Green Bay --- Through those early practices at Kansas State, the other running backs laughed at him. Angelo Pease didn’t know how to crouch into a proper stance, didn't know how to take a hand-off.

He was a quarterback his entire life.

"So I tried to equate everything to the quarterback position and try to reverse teach him that way," said Kansas State's co-offensive coordinator Dana Dimel. "What kind of thoughts you want to have when you’re carrying the ball, as a quarterback. Reading the blitzes coming out of the backfield, the timing of that was a little bit of a transition for him."

Over time, the jokes did stop. Dimel believes Green Bay has a find in Pease.

“By the end of the season," Dimel said, "I thought he was one of the top running backs in the Big 12 with an upside higher than most kids coming out of the Big 12.”

Could Pease be the next undrafted rookie to fight his way onto the Packers' practice squad, roster and --- at some point --- be a factor?

I think it's a possibility but for him it could be tougher with the logjam at the position. I am not sure the Packers will want to go with 3 rookie RB's. If he looks good enough to keep, I don't think he'd get to the practice squad without someone else grabbing him.

Someone could end up on IR.

You just never know. Boykin made the roster at a position of depth last year.

Kid's got a shot. Who knows, maybe Ted can package him up with a few other guys and get a late round pick.

One would think that with Dorsey in KC and McKenzie in Oakland Ted Thompson would have a couple of new trading partners. In addition, they are both teams that could use some help.
