With their second pick in the fourth round (122nd overall) in the 2013 NFL draft, the Green Bay Packers select J.C. Tretter, Tackle, Cornell.
5.09 40 yard dash, 29 bench, 29.5″ vertical, 109.0″ broad, 7.48 3 cone, 4.69 shuttle
When Tretter arrived at Cornell in 2009, he lined up at tight end. The 238-pound freshman appeared in all but the Harvard clash, catching his only pass for the year vs. Columbia, good for 18 yards. The following season, he played in all ten games, as the now 250-pound tight end generated 62 yards with a touchdown on four catches, returned a kickoff 14 yards and recorded four tackles.
Tretter bulked up during the offseason and when he returned to school at 276 pounds, the coaches shifted him to left offensive tackle for the 2011 campaign. Tretter embraced the move and excelled on the field. He posted ten touchdown-resulting blocks while helping the Big Red lead the Ivy League and finish fourth in the nation with an average of 341.5 yards per game passing.
