Round 7: Noel Grigsby, Wide Receiver, San Jose State

This pick is a bit head scratching for Green Bay. All early indications show that wide receiver is one of the deepest positions in this year’s draft class, so I have a hard time believing there won’t be better receiver prospects available in the seventh round than San Jose State’s Noel Grigsby.

Grigsby is undersized for the NFL at 5-10, 176 and only has average speed (4.55) for a receiver. Grigsby did have a monster junior season, recording 82 receptions for 1,307 yards and nine touchdowns, but considering his size and lack of speed, I don’t anticipate Grigsby finding much success as a receiver at the NFL level.

Grigsby also missed all but two games of his senior season because of injury.

I agree with Miller that the Packers could find a receiver late in the draft, but I don’t think Grigsby will be the best available player for Green Bay, even in the seventh round.

Overall, I think Miller did a pretty good job finding players that both meet the Packers’ team needs and offer value at the respective round they were drafted. I would have liked to see a true inside linebacker be selected with one of the first three rounds, but it’s difficult to draw up the perfect draft for your team.

Would do you think Packers nation? How well did Miller do in finding players that are good fits for this Packers team?
