    I saw his names pop up several times in packers mock drafts as a backup 3-4 DE. He's regarded as a late round draft prospect because of a torn pectoral muscle injury in 2009. He's a respectable kid and has drawn multiple comparisons as a raw version of Darnell Dockett.

    Nice recognition skills, and mobility. But got manhandled a lot of times...

    Starting off in that tape he looked rough, got pushed around, but later on he showed some impressive flashes. I just wish the guy would stay on his feet once he has a chance to get the QB. He just sort of jumps at them and if he misses that could be a problem (think big ben this last year when we couldn't get him down).

    Yeah GB should draft more prospects that are coming off injuries.....

    How did that work out with J. Harrell

    J. Harrell was a first round pick whereas Arthur Jones is being suggested as going in the late round. By the way do your research, most late round picks are players who are more injury prone anyway.
