We're done! Have an NFL Draft cookie.
Two compensatory picks for the Packers.
#241 - Andrew Datko, T
Good, solid pick. whenever you can pick up a potential starter in the 7th, you're gold.
Wes Bunting had this to say at NFP:
Impression: He's a solid athlete who can bend, re-direct and block in space. However, he's had some struggles with power when trying to stay engaged and hasn't been able to stay healthy throughout his career. Nevertheless, in a weak offensive tackle class, he's one of the few prospects that possess the skill set to start in the NFL.
#243 - BJ Coleman, QB, Chatanooga
I like it a lot. The Packers have a QB camp which is a tremendous asset to young QBs and as Coleman's biggest issue is his footwork (accuracy and everything else stem from that), he couldn't ask for a better situation.
For the Pack, it's a low risk scenario. Graham Harrell is the number two and Coleman, barring devastating injury, will have time to adjust.
Here's what Bunting had to say:
Coleman is a tall, good looking quarterback prospect with a well-put together frame, good height and the ability to easily see over the line of scrimmage. He possesses an above-average arm, can spin the football into the second level and won't have any problems making all the throws at the next level. However, he is raw with his footwork, his initial step from the gun is with his left foot too often (he's a right handed quarterback) and he wastes a lot of motion stutter-stepping in order to balance himself to get away from the pocket. He doesn't get away from center quickly, and he will struggle with his balance trying to get rid of the football in the three and five-step game. Coleman almost seems to fall off throws and will throw off his back foot without collecting himself, causing his accuracy to suffer because of it. However, he does do a nice job collecting himself and getting a nice wide base to throw from when he can step into throws. He transfers his weight well, gets the ball out of his hands with a solid release point and generates good torque from his lower half. He displays "plus" placement with his plant foot and is accurate with the ball when he collects himself. He will need some time to mature from under center and improve his footwork, but is a good enough athlete to do so.
