News now! Thompson explains draft philosophy

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on April 22, 2015 – 10:12 am

Packers GM Ted Thompson

GREEN BAY–Packers General Manager Ted Thompson explained his philosophy of drafting, when asked on Wednesday how need fits into his selection process.

“You factor everything in. Other organizations weight things differently than we do. I’m adamant (need is) not the way to draft. The way to draft is to take the best player,” Thompson said at a pre-draft press conference.

“You don’t know what you’re going to need. This is real life. Injuries happen. Life happens. What you think you’re strong at, you may not necessarily be strong at. As long as you’re taking good, solid players, you’re getting value there. If you take players that aren’t as good, you may not be getting value.”

Thompson has long been known to select the best available player, as opposed to drafting specifically for need.

“It is a process. It’s something that takes a long time. We’ll officially start on next year’s draft the day after this one,” he said.

What’s left to do before next week’s NFL draft begins on Thursday, April 30.

“We’ve kind of got this down, Most of the grind is over with. There are relationships with other teams, there are relationships with agents, those kinds of things, finishing up reports, going back to the board again and again,” Thompson said.

Packers get two sixth-round picks

Posted by Ryan Hartwig on March 23, 2015 – 8:19 pm

blog-header-imageThe Packers have received two sixth-round compensatory picks in this year’s draft. The picks are Nos. 210 and 212 overall.

The announcement was made Monday at the NFL annual meeting in Phoenix, Arizona.

Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks. The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four.

Green Bay now has nine total picks in the 2015 NFL Draft, which will be held April 30-May 2.

Packers cap draft with Jeff Janis, third wide receiver

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on May 10, 2014 – 5:26 pm

140510-janis-300GREEN BAY–The Packers capped their 2014 draft with another wide receiver, Jeff Janis of Sagnaw Valley State. Janis, 6-3, 219, is a big-body pass catcher and the last of three wide receivers selected by the Packers in this draft,

Janis turned a 4.42 40 at the combine and was projected by most draftniks to be drafted earlier than the final round. The lower level of competition in which Janis played, combined with the wealth of wide receiver talent in this draft, likely dropped Janis’ stock.

He caught 189 passes for more than 3,000 yards and including 31 touchdowns the past two seasons.

“Physical specimen. Looks the part. Can dominate but needs to improve his consistency,” packers.com draft analyst Tony Pauline said of Janis.

Baylor cornerback Packers’ sixth-round pick

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on May 10, 2014 – 3:45 pm

140510-goodson-demetri-300GREEN BAY–Baylor cornerback Demetri Goodson is the Packers’ sixth-round draft choice.

Goodson, 5-11, 194, twice suffered season-ending injuries. The most recent was in 2012.

He made 43 tackles (38 solo), 19 passes defensed and four interceptions in 19 career games played. He’s a former basketball player that transferred to Baylor from Gonzaga.

Goodson ran a 4.52 40 at the combine in Feb.

“Tough, athletic corner with nice size and speed and good mechanics. Fluid, quick and rangy. Special teams type,” packers.com draft analyst Tony Pauline said.

His older brother, Mike, has played running back with the Panthers, Raiders and Jets.

Packers please fans with selection of Jared Abbrederis

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on May 10, 2014 – 2:51 pm

140510-abbrederis-jared-300GREEN BAY–The Packers’ second of two fifth-round picks will meet with a lot of fan popularity. Wisconsin wide receiver Jared Abbrederis was selected with the 176th overall pick, the final pick of the draft’s fifth round and the Packers’ second selection of a wide receiver in this draft. Abbrederis, 6-1, 195, is a favorite of Badgers fans.

He won the 2013 Burlsworth Trophy as the nation’s top player who began his career as a walk-on, and finished his career tied for the school record for receptions (202) and ranked No. 2 all-time at Wisconsin in receiving yards (3,140) and touchdown receptions (23). In 2013, Abbrederis had 78 catches, 1,081 yards and seven TDs. He was first-team All-Big 10 the last two years and had nine 100-yard games in his career, including one 200-yard game vs. Ohio State (Bradley Roby) last season. Abbrederis ran 4.50 at the combine this past February and would seem to fit best as a slot receiver.

“Smart, efficient and tough. Reads the defense, finds the seam and catches the ball. Destroyed Bradley Roby this season,” packers.com draft analyst Tony Pauline said of Abbrederis.

Packers draft center from Ohio State in fifth round

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on May 10, 2014 – 2:09 pm

140510-linsley-corey-300GREEN BAY–Ohio State’s Corey Linsley addresses what some would say is a dire need for a center. The Packers selected Linsley, 6-2, 296, with their first of two picks in the fifth round, the 161st pick overall.

Linsley started all 26 games at center the last two years, after having been a reserve guard and tackle. He was a first team All-Big 10 selection and team captain.

The Packers lost starting center Evan Dietrich-Smith in free agency. JC Tretter, a fourth-round pick last year, is a likely challenger to replace Dietrich-Smith.

“Solid, workmanlike, tough and intelligent, but not really big or overly athletic,” packers.com draft analyst Tony Pauline said of Linsley.

Packers pick linebacker with their first pick of third day

140510-bradford-300GREEN BAY–The Packers addressed need at linebacker with their first pick of the third day of the draft. Arizona State linebacker Carl Bradford, 6-1, 250, joined the Packers on the 121st pick of the draft.

Bradford is a strong value pick. He was listed by several draftnik publications to be a second or third-round prospect. He recorded 21 1/2 sacks in his college career and was first team All-PAC 12 last year.

“Plays like his hair is on fire. Very good making plays up the field. Solid pass rusher,” packers.com draft analyst Tony Pauline said of Bradford.

Packers invest in Cal tight end Richard Rodgers

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on May 9, 2014 – 10:16 pm

140509-rodgers-blog-300GREEN BAY–Richard Rodgers is a tight end loaded with upside, and he’ll have a chance to develop his talents in an offense famous for developing tight ends.

Rodgers, 6-4, 257, made a position switch from tight end to wide receiver while at California. He made the move seamlessly enough to vault into the third round of the NFL draft, but as a tight end. Rodgers was selected by the Packers on Thursday night with the 98th overall pick, the Packers’ second of two third-round picks and the team’s final pick of the second day of the draft.

“His father is the special teams coach of the Carolina Panthers. Played wide receiver at 245 pounds last season. Was a 270-pound blocking tight end the year before. Shows flashes but he’s green as grass. Has skill but needs time,” packers.com draft analyst Tony Pauline said of Rodgers.

Packers.com has provided a full report on the third round.

Khyri Thornton added to talent on defensive line

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on May 9, 2014 – 9:35 pm

140509-thornton-khyri-600

GREEN BAY–The Packers addressed an ongoing need for defensive linemen by selecting Khyri Thornton of Southern Mississippi with their first of two third-round draft choices on Thursday. Thornton, 6-3, 304, was selected with the 85th overall pick.

Thornton is a defensive tackle that will likely play defensive end in the Packers’ 3-4 defensive scheme.

“Classic three-technique tackle. Quick, explosive. Probably a two-gap end,” packers.com draft analyst Tony Pauline said of Thornton.

Thornton has been described as one of the most underrated players in the draft.

Packers.com has provided a full report on the third round.
