Scouting Report: Forrest Gregg

The scouting report on SMU tackle Forrest Gregg on view at the Packer Hall of Fame was filed by Packers’ Hall of Fame guard Mike Michalske during Gregg’s senior season and was very frugal in its description. Michalske, then the line coach for the University of Texas, wrote:

Best all around tackle in our conference

Aggressive

Strong

Rugged

Big Enough

I recommend

Michalske also noted that Gregg had average speed and his military status was unknown. Indeed, Gregg would miss the 1957 season due to a military obligation. Although not long on the adjectives, Michalske nailed it in his report, as the best all-around tackle in the Southwest Conference became the best all-around tackle in the NFL for a decade plus.
