    Exactly. I was avoiding "corpsman" at all costs!

    I think Bostick will have a hard time making an impact in 2014, especially if he won´t be able to participate in OTAs. It´s even possible he won´t make the 53.

    He's fast, like Finley fast. He was a WR in college. He's Finley's natural replacement imo.

    Bostick is very fast, but he´s not as physical as the other TEs on the roster. I think he´ll have a hard time making an impact, especially as he still hasn´t been able to practice due to the foot surgery he had at the end of last season.

    He would literally have to be 4.3 40 yard dash fast to be a mismatch. Personally I want the TE that is 6'7" and 265-270Lbs and has a decent vertical. THAT is a mismatch.

    I think Lyerla, while only being 6-4, could be a matchup nightmare with his 39 inch vertical jump (that was four inches more than any other TE at the combine).

    Not if he is used in a double TE, single back formation like Keith Jackson and Finley (earlier) was used. He's going to get single coverage from a safety or LB. I don't know what Bostick's vertical is but I would guess it is somewhere in the 33-36 range. I think he has basketball in his resume. He was starting to show as a weapon that could get open before he got hurt. Like CptnWimm says, his recovery from foot injury may be determining factor.

    I don´t doubt Bostick could be a nice pass catching TE (he had a 36 inch vertical jump at his pro day), just think that Lyerla has way more upside than him. In addition Bostick has to improve his run blocking significantly.

    FWIW Mark Murphy told Drew Smith from Fox 11 that the Packers are working on a contract extension for Jordy Nelson.

    We have the "best receivers in the NFL"









    Let Boykin have a conscience and still have a job. Are no. 4 Boykin. lol . janis is a sexy experiment like Charles Johnson was last year. Practice squad material that will get stolen and not make a roster as a "every play receiver"

    We didn't draft a ILB because he is in camp.

    Cobb "run's like a deer" and I think is a more reliable option to Seattle's "Percy can i show up Harvin"

    Jordy and Aaron and the "back shoulder" is one for the record books.

    Adams makes JJ look slow

    Abberderis reminds me of Decker.

    Myles white might not make the roster

    If we need you Boykin you are "so reliable"

    You can further analyze this with passes thrown to. You'd be surprised at Jordy's dominance. He's elite right now.

    Regardless of who lines up at WR/TE, if they can run routes and get reasonable separation, they will be solid because of who is throwing to them.

    Jennings took the payday, Nelson gets it and will stay. Driver experienced it with both Favre and Rodgers.

    Brooks, Freeman, Driver, Jennings, Nelson, Cobb, Chumura, Franks, Finley all have benefitted because of who is throwing the football.

    Green Bay has been blessed to have nearly 25 years of incredible QB play. Unfortunately, don't think that DD gets in the HOF.

    Out of all the receivers that have caught balls in GB for a 1/4 of a century, Sterling Sharpe is likely the only one that would have made a major impact in the NFL with another team. It's a shame his career was cut short.

    I agree with most of your post but this part I do not. I think Driver would have been an impact player regardless of where he played. Yes, having 4 get him the rock helped but that doesn't change his skill set and his willingness to go over the middle. He had nice hands, amazing leaping ability and more than enough speed to take the top off a defense. Brett was amazing but I honestly think that without DD's toughness and leaping ability many of those completions and TD's would have been incomplete. Once you get over the whole underdog story and judge him on skill-set and heart alone I think 80 would have been an impact player on many other squads. Thankfully we never got the chance to find out!

    Love Double D. He is one of the classiest Packer players to run a route, engage the media logically and represent GB. I wish he would get consideration for the HOF. His story is an inspiration! Only GB jersey I bought that isn't signed and hanging in my basement.

    driver is one of my favorite players of all time and even I would never argue his case for the HOF bc honestly there isnt one.

    I love Driver as well but his numbers don´t warrant being inducted into the HOF.
