Robinson is a cousin of a high school buddy of mineRB James Robinson signed to add depth to practice squad. CB Anthony Johnson also added to PS, and CB Kiondre Thomas dropped to make room.
What’s interesting is he had the most success with Vanderbilt at Safety. We obviously projected him at LB, probably because of his size coming in at 6’3X235lb. My guess is we knew he’d be a 1-2 year project because he converted to LB late in College. He comes into GB and gets injured almost immediately late Preseason which slowed his return. GB had to go another route and he was basically PT in his Rookie season eith several minor injuries. He got like a half of a season there and he really needed 2 seasons to get going in that role.by the Packers
Yes.Doesn't someone on here have a good algorithm for statistically telling if someone is a bust or not? I thought someone had an equation.
What do we know about this guy? All I saw was he once played for the NYG.
Undrafted out of Illinois St. by the Jaguars. Had a really good rookie season and blew out his Achilles. He was then traded to the Jets, got cut, signed by the Giants, got cut, signed by the Patriots, got cut, and now landed with the Packers. I wouldn't look for him to be any sort of difference maker. They didn't have any RBs on their practice squad, which seems great planning.What do we know about this guy? All I saw was he once played for the NYG.
I like doing that. One area where I feel like our Staff is “above average” is the area of brining in talent at reasonable $ mid season.Actually was becoming a STUD for Jacksonville and then an achilles injury in 2021 hampered it all.
He was a 1,000 yard rusher (plus 344 yards through air) in 2020 for Jags...put up 767 yards on the ground and 222 through air in 2021 for them as well...so before his injury this dude had amassed:
1837 rushing yards
566 receiving yards
18 TDs total
4.54 yards per rush
7.07 yards per catch
for reference of comparison Aaron Jones averages 5.1 yards per rush and 7.9 yards per reception.
Robinson was then traded during the 2022 season after 7 games with Jacksonville in a smaller role there but still producing at 4.2 yards on the ground average and 5.1 through the air to the New York Jets but wasn't really used there a ton and closed out the 2022 season with only 425 yards on the ground on 110 carries for a 3.86 ypc....and chipped in like 50 yards through the air on little over dozen catches.
WORST case you have an experienced RB3 that cannot arguably be much worse than Taylor....best case he is now fully healed and might show glimpses at what he once was. The issue there is a few teams have had him with them and let him go....
You got MOST of it. the other part of the problem is we shoulda drafted CunninghamYour conflating what happened and who is due to where we drafted him. You get a special team starter and serviceable back up LB (which he has proven he is) on mid to late Day 3 there isn’t a GM in the league that wouldn’t say yes.
I think as fans we always look to blame someone for the shortcomings of the team. I've made it known that I don't think Jordan Love is our long term answer at QB. I could be wrong, but I don't think he has the it factor. Regardless, let's look who really is to blame. Let's go back to the 2018 draft where Gute took over. My apologies if someone already did this. There's a lot of players left from the 2022 and 2023 drafts, but not some much from when he started.
Gute has drafted 61 players. Of those 61 these are the player left.
2018, 11 players drafted:
2019, 8 players drafted:
Rashan Gary, Darnell Savage, Elgton Jenkins
2020, 9 players drafted:
Jordan Love, AJ Dillon, Josiah Deguara, Jon Runyan Jr.
2021, 9 players drafted:
Eric Stokes, Josh Myers, Royce Newman, Tedarrell Slaton, Isaiah McDuffie
What should be feeding our team with good players from the draft just isn't. Overall, I think if anyone wants to point fingers the data would suggest that it should be pointed at Gute. Some might even one to use a specific finger to point at him.
thanks,Yup I've reviewed Gute's drafts quite a few times, there is a thread even somewhere.
But let's think of this in context....5 years is a long time truthfully player wise...let's look at some of the best teams this year and see where they are before judging Gute:
2018 - drafted 5 / 4 on team still
2019 - drafted 5 / 0 on team still
2020 - drafted 10 / 4 on team still
2021 - drafted 9 / 7 on team still
15 since 2018 still there
2018 - drafted 6 / 1 on team still
2019 - drafted 6 / 2 on team now, but Hardman wasn't and just rejoined last week
2020 - drafted 6 / 5 on team still
2021 - drafted 6 / 4 on team still
12 since 2018 still there
2018 - 9 drafted / 1 on team still
2019 - 8 drafted / 2 on team still
2020 - 5 drafted / All 5 on team still
2021 - 8 drafted / 6 on team still
14 since 2018 still there
2018 - 8 drafted / 3 on team still
2019 - 6 drafted / 2 on team still
2020 - 11 drafted / 6 on team still
2021 - 7 drafted / 4 on team still
15 since 2018 still there.
2018 - 12 drafted / 2 on team still
2019 - 8 drafted / 1 on team still
2020 - 10 drafted / 7 on team still
2021 - 8 drafted / 5 on team still
15 since 2018 still there
All that and Gute is at:
2018 - 11 drafted / 1 on team still
2019 - 8 drafted / 3 on team still
2020 - 9 drafted / 4 on team still
2021 - 9 drafted / 5 on team still
13 since 2018 still there
Now the one thing that truly should also be considered is what rounds each of these picks were....beyond round 3 or so it is VERY hard to expect 5 year careers out of 2018 Day 3 guys and I would bet that claim is quite valid across the league for teams to still have many of their 2018 guys.
