#53


As I was writing my little Packers draft post last night I was waiting for an e-mail to come in from the Packer Pro Shop telling me that I could buy Nick Perry's new Packers jersey.  I finally got tired of waiting and posted it.  I was surprised not to find that e-mail this morning either and was equally flabbergasted that it took until 4pm today to get it.

Perry picked #53 which hasn't been used since 2008.  The most famous Packer to have that number was George Koonce who was the Packer's starting linebacker in their Super Bowl championship in the 1996 season.

I was excited to see the Packers draft Perry. Looking forward to seeing this guy play... hoping he'll fit into the 3-4 scheme without any issues.
