linebacker.

Manning recorded 10 sacks and 25 tackles for loss over the last two seasons as a starter. He’s an early entry, having redshirted in 2008 and playing three seasons for the Wolfpack. He posted numbers all over the state sheet, adding eight forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries, nine deflected passes and five INTs in his career.

He earned honorable mention All-America honors from the NFL Draft Report and second-team all-Atlantic Coast Conference recognition.

After the selection of Manning, the Packers now have just two picks remaining in this draft, both seventh-round compensatory selections, at Nos. 241 and 243 overall. Those picks cannot be traded.

Maine safety is fifth straight on defense

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on April 28, 2012 – 12:58 pm

Defense, defense.

Yeah, for a fifth consecutive pick, the Packers stayed on the defensive side of the ball, selecting Maine safety Jerron McMillian, 5-11, 203. McMillian was picked with the 133rd overall selection, the second of back to back picks by the Packers in the fourth round.

McMillian is a second team All-America. He started each of the last three years and recorded three interceptions over the last two seasons. In those last two years, he also made 16 tackles behind the line of scrimmage.

Packers stick to defense, pick Iowa DL

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on April 28, 2012 – 12:53 pm

The focus on defense continued into the third day of the draft for the Packers on Saturday, as they made Iowa defensive lineman Mike Daniels their first pick of the day, in what was to be the first of consecutive picks in the fourth round for the Packers.

At 6-0, 291, Daniels is undersized, but he made opened eyes with a strong Insight Bowl performance against Oklahoma. He had two sacks and three tackles for loss in that game.

Daniels was selected with the 132nd overall pick.

Daniels led the Hawkeyes in sacks and tackles for loss each of the last two seasons. He had 24 1/2 tackles for loss and 13 sacks combined in 2010 and 2011. He started 21 games over those two seasons, earning second-team All-Big Ten honors from multiple publications last year.

A native of New Jersey, Daniels was a running back and defensive lineman in high school.

Two RBs, two Cs already gone in fourth

Posted by Mike Spofford on April 28, 2012 – 11:42 am

If the Packers are looking for a RB and/or C at the end of the fourth round, a pair from each position have come off the board early in the fourth round.

The Dolphins took Miami RB Lamar Miller with the second pick of the fourth round, No. 97 overall, and then the Seahawks took Utah State RB Robert Turbin nine slots later, at No. 106.

As for the centers, Houston took Georgia C Ben Jones at No. 99, and then, nine picks later, Denver took Baylor C Philip Blake at No. 108.

There’s no way to know how highly the Packers had any of those players rated on their board, but the crop at those two positions just got a lot thinner.

Still more than 20 picks away from the Packers making those back-to-back compensatory choices at the end of the fourth round.
