Numerous outlets say the talent is there for Colt Lyerla, and there is absolutely no question about it.

He's 6'4" and 242 pounds and clocked a 4.61 in the 40 yard dash.

Unfortunately he's a more troubled version of Jermichael Finley. Yep, he says some stupid crap on Twitter. The worse things are his drug arrest and other off field issues.


Everything that Johnny Jolly went through, if Jolly can reach out to this kid and bring him down to earth, I think it'll be a huge catch for the Packers.


Read his Draft Profile for more information.

Where the hell is my popcorn when some comment on this prospect.... Big Grin

On a serious note.. worth a look.. on a UDFA deal if they bring him in, there is little risk if he steps out of line. Drop the hammer quicker than a hiccup.

I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Actually he is worth a look. That doesn't cost them anything. If they send him packing it still doesn't cost them anything.

THRILLED with this move. Yes. He was a guy I was hoping we'd use a 7th rounder on but I guess we didn't need to. Pretty amazing the guy didn't even get signed as an UDFA. He has to just tryout. Wow.

I hope he gets his act together for himself and then for the Green Bay Packers. This guy could be a monumental addition or merely just a mental one.

No risk and all reward (if he pans out). He's someone I wanted. If not for the off field issues this guy was arguably an early second round pick. If he gets his act together and sticks, this could be a huge steal.

Quote:
From a talent standpoint, Lyerla is one of the top 100 players of his class. However, red flags drop his draft stock. Last October, he was arrested for cocaine possession. Ultimately, he and Oregon parted ways from one another. Misgivings aside, Lyerla’s combination of size and athleticism is what teams want in the modern-day tight end. He’s a natural pass catcher and hustles on every play. With a high ceiling, it seems likely somebody will take a flier on him in the later rounds.

That was my scouting report on him.

I rated him higher than Richard Rodgers.

Lindy's has him rated higher as well. # 10 TE vs #11. both rated 6.0 on a 9.0 scale which means key reserve. Was projected to go a round higher at 5th or 6th vs 6th or 7th.

Def worth a look. If he gets a contract, any chance to make the roster or PS?

Oregon's Colt Lyerla, with help of Hillsboro Spartans family, overcomes childhood trials

Quote:
But within the hulking, reluctant star still resides the anxiety of an often painful childhood he doesn't care to revisit. Dysfunctional home life. Little direction. Plenty of anger and frustration.

To those who know him well, it's a miracle he is attending college, let alone starring for the nation's No. 2 ranked team.

How Lyerla has made it this far is one aspect of his past he doesn't mind discussing. How through the help of coaches, teachers, counselors, administrators and parents of friends he overcame precarious pitfalls to stay in school, remain focused and live up to his potential.


Quote:
The goal wasn't simply to get him to college but to provide him with the skills necessary to survive.

Hillsboro High turned out to be Lyerla's haven.

"I really just tried to stay focused and channel into sports," Lyerla says. "I spent all of my time at HilHi, really."

Says Ingram: "That's where he's at home, on the football field. When he could be there he was in his world."

If Driver were still on the team he would have been a huge asset to this young man.

Donald Driver doesn't need to be on the team to be an asset. That same application goes to the Johnny Jolly reference made earlier.

A man can help a man without being in the same uniform. We shouldn't have such boundaries when helping another person.
