Packers Select LS Hunter Bradley in 2018 NFL Draft, Round Seven

With their second of three seventh-round picks, the Green Bay Packers finally -- hopefully -- solved their long-snapper dilemma by taking Hunter Bradley at No. 239, from Mississippi State.

Measureables/Combine

6-3, 241 pounds, 4.78 40 yard dash, 29" vertical jump, 104" broad jump, 4.44 20-yard shuttle, 7.43 three-cone.

Career Notes: 

Bradley came to Mississippi State in 2014 as a tight end, playing in just one game. He missed all of 2016 after being converted to long-snapper in 2015 before being drafted by the Packers in the seventh round. Most long-snappers aren't exactly hot commodities in terms of draft stock, but the Packers evidently feel he's going to be a solution.

Scouting Report: 

DraftScout.com: There's no viable scouting reports online of Bradley. Have to think the Packers feel a lot better about him than most do.

Commentary: 

Brett Goode, Derek Hart, Taybor Pepper; whatever. Hopefully, now, the Packers will have a little more stability on their roster with the selection of Bradley.

While there may not be much information available on Bradley, the hope is that he'll be able to be the remedy to the Packers' long-snapping woes that have plagued them for the last two seasons.

"We snapped him up". Yeah, we have to take the 'long' view on him.

Ok, draft is about over. CB was addressed well. No need for another free agent. No edge rusher to fill that need. Three low draft pick WR's. Who knows if that will pan out. Last years didn't work out. One OL. Not sure how that will work out. I consider round five and beyond as low probability. I actually like the punter and long snapper. They may be better and competition at the worst.

So BG should look at a vet OL free agent to provide injury depth. And sweep the FA for edge and WR depth.

Could Clark be moving to a TE type role perhaps? I think they must like Byrd.

As far as our LS goes, he is actually a former TE. More importantly, he is a reasonable athlete who should be able to contribute on special teams. Goode was great but has had zero special team value for years.

Probably drafted him to give Brett Goode some "camp competition..."

Goode is not on the roster. There is a street LS currently signed. Maybe they will compete. One way or another, we need a settled LS who can be on ST in other roles and have a decent chance of staying healthy.

Maybe, I'm the only guy who finds this funny but I was reading up on this guy last night, and one of the things that came up was...he has a significant injury history.

We draft a LS which is bizarre all by itself, but to learn we drafted an injury prone LS? That's just drop dead hilarious.
