The Green Bay Packers met with a tight end prospect that looks like an ideal fit in Matt LaFleur’s offense.

According to Justin Melo of The Draft Network, the Packers met virtually with Notre Dame tight end Tommy Tremble, who fits the “F” tight end mold that LaFleur and the Packers offense prefer.

Over the last two seasons, Tremble caught 35 passes for 401 yards and four touchdowns, and he was widely praised for his work as a blocker in Notre Dame’s scheme.

Pro Football Focus considers Tremble to be a Kyle Juszcyzk-like player, with versatile blocking ability and untapped potential as a receiver. In fact, his breakdown sounds a lot like Josiah Deguara, the Packers’ third-round pick in 2020.

From PFF: “Standing a meager 6-foot-4 and 242 pounds, there was not a better run-blocking tight end in all of football last year. He blocks like his life depends on it snap after snap. Notre Dame used him all over the formation, and he continuously got the job done. Pair that with legit speed and you’ve got the makings of an interesting prospect. Because of that athletic combination, any team that uses a fullback in its offense should have him right at the top of their fullback rankings.”

The Packers have drafted a tight end in the third round of each of the last two drafts, first with Jace Sternberger in 2019 and again with Deguara last year. Tremble might be redundant on the Packers roster, especially with Deguara coming back from a knee injury and the late-season emergence of Dominique Dafney, but the Packers clearly value having as much versatile talent at tight end as possible, given the importance of tight ends in LaFleur’s scheme.

Tremble might be the next tight end the Packers target in the draft.

From his profile at The Draft Network: “Tremble is a plus athlete who offers the long speed and agility to be dynamic as a pass-catcher, but his production to this point has yet to make the leap that you’d want to see to feel confident that he’s going to develop into an upper-level tight end at some point.”
