It's no secret that the Packers need to find a pass-rusher or two during or after the 2012 NFL draft. The front office is reportedly leaving no stone unturned to discover such a player.
According to Sports Illustrated's Tony Pauline, the Packers are interested in Praire View defensive end/outside linebacker Adrian Hamilton, a small school prospect who could be considered in the late rounds or as an undrafted free agent.
The Texas Tech transfer quietly had one of the most dominant seasons of any defensive player on the college field in 2011. Hamilton totaled 81 tackles, 24.5 tackles for loss plus an eye-popping 22 sacks. He's a forceful athlete who beats opponents around the edge with quickness or defeats blocks with brute strength. Hamilton still needs to fine tune his game, but his pass rushing skills have teams such as the Houston Texans and Green Bay Packers on his trail.
Hamilton (6-2, 250 lbs) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.81 seconds (1.67 seconds 10-yard) at his Pro Day, while posting 24 reps at 225 pounds and a 30-inch vertical leap.
