Looking Back at the 2011 Green Bay Packers Draft

Green Bay Packers 2011 NFL Draft

In 2010, after a solid draft by Ted Thompson that produced two immediate difference makers, the Packers won it all.

Bringing the Lombardi Trophy home after squeaking into the playoff as a six seed, the Packers were favored to win it all again after a great draft on paper. But unfortunately in this case, the paper does not decide a champion. A few different factors stepped in and this class is one of the more forgettable in recent memory. Without further ado, the 2011 Green Bay Draft.

Round 1 (32) – Derek Sherrod, OT. Mississippi State

BAP: Justin Houston, LB. Georgia

Green Bay didn’t have many holes, but depth along the offensive line was one of them. Chad Clifton had reached the end of his career, as did Mark Tauscher. Bryan Bulaga was exceptional in his role at RT, but the team wanted an athletic left tackle and Sherrod fell to them at 32. When the pick was made, it was seen as a steal and that he could be the next blindside protector for Aaron Rodgers. However, things never panned out as Sherrod struggled to adjust to the pro game after the lockout, and was forced into duty at right tackle after Bulaga go hurt late in the season. Playing right tackle against Kansas City, Sherrod’s career effectively ended after he suffered a severe broken leg that sidelined for almost two years. He came back briefly last year before being cut.

2005 Packers Draft Ten Years Later

Rodgers draft day

What a difference a decade makes.

Ten years ago I was only tangentially following the Green Bay Packers. I had a toddler under two, a full time career and my interest in the Pack got pushed to the back burner.

I remember being at work the night of the NFL Draft, and a colleague told me the Packers had drafted a quarterback from California. Why were the Packers drafting a QB was the first thing that went through my head. After all, the Packers had one of the best ever lining up behind center. Sure, Favre was starting to mention retirement here and there, but he still had a lot in the tank. And he certainly wasn’t intimating anything about taking his talents to South Beach or elsewhere.

Let me say that again: the Packers had Brett Favre. Why the hell did they just waste their first round pick on a back-up quarterback? Had Ted Thompson lost his mind? And the kid looked like he was 15 to boot, ready to head to prom and hardly ready to stake a claim to the Lombardi Trophy.

And I hated the stupid little soul patch, too.

Needless to say that night I called my grad student brother Jay who used to block off his schedule to watch and absorb that first day of the draft in all of its entirety. If anyone could talk me off the ledge, it would be Jay.

2015 NFL Draft: Packers Position Preview: CB

PJ Williams of the Florida State Seminoles

Last season the Green Bay Packers had the deepest CB corps in the NFL.  Sam Shields, Tramon Williams, and Davon House were all capable of starting outside.  Casey Hayward was the best slot corner in the league and Micah Hyde effectively bounced between safety and slot corner.  Jarrett Bush was a special teamer with experience in the dime and Demetri Goodson was the up and coming prospect who couldn’t get time on defense. My, how things have changed.

Tramon Williams and Davon House both left for deals on bad teams (Cleveland and Jacksonville) for much more money than it appeared they would get from the Packers.  Jarrett Bush remains unsigned.  The Packers now sit with Sam Shields as their only proven option outside.  Micah Hyde and Casey Hayward are both capable and versatile playmakers, but their ability to cover on the outside is in question.

The Packers are not without current prospects.  Goodson has basically told Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that he’s going to shut down the league. At 6’0″ Goodson has the length to be an outside corner.  His 4.5 40 and 37″ vertical adds to the promise.  Tay Glover-Wright is another size-speed project that spent last season on the Packers’ practice squad.  He’s even faster than Goodson but probably just as raw.

Class Strength: 6/10

Green Bay Packers 2015 Schedule Preview

The NFL announced that it will release its schedule at some point this week and it’s always like a holiday for NFL fans. In no other sport does a schedule release come with such anticipation with only 16 games and every game being of such importance.

Let’s first get a refresher of the Green Bay Packers’ opponents for the upcoming 2015 season:

Home: Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers

Away: Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders 

The NFL loves to try shove the parity narrative down your throat, which is kind of a fallacy. Sure, there are a few surprises and disappointments every year, but you can pretty much pencil in a handful of teams in the postseason every season and a handful of teams at who will be at the bottom. Those teams have been the same for a number of years now. So, you can have a pretty good idea of how hard your schedule is at this point, even though most people will say you can’t really evaluate it right now.

The Packers are going to have a pretty tough schedule this year. They play both the NFC and AFC West, which are both very strong divisions. Green Bay had it much easier last year playing the AFC East and the brutal NFC South. Fortunately, the Packers get Seattle and Kansas City at home to avoid those brutal road trips, but road games at Arizona and Denver will be extremely challenging. As a first place finisher they will have to play games against the other first place finishers in the NFC — Dallas and Carolina.
