~The Green Bay Packers have added another QB to the roster today by signing street free agent Graham Harrell. Like Kurt Warner and Tony Romo, Harrell hopes his NFL career takes off following some time in Wisconsin. Romo, as we all know, lived in Wisconsin. Warner, as a few remember, had his first NFL tryout in Green Bay back in the 1990’s, before his path took him to the Arena League and then NFL Europe.

After a record-setting career at Texas Tech, Harrell went undrafted in 2009. Harrell is 6-2, 223, which is perfect for an NFL QB. Both Aaron Rodgers, and the previous Packer starting QB are also 6-2.

Harrell engineered the Red Raiders to heights never seen before, including the #1-ranking in the nation for awhile in 2008. But he was no one-year wonder. He started for three full seasons.

His first full season in Lubbock, he threw for 4,555 yards, with 38 TDs and 11 Ints. His second saw him raise the game to 5,705 yards with 48 TDs and 14 Ints. His final year, 2008, he threw for 5111 yards, with 44 TDs and just 9 Ints. His passer rating in that 2008 season was 160 and his stats were superior to Sam Bradford, playing in the same conference against the same competition. Bradford just went number-one overall in the 2010 Draft last month to the Rams.

Without Graham Harrell, most people wouldn't have learned who Michael Crabtree was.
