There Are A Lot Of Unknowns About New Green Bay Packers Head - Sport

Matt LaFleur and they won’t become known until just under a year from now when he finishes his first season.What is known about him Mike Daniels Jersey , judging by the amount of people close to LaFleur who went on record with reporters over the last week, is that he is by all accounts a high quality human being.The term “Packer People” that was coined during the early stages of Mike McCarthy’s tenure was often mocked but it’s something the organization has taken very seriously. Character matters and the Packers want to win the right way.LaFleur checks all the marks according to those closest to him and those who worked him during his ascension to Packers head coach. From a graduate assistant to his time with Kyle Shanahan and Sean McVay in Atlanta and Los Angeles respectively, LaFleur has gone about his business the right way and that will win him many fans in Green Bay.You can read more on LaFleur’s rise to the throne in Titletown plus why fans should be excited about the offensive concepts LaFleur will bring to the Packers in today’s cheese curds.’Damn, that’s a nice jump’: How Matt LaFleur went from Ashland to NFL—ESPNThere are a lot of people willing to go on record to praise LaFleur and not just as a coach but also as a person. Whatever the on-field results may bring, the rookie head coach seems like a phenomenal guy whose personality should mesh well with Green Bay and the state of Wisconsin at large.Keeping Packers QB Aaron Rodgers ‘clean’ puts focus on pass protection—PackersNews.comA key component of LaFleur’s offensive system is pass protection and given how many hits Aaron Rodgers took the past few seasons, this will be welcome news to the quarterback. A new offensive line coach will likely be beneficial as well.Context matters when evaluating new Packers OC Nathaniel Hackett—Packers WireDon’t let Hackett’s firing in November distract you from the fact he’s gotten a lot of play out of some rather bad quarterbacks: Blake Bortles, Kyle Orton and EJ Manuel to just name a few. Now Hackett gets Rodgers to work with which is like going from a jalopy to a Corvette. The Rock Report: Cutting Edge—Packers.comFans wanted innovation on offense with a modern approach to scheming? Their wish has been granted.Stowaway bird takes business class on 14-hour flight—UPIThis kind of takes “flying is for the birds” to a whole new level. Green Bay initially looked to be well out of the Florida State safety’s range at pick 14 last year Brett Favre Jersey , but ultimately passed on him after a draft-day slide."In the month leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers were predicted to be on the lookout for defensive help. With Morgan Burnett on the way out, the Packers especially appeared to be a great landing spot for safety Derwin James. The only problem was that James was anticipated to go as high as the seventh overall pick to Tampa Bay and the Packers owned the 14th pick. Likewise, Virginia Tech linebacker Tremaine Edmunds was thought to be a target as high as the fifth overall slot to Denver. Edmunds, an athletic, versatile front-seven player who couldplay any linebacker position and rush off the edge figured to be long gone by the time the Packers were on the clock.In the aftermath of the first round, James was drafted with the 17th pick by the Los Angeles Chargers and Edmunds with the 16th pick by the Buffalo Bills. Green Bay passed on both defensive talents to trade down and accumulate a 2019 first-rounder while selectingcornerback Jaire Alexander.With last year’s tumbles in mind Paul Hornung Jersey , here are a few 2019 NFL Draft prospects who could be available to Green Bay at the 12th pick despite often being mocked much higher.Ed OliverThe Houston product has been listed all over the place in mock drafts, but many recent ones have Oliver rising up to Tampa Bay’s fifth pick. On the shorter side at 6’2, Oliver is still an extremely athletic defensive lineman capable of playing all along the line and, as some have hypothesized, inside linebacker. Oliver could be one heck of a chess piece for many NFL teams, but any run on quarterbacks and edge rushers could potentially drop him down the board.If the Packers can land Oliver at pick 12, it would be a home run. However Bart Starr Jersey , it does not look likely at this point.Montez SweatThe majority of mocks have Sweat firmly inside the top 10 after a rare NFL Combine performance. But could a heart condition, considered to be minor, help Sweat slide to Green Bay?The long, lanky edge rusher from Mississippi State ran an incredible 4.41 forty-yard dash at 260 pounds and had a high level of production in the SEC to back up the testing measurables. Sweat could be a fit for Jacksonville, Detroit, or Buffalo at picks seven through nine. But if he sneaks through that stretch, Denver (who drafted Bradley Chubb last year) and Cincinnati would appear to be prime fits for a quarterback. It would be a no-brainer choice for Green Bay if Sweat is still available.Josh AllenYou would have to search high and low for a mock draft that does not have Allen listed inside the top 10 picks Ray Nitschke Jersey , much less the top five. Although Allen tested well at the Combine and put together an incredible 2018 campaign at Kentucky, is it possible that organizations could prefer other pass rushers more? Sweat and Brian Burns’ speed and athleticism, Rashan Gary’s potential and versatility, and Oliver’s Aaron Donald-like similarities could vault each of those players into the first 10 picks. That does not count Nick Bosa, who is almost assuredly going to be taken in the first three selections.It has been a foregone conclusion for quite some time that Allen is one of the draft’s premier edge rushers. But what if the pecking order is not as set in stone as thought?Dwayne HaskinsGreen Bay will not be the destination for Haskins, but there is an outside chance he is available with the 12th pick and the Packers can auction off that selection to the highest bidder.For Haskins to drop, it would take a combination of scenarios. At minimum Dave Robinson Jersey , Kyler Murray and Drew Lock would have likely already been drafted at the quarterback position and valued more than Haskins. Many top defensive players would have to be chosen early, notably the pass rushers, and a wildcard like D.K. Metcalf or T.J. Hockenson needs to enter the top 10.In all likelihood, the availability of Haskins would not be a good thing for Green Bay and trading down might be the best option. But the annual run on quarterbacks, especially in a down year for signal callers, might have many people simply assuming that Haskins will be a top-10 selection.
