Too many injuries to make much of an offer, but the talent is there

Justin Harrell-DL- Packers   Feb. 3 - 10:33 pm et
   
      
Packers 2007 first-round pick Justin Harrell is expected to move from tackle to end in new coordinator Dom Capers' defense.
At 6'3/310 with no pocket-pushing ability, Harrell isn't built to play end in a 3-4. Harrell is a pure run stopper. He is unlikely to get a chance to start. The Packers continue to hope that Harrell will avoid another back surgery.

why?

no pocket-pushing ability. Pure run stopper. It was obvious this is what he was coming out of college, and its what he is in the pros. Over the last 6 years weve had NO problem finding tyhose types of players. We need someone who can rush the passer, or else why not just keep Haye and Hovan?

If Haye and Hovan are the starters next year, the BUCS DLine will be awful.



The BUCS are gonna surprise people this year!

exactly

So why try to replace Jovan Haye with another Jovan Haye?

If we are going to draft a DT in the 1st 2 rounds or sign a FA to address the problem, they better have some pass rushing skills and not have just made their name off of being a good 1 gap run stopper. There are countless players like that in the NFL. We either need a pass rusher or a mountain (Haynesworth) who teams have to gameplan against
