    Just a guess, but I feel pretty confident nobody likes this pick.

    A big ten tight end...iffy at best. I'd like to see what he does in pre-season before I judge this one. He could be a good backup if Finley goes down.

    I feel like this might be the death of Donald Lee. If this guy performs halfway decent in camp/preseason, that is.

    Both of this...

    Still, I hate this pick. Hate it till proven otherwise. He's not gonna cover or rush the passer for us, and there's only one ball to be thrown, and we've got already 5 talented guys to receive.

    If it was Hernandez, I wouldn't have minded. But I can't even remember this kid playing at PSU...

    Well there was a run on for TE as we saw so TT probably figured this kid was not going to be available after a couple of picks? I didn't think we should've been picking a TE anyway.

    creates match up problems and was the leading receiving TE in PSU history, just character issues are the problem.

    I don't mind it. You gotta have 2 TE's and Finley can't do it all. Whenever Lee gets a chance to make a big play, he drops the ball. I think this was a good move in the overall scheme of things, I just wish we could have gotten a CB or OLB

    This is our only pick, other than maybe that RB starks, that I don't like very much. This was a reach, we dont have a glaring NEED at TE like other positions. HE doesnt have great production, not a great motor, since he would be the 2nd TE he would be mainly a blocking TE and he doesnt BLOCK.

    Agreed. TE is honestly probably the least of the needs we should be worried about, with Finley, Lee and Havner who I think will pan out to be much better than Lee and this Quarless kid.
    Waste of a pick, imo.

    i agree its a reach but..... before we burn tt house down look at his stuff he runs a 4.58 40 time thats stupid fast for a te. ya i know some people will say 40 time doesnt matter but i wanna see him and finley in a two te set we would have the two most athletic te in league on the field at the same time.


    THIS ALSO TELLS ME THE PACKERS WANT FINLEY TO BE OUT WIDE ALOT MORE LOOOK OUT CB'S

    yeah, i just feel like there was a lot of TE's in this draft, and there were still some DB's left in that 5th round that might have covered more of a need in my opinion. No doubt about quarless' athletic ability, but all I am hearing is that he doesnt work hard on or off the field.

    Quarless is a Finley clone. Well he has the potential to be anyways. I think he can get over the problems he had at PSU. After Paterno gave him another chance, Quarless stopped all the bullshit and got his act together. He had a really good senior season. Quarless is first round talent and fell because of his off the field issues. I think it's a great choice to take a chance on him, especially when he looks like he's gotten his life back on track. Like people have said beforehand, Finley and Quarless on the field together is gonna be one hell of a duo.

    Well, if he shows some flashes of Finley in him, I like the pick.

    Still, he won't cover for us, but that's another issue...

    I agree because the more weapons you have the more problems you create for the defense. This guy is player and in a 2 TE set he'll be excellent. Much better then either Hafner or Lee. Anyway, many of our picks weren't the sexy kinds that makes you say wow but just give them a chance,

    like i said above i think we drafted him to be more of a true te, because i think finley will be out wide alot even more then the year before. lets face it nobody can cover finley....... bring it revis

    Im an LSU fan and I saw what this guy could do in the Capital One Bowl. Really not a bad pick up. Real athletic kid but struggles with consistency on and off the field. Maybe the Pack can get the most out of him. I think he can complement Finley real nicely.
