The Green Bay Packers have signed wide receiver Jordy Nelson, quarterback Brian Brohm and cornerback Pat Lee. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the signings Sunday.
Nelson, the team's first of three second-round selections (No. 36 overall), enjoyed the most prolific single season in Kansas State history with 122 receptions for 1,606 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2007. The 6-foot-3, 217-pound player returned two punts for scores and threw two touchdown passes as a senior. He was a consensus All-America selection and one of three finalists for the Biletnikoff Award.
Brohm, a 6-foot-3, 223-pound signal caller, was selected No. 56 overall. A three-year starter at Louisville, he finished his career as the Big East's all-time leader in passing yards (10,775) and completions (780). He led the Big East in total offense and passing for three straight seasons (2005-07) and was awarded all-conference honors each year.
Lee, Green Bay's third second-round pick (No. 60 overall), earned second-team All-SEC recognition from the Associated Press in 2007. A 6-foot, 194-pound player from Auburn, Lee led the team with 12 passes defensed last season and tied for the team lead with four interceptions.
