On Thursday, the Green Bay Packers brought in six more free agents for workouts. Here is a quick look at each of those players.
As has been the theme with each week of practice for the Green Bay Packers, on Thursday, they brought in six new free agents to work out.
According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN, the Packers held workouts for cornerbacks Lorenzo Doss, Dee Delaney, Rojesterman Farris, and Ashton Lampkin, along with safety Innis Gaines, and tight end Matthew Wilkerson.
Up to this point, Green Bay hasn’t made any roster moves following any of the workouts that they’ve held, and chances are with them being so close roster cuts, they aren’t going to now either. Instead, they were likely updating their available player board, which is a common practice around the NFL.
However, even if that is the case, let’s take a peek at who they brought in.
Lorenzo Doss CB
Lorenzo Doss has the most NFL experience of anyone on this list as a former fifth-round pick by the Denver Broncos in 2015. In his three years with the team, Doss would appear in 16 total games, recording five tackles and two pass break-ups. He was also apart of Denver’s Super Bowl winning team, although he was inactive.
In 2018, Doss would appear in one game with Carolina but didn’t see the field in 2019. Most recently, he was a draft pick of the New York Guardians in the XFL.
Dee Delaney CB
Dee Delaney is a graduate transfer who spent one year at the University of Miami, where he appeared in eight games, totaling 39 tackles, one interception, and a pass breakup. Over at State of the U, they listed some of Delaney’s strengths as being a good tackler, having solid speed, and great instincts.
In the NFL, Delaney made two appearances with Jacksonville in 2018 and saw action in one game with Washington last season.
Rojesterman Farris CB
Rojesterman Farris is a very experienced collegiate player coming out of the University of Hawaii, where he was a starter in his final three seasons. By NFL Draft Wire, he was called the “heart and soul of the Rainbow Warrior’s secondary.” Also noting that he looks like a wide receiver attacking the ball in coverage.
After going undrafted this year, Rojesterman signed with the Atlanta Falcons as a UDFA, but as rosters were trimmed prior to training camp starting, he was one of the players that didn’t’ make the initial cut.
Ashton Lampkin CB
Coming out of Oklahoma State after the 2016 season, Ashton Lampkin was one of the more experienced players that you will see, having played in 49 games in his five-year collegiate career. During that span, Lampkin would record 111 tackles, five interceptions, and force 12 pass breakups.
Since entering the NFL, he has bounced around from team to team, unable to stick.
Innis Gaines S
Innis Gaines was a safety at TCU alongside Green Bay Packers’ seventh-round pick, Vernon Scott. Over his final two seasons, Gaines would battle injuries, but at the NFL level with his 6’2′ – 210 pound frame, he sees himself as a “hybrid playmaker” as he told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and that he can line up anywhere in the secondary.
Gaines was not selected in this past April’s draft.
Matthew Wilkerson TE
Matthew Wilkerson is an intriguing player from Edward Waters College, where he was a two way player as both a tight end and a defensive end. Listed at 6’6″ -270 pounds, Wilkerson has the size and athleticism that will catch the eye of NFL scouts. However, there is likely plenty of refinement that needs to take place within his game as he transitions to the NFL.
