Title: 2019 players the Packers have shown interest in
Post by: RT on March 29, 2019, 07:05:49 PM
Last year I start this thread and in review it did expose a number of players the Packers ended up with. It doesn't always interest the majority of people because often they are players they have never heard of, but for the few that are into this sort of thing I am posting it again this year.

Last year Oren Burks, J'Mon Moore and Kendall Donnerson were all draft choices that we did ferret out. Add UDFA Tim Boyle and both Gerhard de Beer and Natrell Jamerson who were added during the season and you have 6 players currently under contract from last years digging.

It is early for this process, but this is what I have found so far.

RB
Nick Brossette, LSU
Bryce Love, Stanford

TE
Noah Fant, Iowa
Irv Smith, Jr. , Alabama
Jace Sternberger, Texas A&M
Kano Dillon, Oregon
Vincent Hobbs, Texas A&M Commerce

WR
AJ Brown, Mississippi
N'Keal Harry, Arizona State
Andy Isabella, Massachusetts
Penny Hart, Georgia State
Cody Thompson, Toledo
Alex Wesley, Northern Colorado

OL
Jawaan Taylor, Florida
Max Scharping, Northern Illinois
Oli Udoh, Elon
Dalton Risner, Kansas State
John Keenoy, Western Michigan
Nathan Jacobson, UNLV
Nick Natour, SMU

EDGE
Montez Sweat, Mississippi State
Jachai Polite, Florida

DL
Quinnen Williams, Alabama
Daylon Mack, Texas A&M
Ed Oliver, Houston
Renell Wren, Arizona State
PJ Johnson, Arizona

CB
Blace Brown, Troy
Blessuan Austin, Rutgers
Tim Harris, Virginia
Jordan Brown, South Dakota State

S
Lukas Denis, Boston College
Mark McLaurin, Mississippi State

The Packers were one of a small group of teams at the New Mexico State pro day and since LB Terrill Hanks is the only player with a remote chance of being on a NFL roster come training camp, I would guess that would be the reason for being there. But I have searched every social media platform and can find no word of contact with him from the Packers. He is a player that is probably worth keeping an eye on though. Very productive college player, probably gets drafted in that 4-5 round range, the area where the Packers have historically drafted off the ball LB's.

In digging, I come across a quote from a local guy breaking down film for the Jets and his comment after watching Hanks was that 'he just shot to the top of Rex Ryan's board'. Meaningless comment, but if Ryan would really love him, does that mean that Pettine would also? I know that is a major league reach, so their is no need to kill me over the connection. Just found it a little ironic is all.

Official meeting, unofficial meeting, team takes to dinner, one-on-one time at pro day.

Example would be like the Virginia pro day on the 28th and Tony Pauline's report of the Packers interest in CB Tim Harris.

Cornerback Tim Harris, who performed well during Shrine Game practices, put up some incredible testing marks.
Harris measured 6016 and 197 pounds and hit 39 inches in the vertical and 11-foot-7 in the broad. His times in the 40 ranged from the high 4.3s to the low 4.4s.

After those comments, Pauline noted that Harris met one-on-one with the Green Bay Packers. The Packers have reps at most pro days, but the 'show interest' is only noted if the Packers can be tied to one-on-one time with a prospect.

The Packers were at the SMU pro day, which was noted with the contact of Nick Natour. But the Packers main reason for being there may have been OL Chad Pursley. Pursley's short area testing was very good (4.59 short shuttle and 7.44 in the 3-cone) and his movement skills might be a very good fit in the Packers blocking scheme. Also fits the Packers profile of college LT who could end up playing any position on the OL.   

Pursley is probably going to go undrafted, but I believe he would be a good get as a UDFA for the Packers.

It is Pro Day at Arkansas State.

All of the familiar faces are here.

As are representatives from the Broncos, Titans, Lions, Rams, Patriots, Falcons, Raiders, Packers and a few others.

The Packers were rep'd at Arkansas State and my best guess would be another OL prospect and to a lesser degree possibly the QB. Offensive lineman Lanard Bonner (6'4/ 315) played in the east-west shrine game, so he is on teams radar already. QB Justice Hansen is lightly regarded by us pretenders, but may have a shot as a 4th arm and camp body on somebody's 90 man roster.

