Graham Harrell to be the No. 2 Quarterback for the Green Bay Packers [VIDEO]

After spending seven games on the 53-man roster in 2010 and five this past season as the No. 3 quarterback, Graham Harrell is now one step closer to starting in the NFL. The Green Bay Packers will keep Harrell as the No. 2 quarterback after a brief flirtation to trade for Cleveland Browns QB Colt McCoy to Green Bay. The Browns drafted Oklahoma State star Brandon Weedon with the 22nd pick in the first round.

Harrell, a Texas Tech star from 2005-2008, is the solid choice to back up Aaron Rodgers. Harrell has spent two seasons learning the spread offense of Green Bay and for all knocks that Texas Tech quarterbacks have received for being a “product of the system”, the NFL is becoming more of a spread league. ¬†Harrell and company at Texas Tech have perfected this style of offense for the past 12 seasons, so why not give the reins to a guy who threw for 15,000 yards in the Big 12 and have a starting record of 28-11 in three seasons?

If Harrell gets some mop up time this season or has to come in for an injured Aaron Rodgers, and nobody wants that except Ndamukong Suh, then the Packers will be in good hands. Plus, throwing to Donald Driver will benefit any quarterback.
