After having picked running back MarShawn Lloyd three picks earlier, the Green Bay Packers selected Ty’Ron Hopper with pick 91 in the third round of the NFL Draft.

Hopper joins the Packers out of Mizzou where he was a two year starter. He mostly played the Will linebacker (weakside) at Missouri.

Ty’Ron Hopper Analysis:

Ty'Ron Hopper

Ty’Ron Hopper is what draft analyst call rangy. He is able to move very well from sideline to sideline with fantastic pursuit. He is very capable of making the correct reads when running downhill toward the ball carrier. This ability also makes him a formidable blitzer.

Hopper has adequate awareness when it comes to diagnosing offensive movement within zone coverage and is able to quickly find any receiver who might be running a crossing route. Hopper really does well on special teams especially on punt coverage. He totaled 468 special-teams snaps.

Ty’Ron Hopper was a leader for the Mizzou team where he was voted captain in 2023. In 2023, Hopper had 55 total tackles, six tackles for loss, and three sacks. He did all of that while missing the last three games of the season with a shoulder injury.

Packers Team Fit:

When it comes to the Packers team fit, Ty’Ron Hopper will head into a linebacker room where depth was absolutely needed. Hopper now joins Quay Walker, Edgerrin Cooper, and Isaiah McDuffie.

Not only will Hopper have a chance to earn playing time in the base 4-3 defense under Jeff Hafley, he will for sure earn a ton of playing time on the Rich Bisaccia-led special teams. Hopper can for sure etch out a very successful career on special teams.

Ty’Ron Hopper can very much earn some playing time with the Green Bay Packers and has the athleticism to be successful. He adds to the overall depth of the linebacker room and for sure will add a great player to the Packers special teams core.
