The NFL Draft is quickly approaching - are you well versed in this year's crop of potential new Packers? Not really, you say?

Unashamed commercialism! Russia, eat your hearts out!

Ha! Can I interest you in 10 copies? :)

Cheesehead TV "Making the Packers Great Again". Keep up the good work. Russians wish they had football.

Got mine.

Thanks to Al and all the CHTV contributors who build this content for us to consume--and inexpensively, too, I might add.

wagszilla's picture

Good work, everyone!

I'm excited to see how it all turns out but wouldn't be too upset with Al's mock coming true.

Jersey Al's picture

excellent tease...

jimtalkbox's picture

Got mine last week and it's well worth it. I love having a Packers-centric draft guide!

Jersey Al's picture

Thanks Jim!

ottscay's picture

Third or fourth year in a row I've pre-ordered, it's always been worth it, and this year is no exception!

Jersey Al's picture

Thanks for your repeat business!

ottscay's picture

Thanks for your fantastic product!

holmesmd's picture

Al,
I would love one but 2 years ago I ordered one and never received it:(

Jersey Al's picture

First, did you let us know? Second, you don't "receive" it, you download it from your user page on this site. Instructions come in an email when you order it. Finally, your user page also shows your history. For example, the Order history" page for ottscay above shows each order for the guide he has placed. If you look at yours, it shows no orders, ever. Are you sure you completed the order?

holmesmd's picture

Not sure Al? Wasn’t accusing you of anything. I just thought I went through the process and as I recall, I couldn’t download the content? It’s not a big deal. I meant no offense.

Jersey Al's picture

None taken. Just trying to understand what happened. I wouldn't want you to have paid and then not gotten it, but it doesn't appear you ever really ordered it. You can try again!

holmesmd's picture

Ok Al. Cool, no problem. Is there a link on this app. somewhere and what is the easiest way to obtain the content?

Jersey Al's picture

If you are on our app, just scroll down to my article called "Packers Fans - It. Is. Time," open the article and click on the Draft Guide link in the second paragraph.

Nick Perry's picture

@ Holmesmd..... I've bought it for the last several years and the first year I ordered it I made comment I couldn't get it downloaded. Al saw the comment and explained to me EXACTLY what I needed to do (Technically Challenged) in what seemed like minutes and I was able to get it downloaded.

The man sees ALL!!!

I prerecorded mine again this year. First morning reading it I had spent almost 4 hours pouring through it before I knew it... Great job...AGAIN!

Thanks Al!

Jersey Al's picture

thanks for the kind words! there is definitely a lot of content to go through - we don't skimp!

holmesmd's picture

Thanks NP. Yes, I vaguely recall the same thing happening to me. I guess I didn’t properly follow thru:( I’m pretty tech competent but whatever. Haha! It was $9 so not too devastating:) Is there a pre-order link that I’m missing to order this year’s version? Getting fired up for the draft!!

Handsback's picture

I'll be there live and can't wait. Green Bay needs help in so many positions.....the right pick is BPA.

carlos's picture

Can you get it in magazine form? That’s what I would prefer. Seem to have computer issues at times.

Jersey Al's picture

Unfortunately no, that's way too costly.

carlos's picture

Thanks Al for the quick response. Love the work you do. Great job. Will talk to the computer expert- my wife.

carlos's picture

Most likely will be signing up. Wife just got things on the computer cleaned up and back to normal. Thanks again.

Jersey Al's picture

thank you!

Cheesehead TV's Pro Football Draft Guide is a 'Can't Miss' for me. It was expertly done and is my best guide toward this year's nfl draft. Keep up the good work Al & Co!

Jersey Al's picture

Thanks for the kind words!

There has been No scout posting on Ridley @14. Ridley shows some Hands like Jerry Rice. Rice was 6'2. and 200 lbs. Ridley 6' 190. The numbers at the combine suggest he has flaws. Knowing the packers need a WR. Whats your gut say?

Dontworrygopackers's picture

id have no problem with ridley. one on those high floor guys, put him with arod and he might touch the ceiling... i.e. jerry rice

Royalty Free GM's picture

Why is it essential that Packers draft Calvin Ridley?

I’m not saying that Adams isn’t good, but we need to be THE BEST when we have a guy like Aaron Rodgers.

Ridley would give the Packers a dimension that ARod has never had in his career, never. A speedy deep threat that can actually catch the ball and run with it.
And when secondary starts backpedaling too much, there comes RBs&TEs picking up yards more easily.

