New, comments

Expect a lot of Rodgers-to-Rodgers passes this fall.

The Green Bay Packers were on the clock with the 98th pick of the 3rd round in the 2014 NFL Draft. With that pick, the Packers have selected...

Richard Rodgers, tight end, California

Yes, the Packers now have two players with the last name Rodgers who played college football for the Golden Bears. Rodgers stands 6'4" and weighs in at 257 pounds. Rodgers has okay speed (4.87-s 40) but good quickness for the position and offers some positional flexibility at in-line tight end, splitting out wide, and at H-Back.

As a converted wide receiver, Rodgers will add some more athleticism to a unit which features Andrew Quarless as its current top option.

The Packers will be up next in Round 4 with the 121st overall pick
