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.”
