Damarious Randall

When the Green Bay Packers draft, they generally believe in taking the best player available. And for them this year, that player was Damarious Randall or they actually needed a defensive back. So they took him with the No. 30 overall pick and moved him to corner from safety in college.

And from the looks of things in training camp, it looks like it’s going to be a learning process for Randall. But that learning process is against receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobby and quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Randall has gotten better and made his plays but his position coach, Mike Whitt, wants consistency from him.

He told Packersnews.com, “It’s not a one-for-one trade. That’s not good enough. If they throw 10 deep balls, and they catch three of them and you defend seven of them, you had a bad day. You have to understand that you can’t give up deep balls, you can’t give up touchdowns. You have to just play very, very solid, which he understands that.”
