Packers to host Missouri LB Ty’Ron Hopper on top 30 pre-draft visit

The Green Bay Packers will host Missouri linebacker Ty’Ron Hopper on an official top 30 visit ahead of the 2024 NFL draft, per Ryan Fowler of Bleacher Report.

Teams are allowed to host up to 30 prospects on visits ahead of the draft. Packers Wire is tracking all the reported visits here.

Brennen Rupp of Packers Wire profiled Hopper in his “Unpacking Future Packers” draft preview series.

Hopper (6-2, 231) is a Florida transfer. SEC coaches named him an all-conference pick, and he was a finalist for Butkus Award. Missouri named him a captain in 2023.

Over the last two seasons at Missouri, Hopper produced 133 tackles and 20 tackles for loss. He also added 5.5 sacks, one interception, one forced fumble and eight pass breakups.

Hopper ranks as the No. 209 overall prospect at Pro Football Focus.

After his pro day workout, Hopper produced a Relative Athletic Score of 7.38 out of 10.0. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.68 seconds and hit 36″ in the vertical leap and 10-4 in the broad jump. He posted poor scores in the agility tests.

Hopper suffered an injury in November and missed the final two games of the season.

The Packers need to build depth at linebacker after losing De’Vondre Campbell and switching to the 4-3 base defense.
