Vikings should take him. They could redshirt him during Cousins last year then he's ready to take over in 2021. 

But that would be the smart thing to do. Instead they will throw 100 million plus at Cousins for 3 more years and waste the remaining years of their outside shot of a Super Bowl. Then you tear it all down and start over. Make it happen, Vikes!

Draft mandate: get a fucking receiver. Get 3 maybe. These stiffs (aside from Adams) aren’t cutting it. Rodgers doesn’t make receivers great anymore, which is fine, so get him some talent so they can elevate each other. Oh find a TE too.

I think Tonyan would be decent if given a chance.    Rodgers likes his guys and Bobby ain’t one of them. 

2020 key UFA

Name - Pos - Age - 2019 Salary
Bryan Bulaga RT 31 $6,750,000
Tramon Williams CB 37 $5,000,000
Mason Crosby K 35 $4,025,000
G. Allison WR 26 $2,800,000

B.J. Goodson ILB 27 $730,552
I. Campbell SS 28 $720,000
Blake Martinez ILB 26 $680,848

Boo-lager will be back if he comes in at a reasonable salary. He may have a couple good years left. I could see them cutting him free.

Gotta think Tramon is gone based on aging out..though one year deal may be in the making

I expect Crosby to be back at a reasonable salary

Allison will be back, they just like him too much, and it will be at a reasonable salary

Adios Marcedes...although he's our best backup OT

Grant is cheap, but hasn't shown me anything yet

Fackrell will be gone...we have too much money invested in the Smiffs and Gary

Goodson I think will beback

Campbell will be back

Martinez will probably get way more money than the Packers are willing to spend...and that's probably a good thing fo us. We need a serious ILB upgrade in terms of athleticism

2020 key UFA


Bryan Bulaga: I'd imagine GB will resign him.  He's good when healthy.
Tramon Williams: It's probably time to retire.
Mason Crosby: Need to resign this guy.

G. Allison: He sucks.  I wouldn't let him play for free.
Marcedes Lewis: Let him walk. There's young talent on the roster.
Ryan Grant: Not even sure what this guy can or can't do.
Kyler Fackrell: He'll get paid elsewhere. Can he play MLB??
B.J. Goodson: Don't give a shit about this guy one way or the other. 
I. Campbell: Resign if its cheap. Dime a dozen player. 
Blake Martinez: We can't afford him. Gute needs to find 2 MLBs. 

Gotta cut Graham to create cap space too.

Agree Parkz.  Need to resign Bulaga and Mason.   Yeah, Bulaga gets hurt, but his production even playing 12 games is really hard to replace. 

I think we sign 1 or 2 guys via Free Agency and then keep trying to plug holes via the draft.     If Gute can hit another draft like this years with 2 immediate starters, we will be a lot closer.   

Pressing Holes to fill:

  • #2 WR
  • Defensive End
  • Two MLB's
  • CB

Other Holes:

  • TE depth, will be left with Turdberger and Tonyan
  • Swing Tackle
  • Interior OL (Depth or possibly supplant Linsley)
  • RB.  Both Williams and Jones are FA the following year.

PFF 2020 NFL Mock Draft: Tua Tagovailoa lands in Green Bay

Tua is a hard player to figure out. The results are there, but his supporting cast has been so great that it's hard to figure out who was making who better. I think he's a good QB in the mold of Russell Wilson and sitting behind Rodgers for the next 3 years would probably help polish is game as a passer. Tough call, I would say no just because I don't think he's actually an insane value here compared to 2005 with Rodgers. I don't think he's as good of a QB prospect as Mahomes and Watson were in '17, who went 10 and 12, and I don't think he's as good of a prospect as Lamar Jackson who shockingly went 32nd in '18. I think he's right behind them and 27 might be about right in terms of value, but I think there will be better values available later. If he's available in Round 2 then we're definitely on to something.

If he's available in Round 2 then we're definitely on to something.  

Availability is a trait you have to scout. He's started 24 games in college and has had to have high ankle surgeries twice and fractured his hip. This is while being protected by an offensive line that dominates most teams they play against and being surrounded by skill position players that are high NFL draft picks. 

I'd be worried about his durability once he gets to the NFL. When his OL isn't light years ahead of the pass rushers on the opposing defense, he's likely to take even more hits. 

If he doesn't get flagged by teams' medical staffs, he'll probably be long gone by the time the Packers pick. He's a great prospect, but I'd be scared he's going to spend a lot of time in the training room once he has to play regularly. 

We need an ILB and by our pick in Round 2 of the draft next Spring, many may be gone. At #27, I'd pick Kenneth Murray, of Oklahoma. A solid ILB with sideline to sideline coverage skills and speed, Murray could fill the void if Martinez or Burks  is released or traded. As for WR, Jerry Jeudy will probably be gone by our pick. Laviska Shennault, Henry Ruggs or Cee Cee Lamb may be there at #27. All of these WRs will be gone before we pick in the 2nd round. Two O line guys who may fit the Packers are Calvin Throckmorton, Oregon and Trey Smith, Tennessee. Throckmorton and Smith play both OG and OT. They may be available after Round 1, as well.