Have found nothing of where the Packers talked one-on-one with anyone, but they were there kicking tires.

Thanks for adding on, all good stuff.

That is an unbelievable short shuttle by Easley, he is a player I had never even given any thought to. Might be a excellent UDFA pick up for the Packers and give him a go as a slot WR. Another Iowa player that seems to have gotten lost in the shuffle is Parker Heese, early on I thought he was an NFL player for sure and he is basically fallen off the map. Another one I would love for the Packers to add as a UDFA.

In watching a PFF Draft podcast last night about draft sleepers, they brought up EDGE Ronheen Bingham of Arkansas State. He is the player with the highest percentage of pressures per pass rush last season in college football. He was hurt in their last game of the season and I did not see any workout numbers for him, but he also could be one of the main reasons for the Packers being there. A name worth watch anyways.

Highest win percentage among edge defenders in college football over the last two years:

Ronheen Bingham, Arkansas State 28.0%

Nick Bosa, Ohio State 27.7%

Found where several other teams had visits with him (Titans took him to dinner on pro day), but nothing as of yet from the Packers.

Sternberger is apparently highly thought of by at least some pundits:

https://cheeseheadtv.com/blog/interest-continuing-to-grow-between-packers-sternberger-737

However, the Packers also showed a lot of interest in TE Vernon Davis, going so far as apparently telling him he would be their pick if he was there when they were dafting. It turned out to be a smokescreen.They instead drafted AJ Hawk with their #5 (Vernon went #6 to the 49ers). So, is the interest in Sternberger real, or another smokescreen?

Former CCC and Boston College receiver Jeff Smith has added a third team for a top-30 visit -- he'll go to the Packers this week as well.

This is a recruitment visit for a potential UDFA.

Smith went to Boston College as a QB, after playing QB in 9 games with limited success as a freshman he was switched to WR his last 3 seasons. Measured 6'1"/191, ran a 4.36/40 to go with 4.06 short shuttle and 6.87 3-cone, 36.5 vertical. Tests as a top 13% of all WR's athletically, but production at BC was not eye popping. A possible late bloomer who might be a natural slot receiver.

Washington OT and potential first-rounder Kaleb McGary in heavy demand. He has private meetings-workouts and visits with Eagles, Bills, Saints, Falcons, Chargers, Colts, Cardinals, Panthers, Jaguars, Patriots, Green Bay, Redskins, Giants and Vikings, per a source. Pro Day today.

Danno brought McGary up earlier in the process (pre-combine), tested better than I expected athletically and is a Packers match for OL types. Would not be surprised if he is play at 44 for the Packers.

The Packers were at this pro day and I have been trying to connect the dots to this TE, no direct contact found as of yet. But it seems like every year that the Packers have interest in the Western Kentucky TE. Another one worth keeping an eye on.

No one will ever know if this one is a red herring or not. Some are, but no one is going to show their cards and say who is and who isn't even after the fact. Last year the Packers had Tremaine Edmunds, Mike Hughes, Derwin James, Kolton Miller, Vita Vea, Dante Pettis, Conner Williams and Donte Jackson who were all 1st or 2nd round picks in for a visit. Were they all a smokescreen or was it just a case where they didn't fall in the right order of the draft for the Packers? The truth is probably both, some are used to mislead and other not so much. By doing both the Packers can continue to do business out in the open with other teams still not knowing for sure the Packers level of interest.

Saw him play in high school a few times and at UW.  He was a solid player at UW, he could sneak into the first round, but that might be pushing it for him.

Also  UW S Taylor Rapp ran a brutal 4.74 40 yards today.  That's going to leave a mark,. Rapp is a baller, but that will likely push his stock down some.

He could be a camp arm, but like nearly every QB who plays in Mike Leach's system, he sets the college record books on fire and disappears at the next level.  Maybe Minchew will break the mold?

