Packers Draft Pick History: Seven picks at #194 with little to show for it

Meanwhile, Spencer Ware is the only real notable player picked in this spot in recent years.

The Green Bay Packers hold ten draft picks in the 2019 NFL Draft, and for a team that has a storied, 100-year history, they have predictably made selections in the past at every one of these draft slots. Over the next few days leading up to this year’s draft, Acme Packing Company will examine the Packers’ history at each current slot for 2019, as well as run down the names of recent picks around...

Wednesday Cheese Curds: Packers welcome Cole Madison back with open arms

The former fifth round pick started his delayed NFL career after taking time to address some mental health issues

It’s a script Hollywood has used on multiple occasions.

A person has a gift, then that same person falls on hard times. They then need to overcome some obstacles to reach the peak of whatever they do and they succeed, growing and maturing as they go.

It’s a script Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Cole Madison hopes to duplicate as he embarks on the start of his delayed NFL...

Back with Pack, Madison says 'life was on the line'

Packers guard Cole Madison says he took time away from football last season to focus on his mental health: "I had to go help myself before my football career."

Drafting a first-round tight end would be a rarity for the Packers

Noah Fant and T.J. Hockenson are among the top talents at a position the Packers have targeted in the first round only a handful of times.

With Matt LaFleur and Nathaniel Hackett overseeing the Green Bay Packers’ offense, there figures to be plenty of “12” personnel sets in 2019. And to be effective, the Packers need talent at the tight end position.

With Jimmy Graham, Marcedes Lewis, and Robert Tonyan returning in 2019, Green Bay has the bodies necessary for two-tight end sets....

2019 NFL mock draft: Packers zero in on T.J. Hockenson, Chris Lindstrom

The Packers surround Aaron Rodgers with two high-end offensive prospects in SB Nation’s final 2019 mock draft.

SB Nation’s final draft of 2019 has arrived. In just a few days, the Green Bay Packers and other teams will make their choices official and end the months-long speculation about prospects. Draft guru Dan Kadar can also go on his long-awaited vacation to Tahiti, a deserved break from the grind of college tape and player evaluation.

What is the Packers’ biggest need going into the 2019 NFL Draft?

One group of fans says it’s the offensive line, but what’s your take?

Last week, SB Nation and Acme Packing Company asked our FanPulse survey group a simple question: what is the top need for the Green Bay Packers in the 2019 NFL Draft?

Picking between four choices — offensive line, safety, tight end, or other — the group of respondents went with the offensive line, as almost half of all those surveyed picked that position as need number one. Perhaps the team and general manager...

Tuesday Cheese Curds: Botched 2015 Draft Still Haunts Packers

The ghosts of bad drafts past continue to spook the Packers even in 2019

They say hindsight is 20/20 and it could not be clearer when searching for two moments in particular that put the Green Bay Packers on the path to where they are right now.

The worst part is both events occurred back-to-back. The first is the blown lead the Packers suffered against the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game in January 2015. That game created cracks in the foundation of the franchise that would not be...

Drew Lock an option for Packers?

Fourteen years ago, the Packers bypassed top help for Brett Favre by taking Aaron Rodgers. After being far more active in free agency this offseason than they were in Ted Thompson‘s first as GM in 2005, would Brian Gutekunst use a similar strategy? After using a 30-visit on Drew Lock, the Packers indeed like the former Missouri quarterback, Matt Miller of Bleacher Report tweets. Green Bay also tried to meet with Daniel Jones, but could not set up a visit. However, Lock might not be...

Packers GM admits ‘subterfuge’ in some pre-draft visits

The period of time before the NFL Draft can be a chaotic one. A lot of the rumors that make their way into the public sphere can turn out to be pretty inaccurate. It turns out that at least one team is happy to feed those rumors. According to Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst, his team’s pre-draft interview subjects fell into three categories: players they needed medical evaluations on, players they wanted more information on and subterfuge. In other words, the Packers...

Succession plan or subterfuge? Why Packers visited with Drew Lock

Brian Gutekunst knows there will come a time when he must find Aaron Rodgers' replacement, but he said a succession plan at QB can be "overhyped."

Five possible scenarios for the Packers with the 12th pick in the NFL draft

An unpredictable first round puts a host of different options on the table for Green Bay. Here are some potential situations and how Brian Gutekunst may react.

Kyler Murray will be the No. 1 pick ... unless he’s not. Ed Oliver will be the third pick to the Jets, except they could take someone else. The Giants love Daniel Jones and could take him at 6, unless they wait until 17 and don’t take a quarterback at all.

Some years, the draft feels easy, with obvious landing spots for top...

Packers plan to pick up Kenny Clark’s fifth-year option

Though the Packers have not yet officially picked up defensive lineman Kenny Clark’s fifth-year option, general manager Brian Gutekunst says he would “expect that would happen.”

As of yet, the Green Bay Packers have not officially picked up the fifth-year option in defensive lineman Kenny Clark’s rookie contract. Still, the team gave its strongest indication that it will during general manager Brian Gutekunst’s Monday press conference.

“I would expect that to happen,” Gutekunst...

Packers to exercise DT Kenny Clark's option

The Packers intend to exercise the fifth-year option on Kenny Clark‘s contract, general manager Brian Gutekunst says (Twitter link via ESPN.com’s Rob Demovsky). The team technically has until the May 3 deadline to formally make the move. “He’s a dominant player on the defensive front,” Gutekunst said of the defensive tackle. Last year, Clark enjoyed a solid third pro season. The 23-year-old (24 in October) put up a career-high six sacks and matched his 2017 tackles total with 55....
