1. Natrell Jamerson

Green Bay brought in a local talent in Wisconsin’s Jamerson for a pre-draft visit a couple weeks ago. With only 15 starts at safety, he’s still very raw. Jamerson is a willing tackler and won’t back down to imposing players. His 5-11 200-pound frame is not ideal on the NFL level, but he’s willing to play anywhere. Per, Jamerson has 20 career special-team tackles showing he will do what it takes to get on the field.

He may have to earn a roster spot standing out as a member of the third team. Jamerson has plenty of room to grow and he’s aware of that. As a projected six- or seven-round prospect, Jamerson realizes his NFL journey will be an uphill battle and he may have to do things he’s not used to doing.

“Being able to play (multiple poisons) on defense, and then the work I do on special teams, teams really like that,” Jameson said at the combine. “I feel like each team kind of has a different vision or different plan on how they would like me to play. Whichever team I end up on, hhowever, they want me to play is how I’m going to play.”
