Our undrafted free agents have more potential then our actual picks.

Taylor = Dillon
Samuels > Vernon
Galeai = Garvin
Barnes > Martin
Stewart > nobody lol
Johnson = Stepniak
Jones = Dugera

Honestly. Just take some time and look at their highlights/film. Does it not justify how bad our actual draft picks were?
Ok I'm done complaining about it.

You might not like the our draft but it was still better than the Bears. They still suck

Ravens move up power rankings for the addition of Patrick Queen. Packers drop in power rankings for choosing Jordan Love. Makes sense.

Sports Money researched the success rate of players picked by round. Only 30% became starters of the 1st round picks. 17.5% of the 2nd round etc.

Round Freq. Percent Cuml
1 178 29.9 29.9
2 104 17.5 47.4
3 75 12.6 60.0
4 64 10.8 70.8
5 38 6.4 77.2
6 29 4.9 82.0
7 25 4.2 86.2
Undrafted 81 13.6 99.8
Supplemental 1 0.2 100.0
Total 595 100
- Nearly 30% of all starters were 1st round draft picks when drafted into the league;

- Roughly 30% were taken in either the 2nd or 3rd round;

- Roughly 26% were taken in either rounds 4 through 7;

- Undrafted players (14%) were the 3rd most.

Saw this earlier - but have also some questions = top half of the draft versus the both half is one question. The other is what is the starter success in 2nd year after the draft both by position and by top half versus bottom half.

Bear,
Was this the rate of becoming a starter in the players’ 1st yr after being drafted or by 2nd yr, etc?

Depending on over what period of time they tracked players matters a lot. Starting doesn’t always = the same relative ability/success. Middle rounds tend to have picks of players who are taken to develop and then hopefully a few years later take over for an experienced player already on the roster. 1st round usually = needs to play this year. Also the UDFA starter rate is likely artificially elevated for a few reasons:

1) My guess is looking at the sample size numbers that they included only the UDFAs that were signed by a team, not the vast majority of UDFAs who have a one week tryout camp and then are not signed and never play professional football again. That skews the numbers drastically as those survivor UDFAs that made it already had to go through an evaluation process to stay, whereas 5-7th round picks are given a longer eval period of at least all training camp if not 1yr or more.

2) Some of the UDFAs may be from smaller colleges and are great players but got not as much scouting/ biased opinions of there abilities “as they did well with lesser known talent but how will they do in the NFL?” When they show at minicamp, the ones who are kept they may be better than a 6-7 round player from a power conference.

3) The UDFAs who a team keeps likely fulfill a need for depth at a position that is thin on a team. Their odds are increased to start for a few games when a player goes down with injury at a thin position group.

Maybe there are other reasons too but just some thoughts.

I just hate all of these rankings and evaluations of the draft that is done before the guy has even hit the OTA's. I would like to see the rankings of the success by team after year one and year 2 and year 3. I saw one that was done according to the GM's but it was ok but very complex. For example one can argue that TT had a good draft as a GM- but one can also argue that he was poor and a bad risk taker - Harrell, Perry , Sherrod, Datone Jones, - Dont give me an analysis until at least after year 2 - That being the case - we have a good chance that our 2019 picks do well from their snaps - initiation last year.

Everyone is is denial that this draft was horrendous and that this team will likely miss the playoffs as a result. I can absolutely guarantee that this team will not be in the Super Bowl or even the NFCCG. But y’all can Choose to still believe but I for one do not and will not sugar coat this circus. Say goobbye to any super bowl appearances in the near future

And all the cheerleaders still have their scapegoat handy..."Rodgers doesn't buy into the system" "Rodgers doesn't have it anymore". "Rodgers this Rodgers that"....what Rodgers doesn't have and didn't get is any decent help in this draft or last years either...pathetic...when this team falls flat all the Kool aid drinkers are sure to lay the blame on Rodgers not Gute or Boy wonder coach...

only a 3% chance of a team winning the SB in any year. Hardly a bold prediction.

Only time will tell how this draft turns out. Football should be a distraction from the crazy situation we are in. If you and your family are safe and healthy you already had a great draft. STAY SAFE !!!!!!!!!

The Gutekunst-LaFleur era may be trying to build a run-based team in the Shanahan mold. But Jordan Love does not fit that strategy. The wrongheaded Love pick does nothing to help the Packers win in this year and next after paying Rodgers $134 million to give the Packers another last shot at winning the Super Bowl under his leadership. NOT drafting an elite WR in rounds 1 or 2 undermines the ability of Rodgers to perform at his best with the kind of receiving corps that can get separation regularly and also give him a legitimate deep threat. Yes, yes, we are all Packers' fans and we have to love the team we have. But trotting out clichés does nothing to alter the sad reality that Gutekunst has made an objectively absurd decision by making a long shot bet on a future QB to succeed Rodgers rather than playing the odds by taking a WR in the first round who can help the team now. The future is now!

I can wait a year or two and see how Love develops. I also believe Love give us a better chance to win than Boyle if something happens to Rogers in the near future. Does that not improve our chance of winning in the next year or two?

Draft and Player Grades before they even play in the NFL is just silly talk.
In most of my mocks I had Dillon in the 3rd Runyon in 5th and Hanson in 6th.
So I Think It's going to be OK...sans the 4th rd...ugh.
Relax fans...let's see if football returns in August. If so, the real grades come in Jan 2021.
As for a WR...we have 3 new faces..give it time fans. GPG.
