Tre McBride Scouting Report: Small-school WR looks to make an impact in 2015 NFL Draft

A small-school wideout might be a great value for the Packers in the third round of this year's draft. With the Green Bay Packers bringing Randall Cobb back into the fold just before he hit free agency this year and returning two wide receivers who basically had lost rookie years (Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis), one might assume that the receiver position will not be a focus for Ted Thompson in the 2015 NFL Draft. It's possible that one might be right. Certainly, the likelihood that the Packers draft a wideout in rounds one or two is minimal at this point, but looking into rounds three...

Suh in South Beach? A 'win-win' for McCarthy

 Photo/ The Packers faced Ndamukong Suh for five years while he was with the Detroit Lions, but now he’s in Miami. PHOENIX – Mike McCarthy didn’t exactly do backflips when all-pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh left the Detroit Lions for the Miami Dolphins in free agency, but the Green Bay Packers coach was certainly pleased by the news – on two fronts.“I’m trying to teach my 6-year-old to do a cartwheel right now, but not that I’m doing any,” McCarthy said during the NFC coaches breakfast at the annual NFL Meetings at the Arizona Biltmore hotel. “I thought it was a...

McCarthy praises departed House, Williams

 Photo/ Mike McCarthy had high praise for departed cornerbacks Davon House and Tramon Williams on Wednesday. PHOENIX – Mike McCarthy had better be careful. If the Jacksonville Jaguars and Cleveland Browns decide to be as ridiculous as the New York Jets and New England Patriots have been with their silly “tampering” he-said, he-said game over Darrelle Revis, the Green Bay Packers coach could be in some trouble for all the nice things he said about the two cornerbacks he lost in free agency.McCarthy had nothing but effusive praise for both Davon House, who signed a four-year, $24.75...

Packers would support the proposed new extra point approach

 Photo/  Mason Crosby may be kicking extra points from 33 yards away instead of 20 next season. PHOENIX – For the NFL, changing the extra point apparently is a matter of when, not if.And the Green Bay Packers are on board with the format that the league will most likely ratify at their next meeting in San Francisco in May and put into play for the 2015 season: Moving the line of scrimmage for extra-point kicks to the 15-yard line (making it a 33-yard kick) while moving up the line of scrimmage for 2-point conversions to the 1 1/2-yard line, a foot and a half closer to the goal...

 Screen capture/NFL on FOX Packers president Mark Murphy acknowledged Wednesday that linebacker Clay Matthews may have needed a concussion evaluation in the NFC title game. PHOENIX – Although there weren’t many major rule changes passed during the annual NFL Meetings, one of the safety-related measures should be of some interest to Green Bay Packers fans who were baffled by linebacker Clay Matthews’ absence during the fourth quarter of the team’s Jan. 18 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game.Matthews missed multiple series as the Packers’ 19-7 lead evaporated...

Packers sign Wisconsin native Sebetic following veterans combine

 Photo/New York Giants Kyle Sebetic went to training camp with the New York Giants last summer.  PHOENIX – As root-for-the-underdog stories go, the Green Bay Packers may have found themselves a good one with safety Kyle Sebetic, whom the team signed Wednesday.Of course, even though general manager Ted Thompson can be a sentimental fellow at times, he wouldn’t have added the kid merely for the narrative.Nevertheless, not only did the former University of Dayton player take part in the inaugural veterans combine at the Arizona Cardinals’ facility on Sunday, but he’s also a Pleasant...
