2013 undrafted free agents: Jake Stoneburner signs with Green Bay Packers

After not being selected in the 2013 NFL Draft, Jake Stoneburner agreed to terms with the Green Bay Packers on an undrafted free agent contract.


After going undrafted in the 2013 NFL Draft, Ohio State tight end turned wide receiver Jake Stoneburner agreed to terms with the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent. Stoneburner was SB Nation's No. 18 ranked tight end in the 2013 draft class.

Stoneburner is a solid athlete with good speed and excellent leaping ability. Due to his height and vertical, he is especially useful as a red zone threat, scoring once every 4.1 times he touched the ball in college. He spent time playing as both a wide receiver and a fullback in addition to tight end, so has some versatility.

Given his history as a wide out, it is no surprise that Stoneburner is not a great blocker. He lacks the frame, strength, and aggression needed to fight off defenders, both as a blocker and when pressed in coverage.

Stoneburner joins a franchise that already includes former Buckeyes LB A.J. Hawk and DE Ryan Pickett. At tight end in particular, the Pack are set at the top with former Texas tight end Jermichael Finley, and last year added one time Ohio State antagonist ex-Arkansas TE D.J. Williams. Stoneburner fits into Green Bay's offensive schematic just nicely, and with the NFL progressively moving to more and more two tight end packages, it's not out of the question at all that the Dublin Coffman product sticks around in Wisconsin.
