Ain’t gonna happen. He’s going to run a sub 4.3 40 tomorrow at 210 and then catch everything thrown at him in drills and by mid March he’ll be top 15. He’s not top 15. He’s not top 32. Actually. 
but he is exactly what every NFL team wants on the field in 2020. Fast, quick, elusive, hands, and fast. Blazing ass fast.

Saw Dick Pound trending today. Craziest name ever. 

Dick Trickle (RIP) Hold my St Pauli. Girl. 

Craziest ever?
Many years ago, I worked for a retailer where we did our own 'direct marketing'.
We came across a name on the mailing list that bordered on the unbelievable.
His first name was Harry, his last name was spelled remarkably close to a slang word for a certain part of a woman's anatomy....

I was thinking it had to be a made-up name until I met the man in person.
And he informed me that he had to go through the Army with that name! 

I knew a guy who's name was Harry Johnson.  He won tickets to a concert or something on the radio and they didn't believe it was his real name so he had to go to the radio station to collect the tickets.  He even got on the air during the morning show and he got to read off funny names on the air.  

As for Cephus as a Badgers fan it is tough to evaluate him.  It seems like he has all the talent in the world but IMHO it is so hard to evaluate a WR in the Badgers offense.  That being said I wouldn't be disappointed if the Packers took a later round flyer on him.

It appears that Wisconsin wide receiver Quintez Cephus wants to play for the Packers.  But do the Packers want him?  Here is the link.  Scroll down to number 10.  

Item #4 talks about the ILB's on the Packer's roster.  I'd forgotten about Curtis Bolton and how good he looked in preseason before tearing up his ACL.

But remember, Bolton was not very fast either and that's what we need.

Cephus reminds me a lot of Davante Adams.  Maybe not the biggest or fastest guy but has outstanding body control and usually comes down with the ball (contested or not).  Pretty good blocker in run support as well.  

We could do a lot worse than him. 

I love the Badgers. Though, when it comes to receiving skills, I cannot see how Cephus would be better than what we now have for WRs in GB. He would be a late round add if the Packers wanted him and he would not get picked for his speed. Sure handedness might be why he gets drafted. Another late round WR to look at, in the Cephus mold, is Jauan Jennings from Tennessee. Again, Jennings is not fast but he can catch the ball and shed tacklers while moving the chains. For me, the two fastest WRs are Jalen Reagor and KJ Hamler. Either of those two guys are what we fans are asking for in a WR--speed and ability to separate. After watching a bit of the WR workouts in the Combine, I think we can add Chase Claypool to the speedy receivers' list. Another speedy option for GB to scout.

Richard Dribble...his friends call him Dick.

Cephus reminds me more of James Jones than Adams. If he's there in the later rounds I think it'd be a pretty good value pick.

 ILB Kenneth Murray tells me he has met formally with the #packers - they were actually his very first formal interview of the week.

That's my bet.  Packers go ILB at Round 1.

Rounds 2,3 (WR, OT)

They also focused on defense because the two most important positions on offense that you almost always have to use a 1st round pick to get the top guys are QB and LT, and they've been covered there continuously for 20+ years. If you aren't covered there, teams almost always reach to try to find someone. 

In the last 28 years, the Packers have basically used two round picks on a QB (they traded the 1992 first rounder for Favre). They only used one 2nd round pick on a QB (Brohm) in the last 28 years as well. Green Bay hasn't drafted a QB above the 5th round since 2008 (Brohm) and he's the only guy other than Rodgers they've drafted in the first 4 rounds other than Rodgers this century. 

The Bears have used 3 high first round picks on a QB in the last 20 years and gave up 2 first rounders (and a third) for Cutler. A quarter of the their first round picks were invested at QB since 1999. The Vikings picked 3 QBs in the first round in that time frame and traded a first rounder for Bradford. 

With the exception of 2012, the Packers starting LT has been either Chad Clifton or Bakh. Getting those guys with 2nd and 4th round picks is amazing. 

The glass half empty way of looking at this is that the Packers have had the most important offensive positions covered for 28 years (QB) and 21 years (LT) and been able to invest more at other positions and didn't take advantage.
