For the first time in a long time I've caught up on the NFL.
Like the David Johnson to Houston and Deandre Hopkins to Arizona swap.

Would love to see another swap: the Pats pick up Jameis Winston given that Tom Brady has signed with the Buccs.
I know - not likely to happen.

Don't understand the Packers draft strategy.
Play in the NFC titled game with a porous defence, no worthwhile TE and only the one decent WR.
So they lose their 4th rnd pick in trading up to draft a gun-slinging QB who had 20 TDs along with 17 Ints in a 7-6 season in 2019.
Sure he might be a long-term franchise QB but what about the next few years?
Then the Packers draft a RB in rnd.2 and an undersized TE in rnd.3. No WRs.

It looks like they'll be going for more of a running game next year. That makes some sense given their defensive troubles. Play more of a Seattle/San Fran game - keep the opposition offense off the field.

But what about Rodgers?
The Packers really don't seem keen to help him out. They haven't drafted a WR or TE (or RB for that matter) in the first round in the entire time Rodgers has been in Green Bay.

If I was Rodgers I'd be pissed.
Rodgers in surprise trade to the Patriots? The Pats have drafted 3 defensive players and 2 TEs so far. They really need a decent QB.

FORMER St Kilda forward Arryn Siposs is on the verge of becoming the fifth ex-AFL player to realise his NFL dream, signing as an undrafted free agent to the Detroit Lions on Sunday morning.

Siposs was overlooked throughout the three-day NFL Draft, with only two punters selected in the entire seven rounds, but was among the first players to sign with a team as an undrafted free agent in the aftermath.

He will likely battle with the experienced Matt Wile and the relatively untried Jack Fox for the starting role at Detroit, after the Lions moved on from veteran punter Sam Martin last month.

Siposs revealed last week that the New York Jets and the Atlanta Falcons, as well as Detroit, had registered their interest in selecting him prior to the draft.

However, the Jets took Texas A&M's Braden Mann and the Falcons opted for Sterling Hofrichter out of Syracuse.

However, Siposs eventually earned his opportunity and will now look to join Darren Bennett, Ben Graham, Sav Rocca and Chris Bryan in playing at both AFL and NFL level.

Siposs, 27, has spent the last two seasons in the United States, having been delisted by St Kilda after just 28 senior games at the end of 2015.

He committed to Auburn University ahead of its 2018 campaign, ranking inside the top-20 nationally for yards-per-punt (44.2 yards) throughout his freshman season with the college football powerhouse.

If you spent some time watching the draft you have to have noticed Kliff Kingsbury's house and be aware of the many comments engendered.
Some (bored) fans went so far as to build a lego replica.
