Ben Braunecker may have been worth a late-round flier due to his high upside,Tyler Eifert Jersey instead falling to the Bears as an undrafted free agent.
Fifth-round pass catcher Trevor Davis will give the Packers’ receiving group an injection of speed it sorely lacked last term,John Brown Jersey but the day three selection is no guarantee to make the roster. Davis will compete with third-year wideouts Adams,Brandon Marshall Jersey Jeff Janis and Jared Abbrederis as well as second-year Ty Montgomery.
If there’s one area you can’t be critical of Thompson,Jaylon Smith Jersey it’s when drafting receivers. His hits easily outweigh his misses,Sterling Shepard Jersey although the pessimistic might point to the decision to select Adams in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft when Allen Robinson and Jarvis Landry were still on the board.
It’s been discussed countless times how a change-of-pace style running back could add another dimension to the Packers’ offense.Kenny Clark Jersey After Lacy’s issues last season paired with James Starks‘ inability to hang onto the football, now more than ever felt like the perfect time to add a speedy bit-part back to turn on the afterburners.Thomas Davis Jersey
Illinois’ Josh Ferguson fit the bill. He is far from a bell-cow back who can take the ball 20 times a game,Martellus Bennett Jersey but his combination of speed and pass-catching ability would have made him a useful chess piece for Mike McCarthy to move around. Ferguson signed with the Colts as an undrafted free agent.Jimmy Graham Jersey
With Nelson’s return to health, a rejuvenated Lacy and a cleaner bill of health along the offensive line,Artie Burns Jersey the Packers may well return to the heights of 2014 offensively. Yet after a season in which the defense did enough to win a championship as the offense uncharacteristically sputtered, it’s somewhat strange more emphasis wasn’t placed on surrounding Rodgers with more talent.
