Only Rodgers was always rated as a round 1 QB
Grayson was rated as a 4/5 rounder. Big big difference.
Packers didnt have the 31st ranked defense either


Its not a issue with the player as much as a issue with the pick for me.
We turned down some good players to take him. I understand it,just not jumping up and down.


The picks made,i have said my piece
Im obviously now 100% behind him

So was leinart, young, etc etc etc etc

I feel ya bro, but teams took alex smith before Rodgers, he almost fell to the second round. It is not an exact science, and I may be way off, but if you asked me if I could have spent #2 on MM or #75 on GG, I am taking 75 and GG

Re: 2015 NFL Draft Day Discussion Thread

I'm ready for Round 3 of disappointment. God this team can not Draft before Lay into to me the proof is in the pudding. Go ahead and Defend the front office But explain why this team has the second worst amont of original draft picks in the nfl

And im not buying the cause we trade up argument or bountygate


16 out of 52 draft picks remain since 2006 and over half is from 2006 and 2014 drafts. That's Pathetic

Count them up and look back and see for your self

For Hire: Smart Linebacker Who Makes Plays In Space
APR 28 2015
Hayes Pullard
Middle Linebacker
USC

NFL owners, general managers, coaches and fans,

My name is Hayes Pullard and Iím writing to express my interest in becoming your next linebacker.

After a successful college career at the University of Southern California, Iím very confident that I can be an asset to your organization.

The NFL is a complex game and I pride myself on being an intelligent linebacker. In my four years of starting at USC, I played a lot of snaps against teams that relied on the speed option. This allowed me to develop great instincts for reading plays, as proven by the fact that I led the team in tackles three straight seasons. You can be the strongest and fastest guy in the world, but youíre not going to be able to do much on a football field if you donít have a feel for the game. The ability to see a play unfold before it happens canít be measured with a stopwatch or measuring stick, but youíll notice it in the final score.

Being a good linebacker really comes down to having the ability to recognize the little things. For example, if there are three guys split out wide and you see the X lined up on the back side, you know heís going to come over to where the open field is because theyíve spread it out to make sure space is vacant for somebody to come from the outside. If theyíre tight, you know there is going to be a bunch of crossing routes because they see man-to-man defense. I keep track of these things, not only for myself, but also so that I can alert my teammates and put them in a better situation on third down. The guy who makes the play is often just as important as the guy who put them in the right position to do so.

That being said, I really like being the guy who makes the play. But donít take my word for it. Letís roll the tape:

Gfycat - jiffier gifs through HTML5 Video Conversion. Fast, simple gif hosting without size limits.

When I do arrive at camp, there wonít be any concerns about whether I can pick up the system.

While I was at USC, we changed coaches every single year. From Monte Kiffin to Ed Orgeron to Clancy Pendergast to Justin Wilcox, I was able to learn something new each year, as opposed to being taught the same principles behind one system over and over. I feel comfortable saying that I can play in any system because in the past few years Iíve seen it all, from 5-2 to 3-4.

But beyond my ability to adapt on the field, you can trust that Iíll be a loyal employee. I signed with USC the year that Pete Carroll left, so I was around during some very tough years for the program. There were scholarship restrictions, which led to a lack of depth, which led to ugly losses, which led to the constant coaching changes mentioned above. But despite all this, I stayed put when I could have left. Now, after earning my degree in public policy and development, I depart from a program thatís in much better shape than when I arrived. If you decide to draft me, you can trust that I wonít be rattled by tough times. Iíve already been there and seen it through.

I understand Iím going to start off playing special teams. I have every intention of making plays in that role. The Pac-12 is all about speed and being able to cover open space, and the same could be said of covering kicks on a special teams unit. I want to become a standout in that capacity and expand my role on the team from there.

I know making it in the league is tough, but Iím no stranger to pressure. My full name is actually Hayes Pullard III, after my father, Hayes Pullard Jr., who passed away when I was in high school. Since then, my six siblings have looked to me to fill a leadership role in the family. Theyíve leaned on me and Iíve happily accepted the challenge. Now that Iíve made it to this point with my degree and my health, Iím anxious to see how far I can go. I donít view the opportunity to play in the NFL as merely a new job. I view it as a new chapter of my life.

I went to USC to fulfill my fatherís dream. I got my degree to fulfill my motherís dream. And now Iím writing this letter to you to fulfill my dream. I understand that Iím facing a tremendous challenge, but Iím confident that Iím up for it. The good ones rely on their athletic ability, but the great ones utilize their mind in order to get the most out of their athletic ability. If you draft me, know that I have no plans on being just good.

Sincerely,

Hayes Pullard III

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

LSU's La'el Collins, back in Baton Rouge to meet with police and undergo a paternity test Monday, is likely to be picked today, per sources.

If Collins goes undrafted, a team could get creative, this year or next, with roster bonuses, etc. But rookie pool restricts that spending.



Creative accounting!
