The Packers may have come away with the steal of the entire draft process if this guy can stay out of trouble.  Adam Schefter is reporting that the Packers have signed former Oregon stud tight end Colt Lyerla to a contract.

How good a signing could this be.  According to Matt Miller of Bleacher Report, Lyerla had a second round grade, and would have been a high pick, if not for all the off the field issues.

Lyerla played in 28 games with 12 starts during his three seasons at Oregon and caught 34 passes for 565 yards (16.6 avg.) and 11 TDs. As a sophomore in 2012, he hauled in 25 passes for 392 yards (15.7 avg.) and six TDs.

Lyerla has battled substance abuse and off the field issues for the past three seasons.
