Just remember this about the draft: Special teams are 1/3 of the game and it's particularly noticeable when a team needs a boost in that area and it doesn't happen. So I think in rounds 4-7 the Pack needs its fair share of backups who can run, jump, block, tackle and understand what they need to be doing. Yeah, we all want tha tgadget little jitter bug who can run the sweep but maybe the better picks would be a 3rd-string halfback who can pickup the blitzing linebacker, or a safety who can make a consistent fair catch and save yards of field position. Remember Montgomery's fumble on a kickoff in LA in 2019 - that cost us the game and probably a trip to the SB. I hope the Pack can upgrade all the special units to Mason Crosby's level.

Speaking my language, BadgerFred! The Packers have some guys who are considered good, but, I question Ty Summers and some others currently on this roster.

Green Bay should have NO FEAR adding to STs this year, especially with new ST coach Mo Drayton calling the shots. I like it, and I expect they will add players who offer both positional and tested ST performance. The Packers always look for those versatile players who can contribute to both. Should be fun to see who they get.

Both our return game and our coverage units have been dog shit for years. Can't wait to see another TD return from our Packers PR or KR unit. I cannot recall the last.

BTW, there are some gem returners in this class.

Thank you Aaron for the chat. Always insightful.

I think there’s a simpler solution:

1. Never return punts.
2. Only return kicks that you have to.
3. Punt out of bounds....we’ll never have one returned against us.
4. Make your field goals. A missed FG is the same as a fumble.

Returns of a punt or a kick swinging the game are great, but they occur far less often than the turnovers, penalties, and injuries. Don’t give the bottom of your roster a chance to screw things up. Put your highly paid offensive stars on the field.
