For any football player coming out of college, making an NFL roster isn't an easy task. But it's even harder if you go undrafted.
Now in his second year with the Packers, offensive tackle Kevin Barry is proof of the fact that NFL-quality talent doesn't always get picked up in the draft.
Signed as a free agent out of the University of Arizona in 2002, Barry has played in all but two games for the Packers since, including three crucial starts as a rookie last season.
Often utilized as a tight end in the Packers' red zone schemes, Barry is part of the reason the Packers' running game is off to its best start since 1967.
Friday, Packers fans will have a chance to send questions to Barry in an exclusive Live Chat at Packers.com, starting at approximately 2 p.m. CT.
In recent weeks, Live Chat has welcomed such guests as Nick Barnett, Javon Walker and Antonio Chatman. We've had some excellent chats this season, largely due to the outstanding questions submitted by Packers fans.
If you plan to take part in Friday's chat, please be sure to remember the following tips:
Be courteous and respectful. Packers.com will not post any profanity, and chat guests are unlikely to answer questions that are rude in nature. If you have 'tough' questions, think about how you want to word them so they will get answered.
Be thoughtful. Among the hundreds of questions submitted, the ones that stand out tend to get the best answers. Anticipate some of the common questions and try to ask something unique. Chats are often bogged down with the same questions being asked over and over again. Be different.
Send questions once. Sending the same question multiple times will not get your question noticed. Instead, your submissions will be flagged and ignored.
Finally, remember that this is your chance to chat with members of the Packers. Utilize the option to its fullest. We hope you have fun!
