It will be interesting to see if this kid wants to validate the Packers stunning him with where they selected him and prove he was worth it or if he just slums it.

Khyri Thornton was quick to admit it. The defensive lineman was surprised — perhaps even stunned — when the Green Bay Packers called his name with the first of their two third-round draft picks in the NFL draft.

This takes me back to when Mike "sleepy" Sherman drafted big ol' James Lee out of Oregon State. That guy was stunned he was drafted by us, as he wasn't expecting to be drafted, but he was only a 5th rounder. He never did diddly.

Hoping for better this time.

That's funny.

"Painful Moments... by Jack Handey..."

"When the Packers drafted me, I was completely stunned."
"We all were Khyri... We all were."

The great Ted Thompson deemed you too valuable to take a chance on letting you get past that 1st of his 3rd round picks.


We will totally dismiss the fact that unlike ANY of your contemporaries, you were selected far BEFORE you THOUGHT YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN.

That Ted is brilliant, Khyri. He's got you figured out better than you do.


Ya, right.

This is the same situation as Mike Neal. Nobody expected him to be drafted as early as he was. Mike has been somewhat disappointing, but has had a lot of nagging injuries. We'll see what Khyri is all about soon enough.

Was funny when we drafted Mike Neal and we got the same type of "we could have gotten him in round 5 or 6" type of comments. Then a picture of Dallas draft board is leaked and they had him in the 3rd round.

If you haven't seen this guy, go look at the clip of the rooks first day at Packers.com... He is literally a combo of Rick James and Arsenio Hall.

Shame on you

When it's all said and done we'll be referring to Reggie White as the preview to Khyri Thornton.

What you're saying is Khyri Thornton will amass over 120 sacks and fail to win a championship until he leaves via free agency and is in his fourth season with said new team?

Remember, previews and movie trailers can be misleading! Tongue
