News broke that the Packers have just signed Olive Sagapolu as their newest DT. The name might not be ringing any bells for you, but chances are you’ve already seen him. The former Wisconsin Badger went viral last year after a video was shared of him doing a standing backflip on the beach. So what’s the big deal? Sagapolu weighs in at 336 pound and is 6’2, so he isn’t your typical gymnast by any means. He showed up for camp with the Packers this morning, but so far, hasn’t done any backflips on the field.
After watching this clip, we feel safe reminding you all not to judge a book by its cover. That couldn’t be more important for fans to remember as you all begin to scout out players and really think about who you want to draft to your team. The leanest guy won’t always be the fastest, and the biggest guy won’t always be the slowest! So do yourself a favor, don’t immediately pass on a guy – they might be able to surprise you!
