The Green Bay Packers held a virtual pre-draft meeting with Auburn receiver and returner Eli Stove, according to Justin Melo of The Draft Network.

Stove, an experienced special teams player, saw action in 52 games at Auburn. He caught 136 passes for 1,186 yards and six touchdowns, rushed 55 times for 554 yards and four touchdowns, and returned three kickoffs and four punts.

Stove ranks fifth in school history with 136 catches. He had career-highs in catches (40) and receiving yards (330) over seven games as a senior, including 85 total yards and a touchdown against LSU.

The Packers could see Stove as a gadget weapon on offense with an ability to contribute as a returner and cover man on kicks and punts.

Stove’s lack of elite-level athleticism will likely mean he’s an undrafted free agent option.

The SEC named Stove to the conference’s Community Service Team in 2020. He participated in the Hula Bowl following the season.
