Ball should be big hit in interviews

INDIANAPOLIS–Wisconsin running back Montee Ball spoke eloquently to reporters on Friday, leaving little doubt he’ll be a big hit in interviews with interested teams.

“I know I can help a team win. My films show that,” Ball said, then adding of the possibility of being picked by the Packers, “It would mean a lot.”

Ball entertained reporters with a calm and confident presentation.

“I’m really looking forward to the interviews and showing teams how I can apply my intelligence to the playbook,” he said.

He compared his running style to that of Hall of Fame running back Curtis Martin, which is to say nothing flashy but very steady and productive.

    Ball is a class act…just like Russell Wilson. Great WI Badger product and it would be nice to have him as a Packer.

    Agreed Ed. Have developed a draft crush on this guy. Only question is where? Back end of round two might be a little early. Hope he tests well enough to bump himself up to that type of value. Really don’t see him lasting until the back end of the third round. Just love draft season!

    The high priests of the order of the anal salute now decree the following: Blow mud by blasting the chair with a stinky belch from your behind.
