The Green Bay Packers Select: T.J. Lang (OG/OT-Eastern Michigan)

Filed under: Boring Homerism,Draft Nerd — by Andrew @ 11:43 am

Ted Thompson makes with a solid sleeper pick here. Lang went into Eastern Michigan as a defensive line prospect, and he shifted to offense during his second season. Left tackle may be a bridge too far for Twanger in the pros, but you know what? The Packers need their help on the right side of the line. And he seals the deal.

He has solid reactions for such a raw player. He is very good at getting off the line quickly, and he plays with a passion and intensity. He doesn’t have great change of direction as well as weak hand punch. But that sort of skill is something a good coach can develop. He can contribute right away inside, but maybe you can move him inside.

I’m a little scared. I’m liking a Ted TRhompsn draft too much.
