In the second round, the Packers took Eddie Lacy. In the fourth round, they traded up for Johnathan Franklin. And somewhere, running back Alex Green was fielding plenty of phone calls and text messages.

If memory serves, he WAS healthy for a period of time before his injury, right? Not to be too negative - let's give the guy a chance - but I can't help thinking if Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy still had high hopes for Alex Green, they wouldn't have so thoroughly covered his position in the draft.

Wow, that's nifty. I typed the letter T twice and the letter M twice, and presto, the names Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy came out.

It's forum magic. There's also a filter that protects your SSN by converting it to all X's.

XXX-XX-XXXX

See?

Keep in mind, Green was a third round pick, was he not? Iirc.

Johnathan Franklin was a 4th, right? Green also led the nation in yards per carry.

Green got his shot last year, and he didn't really light it up. I think the two biggest things that got in his way were the knee injury the year before and over-eagerness. I think he lost a little burst, which hopefully will be back by the start of this season. Also, I think earlier in the year, he was always trying to hit the homerun, trying to break loose and for a long run. Towards the end of the season, I thought he was learning from Cedric Benson to just follow his blockers and take what he could get.

Not saying he's gonna necessarily start, but he's def a candidate for third down guy. He'd be perfect on screens, if the Packers every want to go there.

Quote:
At no point, Green said, was he 100% last season.

"No, I wasn't, I wasn't," Green said. "I came back, I got close to it, but once I got close, then I had a couple setbacks. I was never really quite where I wanted to be, but I made great strides in the off-season. I'm definitely getting ready for this year."


Quote:
He started slow. In his first three starts, the 2011 third-round pick out of Hawaii mustered only 2.4 yards per carry. Initially, Green struggled pressing the hole and waiting for cuts to develop. But through November into December, he found a rhythm with the offensive line in Green Bay's zone-blocking scheme.

Through a five-game stretch, Green rushed for 245 yards on 59 attempts (4.2 average), blending well with Starks.

And that's when the soreness set in. A concussion sidelined Green for one week and scar tissue built up in his repaired knee.

Green didn't have a carry in the Packers' final four games. Instead, he had a front-row seat to watch Harris' emergence from obscurity. Green wanted to play, but he couldn't. Rushing back from rehab cost him.

Correct, Green was a 3rd round pick in 2011. If Green's knee is recovered, he has nothing to worry about.

This year's draft was bad news for Harris and Starks I think.

I bet they keep Harris. Starks gets traded to Kansas City.

I think DuJuan Harris has the best chance of the half backs of 2012 to return.

Harris offers a change of pace from what Lacy and Jenkins can do, so I think he's ore likely to make it. Pease could make the team as well, deending on how his camp works out, and I can't imagine them carrying more RB's than that.

It would be great if any of these guys (Green, Harris, Starks) have any trade value. They certainly have a surplus of serviceable backs.

I would be surprised if anyone traded for Starks though, given his injury history. If Ted Thompson got a draft pick for him it would be the fleecing of the century! [-x =d>
