Kumerow not so surprising, hasn't done much "trust" or no. The Pack bringing in multiple FA WR tells me the final WR likely not on the roster.

Tim Williams- THAT is a surprise. Thought they liked him as the #4 OLB.

Dexter, Guess they re hoping he makes it through to the PS.

I would opine that the plan is to throw to the RBs and TEs and Adams. The other WRs are blockers or decoys on 90% of the snaps. They all are big and cheap and are functionally FBs.....a few touches, but mostly they’re on the field to block.

Yeah. We’re expecting our WR to block a smaller, lighter dude so that if our RB gets to the secondary he has a better chance of a long run.

He’s not being asked to plow through linebackers.

But, his primary function, just like the FBs of yesteryear, is mostly as a blocker. Yes, he’ll get some targets but mostly he tries to create holes for others.

Well that would be comparing pass blocking to run blocking which hardly makes any sense.........hardly the same technique....WRs are blocking DBs in the run game and the screen game. So are FBs and HBs, they are also chipping rushers....We are not suggesting EQ is having to master a kick step to seal off an edge rusher the way a Tackle would......that is a ridiculous comparison and demonstrates your lack of knowledge of the game....blocking and tackling are the two most undervalued pieces for fans, they simply don't understand it, or leverage

Yes, that would be like comparing pass blocking to run blocking, wouldn't it? We don't see many WRs making pass blocking sets, do we? But we do see that from FBs, don't we?

And now you get why I lol'ed at the notion that WRs are functionally like FBs. It only took making an equally ridiculous comparison in the other direction.

That’s really weak logic.

FBs, on run plays, were lead blockers.
On passes, they picked up blitzes and/or released into the open. Occasionally, they caught a ball. Henderson had over 50 one year, if I recall.

Lazard, for example, is a blocker on runs. On pass plays, he’s a decoy/downfield blocker. If we throw 35 passes in a game, 10 will go to Adams. He’s our best, highest paid WR. Next, our RBs will get thrown to about 10 times per game. Then about another 8-10 to the TE.

What is left goes to Lazard/MSV/EQ. That’s about 5-8 total targets for the group.

Functionally, they’re fullbacks.

My initial 53 had 4 WR to allow for a space until the Packers put Kamal Martin on IR, but I was guessing that they'd bring back a 5th WR. I didn't see other teams picking up more than 4 of our WRs. But you raise a good point: conceivably the Packers could go with 4 WR for some games with all the TEs and RBs that are receiving options.

And, like you, I had 10 OL. I kinda think the Packers will go with 6 CBs; I think they'll go with the 5 you list plus someone else, unless they're not excited about a 6th guy or feel real good about Redmond at CB if needed.

I've been expecting this all along on offense. I even think we could still see Marcades cut if the blocking job can be filled by committee (Dillon and Dequara could take on that role and still be good dump down receivers).

I have also thought they would do so on D as well, keeping the best athletes regardless of position for the DL and LB positions (many of those guys move around a lot already and size ratios are becoming as obsolete in the NFL as the NBA).

Still not sure how this all shakes out yet, but most of my dream cuts are coming true and I do think they are putting together a talented roster that is closer to my projections than any fan sites' projections.

Of course they'll use TE and RB more in the passing game. Why would you have thought otherwise? LaFleur offense is RB and TE centric.

Ive been Been saying all offseason they would only keep 5 WR for that very reason, r is too few. Just need the TE to step to the plate.

Malik Taylor has that. Don’t think he makes it though.

Post script. Apparently he has made it!

“At his pro day, Taylor ran the 40-yard dash in under 4.5 seconds, hit 36″ in the vertical and 10-6 in the broad jump, did 11 reps on the bench press and finished the three-cone drill in 6.81 seconds and the short shuttle in 4.02.” USAtoday. He has an 8.32 RAS score.

A D2 player, Ferris State, who missed almost all of his last year with a hamstring injury. Per http://si.com “”We really like Malik Taylor,” general manager Brian Gutekunst said after not selecting a receiver in this year’s draft.”

Athleticism aplenty, hints from Gute and he was tipped for a spot a couple of days ago by the JournalSentinel, yet nowhere near the attention as Shepherd from those that I read in terms of performance in camp. Perhaps everyone overlooked him?

Provides another perimeter type. Seems they preferred him to Bagelton and Shepherd, which may mean Ervin is a real slot option and went for outside depth.

Draft scout shows him at 4.46 with a low of 4.36 and a high of 4.56. I didn’t see 4.36 on his highlight reel, but 4.46 is certainly fast enough, especially with his athleticism. Good luck young man you have beaten the odds big time!

I saw the 4.3 time, took it out because it’s a huge variance and others had numbers much close to 4.4. I have seen other reference to the 4.3s but I’m not sure how official, also a reference to a poor start on the slow run. Like you, I thought 4.4 seemed enough to make the point.

