Default Duke PG Greg Paulus considering NFL or Michigan

Here is a stretch or possible sleeper in the draft, Duke point guard Greg Paulus was worked out by the Green Bay Packers at QB. Might be another QB to go from High School to the NFL.

NY State's all time passing yards leader. 200whatever National Player of the year. Had full rides to ND and Miami if he wanted to but he chose Duke. He was a good HS QB.

Interesting to say the least....but I am not sure if he would be ready to play at Michigan after 4 years away from football.

I think incoming freshman QB Tate Forcier is probably more ready to play at this point than Greg Paulus would be.

No way any NFL team would take him as a qb project. Best move is to find any college where he can start for at least a year and showcase his stuff.

I don't remember any qb going to the NFL straight from highschool?? Or did I miss some sarcasm again?

I think people are talking about Matt Cassel....even though he played football at USC but did not start a game since high school.

Mr. Paulus, have you met Drew Henson?

If this guy trots out as starting QB for UM, we will know just how crappy that team is.

It's a very interesting story but what gets me is why would the Packers even give this kid the time of day if there wasn't something that they see in him?
