Second round capsules

Daryn Colledge, 47th overall; Greg Jennings, 52nd overall


School: Boise State

40 time: 5.04

Year: 5Sr

Bio: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign. Previously timed at 4.93 in the 40-yard dash.

Positives: Hard-working offensive tackle who was very productive on the college level. Nasty and works to finish off opponents, yet a lineman who plays with great intelligence. Patient, keeps his feet moving throughout the play and slides off the edge in pass protection. Makes outstanding use of blocking angles and body positioning.

Negatives: Not a dominant run-blocker who gets much movement off the line. Marginal skills in motion. Does not possess the height teams want in a blind-side tackle.

Analysis: A coachable prospect and favorite of the Boise State staff, Colledge is a polished lineman with a good game. Can quickly start in the right system at either tackle or guard.

Outlook with Packers: Will have a chance to start at left guard and/or compete for a backup spot at tackle.

What Packers said: "He's got that quickness. He's got very good lower-body strength and exceptional jump, which I believe is about 35 inches. He tested real well. He's got that explosiveness that you need. He's got good bend, good flexibility. He has a chance to play with leverage, and a chance to swing and play inside, absolutely." - offensive line coach Joe Philbin.

What Colledge said: "They told me that I can be a swing guy for them. They think I can play both positions. They'll start me out at tackle, and move me (in) to guard and see where camp leads us."


School: Western Michigan

Ht: 5-11 Wt: 197 40 time: 4.48 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors every season since his sophomore campaign and led the team in receiving each year. Senior totals were 98/1,259/14 after 74/1,092/11 as a junior. Handled both punt and kick returns duties.

Positives: Sure-handed, quick receiver with outstanding work ethic. Fast off the line, sharp running routes and gets separation from opponents. Consistently makes himself an available target and extends to grab the ball away from his frame. Quickly transitions up the field after the catch and elusive handling the ball. Displays soft hands and uses his frame to shield away opponents.

Negatives: Needs to improve his blocking. Not a true downfield threat. Has a thin build and does not present himself as a sturdy receiver.

Analysis: Ultra-productive the past three seasons, Jennings is a solid wideout who has continued to improve.

Outlook with Packers: Jennings will have an opportunity to step in for the departed Antonio Chatman as a return specialist and backup receiver.

What Packers said: "I learned this from Jon Gruden a long time ago: In this offense you want to try to get guys that are return guys that can run after the catch. I think that's one of the special things about Jennings. He has some return ability and he is very good after the catch. He's a very good football player. - Packers general manager Ted Thompson.

What Jennings said: "I take a lot of pride in my route running and my ability to run after the catch. I'm very excited to come to Green Bay and play with a future Hall of Famer in Brett Favre. That can only help me learn and improve the mental aspect of my game."
