Show where the Packers have shown interest in prospects in this thread. I'll be sure to update the first post actively whenever new information arrives. I remember putting a lot of information into the thread last year -- however the front post was never updated, I wanted to change that this year. Obviously a lot of players will get interviewed at the combine, but if we can string together multiple interest in a player, than we can put together players that the Packers seem to have some serious interest in.

Packers are going to interview Miami OL Orlando Franklin at the Combine.

It's an insane amount of work to keep the first post updated LXIX.

I suggest instead making a running list that somebody can copy and update ever couple of pages. That way more than just the OP can help out.

I kept a running list last year by position during the thread. Shouldn't be a problem. I'm a fast typer Wink

I talked to Cecil Shorts a month ago and he said that about 16 teams talked to him including the Green Bay Packers. Not sure if that counts.

He is a decent player but i feel he's too much of a body catcher. He does it an awful lot in his highlight videos.

Imo a good WR must have the knack of catching the ball with their hands rather than catching it on the chest.

Maybe the combine will change my opinion of him.

I remember last year that Morgan Burnett was very popular in mock drafts in this thread and for once alot of us were right on that. Does that count as a hit?

He's not the only one. TJ Lang was a regular in mocks. Jamarko Simmons was a regular in mocks.
