At #52, the Pack Picks WR

With the 52nd overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft (acquired from New England in a draft-day deal), the Packers picked Western Michigan wide receiver Greg Jennings.

Here's what's Prospect Profiles has to say about Jennings:
"Jennings is a player that is impressive. He is one of the few players at the position with no glaring weaknesses. He is a very good athlete with the foot quickness, balance and agility to make plays once he has the ball in his hands. While he lacks elite explosiveness and speed, Jennings runs sharp routes and has the ability to turn the cornerback around. This enables him to get better separation than most receivers who have better timed speed."

Jennings is not the big receiver that new Head Coach Mike McCarthy favors in his West Coast offense. But apparently, he makes big plays...and can return punts.

Another target for Brett. You betchya!
