Packers wrap up 2015 draft with tight end

Posted by Mike Spofford on May 2, 2015 – 4:02 pm

150503-backman-600GREEN BAY — The Packers wrapped up their 2015 draft class on Saturday by selecting Alabama-Birmingham tight end Kennard Backman with their third of three sixth-round picks, at No. 213 overall.

Backman was a steady producer for the Blazers the last three seasons, catching nine TD passes overall. Last season saw him post career highs in catches and receiving yards, with 39 receptions for 399 yards and three scores. He caught at least one pass in every game.

This marks the second straight year the Packers drafted a tight end, after choosing Richard Rodgers last year in the third round. Backman joins a tight end group that also includes veteran Andrew Quarless and Justin Perillo, an undrafted rookie a year ago from Maine.

News now! Packers turn to big guy with sixth-round pick

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on May 2, 2015 – 3:55 pm

150502-ringo-950GREEN BAY–The Packers finally drafted a big guy with the selection of Louisiana-Lafayette defensive lineman Christian Ringo with the 210th overall pick, the second of three sixth-round picks for the Packers.

Ringo, 6-1, 277, had 20 tackles for loss last season. He’s regarded as a high-effort defender and recorded at least one sack in five games last year.

He would likely play defensive end in the Packers’ 3-4 defense.

News now! Fullback first of three picks in sixth round

150502-ripkowski-950

GREEN BAY–The Packers turned to fullback in the sixth round, drafting Oklahoma’s Aaron Ripkowski with the 206th overall pick of the draft.

Ripkowski, 6-1, 257, is a blocker supreme. He carried the ball six times in 2014; three of those carries resulted in touchdowns.

He’s also been used as a tight end, so he was likely drafted for his versatility in a blocking role, and also with special teams in mind.

News now! Packers pick quarterback, Brett Hundley

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on May 2, 2015 – 1:19 pm

150502-hundley-mobile-950

GREEN BAY–Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy has the young quarterback he’s coveted. UCLA’s Brett Hundley was selected in the fifth round with the 147th overall choice of the draft on Saturday.

The Packers moved up 19 spots in a trade with the Patriots to acquire Hundley.

Hundley, 6-3, 226, was a high-round prospect heading into last season. He’s described as a developmental prospect and has been compared to Jason Campbell.

He’s also been described as a flash prospect who shows the physical tools to be a starter, but must develop his pocket skills for that to happen.

The Packers gave their seventh-round pick, No. 247 overall, to the Patriots in the trade.

News now! Packers draft ILB, Michigan’s Jake Ryan

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on May 2, 2015 – 12:29 pm

150502-ryan-blog-600

GREEN BAY–Alas, an inside linebacker.

With their first pick on the third day of the NFL draft, the Packers finally addressed their need for an inside linebacker with the selection of Michigan’s Jake Ryan. Ryan, 6-2, 240, is the 129th overall pick of the draft.

Ryan is described as a downhill tackler and a high-effort defender who possesses coverage skills. He’s been compared to former Packers linebacker Desmond Bishop. He’s known as a tough guy, but one draft report says he should not be pigeonholed as a try-hard player, suggesting his talents go beyond that cliche.

He sustained a torn ACL in 2013. He’s played both outside and inside linebacker. He played inside exclusively this past season.

News now! Packers pick WR with kick-return potential

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on May 1, 2015 – 10:07 pm

150501-montgomery-blog-600

GREEN BAY–The Packers selected Stanford wide receiver Ty Montgomery in the third round of Friday night’s NFL draft.

Montgomery, 6-0, 221, is described as being strongly built, resembling a running back. He returned two kicks for 49 yards in the Senior Bowl, which would suggest Montgomery was drafted with kick return in mind. He has been compared to the Vikings’ Cordarrelle Patterson, one of the league’s top kick returners.

He ran a 4.55 40 at the scouting combine, where he no doubt impressed teams in interviews. Montgomery is said to be a high-character and personable player.

News now! Packers pick defensive back in second round

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on May 1, 2015 – 8:26 pm

150501-rollins-blog-950

GREEN BAY–The Packers addressed their defensive backfield a second time in this draft, selecting Miami of Ohio defensive back Quinten Rollins with the 62nd overall pick of the draft on Friday night.

Rollins, 5-11, 195, played basketball at Miami for four years and didn’t give football a try until last season. Football came easy for him, winning MAC defensive player of the year. He intercepted seven passes.

He’s viewed as a safety by some teams, largely the result of a 4.57 40 time at the combine, but he has the athletic ability to play cornerback.

The Packers picked Damarious Randall in the first round on Thursday. He played safety at Arizona State but will play cornerback with the Packers.
