Green Bay Packers: What we’ve seen from the 2015 Draft Class

2 of 5

Ty Montgomery – WR 3rd Round #94 overall

Although this video is from mini camp, Ty Montgomery has been impressing the Packer’s coaching staff ever since he heard his name called in May. Montgomery has been one of the most impressive rookies so far as his versatility has been noted by the Packers in terms of being able to turn heads at wide receiver and contribute to the special teams this season.

"“In between the whistles in practice, I’m here, I can’t really think I’m a rookie or anything like that, because I have to do my job,” Montgomery said. “But I feel like a rookie when the vets ask me to carry their pads after practice.”"

Montgomery will be apart of the special teams this season and could be the main return man on kickoffs and punts as he has been taking first team reps with Randall Cobb and Micah Hyde in both positions. Montgomery will be the fourth receiver on the depth chart and will look to follow suit from Cobb in having a big rookie season.

Jake Ryan – ILB 4th Round #129 overall

Jake Ryan was drafted by the Packers with the potential they saw in some day being able to stand next to Sam Barrington and play the inside linebacker position. In training camp so far we’ve seen Clay Matthews get more and more reps at the inside linebacker position so Ryan brings the ability to play zone coverage whenever they want to rush Clay on the outside. Matthews missed practice for a good part of last week giving guys like Ryan the opportunity to take some first team reps. Mike McCarthy made some comments on the situation.

"It’s a big opportunity for the inside linebackers, and they need to start making some plays, quite frankly…there’s too much thinking going on, which is understandable…they need to settle in and start playing."

Although it may not appear that Ryan is ready to fill that role right now, his will continue to develop and learn under Matthews, but McCarthy’s comments have to be a concern, especially if Clay’s injury woe’s continue this season
