OL Jake Hanson
Jake Hanson made the Packers’ initial 53-man roster a year ago, but it may be difficult for the third-year player to repeat that this summer.
Hanson has barely played since being picked in the sixth round in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Opportunities will be few and far between at center. That job belongs to second-year Josh Myers, the Packers’ second-round pick last year.
Rookie Zach Tom played at both center and tackle during his time at Wake Forest. He has the versatility to play at each position along the offensive line. According to Mike Spofford of Packers.com, he spent time lining up at center during minicamp in May.
Elgton Jenkins also has the versatility to play at center if needed.
With the Packers drafting three offensive linemen this year, there may not be many spots left for Hanson.
According to Pro Football Reference, Hanson has played two career snaps on offense and 13 on special teams.
To have a shot at making the 53-man roster, Hanson will likely need to show some positional versatility over the summer and perform well in the preseason.
With the Packers’ depth across the offensive line, Hanson may struggle to make the team’s initial 53-man roster this summer.
