Green Bay Packers Tier 3 – BJ Coleman and Andrew Datko

Seventh-round picks have to scratch and claw for everything they get, and while we’ve seen former late-round picks by the Green Bay Packers find success with the green and gold, it unfortunately just didn’t work out for these two.

Andrew Datko, an offensive tackle from Florida State, was the 241st pick in the draft and didn’t make the team out of camp. He spent all of the 2012 season on the practice squad and was signed to a futures contract but couldn’t make the team in 2013 either, and his NFL career was over.

BJ Coleman came in and was given a chance to win the backup quarterback job that summer but couldn’t beat out Graham Harrell. In the preseason, he completed just 14 of 34 passes for 128 yards, with a touchdown, and an interception.

He also briefly played for the Arizona Rattlers in 2015 and was playing well before leaving the team midseason for a different job outside of football. Oddly enough, less than a year later, he signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the CFL but was released before the season started.
