Tuesday Curds: Gutekunst is ready for his first NFL Draft as Packers GM

With his mentor in the room with him this weekend, the new Packers GM hopes to stay calm over a stressful few days.

For essentially all of his adult life, Brian Gutekunst has been relaying information to other people, who would process his material and use it to inform their decisions.

Now, he’s the one making the final call.

If Gutekunst is intimidated by that new role, however, he isn’t showing it. In a press conference on Monday, just days before the 2018 NFL Draft, Gutekunst...

Packers EDGE Draft Board Projection: Athletic prospects can be found in any round this year

If the Packers elect not to take a pass-rusher in round one, don’t be too discouraged — there should be plenty of intriguing athletes available through the end of day three and beyond.

As we continue our look at the Green Bay Packers’ possible board for the 2018 NFL Draft, we shift our attention over to edge rushers, one of the team’s biggest needs. The Packers, luckily, will find players who fit their recent trends available at all levels of this year’s draft.

The typical...

APC Mock Draft 2018: Round two begins with a run on receivers and corners

In the first ten picks of our second-round mock, five are either pass-catchers or cover men.

Today, we at Acme Packing Company resume our 2018 mock draft, picking up where we left off with the start of the second round. This round sets up pretty well for the Packers, who hold the 45th pick, as several intriguing cornerback and wide receiver options remain on the board.

However, a few of them disappeared quickly to start round two, with five of the first six picks of the round playing one of...

Monday Curds: What positions are worth trading up for in the NFL Draft?

The Packers have some ammunition to go and get the player they want, so what position should they be focusing on?

The Green Bay Packers currently sit with the 14th pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and 12 selections overall. That group of picks, if used shrewdly, could net them an upgrade in round one, perhaps as high as the fifth pick.

It’s difficult to predict what new general manager Brian Gutekunst might do in round one, but it’s worth considering some of the scenarios in play at present....

Defense Still Early Draft Focus for Packers

We're just days away from the start of the 2018 NFL draft and the Packers are in a spot they haven't been in nearly a decade.  They currently hold the 14th pick in the first round. With the number of quarterbacks that are being projected and mocked ahead of the Packers, there stands a chance that one of the elite non-quarterback players will be on the board when Green Bay's turn comes. There will be movement and trades in this draft.  You can bank on it.  The current order will get blown...

Filling the holes: Green Bay Packers draft analysis

The draft is almost here and the excitement is slowly building to a crescendo. If you have not done so already check out my last article on why the Green Bay Packers should prioritize drafting offensive lineman for the draft. One part I did not exactly specific is where they should focus on building the line. Lane Taylor and David Bakhtari are the veterans who solidify the left side of the line. Center is also well taken up with Corey Linsley, which even though he struggled last year, is...

King apparently was watching Friday’s Bucks-Celtics game at BMO Harris Bradley Center, where Patrick and boyfriend Aaron Rodgers were spotted. That resulted in King posting the following tweet during the game, in which he attempted to shoot his shot at...
