Packers Draft Finley

by Ryan Peterson

It is finally over for Jermichael Finley.  After two days full of anxiety, it all ended with 91st pick.  The call finally came, from a cold area code.

"It was a 920 number, it was Green Bay." said Finley, "It was the head coach, the GM and the tight end coach. They said 'what's up stud?'  I said nothing, just ready to be a Packer."

Break out the cheese.

"I guess I have to. I really didn't like them, but i do now," said Finley's brother Ketarus Stanton.

"It's going to be real nice to play on a field that many great legends played on. I hope to be a legend one day, and grow up to be a superstar."

ESPN's Mel Kiper says Finley would have been a first round pick, had he stayed one more year. The hugs and smiles, at home, tell Finley, he made the right decision.

"I am very happy with what I have right now. Just being in the NFL Is a blessing and priveledge. I'm just real happy."

His first order of business? He better get a big coat.   Finley leaves for Green Bay on Thursday.
