The Green Bay Packers didn't have many needs entering the 2008 draft, but one position they needed to address is tightend.
The Packers got that tight end with their 3rd round selection, Jermichael Finley from Texas.
Finley is a young prospect, finishing his sophomore season in 2007. He received All-Big 12 honorable mention as a sophomore in 2007. He ranked third on the team with 45 receptions for 575 yards and two scores. His 45 catches are the second-best season total by a Texas tight end and his 575 yards rank third on that tight end chart.
Finley started 17 of the 26 games he played in, ranking fourth on the school's career record list for tight ends with 76 receptions and sixth with 947 yards (12.5 avg), as he came up with five touchdown catches and another score on a fumble recovery.
The Packers now turn their attention to the 4th round. They have three selections in that round.
