It’s a crazy set of workout results for the eight picks in this year’s class.

The Green Bay Packers’ class is complete in the 2019 NFL Draft. The team made eight picks this year: two on day one, two on day two, and four on day three.

However, there is a common thread running through all of these selections: athleticism. Of these eight players, seven had values greater than 8 on the Relative Athletic Scoring system, which compares a player’s workout results from the Scouting Combine and Pro Day to all draft prospects at the same position going back to 1987. Even more impressive is that four of the picks finished with an RAS greater than 9, with the best results coming with the first and last picks of the draft.

The Packers love great athletes; we’ve known this for years. But this is a second straight draft with only one player having a value below 8.

From Rashan Gary being the first player weighing over 275 pounds to run faster than 4.60 seconds in the 40-yard dash to a pair of players running 4.36 to an explosive running back jumping 10-foot-10 in the broad jump, there are some truly amazing numbers here.

A few notes here. Third-round pick Jace Sternberger ran an official 4.75-second time at the Combine, but Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said on Friday night that the Packers timed him at a faster 4.66 number. Meanwhile, fifth-rounder Kingsley Keke weighed in at 288 pounds in Indianapolis, but said Friday that he currently weighs 293. Finally, numbers shown in bold/italics were numbers from Pro Day workouts, as reported by Draftscout.com.
