    The season is VERY young, but I'm very pleased with the amount of play and the type of performance our draft class (and UDFAs) have had...for such a limited year practice wise and such it honestly shocks me a ton:

    Jordan Love: Obviously hopefully his statline stays at zero...
    AJ Dillon: Very Limited snaps (tough behind a STUD and a SOLID NLF RB).

    Josiah Deguara: This kid can play and is a versatile TE unlike any other one we have. Was bummed he was a banged up scratch for the NO week, but I expect we see him as we did early on more and more.

    Kamaal Martin: If he hadn't gotten injured he was to many the CLEAR favorite to play second most snaps at ILB other than Kirksey....many of us cannot wait to see what happens when he gets back.

    Jon Runyan: Has been called into action already and for a 6th rounder did well. Folks it isn't a matter of IF Runyan is asked to do more for us, it is merely when (I predict next year).

    Jake Hanson: Just no need for him YET, next year is his year to make a push once Linsley leaves and Patrick may prove viable/better at Guard for us.

    Simon Stepaniak: We will have to wait till next year to see if there is anything here..

    Vernon Scott: only 8 snaps but has 4 solo tackles (one being a sack)

    Jonathan Garvin: Has played 14% of the snaps and while only has 1 tackle to show for it, anyone watching tape sees why he is slowly earning his snaps.

    Krys Barnes: As an UDFA, dude has simply been a beast. Has only played on 27.3% of the snaps, yet has 19 tackles (10 solo).....for reference Kirksey is only guy with more tackles at 27 but has played 74.4% of the snaps for us.


    While it is VERY early...folks this was a rather solid draft class...and the crazy thing is Kamaal we have to wait, Dillon will slowly progress and of course Love is a long term thing....it still isn't what I'd have done, but man if the class is contributing right out the gate.

    Very pleased and surprised that they have played as much as they have. Kudos to our scouts for finding these guys. It bodes well for our future.

    IM BACK. :)

    I said something to the effect of "I like Krys Barnes more than Martin." & I didn't understand the Martin pick because his 2019 tape was horrid but 2018 tape looked great. Martin coming along great until the injury. The combo of Martin and Barnes would be nice in the future. Let's just hope Martin stays healthy. Either way, I think Ty Summers has filled in the role very nicely. Best ability is availability. If Summers or Barnes churns a career like AJ Hawk, that would be a steal for 7th rounder & UDFA.

    Tipa Galeai looks great as a pass rusher in the limited snaps. FAST and crazy first step. But so are elite tackles in NFL and they have what Galeai doesn't have; strength. Galeai needs a year or two in the Packers strength program, if he gets stronger I can see him edge out Garvin. I feel like every time Garvin and Burks are on the field, teams run to their side and just completely take them out of the play.

    The first game Deguara was in.. He looked great! Outstanding blocker. He really is a missing piece to this offense. Sad he's missing this season.

    :poop: I told the others that we needed to triple bar the door, but NO-O-O they just trusted changing the locks and keycodes, assuming the moat would keep you from the back door. :p:p:p:p
