Packers Bringing in Cornerback Walt Aikens
The Green Bay Packers have (or perhaps already had) a pre-draft visit scheduled with Liberty cornerback Walt Aikens.
Unlike most of the guys the Packers have been bringing in for visits, Aikens is a guy that’s surely going to get drafted, despite his small-school roots.
After a strong showing at the Senior Bowl, Aikens could reportedly go as high as the third round. It certainly doesn’t hurt that he ran a 4.4 40.
This guy has been making the rounds, though. He has done or is scheduled for 10 visits and six private workouts.
Aikens had 62 tackles and three interceptions as a senior.
The Packers don’t have an immediate need for a cornerback, which is one of the team’s most well-stocked positions. However, you know how Big Ted does it. Best available player (or so he’ll tell you).
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
