    He turned pro last draft a year early, and I had read some places that had he remained at Arizona State for his senior year, he could have boosted his stock way up to perhaps a 2nd round pick.

    The Packers took him last year late, round 7, and basically redshirted him with a concussion thing.

    He's a 6-4, 305 pounds which is the size that Jarius Wynn & CJ Wilson do not have. Wynn was 275 when drafted and Wilson 290.

    I am not expecting a lot from him, but I believe he's a natural 5-tech who will give us more than Wilson, Wynn, and Neal have.

    Still, I want to see us use a high draft pick on a better DE, and/or free agent.
    Nonetheless, expect to hear some good things from this Guy this year for us.

    Thanks for putting this together.

    You can't help but root for this young man. He was projected to go much earlier in the draft. My hope is that being overlooked will provide additional motivation. His biggest challenge may be learning the defense. Luckily, DE, is one of the easiest positions to learn in the NFL.

    Lawrence Guy was one of my sleeper guys as a 5T last year, I thought you guys got tremendous value for him in the 7th, especially with the imminent loss of Jenkins.

    Hope he turns out well for you guys.

    Yeah that pick isn't looking to promising now. It's a shame, before he went out with the knee last year, he had that nice game vs. Washington.

    2 years in the league though, he barely even plays. He started getting some time for you guys down the stretch, but nothing much and he didn't do much.
