  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

Scouting combine winners and losers

Posted Feb 27, 2013

Tony Pauline weighs in on who's hot, who's not after long weekend

GREEN BAY—All of the 40s have been run and the verdict is in on this past weekend’s scouting combine. Here’s draft guru Tony Pauline’s report of the winners and losers for packers.com.

Quarterbacks—Geno Smith of West Virginia and Tyler Bray of Tennessee (pictured) are the winners. A lot of concerns were put to rest because Smith was accurate and made the NFL throws. Any team in the top 10 thinking of taking him is probably resting easier based on his combine workout. Bray has a big arm. He was accurate. The combine was built for him and he took advantage of the situation. Tyler Wilson of Arkansas was all over the place with his passes.

Running back—The two winners are Jonathan Franklin of UCLA and Kerwynn Williams of Utah State. They both ran faster than expected and showed a lot of quickness and acceleration in drills. Both caught the ball very well. Stepfan Taylor of Stanford was horribly slow and practiced slow in drills.

Wide receivers—The big winner is Ryan Swope of Texas A&M. He ran much faster than people thought. He ran in the 4.3s; people thought he was a 4.5 guy. He showed top pass-catching skills, which everyone knew he had. He’ll probably go in top 60 picks of the draft. Justin Hunter of Tennessee did well in testing but it was a different story in pass-catching drills. He showed no quickness or route-running ability, because he’s a long strider, and passes bounced off his hands.

Tight ends—The winner is Tyler Eifert of Notre Dame. He tested very well. Faster than many people expected and caught everything thrown his way. Levine Toilolo of Stanford didn’t look athletic. He ran poorly, struggled running routes and didn’t catch the ball well.

Offensive linemen—Lane Johnson of Oklahoma is the biggest winner. He was incredibly athletic and he also looked very good in position drills. Terron Armstead of Arkansas Pine Bluff also did incredibly well. He set the combine 40 record for offensive linemen and was terrific in drills. He had a workout for the ages. Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M looked ordinary. I don’t think he’s a clear-cut choice to be the first pick of the draft anymore, even though I have him there.

Defensive linemen—Ziggy Ansah of BYU really helped himself. He looked terrific in drills. Everyone knew he would test well. Joe Kruger of Utah ran poorly and looked unathletic, but his brother Paul also tested poorly and he’s been successful in the NFL.

Linebackers—The big winners are Barkevious Mingo of LSU and Dion Jordan of Oregon. They tested off the charts, running in the 4.5s, and they looked great in position drills. Jordan has got a torn labrum and he may not be ready for a while. People thought he should’ve had it done right away. Damontre Moore of Texas A&M ran in the 4.9s. He pulled up lame and never attempted another 40 and didn’t participate in drills.

Defensive backs—Dee Milliner cemented himself as a top 10 pick. He competed when he didn’t have to. He ran exceptionally well, looked athletic. All of that bodes well for him. Dwayne Gratz of UConn ran faster than expected, tested better than expected and looked good in position drills. Johnthan Banks of Mississippi State ran 4.6s. Some people were talking about him as a first-round pick but at that speed there’s no chance he goes in the top 40.
