Packers 2012 NFL Draft – Seventh Round Pick: Andrew Datko, T Florida State University
Florida State Seminoles
7.71 in the 3 cone drill…5.32 in the 40 yard dash…29″ vertical
Positives: Quick and nimble, light on his feet. Very athletic blocker on the move. Good slide and hand placement effectively shut down most speed rushers. Smart prospect who has great experience and works extremely hard.
Negatives: High-cut and doesn’t bend knees well. Set in pass protection is high, and that affects power and ability to anchor and causes him to bend at the waist. Soft hand punch. Serious shoulder injury that required multiple surgeries will be closely scrutinized. Did not play well in 2011 because of shoulder, battling courageously for four games with one arm.
The defensive run is over as the Packers finally go with an offensive player in the form of a lineman. With Chad Clifton being cut, the Packers could use the depth and a fresh body in training camp.
