I think tight end is one of the weaker positions on this Packers roster.

Jermichael Finley is underachieving successfully now.
DJ Williams has done nothing.
Andrew Quarless pre-injury wasn't doing anything to warrant us to believe he can unseat Finley upon return.
Ryan Taylor- pure special teams

Crabtree- our best tight end right now. <- Says something.

A little premature but I would love for the Packers to pick a tight end like Tyler Eifert (Notre Dame) in next years draft. Obviously other things would have to happen for this to work but Eifert is someone who already possesses NFL talent and would develop.

Quarless was really coming on imo.

He was always a pass catching TE, but had really learned to block very well.

I felt like the dude had matured off the field and rounded out his game.

He never had much of an impact when he was healthy so I'm not really counting on much from him.

If we lose another tackle, we're gonna need a TE who can block.

Wouldn't stepping up and filling in when Finley went down and helping win a SB be making an impact?

No, "filling in" is not making an impact, saying his contributions that year were an impact is being extremely generous. For being a full time starter that season he really didn't do much to be excited about. I know a lot of players that Ted drafts tend to improve over their 2nd and 3rd seasons so he may come in and help but considering he's been rehabbing and not really practicing I'm not expecting much this year.

He was a rookie.

Since then dude has matured AND really come on as a blocker. He's not just a pass catching TE anymore.

I like him.

Quarless has been a blocker for a while now... even back in his college days he was a blocker and Penn State ran the ball more than passed it and ran from a pro set which asked him to block. He's blocking has been fine. And to be a pass catching anything... you have to catch it... which is where he has been struggling...

He seem to adjust well after he starts adjusting to the ball... but always seems to starts his adjustment late... which is why I wonder if he has a vision problem and struggles finding/following the ball in the air. Some people need glasses or contacts and don't know it... there vision has been good enough to get by with out someone noticing it (or family didn't have the money for them) but need them to see 20/20.

Quarless helped a lot in the Super Bowl run, with his blocking, speed and dropping problem, Mike McCarthy used him a lot for blocking and being the decoy... such as sending him deep down the field taking a LBer and getting attention from the Safety made for an open crossing pattern for one of the WRs to catch a 7 yard pass and get some extra yardage after that.
