Will Blackmon Is In Trouble

If 2nd year CB Will Blackmon has a fan club out in the blogosphere, it should be worried because the 2006 4th round draft choice isn't looking good. He spent most of the 2006 season injured and now his name had been mentioned a couple of times last week as the cornerback who gave up a couple of big pass plays to different receivers. Then on July 31st, the only time I noticed him on the NFL Network training camp broadcast was when he got beat on a pass. Now it appears that CB Jarrett Bush has moved ahead of him as the fourth cornerback. It would seem likely that the Packers will keep more than four cornerbacks, but they might keep an extra safety instead and let S Nick Collins or S Tyrone Culver play corner in an emergency.