Agree about the Leach system. His system provides zero training for a QB to transition to the NFL, but Boyle and Kizer are both players added by Gutes and unless he drafts a QB they will be battling it out for the back up spot. I am only advocating adding Minshew as a UDFA, if his arm talent is special than maybe a year on the PS will get him started in the right direction. He is a very long ways from ever being a NFL QB though, because of his college offense.

Agree, Minchew was one of those grad guys who could transfer at Alabama sitting behind Tua and Hurts.  Leach talked to him and said 'You can sit the bench for a year at Alabama or come to WSU and lead the nation in passing'.  Smart move, at least it got some teams looking at him.  We'll see.

A couple of connections I have at ND have told me Packers have been kicking tires on Jerry Tillery.  If they bring in another DT I think that Daniels may be gone this year in a trade and not next year.  I did see they were looking at another FA DT from the Cardinals yesterday.  I'm thinking they are not bringing back Wilkerson.

Tillery is very similar to a young Mo Wilkerson, would not be surprising to see the Packers having a strong interest in him. A very good fit for Pettine's defense.

One of the more athletic off-the-ball LB's in this years draft. Physically tests in the top 14% of NFL LB's. Ran a 4.51/40, 39.5 vertical jump and a 7.03 3-cone. Played his college ball at Akron. Late round to UDFA prospect.

Ole Miss OT Greg Little is in Green Bay for a pre-draft visit with the #Packers, according to his Instagram account.

This is one that I have a hard time believing they really have interest in. His athletic numbers do not seem like a player that would translate to the OL scheme. I won't believe it is real interest until they actually draft him. But then again they did draft Cole Madison last year and he had similar testing numbers.

Agree strongly on Little, but Madison was drafted to fit MM's system and not MLF's.

It's also why it would not surprise me to see the Packers move on from Lane Taylor after next season.

UCF DT Trysten Hill has as busy a pre-draft schedule as you’ll see: 15 visits with teams and a dozen workouts. Among the teams who have brought him in: #Eagles, #Browns and #Packers. Looking like a Day 2 pick.

One of my favorite DL in this years draft. Checks all historical boxes for the Packers. Would be thrilled if he was the pick at 75 for the Packers.

LB Kaden Elliss in for a visit.

https://packerswire.usatoday.com/2019/04/09/packers-hosting-idaho-lb-kaden-elliss-on-pre-draft-visit/

The Green Bay Packers are hosting highly productive Idaho linebacker Kaden Elliss on an official pre-draft visit Tuesday, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Elliss stuffed the stat sheet over 47 career games at Idaho, tallying 278 total tackles, 47 tackles for losses, 17 sacks, 13 pass breakups, five interceptions, six forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries. He also pitched in 10 catches for 176 yards and two touchdowns as a backup tight end and was a three-time all-conference selection.
Elliss, the son of former Lions All-Pro defensive lineman Luther Elliss, produced at least eight tackles for losses in all four of his collegiate seasons. He picked off five passes and forced three fumbles as a sophomore and then registered 31 tackles for losses and 13 sacks over his final two seasons.
The 6-2, 239-pounder ran the 40-yard dash produced a 4.6-second 40-yard dash and 34.5″ vertical leap at Idaho’s pro day last week.
Although likely too short and too light to play edge rusher, the Packers could see Elliss as a potential candidate to play a hybrid role at inside linebacker.

Son of former Lions DT Luther Elliss. Saw some of his workout on line last week, impressive athlete. At one point in his workout he flips over the blocking sled in a drill, don't believe I've ever seen that before. I think he would be excellent blitzing ILB in Pettine's defense.

Former University of Wisconsin players Alec Ingold (FB), Andrew Van Ginkel (OLB) and Ryan Connelly (LB) are among those visiting the Packers tomorrow and Thursday as part of the team’s local prospect day, according to sources.

I'm guessing their will be a very sizable list of players on that are announced tomorrow.

Probably another recruitment type visit, borderline late rounder/UDFA.

Packers have to interview a minimum of 30 candidates.  Last year, I believe they drafted one of the interviewed individuals.  Not it's a different regime, so we'll see how it plays out.

