Brian Gutekunst’s pro-day tour took a stop in Oregon on Friday.
The Green Bay Packers general manager was in Eugene to check in on the Ducks’ prospects in the 2021 NFL draft, according to Taylor Bisciotti of NFL Network.
The main attraction at the pro day was offensive tackle Penei Sewell, who is expected to be a top pick. Safety Jevon Holland, cornerback Thomas Graham Jr., safety Brady Breeze, cornerback Deommodre Lenoir, tight end Hunter Kampmoyer and defensive tackles Austin Faoliu and Jordon Scott all participated in the workout in front of NFL scouts and decision-makers.
Holland is one of the top safeties in the draft class and a potential fit for the Packers defense as a dime linebacker option. The Packers already met virtually with Graham, continuing a trend of the team’s interest in cornerbacks.
According to Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network, Holland was the team’s primary target, but Lenior and Graham Jr. also spent time with Gutekunst.
There’s next to no chance that Sewell will fall out of the top 10 picks and into the Packers’ range. Holland is super intriguing as a potential Day 2 pick for the Packers, especially considering his versatility, and it’s looking more and more likely that the team will use at least one or two picks on a cornerback, making Graham or Lenoir a real possibility.
