In retrospect the Packers should have traded back into later in the first round and picked up another pick instead of taKing Gary. You don’t take a “project” at 12 overall when you have so many holes to fill.
Those that followed Big Ten football have seen Rashaun Gary play many times. I don’t care about the measurables or athletic skills. It’s about making an impact on the field and too often the potential didn’t translate into actual performance.
Then he gets drafted and get paid a bunch of money and has almost zero chance to replace either of the Smith’s or get cut so how do you think this will end up?
Yes, overpaying for Nick Perry and eventually cutting him loose and not drafting TJ Watt isn’t his fault. But damn he needs to be getting more than 10 snaps a game to justify that much of an investment.
