Devante Mays, RB, Green Bay Packers
Picked: Round 7, No. 238 overall
Mays is stepping into a running back situation that couldn't benefit him more as a late-rounder. With Ty Montgomery as the lead back, the Packers clearly had to replenish their depth at the position and they did that by drafting Jamaal Williams (fourth round), Aaron Jones (fifth round) and Mays (seventh round). To me, Mays has the highest upside of the three backs. Mays is built like a truck and possesses a 40.5-inch vertical leap. He's more athletic than Williams and much more powerful than Jones. If Mays had made more than 37 carries this season (injury-riddled season), he might have gone ahead of both of his new teammates.

Maybe we got a couple of diamonds at the skill positions in the 7th round.

Maybe we got some diamonds; which means maybe not? Huh!RollEyes

Thanks for bringing that to our attention, but this is truly a Capt Obvious moment. I could have told you that just by knowing they were drafted in the 7th rnd.Zipping Mouth Zipping Mouth Zipping Mouth Zipping Mouth Zipping Mouth

Now maybe if you spoke of some of his traits or something in his past or something he did in a play or 2 to add depth and body and meaning to the idea that maybe a 7th round pick might be diamond, there's be something to discuss here. Otherwise Face Palm.

Damn I'm a funny guy...LOL LOL

Looking forward to the preseason games this year for this very reason.

The battle for the rb position is going to be fierce.

The Packers have to replace Lacy, Starks and probably one more spot which saw Jackson, Michaels and ??? (Was that all?).

Keep an eye out for a fourth guy.
#34 Kalif Phillips.
Udfa out of Charlotte.
5-9 218#.

Jeff Mullen was his HC at Charlotte, Mullen just happens to be from Lima, I have worked with his father for several years.

He is excited for the chance Kalif has.

Of the 5 new rb's , I think 3 will make the final 53 with 1 more going to the PS.

Going to be fun to watch it all work itself out.

The Packers will (if nothing changes) have 12 draft picks in the 2018 NFL Draft. I just hope they are not mostly 6th and 7th round picks. Glare

It chills my heart when I hear that one of the Packers draft picks had a "mostly injury riddled" last season in college whether it's a first round pick (Harrell) or a seventh round pick (Mays).
But I guess Starks kind of worked out.

I hear you, it's certainly a reason for concern. The bright side would be looking at it like we got a player who had higher round talent so IF he stays injury free maybe we did get a steal. If not we got 2 other RBs and according to Buckeye maybe even a third.