Combine Ridley(separation) with Adams(high balls) and opponent teams will need two very good corners to slow down our air attack... and those teams are rare as we know.

Draft THE BEST WR (Ridley) and become the best! He is even worth trading up little. #14 would be a steal. Just don’t let this opportunity to slip away. Don’t settle to 2nd or 3th best, that’s what Vikings and Lions are there for ;)

This is the Packers LAST chance to draft something really good for ARod to work with. Let’s not waste this rare chance to unleash ARod’s full potential. It is time. Let’s ATTACK!

Nick Perry's picture

Hmmm, respectfully I disagree....Seems to me Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson BOTH gave the Packers exactly what you've suggested they've never had.

Sometimes when I'm bored I'll watch older Packers games on You-Tube. Bart Simpson who posts TONS of games on You-Tube recently put up several games from the 2011 season. Watch a few of those or just look at the stats for the season for Jennings and Nelson. Those guys were both fast and could catch it and run with it. Matter of fact I'd say they both were two of the best in YAC.

This comment in no way is suggesting the Packers draft or don't draft a WR early. I think 14 is to early for Ridley but that's just my opinion.

Royalty Free GM's picture

Yeah... They were not so good. Having a luxury to play with ARod they should have way moore than just 3 pro-bowls combined. And our WRs outside of Green Bay (without ARod) ?... just mediocre.
Ridley has much much higher ceiling. 4-5 pro-bowl years... at least. He can be great. Last great receiver we had?... Sterling Sharpe. It is time.

That said, last year Nelson was pace to 800 yards and 16 TDs before ARod got hurt. And he got fired instead of Cobb? A big mistake.

WKUPackFan's picture

Perhaps the You Get What You Pay For GM is unaware that Jordy was the Kansas high school 100, 200, and 400 meters state champion.

Royalty Free GM's picture

WKU - He had speed, but only 1 pro-bowl to show. Something was missing.
I like Jordy Nelson. Much more than Cobb. I would have kept Nelson instead of Cobb. Any day.

stockholder's picture

The packers have not brought him in yet. Why? Defense seems to be a higher priority. But I thought I would see more on Ridley. Especially from cheesehead. Hope they post something soon.

Royalty Free GM's picture

Stockholder - There are no articles about Ridley, because cheeseheadtv article writers are so busy finding and downvoting my Ridley comments? ;)

Btw. Who are cheeseheadtv?

Jersey Al's picture

down vote.

Chuck Farley's picture

im a Mich and Bama fan both. Ridley is a hell of a wide receiver, not top speed guy but elusive and hard to cover with great hands. He would add a lot to the pack but unfortunately I think they are targeting defense for sure with the 1 pick and he wont be there in the second.
One thing that will help a Ridley is going to a team with a speed guy to help open the field up.

Royalty Free GM's picture

Nick Perry - I think we are spoiled to think that our offense will always be great as long as we have ARod.

Our offense is now one-dimensional, it lacked speed badly last year and it still does.

The unconventional truth (omg) is that our offense might be cooling down this year, if we don’t upgrade ARod’s weapons with speed and excellent hands. If we wanna keep scoring and winning, draft Ridley at #14 or sooner.

With the second pick we can get a very good corner (trade up little if needed, we have too many picks anyway): Hughes, Oliver, D Jackson, Davis

And we are on our way to Superbowls.

Nick Perry's picture

Depending what the Packers do with the right side of the O-Line I don't think their as "one-dimensional" as you might think. I really, really like Jones. If he can strengthen his knees in the weight room to limit the sprains I really think he's a future stud. Now I didn't know you could actually help prevent sprains to the knees by putting in work in the weight room but I did actually read that you could. Without looking it up I'll just assume it's true.

I do agree with you though, the Packers offense isn't going to be the high powered attack we've become so accustomed to. Sure wish TT used those 2nd rounders he used on Rollins and Spriggs on WR. Nothing is certain but a WR in the 2nd round by Thompson was about as certain as you could get in the draft. Just like 4th round O-Linemen.

I'm MORE excited for this draft as any I can remember. I have this feeling if BG gets it right multiple SB's are in our future. If not I'll be mighty concerned about the Packers chances while Rodgers is still Rodgers.

Royalty Free GM's picture

NP- I agree that TT has found good WRs at 2nd-3rd rounds, but I keep asking myself; could we find a great WR for ARod with a good first round draft position!?

