Friday was the first look the Green Bay Packers got at rookie running back John Crockett.
He had been sidelined since June with a sprained ankle and did not pass his physical when camp opened.
Now, if you’re saying, “Who the hell is John Crockett?” that’s just fine. He’s another one of Big Ted’s undrafted finds, so you shouldn’t be expected to know him just yet.
He does have a legitimate chance at making the team, however.
If the Packers keep a back behind Eddie Lacy and James Starks, which they did last year with DuJuan Harris, it could be this guy. Although he’ll have to beat out one of our favorite players from last year’s training camp, Rajion Neal.
Crockett played at North Dakota State, a subdivision school, but ran for 1,994 yards in 2014. That was one of three seasons he had of over 1,000 yards rushing and he averaged a gaudy 5.7 yards per carry as a collegian.
That’s not too shabby.
Wonder what kind of speed the guy has?
Check YouTube for him against Iowa state last year 80 yard TD.
Watched him play for NDSU and he is a class act all the way. He has good speed, ability to cut, knows how to protect the ball, and he can also block. All around great team player.
A lot of potential from John Crockett we need him to win the 2016 Super Bowl.
Go John Crockett. Came here to Lambeau to see you play tonight. Make your luck, John. And make it good luck. Your big day may be just around the corner.
A lot of potential young blood that is what we need to win this year.
