So apparently Justin Harrell is thinking that his career might be over. If that is the case, might he be THE WORST first round draft pick in Packers history? I mean, we're talking Tony Mandarich bust-worthiness here. Just when Ted Thompson was beginning to earn a smiggen of approval from me due to his selections in this previous spring's draft, Mr. Harrell again goes on the injured list followed by the latest news that it might be career ending. Now to reiterate what I have already been over in previous years, I have nothing against Justin himself. The fact is that this guy hardly played in college and wasn't projected by anyone as 1st round worthy mainly due to his injury riddled college "career", yet Ted thought he was going to be smarter than everyone else (shocking) and drafted Harrell thinking that he was going to be a steal because he was simply overlooked due to his injury history. Oh how wrong he was. It looks like Harrell's phat contract got the Pack 34 total tackles......and I doubt if these were all solo. I don't know why I'm posting regarding the issue. I guess I've just had a pent up frustration from the very moment that Harrell's name was announced at the podium and not even Mel Kiper Jr. himself knew what to say (cue in sounds of shuffling papers in the background). So if Harrell truly is done, which pick was worse....Justin Harrell or Tony Mandarich?
