As a kid, you dream of playing quarterback for your favorite team as a kid. Then, as an adult, you find out they want to talk about drafting you.
The head of Waupaca's own Brock Jensen might be spinning Monday at this news, as reported by Cheesehead TV's Brian Carriveau and confirmed by multiple sources:
According to a source, the #Packers will use one of their 30 allotted NFL Draft visits on NDSU quarterback Brock Jensen, a Wisconsin native.— Brian Carriveau (@BrianCarriveau) April 7, 2014
Jensen put it this way at about the time he found out the news.
Blessed!!!!— Brock Jensen (@BrockJensen1) April 7, 2014
Jensen, from North Dakota State, led North Dakota State to the 2013 NCAA FCS championship.
In 15 games in 2013, he completed 218 of 329 passes for 2,793 yards, 34 touchdowns and seven interceptions - equivalent to a 118.3 NFL passer rating.
Who knows if it will help his cause with the fact he wore green and gold with the NDSU Bison.
