PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Who’s Playing the Z?

The Packers, should they stay healthy, are in pretty great shape in the skill position area.  They now have a stable of capable running backs, including a potential star in Aaron Jones.  Davante Adams had a solid breakout season in 2017 and proved to be a talent independent of Rodgers’ greatness, succeeding with Brett Hundley […]

BREAKING: Green Bay Packers select Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa at 45

Analysis (Taylor O’Neill): Although the Green Bay Packers took Jaire Alexander in the first round, they must be ecstatic to see a player so often mocked to them at #14 available at #45 in the second round.
