Duke Hoopster Tries Out with Packers
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Now this would be quite the Lambeau leap.
A Duke spokesman said Tuesday that former point guard Greg Paulus recently worked out for the Green Bay Packers in advance of the NFL draft.
Spokesman Art Chase said Paulus threw with Blue Devils receiver Eron Riley during a workout last week on campus.
Paulus was a star high school quarterback in Syracuse, N.Y., but hasn't taken a snap since he was a senior in 2004 and focused on basketball at Duke.
The 6-foot-1 Paulus started at point guard for three seasons before coming off the bench this year and helping the Blue Devils reach the regional semifinals for the first time since 2006.
The draft is April 25-26.
Packers spokeswoman Sarah Quick said the team does not comment on player workouts heading into the draft.
