GREEN BAY – The Packers’ defensive and special teams coaches met with the media on Wednesday. Here’s a summary of their key comments.
Special teams coordinator Maurice Drayton
On the new draft picks who could help on special teams:
I tell you, this draft class, I’m really excited about it. In no particular order, I really love Shemar Jean-Charles out of Appalachian State. He has an attitude about teams that I really like. Excuse my phrase, but he has this dog mentality that’s kind of infectious, so we like him a lot. Of course, Amari, looking forward to big things out of him, very smooth athlete, very smart, heady. Eric Stokes, if called upon, he will be ready to play, as well as Kylin Hill. Just pleased with that group.
On Amari Rodgers as a punt returner:
He catches the ball, one. Our No. 1 job as a punt returner is to give the ball back to the offense. He has a great idea on how to track a ball. His catch point is the same on every catch. His approach to it, he understands the importance of it, and that’s what makes him very valuable to us right now.
