    True, maybe they gave up on him to early, maybe he hated GB the town, maybe he was one of those many many kids who take a few years to mature. Who knows

    Adams is a lock to make the team as well. I expect White, Harper, Dorsey, Abbrederis and Janis to battle for two remaining spots on the 53.

    The battle for the starting spot at TE is wide open and it´s way too early to tell who will start at Seattle in week 1.

    Nelson, Cobb, Boykin and Adams are locks. Think the other 2 new guys, Abbrederis and Janis make the squad as well.

    Guessing Quarless is our starter early in the season, but won't be surprised if Richard Rodgers takes over that spot. I'm more interested to see if we start showing some 2-TE sets.

    Nelson, Cobb, Boykin, Adams will take the top 4 spots. The 5th I think goes to Abbrederis if he can be used as a punt returner and the 6th spot is wide open.

    Rodgers will play both QB & TE. Tough but it will happen

    This WR group is what I am thinking currently as well....I hope we can hide Janis on the Practice squad one year to grow and be there in case of injuries but gonna be tough keeping him there...I also love what I have been hearing from Harper, would not be shocked if Harper makes them keep 6 WRs because you know full well they won't want to let 2 of their 3 WR picks go to practice squad.

    TE is interesting to me and while I see Quarless as the starter I do see Rodgers if he can pick up the playbook quickly becoming a interesting threat other teams have to deal with...and then there is the darkhorse with the most ability but most unknown Lyerla. Lyerla was rated the second best TE before his departure from Oregon and if he stays clean in GB honestly in 4 or 5 years could be a Donald Driver type story all over again with being a HUGE steal with what it took to grab him.

    Ross was also a Muff punt return and kick return guy.

    I think it comes down to how well Rodgers can block in-line at TE. If he can do that then I don't see why he wouldn't have a chance of playing right away or starting soon over Quarless.

    Janis was the 236th pick in this year´s draft, if the Packers feel he isn´t ready to produce in the league this season I don´t think teams will line up to grab him off our practice squad.

    I think people overlook Bostic to readily at TE. MM has gone on record as saying he's the best blocker amongst the TEs and he got placed on the active roster because teams were excited about his big play ability. The guy has been raw and if he continues to improve this offseason, I see no reason to think he wouldn't be the starter.

    BB was overweight coming into OTA's (270) and hopefully no setbacks w/ his injury...Rich Rodgers has been getting a lot of positive attention in OTA's...can't freaking wait for preseason and actually see what's up

    I don't think BB is on the outside but I do feel Lyerla's upside if clean is going to make it hard for Pack to choose BB over him...in a perfect world we keep BB as well but here's the thing....6 WRs is highly likely...could numbers allow also 4 active TEs...all depends on some other position numbers and who can roll with special teams too....

    Would it surprise if BB woke up and shake people to realize he shouldn't have been kinda forgotten...not at all and for the Pack's sake I hope he does.

    I think Janis is better than Charles Johnson whom we couldn't hide.....

    Really Munny? I know it is one tough schedule but I think they'll have their best offense since AR has been starting, and they did improve the defense (although DC and that unit have to prove themselves). Still, I think 11-5 is realistic and will win the NFC North again. Beyond that - will depend on how well the defense plays. I don't want another 15-1, one and done season. The defense has to get back way closer to 2010 form. Still with this offense, they should win most games where they don't allow more than 21 points. We'll see.

    Nelson took a step back last year? 1300 yards and 8 games w/o Rodgers. Not sure I agree with that. Boykin will make the team and I think it will be between him and the rookie Adams for no. 3. They are going to be cutting some good WRs before September.

    ^^^in wolf's defense he stated that about Jordy last August so not based on last season but the season prior.

    A problem inherent in posters digging up old threads.
