The Green Bay Packers have worked out Duke University basketball player Greg Paulus, according to a league source.

Paulus is a former high school Gatorade Football Player of the Year selection who was offered football scholarships to Notre Dame and the University of Miami, but chose to play basketball at Duke.

Paulus was a three-year starter for the Blue Devils at point guard who was once named second-team All-ACC. He was a third-team Academic All-American selection.

A four-time all-state football player in New York, Paulus is listed at 6′1, 180 pounds on the Duke basketball roster.

Paulus set six New York state passing records, including career passing yards (11,763). He threw 152 touchdown passes in 45 career games, leading his high school to a 42-3 record with him under center.

Paulus was the starting quarterback in the U.S. Army All-American game, also garnering All-American football honos from Parade Magazine.

He has little to no chance. I don't even think he was invited to the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, though I could be wrong on this. He all around game is not NBA level, and he does not have any skill that is good enough for him to earn a specialist's role.

That's practically like going straight from HS football to the pros, except with 4 years of rust. I can't say I like his chances to become an NFL player. Drew Henson comes to mind. Except Henson had more talent.

Let's rephrase this. Paulus does not have "little to no chance."

He has NO CHANCE of EVER playing in the NBA.

What's so exciting about a back-up QB?

Drew Henson II if he's lucky. Henson was actually good enough to keep Brady on the bench at Michigan and he was a guaranteed top 5 pick if he would stayed with Football.

Matt Cassel never played in college, and he turned out alright.
