Packers signed No. 161 overall pick C Corey Linsley to a four-year contract.
An All-Big 10 selection as a senior, Linsley (6-foot-3, 296 pounds) showed impressive athleticism at his Pro Day, clocking a 5.03 40-yard dash to go along with an 8-foot-11 broad jump and 27-inch vertical. Although he's under-sized, Linsley could develop into a quality zone-scheme center. He needs to bulk up. May 15 - 5:21 PM

Packers selected Ohio State C Corey Linsley with the No. 161 overall pick in the NFL draft.

Linsley (6-foot-2 5/8, 296) made 26 starts for the Buckeyes, earning first-team All-Big Ten honors as a senior, blocking for Carlos Hyde. Showing plus athleticism, he ran 5.03 at OSU's Pro Day, with an 8-foot-11 broad jump and 27-inch vertical. An undersized overachiever with "heavy hands," Linsley could develop into a quality zone-scheme center once he gets stronger and exceeds 300 pounds. He'll challenge J.C. Tretter for snaps as a rookie, though Tretter is the pretty clear favorite to start.
