Packer training camp opens up on August 1 st and it couldn't come sooner for defensive lineman Justin Harrell. Much of Harrell's first two seasons in Green Bay have been on the sidelines dealing with various injuries. With a new defense being installed Harrell says he's used the OTAs and minicamp to hit the books and learn.
Many have already labeled Harrell a bust after being taken in the first round but not seeing the field very much because of injury. He says that he blocks out all the negative talk and wants to have a productive 2009.
