With the inevitable departure of DT Cullen Jenkins and the recent arrest of Johnny Jolly, the Packers are growing noticeably thin on the defensive front.
Liuget is a stud defensive tackle from the University of Illinois. At 6'2" and 300 lbs, he has the build and strength to fill the void that could be left by Jenkins and Jolly.
Liuget is NFL-ready and can compete for the starting roll with promising second-year ex-Purdue star, Mike Neal. A defensive line then comprised of B.J. Raji, Ryan Picket, Neal, Liuget, C.J. Wilson, Howard Green and Jarius Wynn would be solid for years to come.
Liuget’s stock is rising after a solid combine and pro-day workout, and the chance of him falling to pick No. 32 diminishes each day. However, this year’s draft remains a mystery, with the top 15 picks unknown and the placement of the top four quarterbacks in limbo, so for now, Liuget is the selection.