I know this is going to sound like a crazy concept, but if you read the thread you would know exactly how many of the 30 visits were drafted and how many others are currently under contract with the Packers. Those numbers would be from Gutes first year of running the draft process, so we do have a sample of how it may playout.

Has anybody seen where Wes Hills has visited Green Bay? He's a RB from Slippery Rock with height/weight of 6-2 and 240#s. I saw an article from a LA newspaper talking about him. He was in a College All-Star game and really showed his talent and had a couple of 220+ yard games. They ended by saying Green Bay and New Orleans were interested in him.

He was in a College All-Star game and really showed his talent and had a couple of 220+ yard games. They ended by saying Green Bay and New Orleans were interested in him.

Well Hands, I now know more about Wes Hills than I ever thought I would. On 3 different media platforms I could find no connect between the Packers and Hills. At the combine he officially came in at 6'2"/218.

https://www.nfl.com/prospects/wes-hills?id=32194849-4c75-2674-ca97-7b43c0c9ad94

He has a little bit of a checkered past and will be a 24 YO rookie in training camp, Aaron Jones is 24 YO. Did not find an answer why he got the boot at Delaware. In his 3 years at Delaware he was not a fulltime starter there. I see a number of parallels to William Stanback and his college career. Stanback was a UDFA out of Virginia Union the Packers signed in 2017.

Stanback, who was a hair over 6-foot and weighed in at 231 pounds, ran a 4.48 40-yard dash at the NFL Regional Combine on Feb. 25, 2017 at the Redskins' facility. He also posted a vertical jump of 34 and a broad jump of 10-2 while participating in the William and Mary pro day in March of 2017.

My guess is that Hills is going to be a priority FA, I will be a little surprised if he is drafted. IMHO

Thanks RT, I haven't found anything either. The paper was somewhat glowing on his capabilities. I think, but don't know for sure, that prospects put information in the articles about themselves and of course would embellish it if they had the chance. I think you're right in that he's an UDFA type player.

Makes absolute sense to me if the packers intend to let Bulaga play out his contract (to the end of 2019) and then plug in a new guy. If they get their replacement OT this year, they have as much time as Bulaga stays healthy for a new guy to get up to speed. The guys they had in suggests to me their interest in OT is at #44.

Packers 2019 pre-draft visits: Toledo CB Ka’Dar Hollman to visit Green Bay Monday.

Is the draft strategy for the CB position becoming clear? The Packers have visited with Blace Brown, Troy - Blessuan Austin, Rutgers - Tim Harris, Virginia - Jordan Brown, South Dakota State - Donnie Lewis Jr., Tulane - Montre Hartage, Northwestern. All are viewed by most as very late round/UDFA types.

On the surface it would look like a late round pick at best may be all that is invested in the CB position?

I agree that it looks like OT is a target in the draft, which also makes me wonder if they don't see a future for Alex Light at OT? He played some valuable snaps in the final 3-4 games of the season last year. Makes one wonder if they view him as strictly a G candidate?

This is the second personal interaction that the Packers have had with Brossette. With 70 players on the current roster and 10 draft picks, that would only leave space for 10 UDFA's, but it appears that Brossette will be on the Packers short list of priority undrafted players (I am assuming he doesn't get drafted as you can see). ‏

I was wondering when this would get leaked, Dillard is the most perfect scheme fit wise of all the OT's this year. We had heard of the Packers interest in every top OT in the draft except Dillard until now. I know this makes many frown, but he is probably a very live prospect at 12 for the Packers.

This is from Tony Pauline's small college prospects, I was wondering if the Packers would be interested in Trewyn.

Nathan Trewyn/C/Wisconsin-Whitewater: Trewyn had the benefit of participating in the NFLPA Game, but he deserves mention. He’s a tough, wide-bodied blocker at the pivot who plays with terrific fundamentals. Depending on who you speak with, there are as few as seven draftable centers available this year, and a few of them are guards who project to center. The result is that Trewyn could land in the seventh round. He’s presently drawing a lot of interest from the Miami Dolphins, Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears.

He is a very interesting prospect as an H-Back.

