What happened to Giacomini?
It was a disappointment to see that rookie tackle Breno Giacomini struggled during the Green Bay Packers' first day of training camp after an impressive performance in OTAs.

First off, he was demoted to the third string offensive line. "The No. 2 offensive line was (left to right): Orrin Thompson, Allen Barbre, Junius Coston, Josh Sitton and Ryan Considine," reports Tom Pelissero of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

It's a little discouraging to see that the undrafted Considine was the right tackle instead of Giacomini who was drafted in the fifth round.

Then the Louisville product further struggled in one-on-one pass blocking drills.

"Rookie offensive tackle Breno Giacomini had a rough stretch in the second session," reports the Green Bay Press-Gazette. "Giacomini, who appears to back-pedal too much in pass coverage, was called on to take four consecutive snaps. Montgomery beat Giacomini on two straight bull rushes. Then Giacomini fought to a draw with Jason Hunter before being beaten by Hunter on the next snap."

It was only the first day of camp so we're willing to give Giacomini a pass, but it just wasn't a good way to start.
