Didn't Nick Collins have like an 8 on the wonderlick though?

As for breakout, I think a WR does well. Whether that is a draft pick or Boykin continuing with his mid season good play. I also think next season reveals the true Datone Jones, good or bad.

if Heyward can stay healthy i think he can really help us but whoever we bring in to play FS is probably going to look like Collins to us.

Jonathan Franklin.

A forgotten man in the backfield after his struggles as a rookie and subsequent injury, and his fine performance against Cincinnati where he was literally the last RB available was overshadowed by his ill-timed fumble. But running backs of his size often train for speed to the exclusion of everything else for draft season (since you see an RB his size that doesn't run well in shorts, and you conclude he's useless) and so often end up sacrificing everything on the altar of putting in that good time in Cinci. A lot of these smaller RB types need an offseason in an NFL S&C program to really run with an appropriate amount of power.

Not saying Franklin's Rice, but look at Ray Rice's jump from his rookie to his second year to see how this sort of thing can play out.

I'd have to go with Nick Perry if he can stay healthy..

He has 7 sacks and 4 FFs in 11 starts in his career (That was a sack fumble vs. IND not a roughing the passer).

Extrapolate that to 16 games and with a little inprovement he could have one heck of a year. Double digit sacks is a reasonable expectation if that is the case, IMO.

I'm going to go with Jonathan Franklin. Apparently, the reason he didn't see much action is because he fumbled the ball all the time in practice. I think if he fixes that, he'll be just as big a threat as Lacy. Except I think Franklin is actually more likely to break a long run than Lacy. Franklin might get more 2-3 yard gains as opposed to 4-5 yards, but I think he's more likely to get a 30 or 40 yard gain than Lacy is.

And twice in game time situations at critical times. I do like him long term though.

Bahk.

Give him a full offseason in a pro weight room, and I think his gains are going to be enormous. Bulaga stays right, and our line is all but set.

Datone Jones and Josh Boyd.


Bostick got his shot but didn't do much with it IMO. Not sure if he has what it takes on a mental level.

Lot of names here so far. Here's three more:

DuJuan Harris - I personally believe Harris will have more to offer than Franklin next season assuming his knee is 100%. Makes Starks replaceable which is a bummer because he finally put together a nice season)

Jerel Worthy - Our DL would benefit so much if Worthy came back next season and really performed up to his potential. I think gong into the offseason healthy with some potential job openings up for grab might be what he needs.

Derek Sherrod - Total wildcard but has the tools to be the best tackle on this team. Would love to see him start clicking.


If we can be blessed with some good health next season I believe our early round draft picks from the last four years can really come together as a solid core unit around Rodgers.

I think it will be Tretter if EDS walks. I look for Barrington to make a big push in camp as well. I think you guys are right on the money with Boyd, Jones, Bostick in terms of what they gave the Packers this year and could give next year if healthy. Harris and Hayward should be a HUGE get back from injury as well.
