    I don't post here often but I looked for this type of list for a while and could find nothing. Eventually I found a starting point of a few names and I've ran with it from there, adding new names and pro days and adding as many sources as I could find. I figured since I browse this forum and I know it's pretty active for the draft that I would throw this info up here.

    If you have any new information or sources I don't have listed, please post them and I'll try and add information as it gets released.

    Also, this is a work in progress of sorts. So it's kind of a mess right now. I'll get it sorted more as I have time.

    Well, now that we have it narrowed down......JK. Nice job. It does appear that there was a bit of an emphasis on offense (WR/RB) at the combine, which is just an observation and means absolutely nothing....or does it???? Sometimes I wish I was more of a basketball fan so I wouldn't drive myself so nuts this time of year.

    From my take, they're working out potential FAs.

    Lol, yeah. It's a lot of guys. I'm just going by what Scout said in terms of who they watched.

    I got a few more I'll add tonight or tomorrow. I think the thing to watch more so is who they talked to at the Combine or for example the Colorado School of Mines kid that they went to see twice. People they have looked at/talked to twice.

    I believe it's Hamler, the School of Mines kid, and uhh Dwayne Harris seem to be the guys they've gone for multiple looks at.

    Ted was at the UCLA pro day today, I assume to watch Akeem Ayers who ran a 4.69 40 which was a lot better than his 4.83

    Great Job mate, have to agree with PackersRS, looks like they are covering potential FA loss.

    Looking like the first 3 rounds could be DE, OLB and WR.. in any order.

    For what it's worth. The people TT has interviewed or looked at heavily in the past haven't ended up on the Packers squad all that much.

    Raji was looked at and interviewed a lot. We supposedly looked at Clay 3 times. But the rest of the guys were all UDFA or late picks that made it here.

    2009:B.J. Raji, Jamarko Simmons, Clay Matthews III, T.J. Lang, Jamon Meredith, Cyril Obiozor

    2010: Josh Gordy, Nick McDonald, Antonio Robinson, Anthony Levine

    Okay, I respect you for adding sources and switching it around a bit. But you stole this almost directly from here:

    NFL Forum :: - Packers Interest in Prospects

    For instance, the last post on hits, from FF:


    2009 Version
    Hits: B.J. Raji, Jamarko Simmons, Clay Matthews III, T.J. Lang, Jamon Meredith, Cyril Obiozor

    2010 Version
    Hits: Josh Gordy, Nick McDonald, Antonio Robinson, Anthony Levine

    Workouts portion from FF:



    Workouts:
    Chris Adingupu - FS - Prairie View A&M
    Quinton Spears - DE - Prairie View A&M
    Antareis Bryan - CB - Baylor
    Likely: Dwayne Harris - WR - ECU (Confirmation Needed)

    Pro Day attendance portion from FF:

    Central Michigan (Zombo + Scout)
    TCU (Newhouse + Scout)

    Identical to here.

    Give credit where credit is due.

    The site he is quoting is open and not copyright protected, so I see no problem if he copy/pastes. That list is available on probably 50+ sites on the internet.

    There is nothing wrong with copy/paste, just say that you are copying and don't make it seem like you did all the work.

    Could you also please list the 50+ sites. Thanks

    Easy answers:
    A. The Author here listed his sources the author at FF did not... who is more credible ?
    B. 50 would be a low number. There are dozens of draft sites all over. NFP has been listing work outs daily.
    C. You violated the terms of use at FF by linking another forum so I would lose the righteous attitude.
    D. Terms of use at FF states that all posts are owned by FF NOT the author.... LIXX AKA Shot of Ginn has no claim to that post or anything else on that site.

    If ShotofGinn wants to protect his stuff then post it on your blog not on a Privately owned forum.

    No reason to resort to name calling.

    And Shot of Gin, unless you have any proof he stole it from you or any other, it's just unfound accusation.

    For all I know, he personally put together that list. It is different, at least in format, to yours'. Plus, the sourcing on each prospect is a great job.

    The sources on FF are scattered through out the 30 page thread. There are way to many similarities and identical forms of typing (Newhouse + Scout) and the same order (non alphabetical) on the list of pro day visits. Plagiarism at it's finest right here folks.

    Just because it's on the internet does NOT mean it's free to take and steal. I see some of you have never taken a college English class that states exactly what plagiarism is. Just cause you changed the wording of part of it, does not make it not plagiarism.

    plagiarism
    • a piece of writing that has been copied from someone else and is presented as being your own work
    • the act of plagiarizing; taking someone's words or ideas as if they were your own
    So, by putting sources for the information, he was doing it right even though he changed some of it and compiled the list as he saw fit.

    And as far as I can tell, he took nothing from your blog.

    So it can be read by anyone? My god, that means you can take any information and pass it as your own -- right Wizard 87? Word for Word? Straight from my blog/FF? I don't charge fee's to go to my blog, so that means you can just steal it? That's plagiarism folks, sorry you guys didn't go to college. You took my information, and passed it off as your own.

    Reading over that quote Wizard 87 -- you're clueless. All that is saying is that you don't want to disclose personal information because anybody can view the site, and any consequences (i.e. identity theft) is not the responsibility of the site, owners, admins, and moderators.

    The second part states that they can take away your privileges at any point in time, with out reason at their sole discretion.

    Are you really that clueless? Where in there does it say, "If you post anything on this forum, it can be stolen without consequence by anyone else and passed off as their own work."?
