Jermichael Finley TE Green Bay Packers
After forgoing his senior season at the University of Texas, Jermichael Finley was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the third round of the 2008 draft. After an unproductive rookie season, he broke out in 2009 with 676 yards and 5 touchdowns, while adding 159 yards on 6 catches in a playoff loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
Last season he was off to a great start, in the first 3 games of the season he had 2 games where he eclipsed the 100 yard mark but had only scored one touchdown. Then against the Washington Redskins on the 2nd offensive play of the game he injured his right knee while trying to tackle Redskins S Kareem Moore who recovered a fumble by TE Donald Lee.
Now he has until next season to prove his crazy mixture of athleticism and size can be dominant on the field again. In the mean time, he can enjoy his elongated offseason finishing up rehab on his knee, and raging at the high seas.