If WRs who are mediocre elsewhere, are good with ARod.
Then if Ridley is good WR elsewhere, would he be great with ARod? And what a firework show that would be!

Not a single pick in any draft is 100% sure for success.

But do we really wanna see Aaron Rodgers retire without giving him ONCE a chance and opportunity to play with draft’s no1 WR?

Either we see it or we don’t.

holmesmd's picture

@NP
You certainly can strengthen connective tissue such as tendons and ligaments with heavy resistance training but it takes a lot longer than developing muscle. When muscle become disproportionally stronger than the connective tissue, catastrophic injury becomes more likely. Jones is pretty strong for his size. He’s also still a kid. Males develop strength and mass into their early 30’s! Let’s hope Jones can stay healthy!

holmesmd's picture

So a healthy Jones, Monty, Adams, and Cobb suggests that our offense will be “slowing down”?! Huh? I don’t follow you on that one.

carlos's picture

So many needs and so few picks, even though we have more than most teams. I like the extra swings at the plate. Even a single is better than a strike out or no swings at all.

Nick Perry's picture

Yup...The NFL is littered with All-Pros who were late draft picks or UDFA. The last few seasons the Packers haven't been as successful at unearthing or signing the better UDFA. You'd think with the reputation the Packers have with giving UDFA every chance in the world to earn a spot more of the attractive UDFA would want to come to GB. Hopefully that gets better again with BG.

holmesmd's picture

Isn’t he similar to Greg Jennings when he came out?

steelshaftGBP's picture

I ordered it but keeps saying I don't have rights to access it.

Jersey Al's picture

there are no orders in your account. Try again.

Dontworrygopackers's picture

i know i like to make dumb post that are pseudo coherent and from time to time can just be an asshole but i gotta be honest( i pitched in nine bucks to make myself feel smarter) but i usually stay away from politics. when it comes to eric reid being unsigned i want no part of this. IN 2018 NFL WOULD NOT SIGN A CASSIUS CLAY. I'm going to ride out the rest of mike daniels playing time cause he's as fun to watch as arod.

Jersey Al's picture

Well, at least your honest about your comment quality... :)

GBPDAN1's picture

Can we be sent this draft guide on a free trial basis to see if we like it before purchasing? This is what I do at a newsstand. Lol, just kidding. I'm going to buy one this year.

I have five family members who were do for a visit to see me in Los Angeles ( I was born in Milwaukee and then grew up 2 hours North of Green Bay) and we decided to plan their trip around the draft so we can watch it together. It's been awhile since we picked this high, so it will be fun.

I'll add your draft guide to my already purchased, inferior, draft publications. I know yours will be more informative. Now I'll go back through this and read instructions on how to male the purchase. Go Pack!

carlos's picture

GBPDAN. 2 hours north of Green Bay. You’re close to the UP. The true frozen tundra where the Yoopers live. In the cold north surrounded by Great Lakes. GODS country. I live by the Pictured Rocks National Park. Beautiful pristine country in the back woods.

Jersey Al's picture

thanks for your support!

GBPDAN1's picture

Hello, Carlos. Yep, I'm a Yooper! Ford River, just south of Escanaba. Worked on farms and in the woods as a lumberjack as a teenager to make money. Now I'm in LA running my own business with 25 employees.

Loved growing up in Packers country - Although the UP is half Packers half Lions. Because I was born in Milwaukee, my dad had season tickets when the Packers would play at Milwaukee County Stadium. Kept the tickets when all games moved to Lambeau.

carlos's picture

GBPDAN. I’m from Munising. It’ll a small world. Have friends from your area. What kind of business do you have. I’ve been retired for over 4 years. May make a trip to Riverside CA to see my buddy also from the UP next winter.

carlos's picture

Mostly Packer fans in Munising, but lots of Lions fans also. Been some heated arguments over the years. lol. A few Vikings fans scattered about hear and there.

carlos's picture

I actually lived in LA many years ago. A little too busy for me. Much calmer in the UP. lol

Chuck Farley's picture

Darn. I'm going to have to watch the draft at the MGM Sports Bar in Vegas I'm afraid. I guess someone has too.
Gosh golly I'm sure going to miss all that snow here in Minny. Just like the plague.
Hopefully by Thursday my tan will have started to mature. HA!
Anyways, like a lot of you I see the very creme of the crop defenders gone by pick 14. These are the playmakers and pro bowl guys.
I say they go with Harold Landry and probably our best need fit? Either that or the best ILB available but for sure its defense for number one.
