Rookie RB Starks Ready to Go for Minicamp

The GB Post Gazette reports that rookie James Starks says he’s ready to go for minicamp, which kicked off today:

Packers rookie James Starks set a University of Buffalo career record with 3,140 rushing yards and 34 touchdowns without playing a single down of his senior season. He was diagnosed with a torn labrum in August and missed the season before being drafted by the Packers in the sixth round of April’s draft. Starks missed portions of the OTA practices with a hamstring injury. He was on the field Wednesday and said he is 100 percent healthy for the three-day mandatory minicamp starting today. “Basically it is (an opportunity missed),” Starks said. “You can’t make the team in the tub. I got back as soon as I can and I’m doing good.”

    I had this kid as the sleeper of the draft in Feb and when the Packers took him I took the perverbial fall off my chair.(espn draft chat)
    This guy has the “IT FACTOR” and will help us in several things.It will be a great feeling as we watch a Packer RB being the talk of the NFL by week four,runs,catches and returns.It will be exciting.
    So you all should say good-bye to Jackson.
