Packers meet virtually with Notre Dame edge Daelin Hayes

EDGE defender Daelin Hayes projects as a hybrid pass rusher in the NFL. The Irish used him frequently in 2020 to stack in a two-point stance and attack the LOS from tight alignments. He did well there, too—Hayes nearly equaled his career-high for a single season with six tackles for loss and tied his career-high with three sacks on the year. Hayes appeared slimmed down in 2020 and was listed at 258 pounds, which allowed him to play with some nice fluidity and smoothness to go along with his length and heavy hands on the edge. Hayes will draw plenty of appeal for his build—he’s ready to step in and contend at the point of attack and his ability to reset blockers and collapse to generate some creases in protection will afford him the chance to serve as a valuable role player in the NFL. Hayes’ ceiling, without further fundamental development, is an early-down defender on the LOS who would need several other prominent pieces in an attack style defense to afford him on-vs-ones and wins as a pass rusher with any level of consistency. That said, he’s got a clear role to play and could start in the right environment.

Ideal Role: SAM linebacker.

Scheme Fit: 4-3 under front.

Looks like a Day 3 pick.

Looks like a Kirksey type TBH.

Packers meet virtually with Oregon State RB Jermar Jefferson

Jermar Jefferson has been very productive as a yardage gainer in this offense and is a good athlete with regards to his agility and body control as a ball-carrier. In the passing game, Jefferson is dangerous after catching check-downs due to his ability in space and creativity in the open field. He's shown the ability to chip and effectively get out in his route when looking to release, creating match-up problems against linebackers. In the run game, he demonstrates vision and an instinctive feel. He's a tough runner who uses good footwork and runs to daylight. When he gets to the second level or out in space, he has shown the ability to hit long runs in college, but this may not be a strength of his in the NFL.

Ideal Role: Change of pace running back.

Scheme Fit: He has the skill set to play in any offensive scheme, but would fit well in a zone-read scheme.

Someone mocked him in their draft a couple weeks ago(sorry, forgot who) and after researching the prospect, I have to say that he's my 4th round lock unless his stock rises. Really hope we can land him.
