Green Bay Packers Select Raw Cornerback Quinten Rollins With Pick 62

Green Bay just keeping picks defensive players to develop. Not only do they pick them, but they find the raw ones.

This makes the second year in a row that the Green Bay Packers will have selected someone in the secondary that was a former point guard. Demetri Goodson from Baylor was their sixth round selection last year and played basketball at Gonzaga. Quinten Rollins played just one year of college football at Miami (OH) and was the 2014 MAC Defensive player of the year with 7 interceptions. He probably would not be a starting cornerback in the Packers offense, but he is someone they will try to develop as they lost depth in the secondary with Tramon Williams and Davon House leaving the Packers this past off-season.

Just how good can Rollins be, that's probably a bit of a mystery, but the Packers usually do an excellent job of doing their homework before they select someone and Rollins will not be expected to start this year as the Packers already have Sam Shields, Casey Heyward, Micah Hyde, Haha Clinton-Dix, Morgan Burnett, Sean Richardson, and Demetri Goodson in the secondary. Plus, they have already drafted another cornerback in Damarious Randall yesterday. So, Rollins will have some quality time to develop and see if he can play in the NFL for the Green Bay Packers.
