Some NFL draft Shelley Matt Miller the a Bleacher Report now joining us the NFL draft lead writer for the Bleacher Report today and Matt first of all gonna see it are talking again man gonna see a Super Bowl to. There are no riddle what. Or. Or. Quote. Never get there are much the Green Bay Packers have some major holes they have been pass rush they need to album. In my opinion if you're gonna put claimant he's on the inside to wash Julius Peppers you have to make up for the loss of a pass rush on the outside. With with Clay Matthews they need pass rush defensive help they probably need another another corner how deep is this draft in those areas. Really deep that's the goodness this into a draft that line up very well need the Green Bay Packers you know you mentioned that third quarter. It is indeed position if you wanted to go corner around along. No late round wanna between nine. You probably look at a guy like maybe Quincy Wilson. Where I've maybe Evan king from Washington tribute sort knowledge you portray technically Clemson in the delight big guy like that your core class. If not probably 510 guys like diesel six Los. 200 pounder with four forced beat you the degree Europe for that edge rusher is that right now they're kind of the second tier that rushers. I'd like Packers McKinley Dirk or net and there have been some injuries there have got to pick that ball and on the board a little bit. But it's still a very good year is that if you if you wanted to go edge rusher. In the courtroom and a quarter in the second you get good value and vice Versa if you're corner around one Ed rush around to. You could still get someone like. You know Cole and alcohol advertising dollars and from Houston. And still get a very good player who could make an impact that first year. Are the other question we have and we were just talking about this the running back position we know the Packers are probably gonna draft one if not two running backs. And the running back position we know Joseph makes in his is there are literally quote in the mix for the punt on Eaton will he be there are. Act when the Packers choose and the reason I ask is because. Because of that video everybody seems to think that he has fallen completely out of the first round I McCaffery maybe they're who note. But if he falls out of that first round would that be something the Packers don't be looking at it probably in the second round or will he go early second round. I think he goes early second round in and Harris told some friends last night because you know being from the serie. Everyone knows each of Mexico has because Oklahoma so close so. Told them I think the normal sane and Cincinnati Bengals with a changeup or it out at the top two. And I'm surprised the pact will bring him and do the work out wanted to get some. Excuse me to get some of that formation they didn't get because he wasn't about to become mine. If he's there. Amulets apartment player mind I think that is big great if that altered because. He's a power runner with eating great. So like it mightn't give Aaron Rodgers. I mean that read our running back kid still that is not that the effort from. What we ultimately the only last year or what we've seen David down here are cardinal like he is a true read on Brett I know what I talked to coach at Oklahoma. They thought he would have been their best receiver they had played in their full concept this and so really really count the player who obviously has. And even better background and what teams are different now you're trying to figure I'll. Was that incident when he was eighteen was that the worst moment it was huge mistake the east weren't from the built on. Or his character and so that's why these workouts for ever so important because. You know at the Carmine he would he got fifteen minute interview that retain. Now they can bring him and they get him all day and regularly try to carry crack away and Heatley is and maybe pressure a little bit and find out the guy we can trust. And because it is the draft in your have to do a lot publicly you on the and and rightly so it's. Yet find out you know is this a guy we can trust and that the next 45 years India. Model citizen and good teammate or you know be a problem for. Yeah and that's dumb. He is it's how much PR backlash can you handle now the Packers always have felt that they have strong locker room they have strong front office that they can handle stuff like this and it wouldn't be the first time that they had somebody with a checkered past. In their fold but if he's that good. You know do Packers fans overlooked at a piece you know doing double Lambeau leaps and putting their team on top which I think a lot of fan bases do so I think it's going to be yet to be seen would you take him in that first round. If. Lewis talents. I I would on talent now you know I'm not in there doing. I'm not getting fired a hike today I dressed in the first round any any bait you know enclosed. But just on our I think people appointments player draft. And you know you mentioned Christian McCaffery like they're kind of similar I could use them that makes it as much better at tackle any stronger as well so. I am more inclined