Undrafted free agents 2014: Green Bay Packers sign Adrian Hubbard


There were a lot of players, good ones, that did not have their names called during the 2014 NFL Draft, and one of them was former Alabama Crimson Tide linebacker Adrian Hubbard, who on Sunday signed a free agent deal with the Green Bay Packers.


Hubbard played the last three years on the field for head coach Nick Saban, defensive coordinator Kirby Smart and the Crimson Tide, compiling 83 total tackles with 18 for loss and 10 sacks. Coming into the draft he was projected by most as either a 7th-rounder or undrafted, as it actually turned out.

However, although undrafted, Hubbard could end up making a good impact with the Packers. The 10 sacks the last three years shows that he’s more than capable of rushing the passer from his slot, and with the varying ways the organization loves to utilize their players from that position, Hubbard could land in the good graces of the coaching staff in no time and find his niche.
