Packers signed Tennessee undrafted free agent RB Rajion Neal.
Neal (5-foot-11 1/8, 220) was a pedestrian back in the SEC, starting for two-plus seasons and gaining 2,163 yards on 444 career carries (4.87 YPC) with 19 touchdowns and 66 receptions. He ran a 4.57 forty-yard dash at the Vols' Pro Day, adding a 9-foot-11 broad jump and 38-inch vertical. Neal can be an asset in the passing game, but lacks the talent required to be an NFL lead runner. He'll try to carve out a career as a third-down back and pass protector. May 11 - 2:06 PM

Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay noted Tennessee senior RB Rajion Neal possesses some on field similarities to Rams RB Isaiah Pead.

"Pead is a bit quicker but Neal is a bit bigger/stronger," McShay tweeted, calling Neal's versatility in the passing game a big plus. "If Neal protects the ball and holds up physically, he could be surprisingly productive." The Volunteer offense will look quite a bit different in 2013.

Tennessee junior RB Rajion Neal is doubtful to play in Saturday's game against Alabama with an ankle injury.

Neal is the Vols leading rusher and had 40 yards and a touchdown prior to his exit last weekend against Mississippi State. Watch for sophomore Devrin Young to take over as the lead ball carrier in his absence.

Tennessee junior RB Rajion Neal has accounted for 52 percent of the team's rushing yards this season, but none have gone over 29 yards.

Neal has 356 yards on 80 carries, but has yet to hit a long run to stretch the defense. The running game, along with quarterback Tyler Bray's poor decision, has held this Vols offense back from being exceptional, and it likely will not get much better against a stout Georgia defense. Neal is the most reliable runner, but his average skills don't leave room for much upside.

Tennessee juniors Rajion Neal and Byron Moore have been named starters at RB and S, respectively.

Neal started three games last season in place of Tauren Poole and compiled 134 rushing yards on five yards per carry. The junior may be most comfortable as a receiving option after catching 13 passes for 269 yards. Moore, a JUCO transfer, was just inserted as a starting safety after beating out Brent Brewer, who is working back from an ACL injury.