He’s a threat running and receiving, but offers the ability to throw as well.

It would provide MLF an opportunity to put some crazy wrinkles in his offense.

Earlier, in another thread, I had said that losing Taysom Hill didn't matter, since McCarthy wouldn't have been innovative enough to use him effectively, unlike NO. Now, with MLF as HC, perhaps we could see something similar to what Hill does with NO, only doing it for the Packers. This is all contingent on him making the team, of course. But if there is a renewed emphasis on ST's, then this guy could fit the new mold.

Tyron Johnson is running some drills orchestrated by a KC Chiefs scout. Raiders, Lions, Chargers, Colts, Packers & 49ers scouts are observing.

The Oklahoma State WR measured 6-0.5"/193 and ran a 4.36/40 at his pro day. Is probably a borderline draftable/UDFA type. This is the scouting report on him from Pauline.

Underrated receiver with decent size and a reliable game. Quickly releases off the line of scrimmage, immediately gets to top speed and displays good timing on pass receptions. Comes back to the ball and uses his frame to shield away defenders and protect the pass. Consistent hands catcher. Knows where he is on the field, gets vertical to high-point the ball and looks the pass into his hands. Tracks the deep throw very well and works hard to come away with the catch. Contorts in midair and makes the difficult reception in a crowd.

The window for teams to host prospects for 30-visits has ended and the most anyone has come up with so for the Packers is 22 different players. Hoping one of the beat writers can come up with a complete list, but the Packers as usual has done a good job of keeping the public from knowing who has visited. For me that is disappointing because the visits are league knowledge known by all the other teams, yet the Packers fans are shutout. In bouncing around the web in an attempt to find information I found it interesting that some teams post the names of the prospects that they have in for visits, the Steelers list every visit and the date that the prospect was in their building. Not sure why they prefer to withhold that information, but hoping someone can ferret out the other 8 in the next couple of days.

EJ Speed, Tarleton State - ILB
Greg Gaines, Washington - DT
Nate Herbig, Stanford - G
John Wirtel, Kansas - LS

Gaines is probably a 4-5 round type of guy, voted Pac-12 DL of the year. High effort guy, think he would be a good rotational guy. The other 4 are probably UDFA types on recruitment visits.

Ka'Dar Hollman - Toledo
Donnie Lewis, Jr. - Tulane

DL
Greg Gaines - Washington
Trysten Hill - UCF
Jeffery Simmons - Mississippi State

Edge
Jesse Aniebonam - Maryland
Randy Ramsey - Arkansas
Montez Sweat - Mississippi State

LB
Curtis Bolton - Oklahoma
Ulysees Gilbert - Akron
EJ Speed - Tartleton State
Kaden Elliss - Idaho

LS
John Wirtel - Kansas

OL
Nate Herbig - Stanford
Jonah Williams - Alabama
Andre Dillard - Washington State
Tytus Howard - Alabama State
Greg Little - Mississippi
Kaleb McGary - Washington

QB
Drew Lock - Missouri

RB
Damarea Crockett - Missouri

TE/FB/H-BACK
John Lovett - Princeton
Andrew Beck - Texas
Jace Sternberger - Texas A&M
Kahale Warring - San Diego State
Irv Smith, Jr. - Alabama

WR
AJ Brown - Mississippi
Jeff Smith - Boston College
DeAndre Thompkins - Penn State
John Ursua - Hawaii


As I noted, this is unofficial. Zach Kruse is listed as a source for the Crockett visit and I am not sure, but I believe that was a campus workout. So their could be someone else who's name pops up as a visit in the coming days.

Had a feeling this would happen. Forbes is a real possibility for the Packers as a 3rd day OL prospect. He comes from the same school as last years 7th round pick EDGE Kendall Donnerson. He checks all the physical boxes for the Packers and was a beast at the D-2 level. Don't be surprised if the Packers take him in the 4-5th round.

Add Southeast Missouri St. OT Drew Forbes to the list of players who visited the #Packers, according to a source. He is a 6-4 1/2 305-pound prospect who will probably play guard in the NFL.
