Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Packers' picks: Round 6/193 -- James Starks, RB, 6-2, 218, Buffalo: The school's all-time leading rusher is a great unknown after he missed the 2009 season with a shoulder injury. Tall for a back but is an elusive, physical north-south runner. Former star quarterback in high school could give Packers offense a "Wildcat" dimension. - by The Sports Xchange
