Lawrence Guy is the Packers' Man


Ted Thompson went outside of is comfort zone and selected a guy that we've actually heard of, taking Arizona State's Lawrence Guy with his final pick. Guy is a DT/DE that was projected to go as high as the third round, but slipped due to those dreaded "character issues". From what I can tell, he had some problems early in college but turned them around, yet the perception on him never changed. Great value pick here for the Packers nabbing a guy who is coming out as a junior. It seems like he's suited as a defensive end in the 3-4 defense. The scouting reports on Guy make him seem like a steal for a seventh round pick, and I think we can expect him on the regular defensive line rotation come this fall. All of these draft thoughts, of course, pending that there actually is football played this season.
