Much has been made over the Packers' running game in recent years, and this year's draft class proves that upgrading the ground game is a top priority headed into 2013. No, the Packers may not have landed the best running back in the draft — last Giovani Bernard mention — but they may have gotten [...]

Sleep on? The kid's getting more attention than Lacy, so I'm not sure anyone's sleeping on him.

The way that article's written is like you have to pick a player where he's slotted on the experts draft boards or something. It makes little sense. They had a 2nd round grade on Lacy and, maybe, a 3rd round grade on Franklin, which is why you trade up when you're getting that much value.

I have pretty high hopes for both backs. They're very different players. This isn't just drafting in the hopes that one of them will pan out, it's drafting in the hope that both will compliment eachother. With Harris on the roster already, maybe we'll have a Giants-like Bradshaw, Jacobs, Ward backfield.

As to Franklin himself, I'm quite impressed. I see why some scouts had him nr. 1 or 2 on their boards. He can do it all, but not in a jack of all trades, master of none way, but as someone who can be a proper RB, with STs and receiving skills.

More I look at the kid, I love him. Seems like a high character guy.. I love the fact that every game I watch with him he breaks off for a big run.

Cheesey (11-Jun) : Ok.
Zero2Cool (11-Jun) : Alan, it's an online stream.
Zero2Cool (11-Jun) : McCarthy speaks at 10am, so probably 11am for practice start.

Cheesey (11-Jun) : Thanks for trying WPR! I guess I’ll have to just wing it.
wpr (11-Jun) : Cheesey, The Packer's site says Nitschke Field. 12 am to 11:59 pm. I don't think they know
Cheesey (11-Jun) : Come on!! U smart guys can help me on this!
Cheesey (11-Jun) : Do any of you know what time the Packers mini camp practice is tomorrow?
Zero2Cool (11-Jun) : Vince Lombardi would have been 105 today
Zero2Cool (11-Jun) : If I were Owens, after reading what some of the voters have said. I'd say F YOU too. Shady process.
Zero2Cool (11-Jun) : Apparently it costs the inductees a LOT of money to attend.
beast (10-Jun) : Or if Owens is avoiding all HoF activity? Or if he's trying to figure a way to make money off this. Simply saying he's not going to be there doesn't tell me enough
beast (10-Jun) : I feel as if I need more details. Owens said he's not physical showing up, but he could still give a speech via video.
Zero2Cool (9-Jun) : Using 32 reporter votes is wrong.
Zero2Cool (9-Jun) : They held grudges against him, and ignored his excellence on the field. Bogus shit. Political garbage.
Zero2Cool (9-Jun) : Owens has a point. Absolutely garbage how voters acted, and have responded.
buckeyepackfan (9-Jun) : The HOF needs to conveniently forget to include Owen's in the ceremonies, then fake apologize after.
gbguy20 (8-Jun) : Kevin, suggestion box. move the applaud button to the bottom of the post so i don't have to scroll back up after reading a good post. same goes for quote button i suppose
Cheesey (7-Jun) : Well...I wonder what HE is protesting. Maybe that he made WAY too much money?
Nonstopdrivel (7-Jun) : Wait, what? He bitches for years about not having been selected, and now he won't attend the ceremony?
Zero2Cool (7-Jun) : Hall of Fame announces that Terrell Owens has informed them he will NOT attend the enshrinement ceremony in August.
Nonstopdrivel (5-Jun) : Looking at some of the multiyear rookie UDFA contracts made me think of it. But now I see it's standard to sign them for three years.
packerfanoutwest (4-Jun) : Tavais or Tyrell,,,what's your question/point and why?
Nonstopdrivel (3-Jun) : Probably I was thinking about Tyrell Sutton (Northwestern -- went to the Panthers).
Nonstopdrivel (3-Jun) : Apparently, I'm full of shit. The amount of money teams are allowed to spend on UDFA signing bonuses is extremely small.
Nonstopdrivel (3-Jun) : He's not named in any list of 2012 Green Bay UDFA signings, I mean.
Nonstopdrivel (3-Jun) : I don't think that's the player. I don't recognize the name, and he's not listed on any news article from 2012.
Nonstopdrivel (3-Jun) : Huh, his brief stint with the Packers isn't even mentioned in the Wikipedia article.
packerfanoutwest (3-Jun) : Tavaris Cadet
Nonstopdrivel (2-Jun) : He ended up not making the final roster and was picked up (I believe) by New Orleans. Can anyone remember what his name was?
Nonstopdrivel (2-Jun) : Several years ago, prior to the draft, Green Bay offered a RB prospect (out of Appalachian State, I believe) a six-figure signing bonus if he'd agree to hold out for them.
