TED THOMPSON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Packers 2015 Draft Analysis: Ted Thompson Hits Another Home Run

Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson is pretty good at this whole drafting thing. In fact, he might be the best in the business when it comes to procuring talent from the annual NFL selection meeting (aka the NFL Draft). And despite some criticism about the Packers 2015 class, there are plenty of reasons to be excited about Green Bay’s incoming rookies and there are more...

Notebook: The Price Is Usually Right

General manager Ted Thompson’s uncanny ability to place a proper monetary value on a player is why Green Bay’s salary cap is in such terrific shape. In fact, you can make a strong argument that corner Sam Shields is the only vastly overpaid player on the roster. At $9.7 million a year, Shields is behind only Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson when it...

When Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson selected defensive backs Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins with his first two picks in the 2015 draft, fans began to immediately wonder if they were safeties or cornerbacks. Discussions quickly popped up that they would play cornerback. Then slot cornerback. Then back to safety. Then as hybrid cover players. And so on. So, which...

Ted Thompson Devalues Inside Linebackers

As Ron Wolf might say, Ted Thompson has never had an inside linebacker as “the girl with the curl”.  Personally, I would have liked to see the Packers select Eric Kendricks with their first round pick a couple weeks ago. Outside of that, I wouldn’t have minded seeing them pick Denzel Perryman or Stephone Anthony. Of course, my BPU must have been very different from general...

Why Does Ted Thompson Have May 12 Circled on His Calendar?

     What’s the Big Deal about May 12?    In the NFL business year, May 12, 2015 begins a new dynamic to consider for clubs that might sign unrestricted free agents from another team. Teams such as the Packers that are averse to signing free agents because they would affect their compensatory picks in the 2016 draft will now view those players in a much different light...

Cory’s Corner: Ted Thompson picks smart and clean guys

For all the hand-wringing over Ted Thompson’s draft picks this past weekend — and believe me there were plenty — there’s a lot to be thankful for. The thing that Packers fans can rely on with Thompson is that he’s consistent. He has a plan to pick intelligent players that keep their nose clean while understanding how important team ball is. This was one of the trickiest...

The day of the 2015 NFL Draft has finally arrived. That means if all goes to plan the Green Bay Packers will have an exciting new prospect on the roster by the end of the night. Unless Ted Thompson trades out of the first round altogether, which is something I think he would love to do. Yet, with the way the draft boards are stacking up, it will be very difficult. But the fact that...

Green Bay Packers: Ted Thompson’s draft wish list

He’s making a list, he’s checking it twice (an hour), but it’s not Christmas season, no, for Green Bay Packer’s general manager Ted Thompson, it’s draft season.

With the 2015 NFL Draft just around the corner, it is never too early to start looking at projections.  The draft has been where the Green Bay Packers have found success, as most of the players on their roster have only played for the Packers.  While the first round has either been hit or miss since Ted Thompson became the general manager, here are three players that I think would...
