The college football season is heating up and this week is a big one. There are many top 25 matchups this weekend with one of them being in the Big Ten. No. 5 Michigan takes on no. 10 Penn State in Ann Arbor this weekend and many NFL scouts are in attendance. The Packers are out scouting at the massive Big Ten matchup this weekend.

It is not a surprise that Green Bay is scouting the Big Ten especially Michigan. Rashan Gary was a Michigan product and that has turned out well for them. The Wolverines have a couple of monster defensive ends that the Packers could look to target in this year’s draft. Watch Eyabi Okie this weekend and get excited about his potential. The Packers are also very good at drafting and developing lineman. Jon Runyan Jr. was a Michigan product and he has easily found himself as a staple of the offensive line. Michigan has an elite offensive line this year with many of the players looking to make an impact on the next level.

The list of teams scouting this weekend is extensive. The entire NFC North will be in attendance at the game. While I already mentioned the number of Michigan prospects, Penn State has no shortage either. Joey Porter Jr. has the chance to be a first round cornerback in the upcoming draft. Olumuyiwa Fashanu is another offensive lineman that has made his way onto many draft boards. Some mock drafts have him going as high as no. 5! Penn State also has a pair of really nice receivers in Parker Washington and Mitchell Tinsley that will be great to watch.
Overall this is a matchup of a lot of NFL ready talent. Seeing them go up against each other will give scouts an idea of who is going to pop at the next level. The Packers have done well in picking from the Big Ten in the past so it is no surprise they are scouting this massive Big Ten matchup this weekend.
