Remember the name. Ka’Dar Hollman has been impressive at training camp, and he continued his excellent summer on the Packers’ opening defensive series of the year.
Hollman, who earned high praise from Matt LaFleur last month, intercepted a pass by Texans quarterback Joe Webb. The rookie jumped in front of the receiver to make the play and give the Packers the ball.
It may only be preseason, but it’s these kind of plays that will help Hollman earn trust from the coaching staff. It’s one thing to play well during practice, but to make a key play under the lights at Lambeau Field is impressive.
According to Evan “Tex” Western of Acme Packing Company, Hollman played on 38 defensive snaps on Thursday night. Well, consider that the perfect start.
It’s not often that a sixth-round pick will make an immediate impact in the NFL. But Hollman will have the opportunity to do that. With his performances so far this summer, he’s got a good chance of making the roster and being the team’s fifth or sixth cornerback when everyone is healthy.
