Vince Biegel’s Foot Could Be An Issue

There was plenty we liked about the Green Bay Packers’ selection of Vince Biegel in the fourth round of the draft.

Wisconsin boy. Leader. Hard worker. Filled the pass rush need. This.

Perhaps the one thing not to like was Biegel’s injury history. He broke¬†his foot during his senior year at Wisconsin and then came back after missing only two games. He was rather ineffective the remainder of the year.

Certainly, we all know the Packers don’t always have good luck drafting guys with an injury history. Justin Harrell comes immediately to mind.

This week, Biegel had surgery.

The surgery was to repair a Jones fracture in the same foot Biegel injured last year.

All is not lost here, though. Biegel is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. He will miss valuable OTA and minicamp time, however.

Hopefully, the surgery takes care of the injury once and for all.

The Packers will be counting on Biegel, along with Kyler Fackrell and Jayrone Elliott, to provide depth at outside linebacker behind oft-injured starters Clay Matthews and Nick Perry.

    Seems par for the course . . . Bummer.

    More than just depth (guys). When to draft guys in back to back years in the third and fourth round, you expect them to contribute starter quality snaps. One key to a packers improvement on D will be Frackells development as well as Beigal providing meaningful snaps.

    I hope that Takkarist McKinley, for whom we could have traded up a few spots produces nothing for ATL. Yes, I know that guy was dumb as rocks, but it is football, not rocket science. I hope, I hope that guy produces nothing, so I won’t suffer for our scouting staff having missed on a great opportunity to fill a weakness with true talent.

    Just as I predicted. It’s going to be injury after injury with him. Bad draft pick.

    Another brilliant move by the socially awkward highly overrated freak of nature

    The injury notwithstanding, Biegel was a good gamble in the 4th round, as he most likely would’ve been picked much higher were it not for the foot problem.
