Rashan Gary’s slow start is nothing to worry about for the Packers

clutchpoints.com - 29 days ago


There won’t be many rookies in the NFL this season that will have the pressure that Rashan Gary will have on him from the Green Bay Packers fan base in 2019. To be clear, it’s not because of bad intentions. It’s simply that the Packers haven’t had a pick as high as No. 12 overall in quite some time, thus there are a lot of expectations that come along with that pick. Throw in the fact that Gary is by all accounts an athletic marvel who failed to live up to the hype as a Michigan Wolverine – and it makes sense that there has been some anxiety surrounding his selection. It makes even more sense knowing that players like Christian Wilkins, Brian Burns, Dexter Lawrence, and even tight end Noah Fant – all fan favorites at some point during the draft process – all went ahead of Gary.
