It was only a month before the NFL draft that Mike McCarthy was singing the praises of DuJuan Harris:

“Oh he’s going to play for us next season. That’s his responsibility if he wants to be the starter… Once he got ready, I felt great about the way DuJuan finished the season. Looking forward to having him for an offseason and look for good things for him.”

March was a good month for Harris. You couldn’t go two clicks of the mouse without finding a feature on Harris. JSOnline did a feature piece on him and what he was doing to prepare this offseason. Our own Adam Czech posed the question, “Real Deal or Flavor of the Month?”

don't like the dude for our team - sorry guy ...
IMO we are better off with a bigger powerback ... unless our Oline guys suddenly get really good at run blocking etc ...
besides we need someone to pass block too; and Id rather have someone with some muscle there that can run and block.

but we will see ...
be a nice contest with our RBs this season

Going to be quite a battle at the RB position in pre-season.

IMHO there will be room for Harris and he will have a role.

I agree with the writer, Starks and maybe Green could be in trouble.

A team can never have enough good solid RB's.

Harris proved last year he could contribute. Let's see how he reacts to the competition of a TC.

Color me as a guy that still believes that Harris might be a large contributor to the Packers. One thing the Packers don't do, is feel the need to play a guy just because of his draft position.

If a guy can play and earns it.. he plays.

Fans may be overlooking Harris, but that certainly doesn't mean that the coaching staff has.

It will be fun to watch this battle be waged.. and I for one enjoyed watching DuJuan hit the running lanes at full tilt.

I like the different talents each of the RBs bring. The competition should be very good.

He's a Rice/Stokes kind of dude.

I think he can play. Speed AND power. He's small, so he can be hard to find. Also runs low, so it's hard to get under his pads. I'd take him over Green, and I like Green.

I like this, and then replace Kuhn with a pancaking fullback. It's too early to dump Green, but he is not a between the tackles runner - he needs to be used in space like sweeps and screens.

Csonka and Kiick had Mercury Morris; Taylor and Hornung had Travis Williams; Lacy and Franklin have Harris ...... but wait, this is the damn I formation. Oh well.

Green/Starks/whoever better be an asset on special teams, because that probably will determine which if either make the roster. I read Starks already is on the trading block.

If they can get anything for Starks I believe they would take it. From what I've read they were not happy with his practice habits. That coupled with his problems staying on the field don't bode well for him. If they don't make a trade it sounds as though the odds are he won't stick. I also like Green but I think it will be Lacy, Franklin and Harris, barring injury, as I don't think they will keep 4 RBs.

Unless Harris really craps the bed in TC I don't see Starks beating him for a spot. The real question is if they keep 4 RBs and if so is it going to be Green or Starks? I could see 4 RB+Kuhn for the season if they want some insurance for Lacy by creating roster spots by trimming the TE count down to 3 (JM, Quarless and DJ/Mulligan/Taylor).

You really need to learn to let go, man. Alex Green is a never was and the train has left the station. Drop your nostalgic link to the fabulous #20...

Does this mean you don't like Green or you have mad passionate man love for Kuhn?

I think you have to wait and see how they play in training camp.

If Starks is 100%, I still think he's better than Harris and Green... but if he gets injured again he's good as gone. And if he gets banged up... then it goes to the judges (aka the coaches) and I'm thinking they're gonna say gone unless he clearly looked like one of the best they got.

Green has a lot of physical talent and was getting better at reading his blocks (which he really struggled to do coming out) ... but he got that knee injury and his burst was gone... the question is ... did he get his burst back or not? ... if not he's probably gone. If he got it back I think he could make it but it's going to be an uphill battle for him.

Harris might be little but he stacked at 5'7" 203lbs and he runs low which gives him more power than one would expect. He's small, which means he can get though smaller holes. Great burst and goes north/south which I LOVE.


I think Harris and the two rookies will make it if healthy. Maybe a 4th guy if Starks or Green can get 100% healthy and stay that way... but right now I'm doubting that.
