Regarding Green Bay's secondary, daily team observers believe 2008 second-round pick Pat Lee has probably pulled ahead of Will Blackmon as the team's No. 4 cornerback, while ex-Steeler Anthony Smith has outperformed third-year pro Aaron Rouse at safety so far this offseason.
The kid has all the tools, and as I said in one of our recent podcasts, it would seem that perhaps Lee needed to concentrate a bit harder at being a pro and relying less on his athletic ability to get on the field in 2009. So it was encouraging to read this, even if it is a puff piece from the teams' website:
...cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt Jr. saw a different Lee in the meeting room during the recently concluded offseason program, and that bodes well for the former second-round draft pick's chances of taking a big step forward in 2009.
"His attention has been better, and he's more professional in the classroom," Whitt said early on during OTAs. "He had a little bit of the college lackadaisical style last year.
"But this year you can see (the change) in his whole approach this offseason. The way he asks questions, and the questions that he asks in meetings. His understanding of what's going on is at a higher-detailed level. He's becoming a professional and he's detailing his work."
