What can die-hard Falcon fans tell me about Dimitri Nance? Sounds like he is going from your practice squad to Green Bay's active roster...
The Falcons thought enough of him to try and keep him on their PS rather than have him come to us, so I'd take that as a positive.
True - especially given their depth at running back.

Running back is a position where you can uncover hidden gems. I've never heard of Dimitri Nance, but if the Packers think they see something in him, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.
Running back is more of a complementary position in the Packers offense anyway. It's not like we're a run first team. We're a finesse team, who throws first and then runs to chew up the clock.
