The Packers finally got around to drafting quarterback B.J. Coleman of Tennessee-Chattanooga late in the final round. It was a long wait for Coleman. Coleman bounced around to different rooms in the house Saturday as the hours and rounds passed, according to the Chattanooga Times Free Press. Just before the Packers called, Coleman said he was on the phone with the New York Giants, who were discussing the prospects of signing him as an undrafted free agent. I was very stressed; Ive been pacing the house all day, swapping from room to room trying to swap the luck up and having my closest friends here has been second to none, Coleman said. I feel phenomenal. To be drafted to the NFL, to get your name called, I got it put on national television; Im a Green Bay Packer, man. Im going to be wearing that green and gold, and its phenomenal.
