    A very insightful article on my favorite pick of the draft, sorry Bulaga and Burnett :), CJ Wilson : Packers.com » News » Stories » June 15, 2010: Getting To Know A Draft Pick: C.J. Wilson

    He sounds like very down-to-earth guy who's willing to give it all for his team. Some notable quotes that stood out to me:

    If you have twitter, follow him and Mike Neal.

    Both consistantly reference the Bible in their posts. Specially Neal. He's quite a religious character.

    I am not, for that matter, nor do I care if a player is or not, but it's hard to see a thug recite a passage of the Bible...

    Cj .............

    I watched the young man play for the last four years ..... believe me you drafted a good one .... a man of character and class. He's one of those guys that will knock you on your arse and then extend a hand to help you up. He's solid as a rock, quick off the edges and strong as an ox. The young man not only talks the talk but walks the walk. He's not sucking up to you what he's doing is speaking what's in his heart. He'll give 110 % off and on the field!

    Couple pf videos ...... CJ is # 95 .....

    Agreed and thanks for the kind words. CJ Wilson was one of my favorite players entering the draft. I just wasn't sure how he would fit in Green Bay in our 3-4 defense since he's heavy like a DE but quick off the edge like a LB. Maybe the coaches have something create in mind.

    I think Wilson is a great player too, both on the field and in spirit. It's insulting how this guy fell all the way to the 7th round and I hope he tears up the rest of the NFL about it, hehehe. However I'm sure glad he fell to the Pack though, nothing like another 7th round gem. (Matt Flynn, Brad Jones)
