Pack's TE Jermichael Finley ready to be a stud

CBS sports - [Full Article]

Tight end Jermichael Finley stepped in front of reporters and announced that if he makes it through this season without missing a game he would "change the tight end position."

"I guarantee it," he said.

Finley can be part wide receiver, part tight end and All-World at one of the game's most important positions.

During Sunday's 7-on-7 drill, Finley did the improbable and caught two passes at once -- one with each hand.

He circled to the right flat for a sideline pass when, suddenly, a second ball appeared on his radar. Apparently, quarterbacks Matt Flynn and Graham Harrell got their signals crossed, and both aimed at Finley at the same time.

No problem. He simply stabbed one pass with his right hand, one with the left, then continued downfield as if nothing extraordinary occurred. The play went largely unnoticed by fans, but those who saw it looked at each other as if to say, "Naaaaahhhh I didn't just see that ... did I?"

You did. Welcome to Jermichael Finley's world where everything is possible.

Fantasy Impact: 

Tight end should be a deep position this year, but we all thought that last season before injuries really made it slim pickins. Still, guys like Finley, Antonio Gates, Jason Witten and Dallas Clark are worth early picks, especially if you feel you missed out at WR. We currently have Finley rated third at TE, with a guy like Zach Miller at number-10, so there will be talent whenever you decide it's time to go that direction.
