Packers looking at Duke basketball player

It's not clear what position Paulus would potentially play in the NFL, but he was the Gatorade Player of the Year as a high school quarterback in Syracuse, N.Y. He turned down several football scholarships to play basketball at Duke but lost his starting job as a senior and is not projected as an NBA player.

Duke listed Paulus, who played point guard, as 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds.

Paulus could be the type of player who signs a rookie free-agent contract after the draft, an excellent athlete with a football background who is worth a look on the team's terms.
