Packers All-Draft Bust Team: 1991-present

Green Bay All-Time Draft Bust Team

The Green Bay Packers are known as a Draft and Develop team, but that doesn’t mean that they always get it right. In fact, they tend to get it wrong a fair amount. Not as bad as some other teams, mind you, but they are not hitting 1.000.

I have only been around since 1991, and there have been plenty of draft busts to create a full team. I got the idea from the book, “Packers by the Numbers,” chapter 77. If yo want to see a full Draft Bust team going back to the first ever Draft, look in that book. Without further ado, the 1991-present Green Bay Packers Draft Bust team:

QB – Brian Brohm (Round 2, 2008)

A complete failure in Round 2, Brohm never developed and failed to beat out fellow draftee Matt Flynn (7th round). He bounced around the league since, starting game in his career.

RB – Alex Green (Round 3, 2011)

A home run threat out of Hawaii, Green blew out his knee his rookie year and was never the same. He led the team in 2012 in rushing but got cut the following year.

FB – Quinn Johnson (Round 5, 2009)

The heir to William Henderson, Johnson was a tank who struggled with the speed of the NFL while in Green Bay. He never made an impact before being cut.

WR – Cory Rodgers (Round 4, 2006)

BREAKING: Green Bay Packers select Kennard Backman, TE, UAB, 213

backman

Analysis (Mike Wendlandt)- Backman is a prototypical H-back. Catches the ball well, especially in traffic. Listed at 6’3” and 258 lbs, Backman is a receiver first. He was dependable and durable at UAB, playing consistently all four years. Solid after the catch, he likes to lower his shoulder and push the pile. He struggles as a route runner at times, and is not the cleanest player in and out of breaks. Struggles as a blocker on the line, struggles to engage lineman and doesn’t seal the edge. Led UAB in receptions with 39 last season.

Has a basketball background, was All-State in high school, and we know how basketball players translate at tight end. He may not be the next Antonio Gates, but he has intriguing athleticism and ball skills.

Team fit (Ross Uglem)- The Packers desperately needed another tight end on the roster, if even for the purpose of camp bodies.  Andrew Quarless, Richard Rodgers and Justin Perillo are the only holdovers left from the 2015 team.  The Packers are a team who have carried as many as 5 tight ends into a season before, so being as thin as they are now is troubling.

Backman is certainly going to have an easy road to reps at training camp, what he does with them is the important question.
