The receiver and return specialist could be a late-round draft pick."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareSharePackers 2019 Draft Visits: Speedy Penn State WR DeAndre Thompkins visits Green BayMark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsAfter bringing in several big-name players early in the pre-draft visit process , the Green Bay Packers appear to be heading back to their old traditions: hosting players who are likely to go undrafted or who are under consideration as late-round draft picks. The latest such player is a receiver who was lightly-used in college, but whose physical tools have him as a possible late pick in next week’s draft.The player is Penn State wide receiver DeAndre Thompkins, a 5-foot-11, 192-pound player who, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, visited the Packers recently. Thompkins’ career production maxed out as a junior in 2017, when he had career highs in receptions (28), yards (443) Bart Starr Jersey White , and touchdowns (3), and for his career he had just 83 catches for 1,245 yards and six scores. However, it is likely his testing that has him squarely on the map for NFL teams. Although he was not invited to the 2019 NFL Combine, Thompkins tore up Penn State’s Pro Day with a blistering time in the 40-yard dash. reports his numbers as follows:40-yard dash: 4.34 seconds (with 1.53-second 10-yard split)3-cone drill: 7.02 secondsShort shuttle: 4.26 secondsThose numbers put him squarely in the Packers’ sights and traditional receiver thresholds. His size puts him on the smaller side, however, and general manager Brian Gutekunst showed a preference for bigger, taller receivers when he took three of them in the 2018 NFL Draft.However Corey Linsley Jersey , despite not having impressive offensive production in his career, Thompkins has extensive special teams experience, particularly as a return man. He was Penn State’s primary punt returner for three seasons, and he took two punts to the house in his career. He also averaged an impressive 13.3 yards per punt return as a junior in 2017.On a personal side, Thompkins graduated early in December of 2017, and played his final season as a graduate student. He could well be a candidate for one of the Packers third-day draft picks or as a possible priority free agent signing. Fans in Canada are having to pay regular-season prices if they want to attend the preseason game between the Packers and Raiders in Winnipeg.The reports that the cheapest tickets available anywhere are $112. That’s far more than the Packers’ other preseason games (two at Lambeau Field and one in Baltimore), all of which have tickets available on second-hand markets for less than $20.The NFL will also have a preseason game in Hawaii this year, and fans have complained that tickets for that game Kenny Clark Jersey White , the Cowboys against the Rams, are overpriced as well.If fans in places like Winnipeg and Hawaii prove willing to pay more for preseason tickets, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the league put more preseason games in other markets, as the league once did routinely with preseason games overseas. Eventually, however, the low quality of preseason games seems destined to make fans everywhere realize that they’re simply not worth the price of admission.
