The Packers are spending time with a possible addition to their offensive line on Thursday.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that former Tennessee tackle Darnell Wright is with the team for one of it’s 30 predraft meetings with a prospect. The Packers have plenty of company when it comes to looking at Wright.

Rapoport reports that he has visited with the Bears and will move on to a visit with the Bills after meeting with the Packers. In all, Wright is expected to make nearly 20 visits with teams ahead of this month’s draft.

Wright played left and right tackle during his time with the Volunteers and started during all four of his seasons in Knoxville. He is generally expected to come off the board at some point in the first round.

  1. Given the Bears went through 4 quarterbacks last year, it’s safe to say they need O-line help.

  2. Due diligence for Green Bay I guess, but I have to believe they go TE, DL, Edge or (gasp!) WR in the first.

  3. Makes alot of sense for the Packers.

    Bakh is close to the end, the line has been its best with Jenkins at LG, and the right side has been unsettled.

    Rodgers got beaten up badly his first few years. Hopefully Love doesn’t have to go through that.

  4. Seems like a smokescreen. Tom looked good enough at Left Tackle, Nimjan’s on a prove it deal, the interior is good enough, Green Bay finds linemen in the 4th round…..trying to get the Jets to bite on Bak?
