Trust me, some of it is done through my draft guides and notes I've put together. McGinn is the guru who could tell you more about these guys. But really, when you get to this part of the draft, only the scouts know what they're talking about. It's impossible to know all these guys.
He's OK. I know he played on a really lousy OL at Miami. Maybe that hurts him. I've seen him with a fourth-round grade, so maybe he's dropped. Not sure.
Anyone in Milwaukee right now? Is it raining?
The Packers have moved back three spots to Denver and picked up an extra seventh.
So they are now picking 175th.
Ok, pick chart is updated.
Going to take a quick bathroom break. I'll be right back.
He's tall for an inside linebacker and there's concern he can't take on blockers .
Packers have drafted WR DeAngelo Yancey of Purdue.
Yancey is big. They brought him in for a visit. He's 6-1 1/2, 220 pounds, 4.53 40-yard dash, 35 1/2 vertical. Had 4 TD catches of 60 or more
Yancey was strictly a possession receiver until his senior year when he averaged 19.4 yards per catch.
He averaged 12.3 yards per catch as a sophomore, 14.6 as a junior and 19.4 as a senior.
Seven of his 10 TDs in 2016 were 31 or more yards.
I question Thompson on a lot of things, but one position he really knows is WRs.
That said, I've seen him listed as a priority free agent.
I don't see it on his bio.
I will ask that of the scout who comes down to talk about him.
Packers take RB Aaron Jones, UTEP.
There's your third-down back I believe.
Jones is 5-9 1/2, 208 pounds, ran a 4.49.
Jones caught 71 passes for 646 yards and 7 TDs in four seasons at UTEP.
