Sad reality that the neck to probably the one place you can't protect

Isn't that the truth!

I remember being stunned that he fell to the 4th round last year. Thought he was a 3rd Rd guy at worst. GB got a steal where he was picked. He would've been a great complement to Lacy in their backfield, but as it is, I don't think this will affect them very much, with the re-signing of Starks earlier in the off-season.

I believe he does have a degree in Poly Sci, so hopefully, he'll be able to begin a new career path with that. He didn't get much in the way of large "guaranteed" money as a 4th Rd pick, but hopefully enough to get him by while he transitions to a new career.
