    Out of all the rookies we signed this year who do you think will have the most success this year? Also who will have the most success in the long term?

    Randall Cobb is my answer to both questions.

    Cobb due to ST. I still think rookies as a norm won't have much impact this year.

    From listening to coaches and other players on how he has performed in practice I'm going with Cobb.

    DJ Williams since Finley might be injured anytime and Cobb in the long run.

    No, I think he will get reps in reguardless of Finley being healthy. I want to see several sets of dual TEs.

    Cobb will help right away on our ST!

    Sherrod will hopefully be a long-term OL guy.. kinda like Chad / Mark.

    That new RB Green will be fun to watch this pre-season also... his highlight reel from college is awesome!

    Alex Green (RB). I know it sounds off the wall with all the other talent we signed, but I have a Spider Sense for him. I think he is going to be a huge part of our up and coming running game.

    I want to say Cobb but I have a feeling Williams is going to make Finley expendable.

    I don't think any will have much impact but Cobb will probably be the most valuable this upcoming season.

    Need ... more ... data. History tells us to be careful about drawing conclusions from pre season games, let alone before the first pre season game. Can’t wait to get a look at 'em.

    Very true. I based my opinion on gut feeling (Spider Sense) and what film I saw of them. Hopefully we lucked out and got some decent picks that may not have so much as an impact this year but the following year.

    I'm stuck in between Cobb and Sherrod.. Both players will be huge playmakers and difference makers in games in 3 years.. Even this year I bet they will show some good signs of being special!

    I have to agree with Kitten: Alex Green.

    Can't wait to see what he can do as our 3rd down back. Could be a potent weapon for Rodgers... possibly more than Jackson ever was.

    id love to see house and sherrod excel...the more cover corners that can play will only make it that much harder for the opposition...it is wishful thinking for house....sherrod probably won't beat Lang for the job...the most likely is Randle and Alex...they will be used and more noticeable then the other pickups

    Randal Cobb. If he can stay sure handed i can see him being involved in both punt and kick returns and maybe see a few gadget type plays a week maybe a few of them end up being big plays. Probably best case scenario for our rookies.

    Don't write-off Davon House yet.
    He might be our 4th best CB already.

    And don't forget about DJ Williams, the solid TE.
    He reminds me of an Antonio Gates the way he moves, and snatches the ball. He's just a bit shorter than Gates

    If Grant and Starks miss any time, watch out for ALEX GREEN.

    I'm betting on Randall Cobb, he's going to be an asset to this team.
