Packers invest in Cal tight end Richard Rodgers

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on May 9, 2014 – 10:16 pm

140509-rodgers-blog-300GREEN BAY–Richard Rodgers is a tight end loaded with upside, and he’ll have a chance to develop his talents in an offense famous for developing tight ends.

Rodgers, 6-4, 257, made a position switch from tight end to wide receiver while at California. He made the move seamlessly enough to vault into the third round of the NFL draft, but as a tight end. Rodgers was selected by the Packers on Thursday night with the 98th overall pick, the Packers’ second of two third-round picks and the team’s final pick of the second day of the draft.

“His father is the special teams coach of the Carolina Panthers. Played wide receiver at 245 pounds last season. Was a 270-pound blocking tight end the year before. Shows flashes but he’s green as grass. Has skill but needs time,” packers.com draft analyst Tony Pauline said of Rodgers.

Packers.com has provided a full report on the third round.
