Favre is probably about 6' 2" and Rodgers is about 6' 1" I believe.

Well, Morency is reportedly up to 220. Here's the story:

Players are always shorter than what they're listed and in some cases they weigh 10 less pounds than what they're listed as too

In basketball?? No they are not. Kids on my high school basketball team were listed as 6'5" 6'6" and i was taller than them. The same thing is done at almost every level of basketball. For instance MJ was not 6'6".

EDIT-NVM, I mistunderstood what you were trying to say. I said it wrong the first time. I just meant they list heights wrong and in Football they did it backwards for Favre.

So what's the deal with this Corey White guy? Likely to make the roster?

He's facing an uphill battle because Miree is likely a lock to make the roster because of his experience and there's no telling if the Packers will even take another fullback. If they do, he has to compete with Korey Hall who will likely make the roster just for his special teams contribution. I'll go ahead and say right now that White won't be on the roster.

With 5 RB/HB spots, White will have to just WOW in training camp. Barring injuries, Morency and Jackson are locks, Herron has the inside lane, and as TT doesn't like to toss his picks, Hall and Wynn have a better chance than the others of making the team. Miree was the starter last year, so he has the competitive edge. The FB and third HB spots are where you'll see the most competition, and it will be by guys not getting a lot of reps.

I can see he and Wynn on the practice squad. Which isn't a bad thing for a full back, he'd have a year to learn the offense without playing. If Wynn plays well in camp and game action he'll make the team because of his natural ability. He'd give us a beef back which we really don't have out of the other guys.

I really hope we can prove himself and stay on the team, I like his upside.

What about Arliss Beach? From what I remember of him last year, he was a hard runner throughout preseason that showed some burst. IIRC, he was placed on the DL, or IR, whatever the hell it is, mysteriously before the season started.

Here's how I see our RB/FB situation:

Locks:
Morency, Jackson

Close to a lock:
Miree

Battling for the last 2 spots:
Herron, White, Wynn, Hall

99% getting cut or not on roster:
Pope, Beach


So we have 2 RBs and 1 FB set up as locks to make the cut. All the rookies are gonna have to show a lot to make the cut, because there is little stability so Herron has a good chance to stay around another year or 2. Apparently he is a great worker and I like having him as a #3 but he has little upside.

Wynn has a good chance to get that last slot because (IMO he's talented and we could use someone with his style) but also because he can play FB and RB so we could essentially keep 4 RBs and 2 FBs with 5 players, big advantage. The coaches probably see him as a camp body though so he still has to impress people to make the team.

White is a wildcard, I don't think the coaches planned on him doing so well but if he keeps it up he'd probably make the roster over Hall who was drafted to play FB this year.

Pope and Beach are both fine RBs but they don't have much upside past a poor man's change of pace back, so I say they don't make the cut in such a crowded backfield with other players who have more potential.

My prediction:
Keep Morency Jackson Herron Miree White
The rest on the practice squad, Hall or Wynn might make the roster on the PUP or something.

I don't disagree that TT will stash some RBs on the PUP. Some might make the practice squad, but he has shown he uses the IR to store players he wants to take a much longer look at, like Kurt Campbell.

Packers rookie wide receiver James Jones is included on Dennis Dillon's 'All-Shorts Team' - or as Dillon describes it: "12 rookies who caught the attention of their teams" during recent minicamps.

Dillon's list at SportingNews.com says of Jones: "The third-round pick from San Jose State was quick and explosive in and out of his cuts, and he plucked every pass thrown his direction."


TT, I love you. He's greg Jennings number 2, just wait.

Let's not get excited too quick. Wait until defenders get up and him and play rough and then we'll see how he does. Everyone looks good in individual drills without pads.

James Jones is really starting to grow on me though. He seems to do all the little things right that rookies struggle with.
