Announcing: It's Just a Game

About the book: Similar to how H.G. Bissinger’s Friday Night Lights uses high school football in Texas as a lens to look at society, Brian Carriveau’s It’s Just a Game observes adult amateur baseball in Wisconsin as a means to examine small-town America. The non-fiction book,...

Pro Football Draft Preview


From the letter from the editor:

Thank you for purchasing Pro Football Draft Preview, the second annual NFL Draft guide put out by Cheesehead TV. We’ve received a lot of positive feedback from our first edition in 2011 that has allowed us to follow it up for a second consecutive year and hopefully for many years to come.

We’re very proud of the affordability of our product that we believe is also of outstanding quality. It’s geared to fans of the Green Bay Packers, but any football fan interested in learning how defensive players fit in a 3-4 system will enjoy our unique analysis as well.

This year’s version of our Draft guide will have many of the same features as last year and some new ones too. Over 300 college prospects have been ranked and analyzed. We also examine the needs of every team in the NFL with the most attention and coverage given to opponents within the same division as the Packers and decreasing accordingly outside the conference.

We have an entire three-round mock draft in addition to a Packers-specific mock draft that attempts to predict who Green Bay will take with their picks in each of the seven rounds. There are columns with opinions coming from some of best and most knowledgeable writers in the Packers blogosphere and feature articles including player interviews.

After listening to our readers, we also made several improvements to our publication as well. We profiled every position on the current Packers roster in order to see where the new rookie class will fit in on the team. And we also included a section on the fullback/H-back players, features on the all-star and bowl-game circuit and a listing of bench press reps for players in the trenches.

As far as a look at how the Packers will approach the Draft, it’s shaping up to be an incredibly busy weekend in late April. With a draft choice all seven rounds, what’s very likely to be four compensatory draft choices and one more from the trade that sent the Jets offensive lineman Caleb Schlauderaff last season, the Packers have plenty of ammunition to help bolster their team.

That adds up to 12 selections, assuming the Packers are awarded the full complement of four compensatory draft choices for last year’s free agent losses during the NFL’s owners meeting in late March. Whether they use all 12 picks or package a couple of them to trade up remains to be seen. But one thing is for sure, if the Packers want to move up, they have the flexibility to do so this year.

Green Bay needs help on defense, that’s for sure. After a year in which they gave up the most passing yards in NFL history and the second-most yards ever, the Packers need help in both the pass rush department and in coverage. Even if they happen to trade away a couple picks, they should still have enough left over to make multiple selections in an attempt to upgrade the defensive line, outside linebacker and the secondary.

With that, enjoy the NFL Draft and enjoy our publication. I’m positive you won’t find one better suited to Packers fans anywhere.
