4. Chandon Sullivan – CB

Chandon Sullivan has the opportunity to become the next undrafted free agent to have a long, successful career with the Green Bay Packers. Yes, it’s only one season so we need to see more from Sullivan, but he impressed in 2019.

And you only have to look at the player he could be replacing this season to see an example of a player going undrafted then having a great career. Tramon Williams signed with the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent in 2006 but didn’t play a single game for them. The Packers would sign him later that year and the rest is history. Williams would become a Pro Bowl corner and Super Bowl champion with the Packers.

Sullivan will be aiming to do the same. In a backup role last season, Sullivan impressed, making six pass defenses and forcing two turnovers.

Finding talent at cornerback isn’t easy. Green Bay understands that having invested so many early-round picks at the position in recent years. When you are able to add talented players to the secondary, it’s important to keep them. Sullivan has the potential to become a key piece in Mike Pettine’s defense this season.

He’ll be a restricted free agent in 2021. That helps the Packers. And they should bring him back.
