Minnesota Golden Gophers defensive lineman Ra’Shede Hageman

Ra’Shede Hageman - Defensive Lineman, Minnesota, 6-6, 311

Hageman is another tall, big defensive lineman that could play as a 3-4 end. He doesn’t quite have the pass rushing skills as Tuitt, but he may be a more reliable player against the run.

He’s a big body that can hold his gap and clog up offensive linemen so linebackers can get to the ball carrier.

This year’s draft class is supposed to be deep at defensive line, so I wouldn’t be surprised either if the Packers waited to later rounds to address this position. But if the Packers do decide to go D-line in the first round, Hageman isn’t a bad choice for a 3-4 team seeking talented big men.

    Let’s go for HaSean Clinton- Smith. Safety is such a requirement to improve the defense. What kind of a name is Ha Ha, anyway? It’s too bad we can’t reap all this young talent. Tuitt is a monster much needed to be an impact player. These are my first two choices.

      Yeah, I’m with you, Peter. I think both Clinton-Dix and Tuitt would be great fits in the Packers defense. I like the TEs in this draft, but I don’t think Green Bay needs to spend a first round pick on one. I’d like them to go defense in the first round, but that’ll be three years in a row going defense in round one.

      • Peter Maiz

        Well 3 years in a row and another year without a good defense. I wonder.
