What is the absolute best way to learn a subject absent living it.

Teach it.

More accurately, go through the process of preparing to teach it.

An aversion to mocks is very understandable from the perspective of the consumer.

As a producer, at least privately, I have found that the most valuable part of the exercise is getting a better appreciation of a cost benefit analysis as regards trade up, trade down, etc.

In the real thing, you only get one chance per year, I know I have certainly restarted mocks when not happy with the results, they don't get to do that.

And two, with Mocks you generally get to see the big board, while with teams, it's clear that some teams have extremely different big boards from each other.

IOL Powers/DL Robinson certainly add power and help the run games for their side of the ball.

I got mixed feelings about Cooper, in some ways he's a one trick pony (stay back and then trigger when he thinks the ball is coming out) but he's also damn good at that one trick. That being said, I don't think he fits the defensive scheme we're going to be running (Cover 3 is my assumption) but they have not actually said what scheme we'll be running.

It'll be interesting to see which team picks FS Bullock, I'm kind of doubtful it'll be the Packers, but Bullocks could get an A for deep coverage but an F for the whole tackling, being physical, attacking blockers and ball carrier aspect of the game. So you only want Bullock as a deep FS.

OT Wallace is all over the map as far as grades, some have him in the 7th, I think this is the highest I've seen him go. Wallace a 3 year starter at RT has GREAT technique, but a bit more limited in terms of talent, I wonder if they would be drafting him to put him at RG.

Ray Davis is shorter, but heavier than Aaron Jones, he'll never have that deep speed, but he has some very nice quickness and has been used in a wide zone scheme as Kentucky has been running the Rams offensive system, of course his offensive coordinator is now the offensive coordinator on the Buccaneers now. Davis quickness and versatility are his calling cards, with nice weight for more power than you'd expect in a 5'8" guy.

CB Jones, played for the Packers new defensive coordinator at Boston College. Some reports have basically said Jones is a Cover 3 guy, and ONLY a cover 3 guy. Not saying Jones will ever develop to be half or a quarter as good, but his physical limitations are similar to that of Richard Sherman, whom used his brain and the perfect scheme for him (Cover 3) to make it happen.

The rest I'm not as familiar with

buckeyepackfan (22-May) : Not serious but waiting for strength and conditioning coach referwnces.
buckeyepackfan (22-May) : Tom and Kraft both injured(pectoral muscle),
Zero2Cool (20-May) : I feel similar about person and product/service.
beast (17-May) : Not sure why a players views reflect on GB... instead of simply on the player
Martha Careful (17-May) : I bet some of us have had 6+ mRNA jabs, a UKR flag on our walls, and still think Fauci has a thread of integrity
Zero2Cool (16-May) : From what I've read, it's all Jets , not us.
CanPackFan (16-May) : Will there ever be a time when Rodgers' whacko views will not reflect on GB? He is the past, thank god.
Zero2Cool (16-May) : Jan 4th gonna be rough with that start time lol
Zero2Cool (16-May) : Packers schedule listed. Boom.

Zero2Cool (13-May) : Sources spoke of many, many times last summer where Hackett called a play, then Rodgers changed it completely at the line
Martha Careful (10-May) : 1. this is true of all our linemen. 2. His run block is fine. 3. If all OL played like he has, we would win SB.
beast (10-May) : Meyers pass blocking is really good, his run blocking is really not.
Zero2Cool (9-May) : Packers have claimed DE Spencer Waege off of waivers from the 49ers and waived DT Rodney Mathews.