to like him as a player over McCaffery analyzed I do love the effort tremendous player. I'm nick a great guy like you'll have anything to worry about when it comes from them so. If I'm given it was between the two. You know somehow in the guarantee that this neither one going to be a problem off the field then then I would take mix. The the other aspect of this is down linemen defensively. I wanna talk about both really in the trenches 'cause the Packers need to guard. And the Packers need some additional depth on the defensive line so let's start offensively first with a guard is there a guard that can fortify the loss of TJ went. I think so you know if it's first round sport one of western Kentucky if that sector ground against beanie or Doreen Johnson. On third round you can look like I picked out of the out of from Butte tall. It's a good offensive guard class to make that tackle class that Kevin craft are a little bit and and for good a reason. But I think the guard class action pretty solid so in the first you know three or around you could probably get a starter. At the guard position and a guy who becoming a play right away and the Packers have done a great job of identifying. Middle round talent on the interior. I do that you could find a starter men and if you wanna spend the first round pick and get an all pro or whether it be camp or cute you know structured scheme enough. You know like other teams do you can get a bit rap guy took it to be really. The other courses so I just tweeting me and said hey there's a couple of DBs out of Florida they ran slow. But their play on the field was really really solid I'm not quite sure specifically who we stock and amount. But Dave you know he's talking about Goran far away. Yeah we're there to corner from Florida want Clint to often I wouldn't say he ran well because he's 61 like fifteen pretty rare for fight for. Actually really good time for his side. He really consider one of the top corners though it because of his ability to go downfield to go to the apex right. Right and he's so physical or scrimmage and he has ball skills and like I think quick to alternate. One of the best corner for class. His teammate Jalen paver at the one who ran very very slow he ran a 475. That is pro day. He's six foot 200 pounds he's not injured. It isn't. I would always been built the last four must look at the head of the turnovers forty you guys he's been in trouble the past. Yet out talk ready as well mature. You know it not real accountable. He went from when the year started I thought it was a Bertram player I have him and the sport looked at around right now just because it. You know if you're not gonna put forth the effort to train for the combining your pro day met. You can put four yelled when the playbook or you show up camp on time and so he's just. I mean it's like an a class in destroying your draft stock what you've done in the past form of. Inside linebackers intriguing to me they picked up Blake Martinez lecture. Somebody who can knock the snot out yet and cover. Who would that be at the Packers chose an inside linebacker. Well Reuben proctor about stone and he can do all those things not not recovery can rush a little bit but operatic and simple. Probably played himself in the top one into the top twenty great athlete former corner who walked on a pimple. Became a defensive and now he's plant linebacker. I'd really love him as a player. Guys that would be actual fit for Green Bay Gerry Davis from Puerto could be that late first round. Record McMillan act Cunningham. I like the and Eagles looked content to them I'm sure a lot of your listeners know all about I'd. I think he's a really good player on which it doesn't fifteen seasons so much better about six in an injury but. The one. It was kind of bit of personal piece on the defense I think he could play inside for the next level. And maybe it takes them a year to get up to speed there but I think he's tremendous football player so. If he's there and a third round pick I'm targeting the day last week and you you have a lot of different ways you great linked. Really really good instincts great production to about fifteen looking at you know get a get a healthy. You can recruit a player when TJ one in the and so. I I like utilize is that things like he's such a project because he's so new to. The defensive side of the ball I've had people tell me be it a better I didn't mean would be. And had a rusher ordinance at linebacker but I am intrigued by hadn't athleticism is. He's not that which you have guy but what he has channeling Woody out where. The power that he is that how well he uses battling like. Is it all there for him it's just a matter getting him up to speed because I don't think he's. Super pro ready right away. But again if he's young guy twenty years old and have a very good athlete. Shore area explosiveness is all there at the measurable. And go to Portland as a you know how how much time opinion bested him free up in my field and that's why I think he's probably a late first early trigger guy. Always got to talking about we certainly appreciate it I'm sure we'll touch base is the drafted here and then afterwards okay.
