1) Introduction: General manager Ted Thompson always seems to find hidden gems after the draft. And wide receiver Jarrett Boykin is certainly that. With a handful of starting-caliber wide receivers already on the roster, the undrafted rookie cracked the team’s 53-man roster after an impressive preseason. It’s easy to see why he wasn’t selected in the draft, as he ran a 4.72 forty at the combine, but Boykin certainly impressed the coaching staff enough in training camp to make the final roster. Oh yeah, and here’s a reminder that the Jacksonville Jaguars — yes, those Jaguars — cut Boykin on May 7, only to see him crack the Packers’ roster a few months later.

Donald Driver retires. Greg Jennings likely a goner. Those two facts have many feeling pretty uncertain about the success of the Packers' receiving corps in 2013.

Gil Brandt of NFL.com believes free agent cornerback/safety Charles Woodson may end up retiring after he realizes how small his value on the open market.

Packers Outside Linebackers: This is a group that had a lot of promise heading into 2o12 but after an injury to rookie Nick Perry and an underwhelming season from 2011 incumbent Erik Walden, there wasn’t nearly as much production as the defense needed nor wanted.

No quarterback in the league knew what it was like to get hit and go down in 2012 more than Aaron Rodgers. Yet the Packers still fielded a formidable offense. Our Matt Tevsh offers some illogical big-picture numbers on the league’s most sacked passer.
Jordy Nelson’s fantasy football value has experienced extreme amounts of turbulence over the past three seasons. He first burst onto the national scene in the 2010 playoffs, aiding the Green Bay Packers to a Super Bowl victory:
Although he may have set career highs in the 2010 regular season, which you can observe in the table below, it was hardly noteworthy. That subtle regular...
