Aside from having arguably the best name in the draft this year, Crockett Gillmore could be the steal of the draft for a team in the third-fifth round area.

Gillmore accepted a late invitation to the Senior Bowl last weekend where he put on a show. Gillmore finished the Senior Bowl with five catches for 61 yards and a touchdown in limited action.

NFL Draft Scout has him as the 7th best tight end in this class and projects him to be selected in the fourth or fifth round, which would be a great target area for the Packers to snatch him up. By taking him with their fourth selection the Packers presumably could address three huge needs (S, DL, ILB/OLB) and still get a very good player with their fourth pick.

Gillmore is considered to be a blocking tight end, and before his performance in the Senior Bowl, many scouts believed that is where he would make his money in the NFL. However, Gillmore showed that there is more to his game than just getting nasty with defensive lines.

Gillmore could be the steal of the draft and the Packers would be wise select him in the fourth round.
