Packers Calendar: NFL Combine Workouts Begin

Offensive linemen and tight ends will work out on Friday, televised on the NFL Network.

INDIANAPOLIS—It's Friday at the NFL Combine and by now, all of the players have arrived.

Defensive backs were the last group to report, and they'll take part in registration, orientation, medical pre-exams, x-rays and interviews.

The part that will get all the attention, however, is the main event—the workouts.

On Friday, the on-field work begins, at least the televised portion. On Thursday the specialists took to the field, although they aren't aired.

The rest of Group 1 hits the field at Lucas Oil Stadium on Friday, starting at 8:00 a.m. CT on the NFL Network.

Offensive linemen and tight ends will take part in all the measured drills—the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, shuttles, etc. They'll also participate in position-specific work.

The Green Bay Packers will be in attendance watching the players, taking notes and making observations.

During the evening hours, they'll also be interviewing prospects from every position group except the group that's working out today, whose time in Indianapolis will conclude.

Draft 0 offensive lineman. Resign Bulaga and protect Aaron with the best and deepest offensive line in packer history.

TE in the top 3 rounds is a must.

Jordy is great. Janis & Abbrederis will be great. Boykin and Adams are solid. I love cobb, but let him walk and sign Suh.

Suh addresses the Packers greatest weakness for years now. Sign Suh, sign Raji, sign House, draft MLBs, Superbowl.

2015 53-man Roster
QB: Rodgers, Flynn, 6thRounder
RB: Lacey, DuJuan, Starks, Raijon Neal
FB: Kuhn, 5thRounder
WR: Jordy, Janis, Abbrederis, Adams, Boykin, 7thRounder
TE: 3rdRounder, Quarless, Richard
OL: Bakhtiari, Sitton, Linsley, Lang, Bulaga, Barclay, Vujnovich, Tretter
DL: Suh, Raji, Daniels, Neal, Datone, Boyd, Pennel, Robinson
LB: Peppers, Matthews, Perry, 1stRounder, 4thRounder, Barrington, Jayrone Elliot, Adrian Hubbard
CB: Shields, House, Heyward, Hyde, Goodson
S: Burnett, 2ndRounder, Richardson, Dix
ST: Crosby, Masthay

Haha

1. Always draft linemen, offense and/or defense
2. I can live with cobb at $9 mil
3. Suh? not at his price (I like Carl Davis at #30)
4. agree with bringing Raji and House back

Also, I think Tolzien has more upside at this point than Flynn, and I'd be fine with letting DuJaun go in favor of Neal/late draft pick

7 things:
1) That is freaking hilarious.
2) If you are indeed serious, our cornerback depth is shit. If you need know, depth is basically backups. Our backups would suck.
3) A F**king 2nd rounder at safety? Seriously?? Maybe in the 6th or 5th, but 2nd?? And why the fakk is Dix lowest on the depth chart?
4) Why the hell shouldn't we draft another O-line man? Especially if we know we need interior depth! LOL, depth is a problem right now, and you saw draft no O-Line man.
5) I'm assuming you like white receivers or something. We still hold onto Boykin? Seriously? After he sucked balls? Abby and Janis barely saw the field, and you say they will be great? Don't get me wrong, they could be. But they haven't yet. Not even close. And get rid of Cobb and...
6) Sign Suh? Sign Mother-Effing Suh? Get out.
7) We aren't going to draft RBs? In this draft, which has so many good ones? Get the hell out.

This was a beautiful comment. Someone plate it with gold.

Ben, your 53 man roster is not outrageous ... BUT I think you are way overstating Janis/Abbrederis/Boykin. Janis and Boykin couldn't even get on the field last season. Might they progress, sure but it is far far from them being "great". Who knows what they've got in Abbrederis?

Suh would upgrade defense but offense would almost certainly be stepping backwards. You can make the case for that but don't overdue the optimism with the WR's.

How about looking ahead and signing Daniels and Heyward to affordable extensions before they become free agents next year?

Then probably not enough money for Suh.
