Packers GM Ted Thompson has plenty of directions he could go in the 2013 NFL draft.
The Packers lost to the 49ers in the NFL playoffs. Badly. Embarrasingly. Frustratingly. Think of some other negative adverbs and they would probably also apply.
But in the fast-paced world of the NFL, that loss is already ancient history. We’ve dissected it to death on this site and other media outlets and blogs have done the same. It’s time to move on.
In the coming weeks, the ALLGBP.com staff will have complete reviews and grades of everyone on the Packers roster for the 2012-13 season. We will also begin breaking down prospects in the the April NFL draft that may fit the Packers needs.
This post is meant to start the discussion on what the Packers needs in the draft may be.
If everything was equal, what position group should the Packers focus on when they pick 26th in the upcoming draft? If there was at least one player from each position group on the board when Ted Thompson’s turn came up, and th...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers knows he won't be appearing on Super Bowl lead-in coverage this season as he did a year ago. After all, this year's Super Bowl is on CBS, the network responsible for the "60 Minutes" piece that Rodgers took offense to earlier this season.
"I can say I won't be working for CBS," Rodgers said on his ESPN Wisconsin radio...
According to Dan Pompei of the National Football Post, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings may not get the kind of money he’s looking for once he becomes a free agent this offseason.
Greg Jennings is a really fine wide receiver, but he may be in for a little bit of a rude awakening on the free agent market. According to a couple of front office men I spoke with, teams...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Five months after undergoing surgery to repair his torn right hamstring, Packers inside linebacker Desmond Bishop is nearly back to full health.
"I'm feeling really good right now," Bishop said last week. "The main thing I'm lacking is my strength and my strength is coming back real fine. I'm excited about it."
There are no physical...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila and Chris Jacke are the headliners of the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame 2013 class.
Gbaja-Biamila played all nine of his NFL seasons with the Packers, accumulating a franchise-record 74.5 sacks along the way. After playing only seven games as a rookie, the team's 2000 fifth-round pick then began a streak of having at least 10 sacks for...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers will be watching the Super Bowl from home for the second consecutive year, but the Packers' MVP quarterback once again proved that star NFL players can be known for more than just their on-field success.
Rodgers is very involved with the MACC (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer) Fund, frequently participating in many aspects of the foundation...
Green Bay Packers guard Josh Sitton has been added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster. Sitton was an alternate at guard, and he was named to the team on Sunday, replacing San Francisco starting guard Mike Iupati after the 49ers advanced to the Super Bowl.
Sitton has been an alternate in the past, but this is his first Pro Bowl selection. The Packers coaching staff is coaching the NFC squad...
Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee writes that Packers C Jeff Saturday is “likely to retire.”
Saturday, 37, was signed as a stop gap for the Packers after they lost Scott Wells during free agency, but he was ultimately benched in favor of Evan Dietrich-Smith. Green Bay reportedly sees Dietrich-Smith as a long-term option at center, but GM Ted Thompson was seen speaking with Oregon...
At 6’4 and 325 pounds, Johnny Jolly looked and played like a 3-4 defensive end
Johnny Jolly hasn’t played a game for the Packers since January 2010, but his absence on the D-line is still being felt. That’s because GM Ted Thompson hasn’t drafted or signed a legitimate 3-4 end in the past three offseasons. To be fair, he did draft Lawrence Guy in 2011 and he did sign Phillip...
GREEN BAY, Wis. As a former NFL kicker watching a current one, new Packers Hall of Fame inductee Chris Jacke could tell what was wrong with Mason Crosby this season.
When Crosby's struggles wore on, especially during a midseason stretch in which he missed five of his nine field goals, Jacke could tell something had changed.
"I firmly believe with him it was mental,"...
We look back at the season with our featured performer, depth chart, unit grade and look ahead to 2013. Clay Matthews had a dominant season, even while missing four games. Even though the other outside linebackers combined for nine sacks, the Packers need someone to emerge as a consistent sidekick.
