QB caps Packers 2012 draft class

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on April 28, 2012 – 6:01 pm

The Packers capped their 2012 draft class by selecting quarterback B. J. Coleman of Tennessee-Chattanooga with the 243rd overall pick, one of two compensatory picks by the Packers in the final round.

Draftnik Mel Kiper had projected Coleman to be a fifth or sixth-round prospect. The Packers, of course, are in the market to develop a young quarterback, after having lost Matt Flynn in free agency.

Coleman originally went to Tennessee but played just three games there and transferred to Chattanooga, where he started 29 contests over three seasons. He missed five games last season with a shoulder injury but returned to start the final game of his college career. He threw 52 TD passes against 31 interceptions in his three seasons at Chattanooga.

“He’s got the arm and he’s got the size,” Kiper said. “You look at him at 6-3 and change and at 235 pounds, and you look at what he was able to do during his career at Chattanooga. I thought he ran a little hot and cold and had an accuracy issue here and there, but the long-range possibilities are evident.”

    Fits the NFL QB size mold to a T. He’s coming off a shoulder injury and was rated 8th – 12th best QB prospect in this draft so as the 10th QB taken that works. Not ready to be the #2 just yet, but high upside. Happy to see them take a development QB.

    Nice last pick to another solid draft under Thompson.

    Congrats Packer fans, you got a great qb in this kid. The city of Green Bay will love this kid. Gives great interviews. A great role model and a great qb.

    im more than happy to have harrell as our backup, but this guy and hill have a lot in common and will probably battle it out for the number 3 spot.

    From SI profile on Chris Polk …Reportedly has personality issues that do not sit well with many teams.

    nice draft- Teddy did his usual great job- remember the old adage-offense wins ballgames but defence wins championships

    So Mr. Coleman, you looking forward to starting for the Browns, Cardinals, or possibly the Dolphins in 2016? Of course you are. Thanks for enrolling in Green Bay’s QB development program; summer classes begin soon.

    Great Draft now here are some UDFA I’d really like to see brought in by the Green & Gold:

    #1 Chris Polk, RB Washington
    #2 Coryell Judie, DB Texas A&M
    #3 Vaughn Meatoga, DL Hawaii
    #4 Michael Brewster, C Ohio State

    Get it done TT!!!

    I am so happy to see TT draft all those players on defense. I sincerly hope they know how to wrap up on tackles as what we have cannot do it.

    What about Kellen Moore???

  11. By Dan A on Apr 28, 2012 | Reply

    Another great draft for TT. We certainly need those defensive players and now onto another great year!

    Go Pack!

    I doubt Dave Zavacki is referring to BJ Coleman when he notes some “personality issues” because BJ is a tremendous individual and role model for Chattanooga and all of Tennessee. A pure class act and never been in the news for anything remotely considered negative. He is the consummate professional in virtually every aspect of life, plus the kids in Green Bay will flip out for him.

    Can’t believe GB passed up Kellen Moore!

    hello gb followed the draft last 3 days from canada.from what i was reading you guys did a great job of drafting plus trading up spots to get the players u need. great job. one thing about qbs they are a different bunch. we have seen a lot of qbs drafted in round 1 and flopped, while we have aaron rodgers,i believe bj coleman with tommy clements who was a qb at notre dame as well as the cfl especially winning the grey cup w/ottawa & wpg where i live will be instrumental in getting this qb to play in four to five yrs.

    For all you people who wanted tt to draft kellen moore. He is lucky to be 5′-9″. Never will make it in the nfl.

    I really wish they would have signed Aaron Henry Safety out of Wisconsin as a undrafted free agent.
