2012 NFL Draft
As the 2012 NFL Draft is about to begin, here are some things that have been whispered into my ear as well as some of my own opinions and predictions.
Whisper: The Packers love Shea McClellin, but so do the Patriots, who pick just before them. If Ted HAS to have him, he’ll need to trade up in front of NE (unless Mercilus is there for New England, who is their first...

With the 28th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers select, Nick Perry, linebacker, USC.
This is a great pick for Green Bay as they gave up the most yards per game (411.6) and also tied for 27th in the NFL with 29 sacks. They also only had 11 sacks with four or fewer rushers in 2011, putting them 31st in the NFL.

According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Green Bay Packers have notified safety Nick Collins that he will be released.
Collins suffered a serious neck injury this past season and this might be a sign that the Packers aren’t very confident in him being able to continue his career.
Collins was scheduled to make $3.45 million in 2012 and $4.35 million for the 2013 season.
GREEN BAY, Wis. Nick Perry is not a prototypical defensive player. The former USC standout is a lot of things: fast, athletic, quick and big with a knack for bringing down opposing quarterbacks in college at an elite rate.
But it's the combination of those traits that makes Perry a difficult projection in the NFL.
When Perry was selected by the Green Bay Packers with the 28th...

The Green Bay Packers struck gold when they selected a Southern Cal linebacker Clay Matthews in the first round three years ago.
