Jerimichael Finley grew up in Lufkin, Texas. He went to college at the University of Texas and had a very productive junior season, which led him to decide that he would forgo his senior season and enter the NFL draft. Upon hearing that Finley was leaving, Texas head coach Mack Brown had this to say, "Finley finished his career ranked among the most productive receiving tight ends in school history and handled himself well both on and off the field during his time at Texas." Finley was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2008 NFL draft. Finley was not very good his rookie season. He caught six passes for 1 touchdown in 14 games. He stunk it up!! Finley had a great second season. He was a major part of the offense as he scored 5 touchdowns and caught 55 passes for over 650 yards. Finley should contribute even more next season as he continues to blossum . He has a bright future. Gooooo pack!!!
