Lang, Williams, Newhouse, Jennings, Pickett, and Neal will be fighting for starting spots but I don't see them getting cut. You don't improve the defense just by getting rid of starters and getting different ones and adding a bunch of rookies you do it by adding players that beat those players for starting spots. Not every spot on your team is going to be all-pros. I think fans don't appreciate how hard it is to find players that are better than the guys listed let alone find 53 better players and all during 1 offseason.

Ideally you hope for the first couple of rookies drafted to contribute at a level that helps your team get better.

Then you hope for a couple of rookies that surprise you and contribute more than expected.

Finally, you hope for a couple of rookies to make an impression and stick on the roster to develop into starters a year or so down the road.

I hope for impact from Jones and the two RB's. I think two to three defensive guys can rotate in and help the D.

I like the two Olinemen to make the team and maybe be a fill in for an injury later in the year and push for starting spots next year.

My surprise guess is the WR Johnson. I think if he can make the first 53 he and Rodgers will be a good duo later in the year.

Ted just has a way of finding those WR's.

History would say this many players in one draft doing what I would hope for above is against the odds.

Hey, just for clarity, I'm not saying they are getting cut. That's six players, and I do think 7-9 of those listed are retained. However, I do see some pretty big turnover on this 2013 roster.

I like TJ Lang just fine, but I would guess he was one of those players who didn't grade out as high as he normally may have, with the poor play of Saturday and slipping play of Newhouse on either side. We did add a lot of OL talent recently. His starter spot may not be a given. Yet, he's probably the safest.

I do think an inordinate number of rookies will play critical roles this season. Also, I think we all would like to see better play at all of those positions listed. Big question marks loom with many of those players, creating opportunity for new talent.

I'm curious, does anyone know the cap hit the packers would take by releasing Tramon Williams?

Not that I think that is likely, I figure they'll give him every chance to start and hope his shoulder is better.

Cheesey: THANK YOU again for all you do.
Cheesey: You do all the work, while some think they don't have to honor your few rules.
Cheesey: Kevin, you KNOW how much I appreciate this site.
uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
uffda udfa: I don't want to be difficult but you do for some reason. I know you've been dealing with a lot.
