Packers get Bulaga done
The Green Bay Packers are well positioned now for the start of training camp as Bryan Bulaga, the first-round draft pick, has signed his contract.
Bulaga, the 23rd overall selection, has put his name on a five-year contract, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Bulaga is the final draft pick to sign for the Packers and that ensures they will have all of their players in camp on time. The players are due to report to training camp today and the first practice will be held at 2 p.m. local time on Saturday.
The Packers started Bulaga out at left tackle after drafting him out of Iowa with the idea being that he will be groomed to take over for Chad Clifton one day soon. The offensive line was a real trouble spot for the team during the middle portion of last season and having Bulaga not only gives the team a potential blue chip player to develop for the future, it also provides some badly needed depth. Green Bay operated without a swing tackle last season and that became an issue when Clifton was injured.
