Today the Green Bay Packers have two small school prospects in town for a pre draft visit according to our sources. Jeremy Butler the former Tennessee-Martin wide receiver and Brian Dixon the standout MIAA cornerback from Northwest Missouri State, were both in Green Bay.
Jeremy Butler was a JUCO All American before transferring to Louisiana Tech. After a short stint with Louisiana Tech, Butler headed to Tennessee Martin where he blew up over the past two season. Butler the 6’2 wide receiver is built like a truck weighing in at 226 pounds. He is not the fastest player in the draft, but he could be the strongest wide out. He has been compared to guys like Anquan Boldin as well as James Jones (who the Packers lost in free agency to the Raiders). We are extremely high on Butler and feel he could easily be a late round draft pick.
Another player that the team had in town was Brian Dixon, who was a standout for Northwest Missouri State. Dixon. Everyone talks about Brandon Dixon his twin brother who had a amazing performance against Jeff Janis of Saginaw Valley State who is projected to be a top 5 round draft pick. Well Brian Dixon was one of the reasons Northwest Missouri State made it as far as they did in the playoffs. Dixon is a very solid corner and is ranked as a late round pick as well by our site.
While some feel both could be priority free agents, I could see both of them getting drafted by the final pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
