As the Green Bay Packers continue to bring in prospects for pre-draft visits, their attention has increasingly turned to players likely available in the later rounds or after the final pick. According to the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson, their latest such meeting will take place Wednesday with Wisconsin safety Natrell Jamerson.

A 5-foot-11, 201-pound safety and All-Big Ten honorable mention, Jamerson started 16 games for the Badgers and appeared in 47 total games. He saw his heaviest action in 2017, recording career-best marks in tackles (51), tackles for loss (3.5), sacks (1.5), and interceptions (two). He also recorded the only pick-six of his career during a matchup with the Northwestern Wildcats.

Jamerson also made an impact on special teams, serving as a kickoff returner for much of his time in Madison. He averaged 20.6 yards per return for his career, hitting his zenith in 2015 when he registered 448 return yards and a touchdown.

Though Jamerson went mostly under the radar during his collegiate career, he managed to earn an invite to the NFL Scouting Combine. There, he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.40 seconds (1.53 10-yard split), jumped 35.5 inches in the vertical and 10 feet in the broad, and produced 25 reps on the 225-pound bench press. At Wisconsin’s pro day, Jamerson added a 4.27 second 20-yard shuffle and a 7.07 second 3-cone drill. Those numbers fall in line with the Packers’ typical preferences for his position.
