The NFL rumors and reports keep coming of the Green Bay Packers’ draft visits, and The Cetureon have found out of a third quarterback who has been in Wisconsin recently.
The latest 2017 NFL Draft prospect is Garrett Fugate, a signal-caller from Central Missouri State, who had a private workout with the Green Bay Packers, per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
Reports also noted that Garrett Fugate also worked out for the Kansas City Chiefs, and that he has been connected to the Oakland Raiders as well as Philadelphia Eagles. There are a number of Green Bay Packers connections there; Kansas City general manager John Dorsey and Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie worked under Ted Thompson in the Green Bay Packers’ front office, while the Philly head coach Doug Pederson was a former Green Bay Packer who coached previously for Chiefs.
Fugate was a very efficient passer and a runner for the Mules during his two years as a starter. The dualthreat quarterback led the Central Missouri State to a 9-3 winning streak in 2016 season, totaling 63.8% of his passes for 3,655 yards, 31 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. Fugate also has ran the ball 145 times for 457 yards and 8 touchdowns.
Another draft prospect Keion Adams, who already had visits and workouts with the Pittsburgh Steelers and San Francisco 49ers in the recent weeks, also worked out for the Green Bay Packers at their facility Wednesday.
Linebacker Adams has the kind of versatility that can translate well to the league. Over three seasons at the Western Michigan, Adams completed a total of 77 tackles, seven sacks and 15 tackles for loss.
Fugate and Adams joins Minnesota-Duluth’s Drew Bauer and Temple’s P.J. Walker who have visited the Green Bay Packers during the pre- 20167 NFL Draft.
