With the NFL Draft nearing and mini-camps a month away, there is finally a story that has sparked some interest..

Greg Paulus, who played with Duke Basketball for four seasons, has reportedly worked out with the Green Bay Packers.

All college basketball fans remember how cocky Paulus was on the courtbut will that carry over to the NFL?

Tony Gonzalez and Antonio Gates, two former college basketball players, are now two of the top tight ends in the league: Gonzalez is possibly a Hall Of Famer.

Paulus was originally offered scholarships to play football at Notre Dame and Miami, two of the nations most storied programs.

A quarterback in highschool, it will be interesting to see if Paulus can play in the NFL. Surely he won't be as successful as Gonzalez and Gates, but hey, anything can happen!
