The reports keep coming of the Green Bay Packers’ draft visits, and we have learned of a third quarterback who has been in Green Bay recently.
The latest name is Garrett Fugate, a signal-caller from Central Missouri State, who had a private workout with the Packers according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
Our colleagues at Arrowhead Pride also note that Fugate worked out for the Kansas City Chiefs, and that he has been connected to the Oakland Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles as well. There are plenty of Packers connections there; Chiefs GM John Dorsey and Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie worked under Ted Thompson in the Packers’ front office, while Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was a former Packer who coached previously in Kansas City.
Fugate was effective as a passer and a runner for the Mules during his two years as a starter. The 6’3”, pound quarterback led CMSU to a 9-3 record in 2016, completing 63.8% of his passes for 3,655 yards, 31 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. He also ran the ball 145 times for 457 yards and 8 touchdowns. He was named second-team all-conference during both of his years as a starter.
Fugate joins Minnesota-Duluth’s Drew Bauer and Temple’s P.J. Walker as quarterbacks who have visited the Packers during the pre-draft process. Click here for a full list of the visits.
