Anonymous NFL scouts shredded former Oregon TE Colt Lyerla, a Packers' UDFA signing, prior to the draft.
"Wouldn't touch him. He's off our board," one scout said. Another commented: "Just a real nightmare [off-the-field]. Is he going to be the Aaron Hernandez kind of player, a first-round talent that somebody gets in the fourth round? Colt quit. Aaron played. It's hard to justify all the quitting." The Packers signed Lyerla on Monday, so they clearly don't employ the scout that said: "I wouldn't sign him. I wouldn't do that to my owner." A fourth scout said: "Kid's a mess. He is probably one of the worst kids in this draft. He screwed up everything. Drugs. Quitting. You name it, it's happened. I would never trust him. I couldn't imagine anybody taking him with those credentials. No way." Coach Mike McCarthy has his work cut out for him, though Lyerla has All-Pro talent if Green Bay can get his head screwed on straight. May 21 - 10:17 PM
