I really like this kid, so I am going to make a bold prediction that he will be the 4th receiver by the end of training camp. I really feel like he is going to do damage in the slot.

How do yall feel about that?

Anyone else care to make a bold prediction?

Kind of a bold prediction for a guy who I think is injured or at least hurt to the point he couldn't practice.

I hope you're wrong. I hope he does better!!! Seriously, he is one of the draftees I really like also. I think we are going to have to cut a pretty good receiver from the 53 this year and that it will be difficult to keep him on the practice squad.

I've got high hopes for him too, but he seems more like and outside man than a slot receiver - excellent speed and leaping ability, but so far no word on his ability to catch in traffic and cut like a slot receiver. He's more Nelson or Jones than he is Cobb or Jennings (was).

The mysterious injury and falling to the 7th round worries me a little bit too, but if he develops later instead of sooner, that's still not too bad.

If he even makes the 53 I doubt he does much this year. It's a big step going from rookie to NFL WR and he doesn't have much of a lead on the competition (Dorsey and all the UDFA WRs) after missing the entire offseason so far. I doubt any of these guys beat out Boykin for #4 to start the season. Whichever of these guys end up making team I wouldn't expect more than 10-15 catches out of them unless there are some major injuries.

I want this kid to succeed as a Packer but he may not be ready to make the Packers 53.
I doubt he would last on the practice squad though either.
Perhaps with whatever this injury thing is they can PUP him this year as a way of stashing him for the future.

Yeah it is a reach but that's what makes it bold. :) I see your points though, but I suppose we shall see.

Anyone else have any bold predictions?

I like him, but I'm going to wait to see what he can do.

We got some intriguing talent at WR this year. Johnson and Dorsey could both be diamonds.

Then we got a couple of speedsters too. Be nice if one of these guys could become the designated return man.

Really? OK...

We will have two 1000 yd RBs this season.

We will have two 1000 yd WRs this season.

We will lead the NFL in INTs on D.

We will go 19-0, running the table and taking the champagne away from the '72 Dolphins.

Always the optimist!!!! =d> =d> =d> =d> =d>

Much better than all the negativity that seems to fly around this forum.

I'll agree with 2 and 3, I'll even go as far as say three 1000yds receivers this year.

DAMN BOLD PREDICTIONS play2win!!!!

You say this as a joke, but it's not as unrealistic as people might think.

The most impressive thing about Johnson is that he scored 31 TDs in 22 games.

No. darknessrules asked for bold predictions, but I won't complain if our games play out that way! That's pretty funny stuff...

With a renewed, or better yet, NEW emphasis on the run, I feel our OL will become more proficient run blockers, and our new RBs Lacy and Franklin have the potential to be 1000 yd backs.

The added running game will open up far more opportunities for Rodgers and our WRs.

A real pass rush added to a ball hawk secondary will give our offense far more opportunities to make plays. We should get up big on teams this season, and we should be able to close games out with the run like Levens & Bennett used to do.

We are one year removed from going 15-1. Going undefeated with what I believe to be a better overall team now will not be foreign territory for many of these players and coaches. If we roll the way I think we can roll, this is entirely possible.

Somebody has to knock off the '72 Fish. Why not us?

As for Charles Johnson, we have 4 players cut from very similar moulds vying for 2 spots. This kid's gotta get outta the tub!

How many yards do our WRs usually get? Well we just lost two of them, so that's plenty more catches for the top three. These guys ALL have the ability to get YAC. Cobb, JJ, Jordy. You kdding me?

Now for the RBs. 1000 yards isn't what it used to be. It's much more common than say, during the 12 game season era. But think about it this way. You didn't specify 1000 yards RUSHING. These RBs can all catch passes out of the backfield, they can all make one guy miss, and they can all take it to the house. Not to mention Franklin might be used on kickoffs. That's an easy 40-60 yards/game right there, all-purpose.

As for the INTs, yeah, we lost Charles. But that also means fewer penalties. Look at the DBs we've got back there. If McMillian steps up to be legit, even if he's not super special (which he DOES have the potential for, make no mistake.) these CBs can lock down the entire field. All they'll need is a little pass rush, which hopefully will be coming, via Datone Jones, Nick Perry and the boys.

This is a very good team, and I honestly do believe they are even better than they were last year. Certainly they are better than they were two and yes, even three years ago.

Since they played so much nickel, Woodson was playing CB a lot when he was healthy. When he wasn't, Hayward was playing there and he managed to get a lot of picks. Allowing passers a 23.7 rating when his guy was targeted. I would say that Hayward is an upgrade over Woodson at this point.
