The Green Bay Packers Select: Quinn Johnson (FB-LSU)

Now I’ll tell you what, I don’t exactly hate this premise behind this pick. One of the Packers problems late in the season was the whole generating push in 3rd or 4th and short. Quinn Johnson will try to blow up his opponent on blasts and iso plays. And more often than not? He’ll be successful.

The problem is? He is not a consistent blocker. You want a fullback to be able to handle the second level. Johnson cannot. He will hit and fall off of a player. And that right there is why I feel like this pick is going to lead to problems. Will Ta’ufo’ou, if given the same opportunity would have been a better success.

But he will probably stick as a Packer.
