Packer Report Draft Central

Months in the making, our unparalleled Packers draft preview is 100 percent free with our one-week trial. From our 41-story preview of the inside linebacker class to our extensive scouting reports and exclusive interviews, here it is in one handy spot. With less than one week until the draft, now's the time to check out what one reader called an "incredible resource."

The Green Bay Packers are almost on the clock, so if you haven’t read our unparalleled coverage yet, now’s the time to jump on board. OUR ONE-WEEK FREE TRIAL not only will get you ready for the draft but give you the reaction of the draft picks and the thoughts of general manager Ted Thompson, coach Mike McCarthy and the position coaches after the picks are made.

Our position previews don’t examine just the top 10 prospects at each position. How about the top 34 defensive linemen or top 38 wide receivers? Our scouting reports aren’t written by someone hunched over a YouTube video or the rewriting of someone else’s work. Our extensive reports comes from Dave-Te’ Thomas, who is the NFL’s head scout and a consultant for almost every team in the league — including the Packers. Want to see what we’ve got? Check out just the scouting section on one of the elite inside linebacker prospects.

We have followed the prospects from the all-star games to the Scouting Combine and through the pro days. We have interviewed most of the known Packers predraft visits. We have broken down the inside linebacker class every which way imaginable, with features, notes and scouting reports on all of the top prospects plus comparison charts that show you which prospects are the most athletic and most productive.

So now’s the perfect time to take advantage of OUR ONE-WEEK FREE TRIAL. Not satisfied or simply in a draft coma by Day 7? Just cancel and you will not have paid a penny.
