As the window closes on NFL teams’ ability to host draft prospects for official pre-draft visits, we find another name to add to our list of individuals who visited the Green Bay Packers.

This report comes from ESPN’s Adam Caplan on Wednesday evening, and the player mentioned is edge rusher Keion Adams from Western Michigan.

As is the case with most of the Packers’ visits, Adams is likely to be a late-round pick, if he is drafted at all. He spent his first three years in Kalamazoo as a part-time starter before having a big senior season; in 2016, he started all 14 games for the Broncos, making 49 total tackles with an impressive 18 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks. He also added three forced fumbles last season.

Adams did not earn an invite to the Combine, but had a solid Pro Day on March 15. According to official numbers from that event, he measured in at an even 6-foot-2 and 247 pounds and tested well, with a 4.70-second 40-yard dash, 36” vertical, and 10’4” broad jump. He also put up 27 reps on the bench press and had times of 4.36 seconds in the short shuttle and 7.36 seconds in the 3-cone drill.

With that size and athletic profile, Adams certainly fits the bill as a 3-4 edge rusher. Caplan’s report notes that he took visits to a handful of other teams that run 3-4 defenses, including the Steelers, Colts, and Chargers.
