Packers Sign Six Draft Picks.

The Packers have made progress in finalizing their draft pick signings, as they announced the signing of six rookies today. The group includes:

– MarShawn Lloyd (RB, USC), drafted in Round 3, No. 88
– Ty’Ron Hopper (LB, Missouri), drafted in Round 3, No. 91 (from Bills)
– Evan Williams (S, Oregon), drafted in Round 4, No. 111 (from Jets)
– Jacob Monk (C, Duke), drafted in Round 5, No. 163 (from Bills)
– Kitan Oladapo (S, Oregon State), drafted in Round 5, No. 169
– Travis Glover (T, Georgia State), drafted in Round 6, No. 202

Lloyd stands out among the signings due to his impressive lone season at USC, where he racked up 1,052 yards from scrimmage and nine touchdowns. As the fourth RB drafted, he’ll likely vie with A.J. Dillon for backup reps behind newly acquired Josh Jacobs.

Hopper is also a significant addition, having showcased his skills over two standout seasons at Missouri. With 132 tackles and 5.5 sacks in 23 games between 2022 and 2023, he caught the attention of NFL scouts. His coverage abilities in college suggest he’ll serve as a weakside LB behind Quay Walker.

Prior to today’s signings, the Packers had already secured seventh-round picks Michael Pratt and Kalen King. However, they still have three draft picks left to sign: first-round offensive tackle Jordan Morgan, second-round linebacker Edgerrin Cooper, and second-round safety Javon Bullard.
