The Green Bay Packers will have a new-look offense in 2023. It will be the second off-season in a row that the Packers offense has undergone a major transformation. 2022 saw the Green Bay Packers move on from All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams. This season Aaron Rodgers is pending a trade to the New York Jets and Allen Lazard already signed with the New York Jets. As the Packers prepare for a Jordan Love led offense in 2023, they visited with an explosive weapon that could bring another dynamic to their offense.
Green Bay Packers Are Meeting With RB Evan Hull
According to Darren Wolfson:
Former Maple Grove high school and Northwestern RB Evan Hull will visit the Vikings and Packers this week. He kicked butt at the Combine, running a 4.47, 37 inch vertical, 6.90 3-cone. His pass protection and ability to catch make him very intriguing.

Evan Hull is a projected third-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. Here is what is draft profile says:
Compact runner. Dense ball of muscle with lower body thickness. Jitterbug feet with crisp cuts in the backfield. Fluid in tight spaces, making the initial tackler miss, often behind the line of scrimmage. Scheme versatility with the ability to cut back on zone schemes and follow his blockers on gap or power runs.
Vision to find the crease or bubble and acceleration to burst through for big gains. Smooth in the open field with the ability to cut across the grain. He runs with power, dropping his pads and falling forward. Soft hands that catch the front of the ball as a receiver. Used in smoke, now, and slip screens with the intent of getting him the ball in space and letting him work. He also aligns in the slot or even out wide and runs true routes where he’s targeted on in breakers and seams. Textbook fundamentals in short yardage or goal line carries. He runs with perfect leverage, arm over arm, and feet like he’s doing a ladder drill. Instincts and peripheral vision to avoid the nearest defender. Benefits from a run-heavy scheme with dominant offensive linemen.
May not need a runway to get going but often has gaps that buses could fit through. Shorter stature that isn’t reminiscent of NFL lead-backs. Hull is a well-rounded back whose skill set is worthy of a selection in the NFL draft. His utilization as a pass catcher and twitchy runner in multiple schemes is notable and could lend him a fruitful career as a change of pace or fill-in starter at running back in the NFL.
It would be fairly surprising to see the Green Bay Packers take a running back early on in this year’s draft. Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon will certainly take the bulk of the rushing responsibilities this year, however, if the Green Bay Packers wanted to think long-term, it might be something that crosses their mind.
