Though the wait lasted longer than expected, the team did land one of the rookie classís top prospects at the position, selecting Texas A&Mís Jace Sternberger with the 75th overall pick.Though not nearly as heralded as fellow 2019 draft prospects T.J. Hockenson, Noah Fant and others, Sternberger exceeded all of them as a receiver at the college level, averaging a remarkable 17.3 yards per catch during his final season at Texas A&M. Sternberger totaled 832 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns that year, easily outpacing the production of the tight ends selected ahead of him. Much of Sternbergerís damage came after the catch and defenders generally have a hard time bringing him to the turf. In that sense, Sternberger ranks as perhaps the best pure pass catcher at his position in the draft.Yet unlike some of his fellow rookie tight ends, Sternberger lags behind as an in-line blocker. Texas A&M frequently lined up Sternberger out wide or on the wing, limiting his exposure to pass rushers. He might never develop the blocking skills or functional strength to operate as a Y tight end, a role still unfilled in Matt LaFleurís offense. And despite Sternbergerís robust receiving totals, he doesnít run particularly precise routes and will have some trouble releasing at the line of scrimmage early in his career. Accordingly, Sternberger profiles more as a ďmoveĒ tight end at the NFL level.And that presents an interesting dilemma for the Packers. Jimmy Graham, the teamís high-profile addition last offseason, ostensibly fills that role already. While few tight ends make significant Year 1 impacts, the overlap between Graham and Sternbergerís skill sets could make it difficult for LaFleur to consistently get them both on the field at the same time. Granted, that problem might only last for one season -- Grahamís contract and declining athleticism make him a possible if not likely release candidate next offseason -- but it still could inhibit Sternbergerís development in the short run.Even so Randall Cobb Color Rush Jersey , Green Bay spent the previous three offseasons settling for short-term solutions at tight end. Sternberger, even with his faults, offers a shot at stability and upside at the position. The 11-man class is now under contract, with one swap from the list APC compiled from previous reporting." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteAcme Packing Companya Green Bay Packers communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsPackersOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football Advicethe list APC compiled from previous reporting.CDTShareTweetShareSharePackers announce 2019 UDFA signings, leaving roster at 88 before rookie campMark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsAfter much speculation and reporting, itís finally official: the Green Bay Packers have settled on their initial class of undrafted free agents. Eleven players signed with the team on Friday morning in advance of the first practice of rookie minicamp, and the team announced the signings in a press release.Here is the list of players who have officially signed:Manny Wilkins, QB, Arizona StateMatt Eaton, WR, Iowa StateDavis Koppenhaver, TE, DukeYosh Nijman, OT, Virginia TechLarry Williams, OL, Oklahoma StateRandy Ramsey, EDGE https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Corey-Linsley-Jersey , ArkansasGreg Roberts, EDGE, BaylorCurtis Bolton, ILB, OklahomaKabion Ento, CB, ColoradoJavien Hamilton, CB, Ole MissNydair Rouse, CB, West ChesterThis list is the same length as our list of players reportedly signing with the team following the 2019 NFL Draft, but there is one swap here. Early reporting had North Texas cornerback Nate Brooks as a signing and Rouse as a tryout player; however, Rouse is on this list as a confirmed signing, while Brooks is not. It appears that Brooks changed his mind and decided to sign with the Arizona Cardinals instead of the Packers ó he retweeted this tweet about an hour before the Packers announced the UDFA group.As a result of these signings, the Packersí 90-man roster officially sits at 88 players, a number that includes the four selections from the 2019 NFL Draft who have signed their rookie contracts already and the four who remained unsigned at the present time. That means that there are two slots potentially available for tryout players this weekend. Stay tuned for practices Friday and Saturday and keep an eye on Mondayís transaction report to see if any of those players do indeed end up signing contracts with the team.
