As you know, NFL teams only get 90 players to a roster so they are trying to pick the best players for that 90 person roster.

Based on what I have seen posted on here, the guy has to have more potential than at least 1 of our other UDFA's.

Unless they all have people ranting and raving over how talented they are.

GREEN BAY, Wis. — The biggest surprise of rookie orientation camp was the Green Bay Packers' decision to bring in troubled former Oregon tight end Colt Lyerla for a two-day tryout.

Now, it might be an even bigger surprise if they did not sign him.

The Packers were leaning that way following the conclusion of camp on Saturday, but general manager Ted Thompson was still mulling it, according to a person familiar with the process who said Thompson planned to sleep on it.

I hope he makes it all the way to the starting lineup, and we can take that Packer's people bullshit and stick it. Talent is what wins in the NFL, and a team full of good character guys can take a bad apple and help him change. Isn't that what mentoring is all about, or do we just condemn shitheads in their formidable years?

Watch this guy and how hard he is to go down. Just one tough SOB...he runs it out of the backfield like Randall Cobb mixed with Eddie Lacy. He brings a varied skill set with impressive measurables that no one else can touch for a TE. His vertical was just .5" less than Davante Adams. He outjumped all TE's at combine by 4". You don't find guys like him very often. Conversely, you don't find guys with his character too often, either. I'm going to bet if he played another position he wouldn't have such a stigma. Aaron Hernandez and the comparison has to make teams nervous. Who wants to take on a troubled TE who could may go Aaron Hernandez on you? I have not read anything about violence but some stuff regarding him has been kept quiet from what I read, if memory serves.

I do too. Packer People has been a myth from the beginning.

Johnny Blood was not a choir boy.
Hornung of course was exemplary.
Lofton and Coffman never had a care in the world.

And don't forget the biggest shithead of them all: Brett Favre. But all his "skeletons" were put in a vault not a closet.

If I'm Taylor, Bostick or Stoneburner, I'd be REAL worried seeing this picture.