PS material? Less experience in the system. Could be an example where the difference was the lack of a normal preseason. Hollman looked as good last year as Samuels has shown this year though.

As to the order, maybe Gute likes to get the ones he wants back in early and sell the PS opportunity. It makes some sense. May be some moves to IR coming tomorrow, such as Martin opening a roster spot immediately.

Big takeaways so far

1) Obviously the most important factor is keep your best players (those who can most help your team be well rounded)

After that
2) This year more than ever BG seems to be trying to optimize keeping as many quality players as possible for replacements (ie if a WR or Lovett has a higher chance of making the PS then send them down and keep extra players at other positions on the 53 that might not make it through waivers).

3) suspicion that they are going to try to keep a lot of big guys (OL/DL). 10 OL to keep guys for the future. 5DL (with Hester the 5th then goes to IR) if another DL from another team’s cuts is added. Or even an outside chance at 6 DL with BOTH Hester and M. Adams on the initial 53 and one or both going to IR immediately.

4) I think they calculate correctly that all (if not most) of the WRs cut could make it to the PS. So why not only keep 5WRs (including Ervin). Opens spaces for other positions to keep. Rebalance later midseason as necessary

5) ? Maybe 2 pickups from other teams cuts. ? DL, ILB

6) Redmond, Garvin, Boyle, and Holman make 53

The next 24 hrs are BG “the great waiver cupboard procurer’s” time to shine (one of his and his scouts best attributes, IMO)

(Posted as of the Barnes cut being the last announced so far)

Kumerow didn’t have a great camp, is older and couldn’t get meaningful time last year when it was there for grabs. Bagelton has had no games, Shepherd is a novice, Turner perhaps, but none stood out except Shepherd, and he will likely make a PS if asked. It maybe that they really see Ervin in the slot. Expect Shepherd and Bagelton, maybe Turner to get PS invites. Not sure we get a WR in unless they doubt EQ, in which case, likely a vet with more quickness than Kumerow.

Yup. You have 5 skill position players to help the QB move the ball and score points.

Adams and Jones, obviously, are pretty good. They were our two leading receivers last year. Jones and Williams, combined had over 90 receptions. And now you add Dillon. Between Adams and the RBs, that’s where the ball is going to go over 60% of the time. The other 20 plays are divided up among everybody else. That’s our offense.

Maybe one where they think the person cut is least likely to be picked up. I doubt OLB. Could be CB, WR if internal, ILB, OT (Veldheer) or DL if outside and perhaps a vet WR, though I think less likely than some seem to.

That said, Gute has been more willing than most to scour the street for anyone that he believes will be an upgrade at any position. Could be an early cut from the roster as well if the right guy falls.

Al, thanks for the info on the expanded squad. I've been asking around here and other sites if the rules had changed beyond simply expanding it.
It's a weird adjustment to see that the 6 additional also don't have an experience limit (which was something like being active for 6 games or more in the first season, or 9 or more across the first two seasons).

I now see that we may be able to keep some guys on the PS who should not be eligible (Dexter and Darius among them I think).

I think the age of COVID might just make guys want to stick with the teams that brungem as well.

Yup, it's the main reason Green Bay restricted press coverage. Get rid of the video, so the other clubs won't have visuals on their guys. (example: D2 player Taylor who missed his senior year)

I think that you are right about him and some they want on the PS.

Hey Al,
Thanks for the info. I'm probably like most Packer fans and did pull for Kumerow, but I do understand the logic in letting him go.

However, the one guy that was cut that I hoped would make the 53 is Lovett. I like everything I've read about him and think he would be excellent in the locker room and a contributor on the field in this offense. I also like his potential for the special teams units. A smart player who will get the most out of his natural ability.

I, unlike most Packer fans, didn't get all giddy about a UW-W player ever being much of an NFL player. He had been cut by 3 or 4 other teams prior to the Packers, been on PS squads and hadn't developed into a viable NFL WR after all of that and by the age of 27 or 28. I mean really, what was the point. At that point, he was what he was and wasn't getting better.

Al... you should know this... the turk is not Gutey, the GM who makes the decisions. The turk is the guy who delivers bad news and tells the players in person to go see the coach and bring his playbook.

Diappointed.

Of course, but who the hell knows who that guy is? So Gutey gets the credit!

And there's a reason whoever gets the job dresses as the grim reaper: no one wants anyone else to know who was the Turk!

Pettine with eye shadow dressed in a black robe would make a great grim reaper.

No we don't know and that's on purpose. Hell it may change from one guy to someone else the next. Either way "the Turk" isn't Gutey. It's whomever delivers the bad news. It's not correct to pin it on Gutey.
