Round 4: Arthur Lynch, Tight End, Georgia

With the uncertainty of Jermichael Finley’s future in Green Bay, tight end is definitely a huge need going into the draft this year.

Lynch is a tough player that really excels as in-line blocker. Unlike top prospects, Eric Ebron and Jace Amaro, Lynch is an excellent run blocker, but he lacks the elite athleticism that can create separation from defenders in the open field.

Lynch doesn’t have blazing speed (4.82), but he offers a big target (6-5, 254) over the middle of the field and in the red zone. He has soft hands, recording 30 receptions for 459 yards and five touchdowns as a senior in 2013. He’s a reliable receiver that will surprise some people with his ability to make a play on the ball.

Lynch is a balanced tight end that would be a good addition alongside an improved Andrew Quarless at the position. He also fits a Packers team that has made the running game more of a priority on offense with Eddie Lacy in the backfield.
