Jeremy Butler

The Green Bay Packers continued their trend of bringing in small school prospects for pre-draft visits with receiver Jeremy Butler and cornerback Brandon Dixon, on Monday.

Butler played at Tennessee-Martin and Dixon at Northwest Missouri State.

Both guys will be late-round picks or undrafted free agent signees.

In 2013, Butler had 90 catches for 1,203 yards and 10 touchdowns. At 6-2, 224 he’s a big, strong possession-type receiver. He doesn’t offer much in the speed department.

Although Dixon played in Division II, he was invited to the combine. He ran a 4.41 40 there, which was one of the faster overall times.

Dixon had one pick as a senior and four as a junior. He was, however, considered a shutdown corner (at least at the Division II level).

Of the two, Dixon looks like he has a better chance of being drafted.

      The specific purpose of these visits is to get a better look at prospects they think have potential (via in-season scouting or performance) but didn’t get a chance to observe as thoroughly as they would have liked because the players weren’t invited to the combine or the staff was covering the Pro Days of more highly-touted prospects. Thus, you likely aren’t going to see any big-name prospects coming for a visit, the Packers have all the info they need on them.

        I think they should have taken a closer look at 1st rounders, seems to me they need to devote equal bits of time to evaluate the top of the class as they do the very bottom. They are unique in their approach, however, let’s give them that.

    Nice to get the NCAA tourney out of the way, to focus solely on NFL/draft.

    Nicer not to hear Killers, Afrojack, and Rusted Root any more!!!
