    Well at least we agree Lynch is a serious talent. I wouldn't be opposed to the Packers taking him if hes there at 16. Although if he runs a 4.3 at the combine the Packers may as well wave bye bye to getting Lynch.

    What is encouraging about the responses in this thread is the dose of healthy scepticism I see.

    Lynch could turn out to be a very good NFL player. Or he could be a bust.

    NFL player selection is a modified crap shoot. You make your best guess given what you see. But just because Junior can run fast, etc. doesn't mean he will do squat when the pads come on.

    Dominating the college game is just that, the college game. All you see there are indicators of how someone will play against a LEAGUE FULL of players with similar abilities.

    Often a player is picked by the wrong team. I think of Jamal Reynolds. If he had been drafted by a 3-4 team as an outside rush end/linebacker, he might have stuck. How can he blow NFL scouts away in college and be so bad in the pros? Possibly misplacement, or he simply dominated the college game, but couldn't at the next level.

    The rumors floating out is the team thinks A. Green could be out the door if he wants too much money. They also might be committed to a new back.

    One rumor has it they would send KGB to Denver(who needs a rush end) with a draft pick for Tatum Bell and a pick. Bell would be a good pickup in this offense. It also solves the Jenkins situation and allows the Packers to pick up an offensive end or defensive back, which is a need.

    On point, I think Lynch is an example of what I call "Kiper-Hype", which means people "move up and down" prior to the draft. Based on what? Other than the Senior Bowl, they haven't put the pads on in several weeks.

    Peterson is the real deal, to some. Lynch is too. But both could be the "can't miss" that might.

    Tatum Bell was a third rounder and could well start for the Packers.

    The real draft is not the first round. The team is built around solid drafting in rounds 2-5.

    Good post net!

    I was thinking something very similar to what your getting at with Jamal.
    When I said Sherman drafted projects but didn't have the staff to develop them, I think that's what happened with Jamal.

    Interesting post, and I get the gist of what you're saying; that the college game doesn't tranlsate into the NFL.

    That's a good point.

    On a completely different note....
    I'm sorry to point this out, but(as a journalist), the amount of grammatical errors takes away from your message...


    "encouraging about the responses in this this thread ARE the healthy dose"
    "very good NFL player, OR he could be a bust"


    What exactly is a MODIFIED crap shoot? Don't you just mean crap shoot?
    Crap shoot enough is good.


    That would be "Dominating the college game is just that; the COLLEGE Game."


    That would be "OftenTIMES, a player is...."

    The rumors floating around ARE that the team thinking A.Green is out OF the door. They might be committed to a new back? How can they be commmited if they MIGHT be doing it? Doesn't make sense. Maybe "considering committing" to a new back is better...

    "On Point" is overused and doesn't really say anything. Something like "having said that, etc" works

    Just my 2 cents.

    See, we should have spell checker before we submit our posts. That'd be a great PF.com addition. ;)

    His name is 'net' not 'NET'. He's not the only one who could use it, myself included.

    You mean the number of grammatical errors, not the amount of grammatical errors.

    Dont you hate it when that happens?

    them on the next level.

    It's wonderful when users own themselves with an edit. It saves me the trouble. Thank you.

    And yes, back to the thread after you've been humiliated.

    2, You nit picked a good post, I am going to defend good posts other wise they will happen less frequent if tards pick them apart instead of focusing on the good content of the post.
    3, "Zero you didn't do ANYTHING as always..." --... oh please, I've contributed to this forum more than you will ever know.
    4, Quit your whinning and if you have an issue with me PM the admin via this Link.

    Please stop trying to get the last word in and tempt the managers from banning you again.

    Lynch's 40 yard time should be 4.3-4.4. That's blazing

    I think it's safe to say we've gotten as much out of this thread as we could.
