I'm Guessing The Packers Won't Be In Attendance

New, comments

Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III each will have his Pro Day workout for NFL teams Thursday, March 22. Which would you rather attend?

I wouldn't expect the Green Bay Packers to attend either of their pro day workouts, but they should be in the market for a new quarterback to replace Matt Flynn. They'll certainly be taking a look at some quarterbacks during the scouting process.

Maybe Andrew Luck feels obligated to hold a workout for scouts, but I don't see what the point is. Are the Colts not going to draft him? Might they be willing to trade down? If Luck has a poor workout, would the Colts consider drafting someone else? I can't imagine anything happening other than Luck to the Colts.

Robert Griffin III will certainly be a high draft choice, maybe No. 2 overall if the Rams find a trade to their liking. I like Justin Blackmon but a package of three or four high draft choices for Griffin might be too good to pass up. He actually could use a strong pro day to his advantage and find himself right behind Luck in the draft.

As for a quarterback the Packers might draft, since they had success with Flynn as a 7th round pick, maybe they should take another one at the end of the draft. CBS Sports mentions a couple guys who might be worth a 7th round pick: Boise State's Kellen Moore and Houston's Case Keenum. Obviously they aren't great prospects, but we're talking about a 7th round pick. They also graded Yale's QB Patrick Witt as a 7th rounder, but that guy comes with some major baggage.
