It's official, David Clowney is a Packer

Former Virginia Tech Hokie wide reciever, David Clowney, became the first draft pick by the Green Bay Packers to sign his rookie contract. The contract was annouced on the team's official page, but the details of the deal have yet to be released.

Clowney, who was drafted in the fifth-round, has been impressive so far this offseason and it was clear the Packers wanted to lock him up. His agent, Brian Mackler, claimed the deal was for four-years. That is the longest contract a third-round pick or later can receive and will keep him from becoming an unrestricted free agent until after his third season.

Clowney, a former track star, is a burner with huge play making ability and he should make a great duo with Brett Favre in the "Frozen Tundra". Expect him to get a lot of play also, because it's not like the Packers have a lot of receivers in front of him, Donald Driver and Greg Jennings are the only two that come to mind. I think he's going to turn out to be a steal, watch out for him, he's a good one.
