The NFL draft is only a few days away, and we’ll be keeping an eye on all the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets who are entering this year’s draft class.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, former long-time center Jay Finch has been getting a look-see from the Green Bay Packers, who are are thin at the position after losing last year’s starter Evan Dietrich-Smith in the free agent market.
Finch was a stalwart in the middle of the Georgia Tech offensive line, and had an impressive workout at the Georgia Tech Pro Day last month — running the 40-yard dash in 4.90 seconds as well as impressive numbers in the broad jump and vertical jump — and the Packers took notice.
“In talking to Green Bay, it seems like they have heavy interest.” – Justin Bingman, agent for Jay Finch
Per the AJC report, Green Bay has been in touch with Finch’s agent, Justin Bingman, who says that the Packers seem at the very least, interested in Finch.
The 6-foot-3, 285-pound Finch could possibly step into a backup role right away with the Packers, who would probably look at him as a late round project pick or possibly sign him as an undrafted free agent.
Either way, there could be worse duty than possibly snapping the ball to Aaron Rodgers.
