    Kevin King Jersey

    In grading the Green Bay Packers’ positional units on defense in 2018 , the safety position is right near the top as one of the team’s biggest problem areas to fix this offseason. An early release of Jermaine Whitehead and mid-season trade of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix further depleted the team of depth as injuries took their toll on Kentrell Brice, Ibraheim Campbell, and other members of the secondary. There is little doubt that Green Bay will address safety this spring and one way they could do so is through the draft.And one way to add to the safety unit is a relative of NFL Hall of Famer and Packer legend Herb Adderley.That would be Nasir Adderley, a free safety from Delaware. Adderley’s grandfather’s cousin was the legendary Herb, a cornerback on the Packers’ first two Super Bowl-winning teams. Nasir has been a star in his own right at the NCAA FCS level with nine interceptions over the past two seasons for the Blue Hens.Currently, Adderley has been given a day-two grade from many scouts, but an impressive NFL Combine could vault him into the first round. He started off his Senior Bowl invite on the right foot this week, earning praise from NFL Draft guru Todd McShay as a “ball-hawking free safety.” At 5-foot-11 and 195 pounds, Adderley plays bigger than his size and can high-point a ball in coverage. Helping his cause is his versatility to play slot cornerback at the next level, after seeing plenty of one-on-one matchups as a collegiate player Kevin King Jersey , and special teams with experience as a returner and gunner at Delaware. However, as a pro in Green Bay, he would primarily be counted on to fill the deep half of the secondary once occupied by Clinton-Dix.Although he has somewhat of a thin build, Adderley stands out on tape for his physicality. In many ways, he brings the same aggressiveness that Jaire Alexander showed in Green Bay as a rookie. While Adderley may seek unnecessary contact while taking on blockers in pursuit of the ball, he is a force when he hits the ballcarrier. A high motor and ability to track down runners in the open field was also evident when watching Adderley as a senior.On top of his more-than-willing desire to tackle, Adderley has been reliable as a single-high safety covering center field. His ability to read and react quickly to cover ground and get to the intended receiver is a trait NFL teams will covet. Against North Dakota State, the FCS champion, Adderley’s area of the field was rarely targeted. And when he was? Adderley jolted the receiver as the ball arrived for an incompletion on one play and almost jumped a route in single coverage for an interception on another.With highlight-reel interceptions and an all-around skillset, Adderley would be an excellent piece for the Packers to begin building around at safety. With Josh Jones returning as a potential in-the-box safety Marquez Valdes-Scantling Jersey White , Green Bay could be scanning the market for more of an upgrade at the free position. While Adderley’s level of competition will be lower than other draft prospects in the latter end of round one and early part of round two, his ability should translate just as well to the NFL. After all, the Packers did very well when they selected another FCS safety in round two of the 2005 draft in Nick Collins. If the cards fall right, perhaps another small-school product and another Adderley will be making his name in Green Bay next season. Isn’t it nice when the board gives you a good player at a thin position?"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareShareTE Jace Sternberger was the perfect match of best player available and need for PackersMarvin Gentry-USA TODAY SportsFor the second year in a row, the Green Bay Packers used a third-round pick on a player who had visited the team in the pre-draft process. Last year, they traded up to snag linebacker Oren Burks. In 2019, it was Texas A&M tight end Jace Sternberger who was the pick, chosen with the 75th overall selection.The Packers wasted no time at all in rushing their card up when going on the clock at 75, however, a sign that Sternberger was the player they were targeting on their board as the picks counted down. Indeed Womens Corey Linsley Jersey , the team’s brass expressed great excitement about being able to land the athletic tight end prospect with that pick, saying that he was at the top of their draft board. “He was the best player available for us at this time,” said co-director of player personnel Jon-Eric Sullivan. “It worked out, because it was a position that we value, and we needed to get a young guy in the mix.”General manager Brian Gutekunst addressed the concept of need at the position, saying that the team did not feel compelled to draft a tight end if the board did not allow for it. “It wasn’t something that I felt like we had to add in this draft,” he said. “He was the best player on our board, so that’s the way we went.”The current depth chart at the position includes veteran players like Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis, who will likely do the heavy lifting for the 2019 season, as well as young rising cult hero Robert Tonyan. With that group in place , Sternberger will be expected to contribute early on without being on the top line of the depth chart. As Sullivan described it, “I don’t think there’s pressure for him to come in here and be Superman.”Sternberger, for his part, sounds thrilled to play behind established veterans. On a conference call with Packers reporters, he expressed plenty of excitement about his new teammates. “What better opportunity can you have?” he asked. “Anything, any advice that they give me, anything they tell me, even if they’re being hard on me, I’m going to take it in.”Described as a “late bloomer,” Sternberger started off his career at Kansas before moving to junior college. “I was on my third offensive coordinator at Kansas Jermaine Whitehead Jersey ,” he said, describing the circumstances of his circuitous route to College Station. “(It just wasn’t the best fit overall. I felt like me going the juco route was my best opportunity to get recruited by everybody.” Recruited he was — landing at A&M early on in the process. “Coach (Jimbo) Fisher gave me the opportunity to be the number one tight end at A&M, and I took that opportunity head-on and it worked out for the better.”Now, after one year as a college starter, he’s a third-round pick and a Packer. It may even take some time for that to sink in for him. “If you were to tell me that Aaron Rodgers was going to be my quarterback in about four years,” he said, ““I would have laughed at you and called you a liar.”Nobody’s lying to you now, Jace. Welcome to Green Bay.
