This will be an interesting. 

Not my type of pass rusher, and I thought the lack of hip flexibility might eliminate him for the Packers board. 

He was the #1 recruit in the nation out of HS so the blah blah hip stufff is bunk. Seems he needs some technique and has to prove he is coachable. A bit of a disappointment when this team needs offense. I do trust Gute

I can talk myself into this.

Where he's going to play should be there talk of camp. He can play any of them 3-9

They introduced him as LB

I give it a B. Gary is a freak athlete and those don't usually make it this far. How are we gonna use him? That'll dictate how I feel about this long term. If the goal is to use him based on down and distance I'll be pretty excited.

Classic Al Davis HWS freak.  Hope it's more the good Al, when he was ahead of the curve, and not the latter day Al.  I'm willing to bet on freaky athletes with minimal college production so long as their motor runs hot, and his does.

Get Pettine and Jerry Montgomery working with this man. Gary was my pick in my first ever mock during the season.

12 sacks as a rookie is my prediction right now. 

I'm on record as liking this pick.  Packers don't often pick poor personalities in round one, and the one knock on him seems to be about his personality/effort.

Interesting tidbit, I kind of like this pick because everyone can move around in this defense. I suspect this was a big fit pick, also the athleticism is intriguing. Having the Smiths there now makes me feel better about this pick. Healthy rotation.

Has a chance to excel in this defense. Excited to see what he can do next to Clark.

That's kind of my opinion on it.  I get that none of the EDGE probably stood out.  Gary has versatility on his side.  And probably upside too.  He's not going to have the issues in the run game that Burns likely has.

Don't really love or hate the pick.  Kinda feel now the way I felt when Kenny Clark was selected.  Hopefully that's a good sign.

7.26 cone at 280 is pretty damn good man. I'm not sure the hip stiffness you're seeing? He's not elite there but it's above average.

He's the only guy who was a better athlete than Brian Burns. I can get into this pic. Like people have said depends how Pettine uses him.. Go pack
