Packers Practice Round-Up. Day 10. August 28, 2020

Friday's practice was moved inside due to rain.  Only Tier 2 reporters are allowed inside the Hutson Center, and they do not make as many tweets about individual play as some of the other reporters.  

GENERAL/PERSONNEL:

Practice No. 10 — and the first one indoors this summer — goes one hour and 51 minutes with the full squad, but the young players are again getting an extra 9-minute period. Demovsky  [That is one of the longer practices so far.  They were in pads.

Raven Greene, Kabion Ento, Randy Ramsey, and Montravius Adams are the non-PUP players not participating. Hodkiewicz

Nijmam back from PUP.  Getting some drill work.  Ramsey still out.  Silverstein.

Ento left Tuesday‘s practice at Lambeau Field with a broken bone in his foot, per source. He had surgery Wednesday. Timetable for his return is unknown. Wood

Packers worked out five DBs and a TE today: CB Lorenzo Doss (former Broncos fifth-round pick in 2015). CB Dee Delaney (Miami). CB Rojesterman Farris (Hawaii). CB Ashton Lampkin (Oklahoma St.) S Innis Gaines (TCU). TE Matthew Wilkerson (Edward Waters Fla. College). Demovsky.

Rick Wagner is back at practice with a left elbow support. Owczarski

Za’Darius Smith and Treyvon Hester both getting medical attention now. Demovsky [Smith returned to practice.  I didn't see any information on Hester, but tweets were sparse today.]

QUARTERBACKS/WIDE RECEIVERS:

Nice one handed snag by MVS at the end of crossing route. He’s had a few nice catches today. Hodkiewicz

Tim Boyle converts second and 15 with two nice throws, including a perfectly timed ball to ESB for 10. Hit Kumerow for 1st down with a blitzer in his face on the next play. Silverstein

Nice ball from Love to Turner on an out to begin his team period. Hodkiewicz

Jordan Love just made perhaps his best throw of camp. Deep corner route to Malik Turner in a perfect spot on the sideline. But then came back and fired one — at least he fired it — behind Reggie Begelton on an in breaker. Demovsky [First play is same as tweet above.]

TIGHT ENDS:

RUNNING BACKS:

OFFENSIVE LINE:

G Elgton Jenkins Pick’s up Z. Smith blitz and allow Rodgers to throw deep to open Allen Lazard. Silverstein

Za ‘Darius Smith in prime pass rushing form in 1 on 1s. Blew away Billy Turner on one rush and Lucas Patrick on another. Silverstein [So, Jenkins gets the job done, but not Turner and Patrick.]

Lane Taylor keeps doing Lane Taylor things.  Hodkiewicz [In 1x1s apparently, Taylor was solid, again.]

It would seem Lane Taylor (still unbeaten in 1-on-1s) has played his way back into a starting guard job but do they have a capable RT?  Demovsky

As far as young guys in the drill, guards Zack Johnson and Cody Conway had some solid reps. LT Alex Light remains  inconsistent. Silverstein

No reps for Ricky Wagner in 1x1s as he works his way back.  Demovsky

DEFENSIVE LINE:

LINEBACKERS:

ZaDarius Smith can rush from anywhere man. Jonathan Garvin has two nice rushes as well in 1 on 1s. Hodkiewicz

Rashan Gary just pulled out the ole hump move for one of the prettier rushes of one on ones this camp. Hodkiewicz

Looks Za'Darius Smith is back on form. Won all three of his 1-on-1 pass rush reps (once against Turner on the edge and twice against Patrick inside). Also, Rashan Gary with the old Reggie White hump move against Leglue. Demovsky

DEFENSIVE BACKS:

Josh Jackson with another PBU. No refs this year but seems to be doing a better job anticipating when the ball is arriving. Hodkiewicz

In second and long drill, Adrian Amos with a perfectly timed blitz that would have sacked Rodgers. Silverstein

SPECIAL TEAMS:

Crosby finishes off 2-minute with a 48-yard FG at the buzzer after Rodgers hits 2 of 4 for 27 yards to get in position. 2. Crosby off today. Just 5 of 8 inside the Hutson Center [in drills]. Silverstein

Rodgers hits Lazard in middle of field and offense clocks it with 1 second left. Crosby hits the 43 yarder to end 55-second (two-minute) period with no time outs. Hodkiewicz

I chose to use a photo of Lane Taylor because if Demovsky is correct, Taylor coming back to win a job at RG would be the biggest news. Zadarius is still good. Gary had a nice move. MVS had some nice catches, but there were no descriptions.

