An NFC scout likens Packers OLB Nick Perry to former first-round bust Vernon Gholston.
The Packers' first-round pick, Perry suffered through a rookie campaign marred by injury and inconsistency as he made the switch from end to outside linebacker. "When I saw Nick, I saw more of a Vernon Gholston," the scout said. "(Perry) had a great (Combine), but (he's) not a consistently explosive athlete. ... He never showed that kind of 'juice' off the edge to really threaten. So I kind of worry about that." Perry's rookie year was hardly blockbuster, but his two sacks in six games are already two more than Gholston notched his entire career. The Pack need Perry to step up in 2013, but it's far too early to declare him a bust.
