Green Bay Packers: Ten first round NFL Draft prospects

9 of 11

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.
