Round 7: RB D.J. Foster, Arizona State
With their final selection, the Packers add the versatile D.J. Foster. Foster played wide receiver during his final year in Arizona State, but had previously been at running back. Many analysts expect Foster to be used as a running back who can also play in the slot when he enters the NFL.
Adding a young, versatile playmaker in the seventh round would make sense for the Packers. Foster wouldn’t need to come in and produce from day one and could add some quality depth at running back and wide receiver. With time to develop his skill set and learn the playbook, Foster could become a useful addition on offense.
Whether he’s available in the seventh is a little uncertain. Some project Foster to be taken around Round 5, while others believe he could drop all the way down to the bottom of Round 7. If he’s there for the final Packers pick, Foster would be worth a shot.
Where he’s selected will be dependant on what teams think he can add to their pro offense. Standing at 6-foot tall, Foster could be a dangerous weapon in the slot if he can fine tune the fundamentals of his game.
