2017 Packer Draft Factoid
« on: May 11, 2017, 12:25:43 PM »
I read that a total of 330 players were invited to the combine in February and that of the 253 planers that were drafted, all but 25 were at the combine.  The Packers drafted 3 of the 25 non-combine players (Yancey, Amichia, and Mays) with 2 other teams taking 2 players and 18 other teams taking 1 non-combine player.  I don't know to what degree Green Bay is often at the top of the group of teams in this category, but it's interesting and likely means something or is revealing of TT and/or the scouting team's values compared to other teams.

Perhaps they are just good at casting their search net a little wider
