5. Parris Bennett, ILB
Parris Bennett is an undersized inside linebacker at just 6-foot and 216 pounds. Unfortunately, he also lacks the necessary athleticism to make up for his decided size disadvantage. However, he does have the instincts and heart to become a serviceable player.
He racked up 225 tackles over the past two seasons at Syracuse, including 17.5 for loss. He also collected 10 or more tackles 14 times throughout his career. That kind of ball-hawking ability gives him a chance to compete at the NFL level.
The Packers also have a need at inside linebacker and have very little depth behind Blake Martinez, Jake Ryan and rookie Oren Burks. This could create the perfect storm for Bennett. If he can prove serviceable throughout training camp and the preseason, he could find himself locking down the fourth inside linebacker position and a spot on the roster.
