Green Bay - It has taken two surgeries and a lot of rehab for Packers OL Andrew Datko to overcome the effects of a torn labrum suffered his junior year at Florida State.

I really liked this pick last year for the long haul. His problems seemed to be injury related so if he can get and stay healthy he could be a pleasant surprise this year and into the future.

I agree PackerTraxx. I have high hopes for Andrew Datko. The level of competition on our OL is the best we've seen in years. Datko was definitely a pick for a couple years down the road based on raw talent at OT.

Just in time for a battle at RT.

We should put up a poll for who we all think will be the starting right tackle for the Packers come the new season.

Does Datko have what it takes or is he just going to be that back up?

Question on Datko is the shoulder. He might back up LT though.

Quote:
Tretter’s future at center: The Packers played the Ivy League standout at both right and left tackle during the weekend, but the possibility of sliding inside and playing guard and center is still in the cards. Tretter stands just 6’3″ and likely isn’t suited to play on the edges. Early on, he could provide quality depth at either guard spot while the Packers develop him as the future at center. According to Mike Spofford, Tretter spent portions of his pre-draft process learning the basics of playing at the anchor. Like so many of his new teammates before him, Tretter will likely be trained to play at a number of positions along the offensive line.


I think Datko's going to be ok. Either way, we got T's. And Gs.

Having had surgery on both shoulders (my right one by a Packers orthopedic surgeon) I see this as a chronic problem for Datko.
If he was whole I think he would be a tough sumbitch who would challenge for a starting job.
