The Green Bay Packers continue to invite players to visit the team’s facilities in advance of the 2017 NFL Draft, and we are now up to eight reported names out of 30 allowed visits.
The latest is Fresno State Bulldogs receiver Aaron Peck, whose visit was reported by The Sporting News on Saturday.
Peck is apparently trying to make a position switch, however, as he tries to make it in the NFL after having played receiver at Fresno State. His best season came as a senior in 2016, when he caught 46 passes for 630 yards (13.7 average) and three touchdowns (full stats here). That came after a 2015 season that was lost entirely to injury.
Peck measured in at a bit over 6-foot-2 and weighed 239 at the Bulldogs’ Pro Day in March. He reportedly ran his 40-yard dash in 4.68 seconds while posting a 7.27-second time in the three-cone drill (source). With that size and speed, Peck clearly would be viewed as a “move” tight end, who would likely flex out wide as a receiver or in the backfield for much of his snaps.
