According to railbird central, the packers have interviewed them all. How do you feel regarding the quality of the players we interviewed? It's pretty obvious that we are interested in Raji. I'm pleased we spoke to Clay Matthews. Cody Brown is another name that stands out in the list. I was quite positive on Cushing until i heard about his alleged steroids use.

I would've liked them to interview Louis Delmas, Shawn Nelson, Eric Wood and Larry English.

Of course there is the tactical side of the draft, by not interviewing someone means that you can keep your interest on a certain player under wraps and then spring the surprise on draft day.


Note: I apologise for not putting this thread in the Packers draft talk section. That was my mistake.

Cody Brown is an interesting prospect, I don't know if he could be considered a 1st rounder.
Anybody?

Ron Brace is a strong candidate for a plan "B" along that d-line, and I'm hoping he remains under the radar, but unfortunately everyone that scouted Raji couldn't exactly miss him out there...He isn't what you'd call tiny. :icon_smile:



3rd round would be quite lovely.

I wonder what it means that apparently none of the marquee pass rushers listed in this article have been interviewed by the Packers. Are the Packers trying to cloak their actual strategy or are they focusing on late first-round and second-round talent? Or is this a hint that Aaron Kampmann's job is not only secure, but that he will be the featured pass rusher?

My first guess is that it means none of those guys are at the Senior Bowl. Clearly, Everette Brown is not there. I'm not sure about Orakpo and the others, but I haven't heard anything about them in the reading I've done. They may have opted to skip the game.

Ah, my ignorance is making itself known. I didn't realize these interviews had solely to do with the Senior Bowl. I figured scouts could interview prospects at will.

Brain Orakpo and Everette Brown are not at the Senior Bowl.
