I wonder if they see Elliot Wolf as heir apparent at all over there at 1265. He's done pretty well raising up in the ranks.

Elliot Wolf and John Schneider are the 2 most likely successors to Thompson IMO. Wolf is in house and doing very well moving up the ranks. I almost wonder if he might get another GM job before Thompson retires. Schneider is in Seattle, but is 2nd fiddle to Pete Carroll, who has last say on roster decisions IIRC. Schneider is a GB native who would like to have full authority and make a return to his hometown.

Either will make an excellent GM for the Packers.

Don't forget about Russ Ball. He interviewed for the Jets GM position. He might be gone by the time the job comes open, though. Still, he should be mentioned before Schneider.

Ball is a great contract guy, no doubt about it. But his scouting background is limited. Personally I would much rather have a guy that has a larger scouting background than Ball. I hope the Packers can keep him in his position. If a team wants to hire him as a GM the Packers will probably lose him. But I wouldn't want a guy w/ salary cap and financial experience making personnel decisions.

There are many types of GM's and I don't think we should limit ourselves to one type of GM over another. There are 4 types of GM's I can think of: Financial GM's, Head Coach GM's, Scouting GM's, and Owner GM's. Right now we have more of a scouting GM that depends on others to nail the contract side of things, but you could just as easily have a Financial GM that depends on others to nail the scouting side of things. These GM types basically just delegate responsibilities differently. It sounds good to say that you don't want financial people making personnel decisions, but do you want personnel people making financial decisions? Of course not. That is why it's about responsibility delegation.

Like I said, I hope the Packers can keep Ball in his current postion. But leading the personnel dept, should be the best scout, the most qualified to make the best personnel decisions, not financial one as much. Thats what I believe and I think Wolf and Thompson have shown that to be the case. AZ hired their previous GM (Rod Graves) who had a background more on salary cap and financial side (he drafted Levi Brown over Adrian Peterson). They demoted him and gave the GM job to the head scout. The jobs are best seperated but IMO the guy w/ the best personnel background should be the man in charge making the final decisions on players.

Fresh Dri Archer needs to experiment with 'large role' to get Steelers

If could anything with this years Gambling, it is this specific: Pace sets these individuals as well as very last season's version.

First-round go with Ryan Shazier visits your landscape as the swiftest linebacker to go into your Football given that Steve Urlacher, whilst third-rounder Dri Archer provides Black color and Platinum a questionable X-factor whom rattled from the combine's prime 30 time (Five.Twenty-six) and it's anticipated to be used attractively inside unpleasant manager Todd Haley's structure.

"It's going to an important part, Archer claimed, a the actual Akron Beacon Record, "but I'm just simply going to do no matter what I am asked to perform. Play receiver, enjoy jogging rear Jamari Lattimore Jersey, supporting specific squads. What they have to really want myself to perform, I'm going to do it."

Unpacking Archer's function to the Around the Category Podcast, all of us find it difficult to find them consuming upward major button snaps during running returning or perhaps radio out of the gates Johnny Jolly Jersey. He is a sudden threat, while, to help flame squads for a kick-returning freak associated with dynamics:

"Exclusive is an understatement, man," Shazier instructed the actual newspaper. "He is just simply significantly quick. Exactly what performing, you cannot be free from just any person. It is awesome exactly what he is doing. If you find the baseball in their fingers, it is really such as lightning in a very jar. Now we have just became in order to obtain that turbo whenever you can."

The little linebacker's words and phrases advise that Archer do much more than gain trainer this offseason. There's, of course, many connective Geonomics with precisely how Haley tried to apply Dexter McCluster with Might. Yet Archer numbers being meshed gradually to the episode for a Steelers staff that ought to be enjoyment to watch occur June.
