    Hope it isn't Finley. He was definitely outperformed by other TE's in the combine thus far.

    Combine doesn't automatically show nfl success.

    but finley has shown himself to be an idiot... not "Packer People".... I wonder if I'm "Packer People". And for the record, I am the Number One Koren Robinson fan.

    Yeah, games are played on the field, not in a weight room with cameras and reporters.

    It may not but it certainly points up a very slow 40 time ala Bubba and a lack of physicality easily outperformed by the rest of the TE combine participants.

    I think the more important thing to focus on in the combine for TEs was the drops they had.

    In general, I've read opinions that were concerned with the poor showing TEs had in terms of catching the ball.

    Doubt that a team would find everything they are looking for in a TE at this point. For GB I'm sure blocking as well as good hands are high priorities but, getting one with speed for down field exploitation would be high on their list of attributes. All of that said it would take a miracle to find one
    TE with all of those capabilities. Someone like a Ron Kramer would be real find.

    James Jones ran a 4.6 and he out ran the entire Broncos secondary, including a slightly hindered Champ.

    Yes, it would be a miracle. A TE with those abilities will be gone before the #30 pick. I'd be happy with a decent blocker and a good downfield threat, making opposing Ds worry about both our new TE and Lee. Imagine what that would open up.

    Franks had no speed at all. He wasn't a downfield threat, so opposing Ds knew if he did a pass pattern, it would be five to eight yards.

    The other thing we need to look at is health. I'm not crazy about picking up TEs in the middle of the season. We need one that will stay healthy.

    Or at least draft someone to run with Donald Lee. The idea of Lee and Crumpler reminds me of Chumura and Keith Jackson. That worked out pretty damn well.

    I don't think there is a single TE worthy of a 1st Round pick, but I could be wrong on that. I just don't see any Winslow's or Shockeys in this group.

    Pretty cool that John Carlson's stock has dropped, we could get him in the 3rd for a steal.

    Sounds like Crumpler may be on his way to Seattle.

    Alge probably wants to know who his QB is going to be.

    Okay, I'm drunk right now - hell it's 4.50 AM here. But Dustin Keller guys... I'm really hyper about this guy. He might not be big, but hell - I'd love to see him in the green and gold.

    drunk...