I gather that Turner has been playing a lot at RT since Wagner has been out since August 20. I don't know how many reps Turner took at RG or if Demovsky believes that Taylor has outplayed Turner at RG or if he thinks Taylor just looks like a starting-quality RG. Note that Andy Herman has been impressed with Turner's work at RT.

Cut downs are a week from tomorrow. Not sure how many more practices there are.

Not hearing much about the other D-Lineman in practice... How is D Lowry looking any improvement from him...?

Good question. Unfortunately your question may actually be our answer. Not much to say.

Lowry and Keke get the occasional approving tweet, and Clark gets quite a few as well (but I omit tweets about Clark since we know about him). Nothing good about Lancaster, and nothing about anyone else. There is less opportunity for DL to shine since that requires hitting, which in the modern NFL is limited in TC.

Looking more and more that the smart move was to hang unto Taylor to see how the right side of OL would shake out. Everything I’ve read seems to indicate Taylor outplaying both Turner and Wagner. The fact Wagner has an injury already isn’t a good sign either. I’m wondering how the RT spot will play out? Taylor will get the job done at RG I do believe; not that confident what they decide at RT. That could be a problem.

I share the concerns about RT. That brings the hidden value that the TE group can provide. We know Marcedes Lewis can be effective chipping a DE to allow the RT a chance to set himself to control a rep. Can Deguara and/or Sternberger do it? Can they chip and leak out to a route or a 2nd level defender? Those are not flashy thigs that earn Pro Bowls. But they help earn yards and points.

Hi, Hank. Tonyan has gotten some mentions for his blocking both in pass pro and on run blocking assignments. That's why Tonyan's photo appears at the top of a previous Practice Roundup. I don't recall any negative tweets about Tonyan's blocking. Lewis of course gets the occasional favorable blocking tweet as well.

Not Sternberger so much. That may be a function of what they are asking him to do. He was better than expected as a blocker last season. If he is going to be the number one TE receiving threat, best to get him in sync with AR.

Deguara: I'd have to do a tally, but there have been good tweets about him as a blocker, but I think there's been some where they noted that ZaDarius or Gary won against him. Most of Deguara's blocking assignments are likely to come as move blocks and not from an inline position.

Almost nothing on Baylis. I remember one tweet but not what it was about or even if it was favorable or unfavorable.

FWIW Sternberger I thought at least was surprisingly effective as a lead blocker when he returned last season. Didnt seem at all hesistant to throw his body into someone.

Looks to me like the Packers also think they are thin at CB, since they worked out no less than five CBs. Might have Tramon on speed dial, and/or some other vet CB out there. Actually, there are quite a few vet CBs on the street, some of whom are probably serviceable.

I appreciate comments like yours and note that others also take a minute to respond. It takes two hours for me to do the roundup. I sometimes run into time problems, especially when the details came out about Clark's deal (usually I have to do some research to fact check the cap articles that I write so the Clark article took about 3.5 hours to write) and there was a practice as well.

I thank the gods that I only have to write an article when something happens or if I find something interesting.

Is there any interest is doing a Weekly Pick 'Em this year?

Dude, thanks for all the work you put in.
My two cents on weekly Puck'em is wait and see. Too many variables for you to put much work in and then scrape it.

And alot of you laughed at me when I said Turner was going to end up being the RT when they signed Wagner. I never for one second thought the Packers would seriously toss Ricky Wagner out there to protect Rodgers, when all he ever did was get Stafford killed. And I dont think Turner is only there because Wagners hurt, Turner is there because hes the better tackle. Not sure why they didnt just re sign Veldheer.

$$$$$$$ is the answer.

With Ento breaking his foot, Tramon (or someone like him - there are quite a few CB vets available) is on speed dial as well. I could do a poll as to which position Gute should call. Both is not a reasonable possibility.
