I think they could still use pass rush help and if they can find someone who provides that, regardless of the position, they'll go for it. But there are still some tight ends, receivers and inside linebackers out there.
I think it's possible, but I would guess they'll add a few in undrafted free agency, too. They may still think about bringing in a veteran at some point.
They don't have a third-down back per se, maybe someone with return ability. They could be searching for that.
In the Packers system, you've got to be able to move and I don't think he can do that. He's also 25, which is one reason he might be sliding. But I think more and more teams want athletes upfront. The Packers tend to draft tackles and turn them into guards.
He can do it, but he's not a speed guy who can really press a linebacker in man coverage. They typically don't like the Darren Sproles type guy because most of them can't block, but they could use some speed back there.
A lot of it depends on how Fackrell and Biegel play. They need someone to hold the edge on the side opposite Perry on early downs. If Biegel or Fackrell can do that, maybe they'll feel comfortable playing Matthews on the inside. It's one reason I was surprised they let Datone Jones go. He was versatile to play outside and then rush from the inside.
McNichol just went off the board.
We're starting to have a run on OL, too.
Well, he was caught underage drinking and admitted having six with a co-ed. On most campuses that doesn't get you suspended. At BYU, it does.
I know the Packers brought in some interesting prospects, a couple of whom have already been drafted. But generally, the draft has a limited number of quality players. It's just stronger at some positions than others. This draft is normal that way.
I don't know. He wasn't on the list of tight ends that I looked at.
They took Tretter, a tackle, and made him a center. They've gotten some center work out of Don Barclay, another tackle. So they can get center work out of a guard.
Montgomery is actually a little bit bigger. And he's cut like a Greek god. He has moves that Williams only dreams about. But Williams has played running back most of his life. Montgomery hasn't.
A couple of OLB pass rusher types to keep an eye on late are Keion Adams of Western Michigan, Johnathan Calvin of Mississippi State and Eric Wilson of Cincinnati.
He's short. His testing numbers are good, but he didn't play at all in '16. Interesting prospect who probably will go undrafted.
Don't know a thing about him.
