#PackersDaily: Almost tandem time

With Tuker Kraft's improvement and Luke Musgrave getting close to returning, there's a chance the Packers could feature an impressive tandem at tight end in the near future.

This draft reminds me of the Patriot's when they picked Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez in the same draft. They were set at TE for the next ten years if Hernandez hadn't turned out to be a violent criminal.

Gutekunst appears to have hit big time on both Kraft and Musgrave.

Not to mention some great potential in the young WR's.

I was a huge Tucker Kraft in college so I was very happy when he was drafted by GB. Both he and Musgrave look great now but lets just wait. I always remind folks when a rookie has a slow start - the same thing applies- lets look in 3 years. I hope they are Jackson and Chmura.

I hope they continue to shine and it could be a great run oriented short passing attack. But take a breath and let them grow!

I'd love to see #88 85 33 22 and a fully healthy and HOT #9 on the field all at the same time. Who's stopping that?

Only a wishy-washy O-line. It's been improving, so we'll see. Hard to believe we were used to a top five Line for so long, but it's been a couple years now.

One of the 3 or 4 huge things to be elated with the Team, that despite the offset caused by the MLF/Barry effect, gives us real hope in the near term.

#1 TEs.!! OMG And one a 3rd Rounder

#2 Jordan!
Love being as good as could be expected,along with some jaw dropping throws and plays to smile about all winter,spring and summer

#3 Nice batch of WRs.
Despite all the injuries . I read stuff like this and laugh. "Packers will be down to Doubs, Hicks Toure, and Melton" Like last year was better at any point?

#4 BrooksMcDuffie,Tom,Rhyan, Valentine,Wilson....

And a lot of high picks for next year.

Happy New Year everyone!

Notice that Grant DuBose gets no mention as a WR. Identical 40 speed to Wicks, should be used as his direct substitute when Wicks is out due to injury. Bo Melton should be used as #9's direct substitute when he's out due to injury, and signed to the 53 man roster to keep him from being poached.

I think the question of how to play the preferred starting DBs returning from injury was handled wrong; play them yes, but not every down right away. Bringing them back more gradually was the obvious choice, and surprising they didn't. Will be interesting to see how they approach Justin Jefferson. Hopefully our pass rush feasts, then coverage is less crucial.

Is this fantastic Musgrave guy you’re all talking about the same guy who stumbles and falls every time he makes a catch? Just asking…..

In the draft, I really preferred Washington, Kraft, and then Musgrave. I was thrilled to get 2 of the 3. iMO Kraft is the better long term result.
