The NFL combine is underway, and with that, the Green Bay Packers — along with every other team — have the opportunity to sit down with a number of draft prospects.

Now, it’s important to keep in mind that just because the Packers sit down with someone doesn’t mean that they will select them or that they are even ranked highly on their big board. In some instances, it may just be a formality.

However, with that said, this provides us with some names to keep our eyes on as the draft process unfolds, as there is at least some level of interest on Green Bay’s part.

Here is a rundown of who the Green Bay Packers have reportedly met with at this year’s combine.

Please note that this article will be updated as more meetings are reported

George Pickens, WR, Georgia

What you need to know: Pickens would tear his ACL in the spring of 2021 and appeared in just one game this past season. The prior two seasons, he was targeted 95 times, catching 66% of those passes at 14.0 yards per catch with 11 touchdowns. Pickens primarily lined up on the boundary, according to PFF ($$).

Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama

What you need to know: Williams tore his ACL in the National Title Game and will miss some time his rookie season—although how much remains to be seen. In 2021, Williams was Bama’s big-play threat, averaging 20.6 yards per catch with 13 touchdowns.

Daniel Bellinger, TE, San Diego State

What you need to know: Bellinger was primarily a blocking tight end in college, filling the traditional Y-tight end role, similarly to what Marcedes Lewis does with the Green Bay Packers. As a pass-catcher, Bellinger still had 95 career targets, hauling in 67% of those passes at 11.5 yards per catch with five touchdowns.

Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State

What you need to know: Olave has been heavily featured in the Ohio State offense the last three seasons. In 2021, he had 101 targets and caught 65 of those passes for 936 yards and 13 touchdowns. Olave was primarily used out wide but does have slot experience as well. He has a very well-rounded skill-set.

Jalen Wydermyer, TE, Texas A&M

What you need to know: Wydermyer averaged 12.6 yards per catch over his career after hauling in 66% of his 175 career targets. Wydermyer found the end zone 16 times and about 30% of his career snaps came from the slot. As Lance Zierlein of pointed out, Wydermyer does have to improve as a run blocker.

Obinna Eze, OT, TCU

What you need to know: Eze has nearly 2,400 career snaps, with almost all of them coming at left tackle. He has allowed just nine career sacks, 33 pressures, and was penalized 16 times. Eze was one of PFF’s highest-graded pass-blocking OTs in 2021.

Eze will not meet with the Packers at the combine but did mention that they’ve met informally.

Cade Mays, OT, Tennessee

What you need to know: Mays has four years of playing experience and has spent time at all five offensive line positions—although most of his snaps have come at right guard or right tackle. At right guard in 2020, Mays allowed eight pressures and three sacks, while at right tackle this past season, he gave up five pressures and one sack. He may be best suited as an interior player at the NFL level.

Green Bay met with Mays at the Senior Bowl.

Abraham Lucas, OT, Washington State

What you need to know: Lucas has almost 2,900 career snaps, with almost all coming at right tackle. Over his final two seasons, Lucas allowed just one sack and 13 pressures—he was also PFF’s third-highest pass-blocking OT in 2021. As Brennen Rupp of Packers Wire pointed out, Lucas’ low pressure numbers to some degree could be attributed to Washington State’s air-raid offense.

Tyler Linderbaum, C, Iowa

What you need to know: Linderbaum has been one of the nation’s top centers for two seasons now and won the Rimington Trophy in 2021, which is awarded to the best center in college football. Linderbaum allowed just one sack and nine total pressures these last two seasons.

Rasheed Walker, OT, Penn State

What you need to know: Walker has 2,081 career snaps, most of which have come in the last three seasons and at left tackle. In 2021, he allowed four sacks and nine pressures per PFF. Zierlein mentions that Walker has had more success as a run-blocker and could play right tackle or move inside at the NFL level.
