The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports the Packers "like the prospects" of second-year ILB Sam Barrington.
Barrington was the 232nd overall pick in last April's draft and played just one snap on defense before landing on injured reserve with a hamstring injury in November. We can't see the Packers liking him enough to start, however. He ran a 4.91 at the Combine and is just 6-foot-1 and 235 pounds. Apr 15 - 12:55 PM

Packers placed LB Sam Barrington on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.

A seventh-round rookie, Barrington pulled up lame in Monday night's loss. A special teamer, Barrington had played only one snap on defense. He'll be back to compete for one of the Packers' final roster spots next summer.

Packers signed No. 232 pick LB Sam Barrington to a four-year contract.

Not a big college pass rusher (6.5 career sacks), Barrington figures to convert from outside linebacker at South Florida to the inside in Green Bay, where he goes 6-foot-1, 246 with 4.91 speed. He'll play special teams in year one.

Packers selected USF LB Sam Barrington with the No. 232 overall pick.

Barrington (6-foot 7/8, 246) made 36 starts at outside linebacker in the Bulls' 4-3, registering 21.5 career tackles for loss, 6.5 sacks, one interception, and five forced fumbles. He ran 4.91 at the Combine with a 1.67 ten-yard split and 22 bench-press reps. He will likely play an inside linebacker spot and add depth to that position for the Packers.
