Quarterback Matthew Clayton Flynn was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the seventh round of the 2008 NFL Draft. Flynn was the 209th pick overall. The QB was drafted after playing for the LSU Tigers.

At LSU, Flynn saw action all four years but started just one—2007, which was his senior season. He threw 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in that season. Earning a rating of 125.8, he completed 56.3-percent of his passes and accumulated 2,407 yards in the air.

Flynn enters the pros at a disadvantage, having put in just one year as a starter. The six-foot-two, 225-pound quarterback is known for his intelligence, leadership and great work ethic. He tends to make good decisions and has a quick release. He has decent mobility and better than average athleticism. In his senior season, Flynn had accuracy problems. He has not shown very good pocket awareness or patience. His arm strength is okay but not fantastic. Flynn looks to be a NFL backup QB, but with a lot of hard work, he could become a starter.
