BOULDER, CO – NOVEMBER 19: Quarterback Luke Falk

Luke Falk, Washington State

I mentioned Falk in my last article as a potential target for the Packers. He could be there in the third round.

His arm strength needs improvement, but it is hard to evaluate that as he played most of last year with a broken wrist, according to Barry Boulton of CougFan.

Falk could develop into a solid player for the Packers and I think he could be an immediate upgrade over Brett Hundley.

I like Jackson and Rudolph more than Falk but Falk brings nice value as he could end up going a round or two later than both of those guys.

The offense that Falk played in at Washington State could make his transition to the NFL a little harder, but Mike McCarthy has experience developing a quarterback that played under Mike Leach as he helped develop Graham Harrell when he was on the Packers.

Going to the Senior Bowl certainly didn’t hurt his draft stock as even though he missed the game for personal reasons he looked impressive in one of the practices.

I think the two biggest factors that scouts will look at will be how he has recovered from his wrist injury and if he will be able to transition properly to the NFL. I think he will be able to alleviate worries that scouts have on both of those subjects.

Falk has some question marks and if it weren’t for his wrist injury and he played at full strength all year he could have gone much higher in the draft and the Packers could be getting a steal as a result of this.
