QB Bryon “BJ” Coleman, Tennessee-Chattanooga

Packers, 7th round. Tenn.-Chattanooga: Good size. Above-average hand size. Ravens and Texans have shown interest.

Positives: Nice anticipation. Average velocity. Good play fakes. Athletic and throws well on the move. Good arm strength. Quick release. High leadership qualities. Adequate quickness and burst as a runner.

Negatives: Below-average footwork, but improved during Shrine Game practices. Below-average accuracy, especially past 15 yards. Sometimes rushes throws and throws into coverage. Sometimes throws falling backward for no reason. 3/4 release. Takes too many chances, throwing into coverage too often. Passes wobble. Broke pinkie during Combine training and didn’t work out there. Reportedly: Deep passes tend to float.

Projection: May be 3rd QB on team behind Graham Harrell, but should pass him on the depth chart by 2013. Won’t ever pass Aaron Rodgers, so is likely a career backup. Could develop similar to John Skelton in Arizona and earn a starting job eventually. If pressed into duty with Packers stellar offense, he has the ability to put up high QB2 numbers right away, and QB1 numbers after he gets more experience.
