The Green Bay Packers upgraded the team’s offensive line in a major way as a result of the 2019 NFL Draft. While specifically bolstering the center position, the Packers notably selected former Mississippi State Bulldogs interior offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Not only can Jenkins hold his own in the run game, but apparently the up-and-coming center can also pass block quite well, according to Pro Football Focus.

“Efficient if unexciting prospect with the size, power and length at center to match with a variety of interior challengers across from him,” reads his 2019 NFL Draft profile on “Jenkins has the core strength to handle down and base blocking duties, but he could leave offensive line coaches wanting more if asked to handle challenging blocks in space. His tape against the best SEC’s best teams over his last two seasons indicates an ability to become an effective, early NFL starter.”

Of course, the Packers will still need to deal with the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North division in 2019-20. Though the Detroit Lions aren’t expected to play a significant role in the NFC playoff picture, Matthew Stafford and company are always dangerous. With the Bears winning the division last season and the Vikings expected to return to form sooner rather than later, the Packers will be playing the role of the underdog, a role that Green Bay does not take on very often.

Last season, the Packers finished at a disappointing 6-9-1.
