Vince Biegel (Round 4, 198th overall): D

Biegel had a soft spot in most Packers’ fans hearts when he was drafted given that he was from Wisconsin. However, he started out on a very sour note after breaking his foot in May of 2017. It took him a long time to recover and he was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list to begin the season. This really set Biegel back and he was never able to recover.

He only played in nine games for the Packers during his rookie season and was waived the following September. He spent last year with the New Orleans Saints, but didn’t make much of an impact. Regardless of what happens, this was a wasted pick for Green Bay.

Jamaal Williams (Round 4, 134th overall): B

Williams was the first of three running backs Green Bay took in 2017. His bruising style of play has been a nice offset to Jones’ quickness and the two mesh well with one another. Williams has also struggled a bit with his health, but took a step forward in 2018. Under new head coach Matt LaFleur, Williams could get even more opportunities. So far though, he’s been a fine addition to this team.
