Why Horrible? Seems to be something the Packers can use.

Not productive.

No, he was productive, just not as productive as some hoped... What needs to be noted is that he played at very young age. He was 18, 19 & 20 his three years at UM.

A guy I saw training near me. He's huge and fast. If he puts it together...will be few better.

Absolutely. But he is a project at #112. Not someone you can plug and play, especially at OLB. There are also questions about his love for the game, since he already has his own sports business. So, I was unhappy when Bush was grabbed by Pitt. But I thought maybe Fant, maybe an OL. Gary was not on the radar.
All that written, if the coaches can reach him, and the other guys on the defense can reach him, he could be impactful. This is a big "boom/bust" pick. Very unhappy >:(

Christian Wilkins went with the next pick. He’s been my choice at #12 for two months. Great athlete, better FB player. Awesome team leader, all hustle all the time, smart (graduated in 2.5 years), grounded, humble,  Packer people.

And we take underachiever Rashan Gary.

Oy.

Amen.

10 sacks over a whole career as the #1 high school player in the nation is a severe under achievement. And he is injured to boot. Not a good first look in this years draft.

Now do the Packers make a trade up to get a second player that they have a 1st round grade on? And who is the next target?

Before I get too sad or happy....I am reminded of the fact Green Bay has done a ton of studying on him. They see something they can make a great player. So maybe he'll be a edge rusher and eventually learn the game and becoming a leader.
I like that he was very emotional on the phone.

What I'm hopeful for...and highly doubtful will occur...is that GB fans give Gary a chance to develop over the next few seasons without riding every move he makes.    Take a few years before booing every missed play or trashing him as a draft bust after preseason game 1.    Certainly wasn't high on my wishlist but he's a Packer now and not his fault he was the pick - lot of fans seem to hold a grudge against players they didn't want and create a merciless environment for them

CAR has been talking about Burns for weeks as the pick if they didn't go OT.    He's an interesting 1st pick with them moving to a 3-4

Look, we will all give the kid a shot and we hope his production comes close to matching his incredible athletic ability, but to say this pick was anything less than a tremendous reach isn't being realistic. They are banking on being able to reach this kid, and they left a number of very good players on the board that were all significantly better players than this guy.

Turn him loose!

Incorrect.

Age factor is big here... He was 18, 19 and 20 yrs old at UM.

For perspective, Winovich didn't play at UM until he was 20yrs old.

He was worse at 20 than at 18. Will he be even worse at 22?
