Durable, reliable and consistent, Jake Ferguson is exactly what you look for in a tight end. He had very similar receiving production throughout his career despite playing in a limited passing attack with inconsistent quarterback play. He has outstanding ball skills, including a rare level of concentration to make challenging catches in the face of oncoming collisions.
Per multiple reports the tight end visited with the Green Bay Packers for their local pro-day. As a projected mid to late round draft pick Ferguson is going to be a steal in this years’ draft. He was a first-team All-Big Ten selection in 2021, catching a team-high 46 passes for 450 yards (9.8 per rec.) and three scores in 13 starts. He is the grandson of former (and legendary) Wisconsin head coach and athletic director Barry Alvarez.

Jake Ferguson is low risk, high reward type player. Green Bay could use him for depth this year and a possible legit starter in the future. Robert Tonyan is back for just one more year. Josiah Deguara is still an unknown. Marcedes Lewis is playing year by year. Ferguson could be a late round steal that proves to be the future of this position for Green Bay.
