Josiah Deguara never lived up to his third-round potential, leaving the Packers with a missing piece in Matt LaFleur's offense. They hoped Deguara could play the Kyle Juszczyk role, but he never showed enough consistency as a blocker to earn full-time snaps.

The Packers significantly upgraded the tight end room last offseason by drafting Luke Musgrave and Tucker Kraft. Kansas State's Ben Sinnott would complete the rebuild, slotting into Deguara's H-back role while having the versatility to move around.

"Even at 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds, Sinnott might be best used as an H-back in the NFL, but he's a natural pass-catcher and a physical blocker who could go in Round 4 at the draft," writes ESPN's Jordan Reid.

Sinnott offers plenty of potential as a pass-catcher, but the Packers will love his run-blocking ability. According to Pro Football Focus, he was the only college tight end to earn 75-plus grades in receiving and run-blocking last season.

An excellent performance at the NFL Combine earned Sinnott a Relative Athletic Score of 9.75 out of 10, something the Packers will have paid attention to.

The best part is he wouldn't be limited to one role—Sinnott can play everywhere. While he would primarily be used to block, his 676 receiving yards and six touchdowns last season highlight his effectiveness as a pass-catcher.
