First things first. This past week we had the 2015 NFL Draft and it was awesome! Big shout out and thank you to dhazer for the special viewing pleasure, without his contribution, it would have been less visually appealing, if you know what I mean.

It was great to see all the informative input from a good chunk of fans, keep it coming!

As I've maintained throughout the history PackersHome, the site is 100% what YOU the fans make it. If you doubt that, ask yourself how great this place would be if it was me talking to myself? Smile

Thank you and keep it going!!

Aaron Ripkowski | Fullback | Oklahoma | 6'1" - 257 lbs.

2014: named All-Big 12 second team by the league's coaches. Played in all 13 games with nine starts at fullback. 2013: Played in all 13 games. 2012: Played in 12 games with one start. 2011: Saw reserve duty in nine contests.

40-yard dash: 4.71 and 4.69 seconds
Vertical jump: 33 inches
Broad jump: 9 feet, 5 inches
Short shuttle: 4.33 seconds
3-cone drill: 7.59 seconds

STRENGTHS Outstanding size. Knows he is in to be a hammerhead for Sooners' rushing attack and takes great pride in that. Carries good speed and knee bend to his target. Drops low and explodes into linebackers with his outside shoulder, issuing a jarring, powerful pop. Looks for additional work after making first contact. Also took snaps as an in-line tight end.

WEAKNESSES Will duck his head before contact, briefly losing sight of his target. Leans into his block prematurely at times losing power and leverage. Hands must improve in both sustaining and delivering a punch. Used very sparingly as a pass-catcher and appears to be a one-trick pony.

DRAFT PROJECTION Round 7 or priority free agent
BOTTOM LINE Old-school blocking back who will have a hit or two each game that wows the crowd and gets his teammates fired up. He often charges in head-first and with a lowered head, so his success rate can vary greatly from game to game. Lack of pass-catching background hurts his chances.
