J.C. Tretter is expected to get the first shot at the Packers' starting center job.
Tretter was the 122nd overall pick in last April's draft. He broke his leg and tore ligaments in his ankle during training camp and didn't play a single snap as a rookie. With Evan Dietrich-Smith now in Tampa, Tretter and Don Barclay should compete for center duties. Tretter is very athletic as a former college tight end. Mar 28 - 8:49 AM

He'll likely miss the entire season. Tretter signed his contract just 11 days ago. A left tackle in college, Tretter was projected to contribute at center and guard. His rookie year will now amount to a "redshirt" campaign.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy acknowledged that fourth-round pick OL J.C. Tretter's position is "undetermined."

Packers selected Cornell OL J.C. Tretter with the No. 122 overall pick.

Tretter (6-foot-3 5/8, 307) lettered at tight end his first two seasons before taking over as the Big Red's left tackle and earning unanimous All-Ivy League first-team honors as a senior. Heady and athletic but somewhat short armed (33 3/8"), Tretter is likely destined for the interior line. Despite breaking his nose just prior to the Senior Bowl, Tretter participated in the event. The Packers do have a history of success with mid to late round offensive linemen.
