Any rumor about the Packers liking or in love with someone, dismiss immediately because that information never gets leaked. You can count on it being a smoke screen.

I don't know why, but I feel like I am getting sucked into this discussion with you, and I don't even have anything to say... there's nothing more to be said... topic's been pretty much covered, but... your avatar....

I don't watch college FB to know who's out there, but sounds to me like we need to find a back that is getting 4.5+ YPC with a horrendous O line. He'll be a perfect fit for team.

According to walterfootball.com the packers are in love with Christine Michael, RB, Texas A&M

Projected 3rd

The Packers need better support for Aaron Rodgers by finding an improved running game. I could see Ted Thompson targeting a running back on the second day. Sources told WalterFootball.com that Green Bay loves Michael and that Thompson was practically stalking him at the East-West Shrine.

Michael had a phenomenal week of practice and probably helped himself more than any other prospect at the East-West Shrine. The 5-foot-11, 215-pound Michael showed off an impressive skill set and has starting potential for the NFL. He ran with quickness, power, balance, vision and cutting ability.

The senior totaled 417 yards on 88 carries (4.7 average) and 12 touchdowns in 2012. Most of the Aggies' rushing attempts went to freshman signal-caller Johnny Manziel (201-1,410).

Injuries kept Michael from playing a full season in 2011 and 2010. In 2011, before going down with a knee injury, he outshined teammate Cyrus Gray. Michael led Texas A&M in rushing prior to the injury. He averaged six yards per carry with 899 yards and eight touchdowns. Michael was knocked out during the 2010 season, too, breaking his tibia in the eighth game. He had 631 yards rushing with four touchdowns and a five yard per carry average. Michael had 844 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns as freshman, averaging 5.1 yards per carry

Being from the uk I know very little about collage ball we only see 1 or 2 collage games a week and usually for some reason it's been USC but he looks like 1st round talent that's been knocked back cos of injurys


Ted loves to draft guys with injury histories so look for this kid to be a Packer.

This. If Ted is letting on so strong to a certain player, it's almost a guarantee that it's a smoke screen. That's not how Thompson works. He will follow a guy like this and be seen publicly speaking with them often, and then draft someone in which they didn't even have a pre-draft visit with.

I put little stock into this report, regardless if Ted Thompson truly likes the running back or not.

I would love to see Ball a Packer. Ball has good speed, is strong for his size, has a nice little jump cut, can spin out of tackles, catches the ball, blocks well, uses the stiff arm well, has a great work ethic, and attitude. But I just don't believe that will happen unless he falls to at least the 3rd rd, in the 4th he would be way too good to pass up IMO, especially where we draft. However, we have more pressing needs and I think players of equal talent will be available at that point. If we could get someone to improve our Oline and our front 7 on D I would be happy, anymore would be a nice bonus.

Wisconsin used the shit out of Montee Ball, plus would he offer anything more Dujaun Harris does right now?

Reading reports I think I'd prefer lacy to ball he seems to be much tougher and a pass catcher/blocker
