This has been a consensus home run pick for the Packers, taking a guy in Tom who absolutely dominated the combine and with a little more weight will factor into their plans on the interior as a guard or center. Let’s see some of the reactions:
Zach Tom had PFF’s highest pass blocking grade in all of college football last season (92.1)— Daire Carragher (@DaireCarragher) April 30, 2022
Only 13 pressures allowed on 633 pass blocking snaps. Crazy good.
Zach Tom landing in Green Bay is a perfect prospect-team fit. Absolute steal on Day 3 for the Packers. https://t.co/29xqZd6FJi— Anthony Treash (@PFF_Anthony) April 30, 2022
Packers take Wake Forest OT/C Zach Tom at No. 140 in the fourth round.— Matt Schneidman (@mattschneidman) April 30, 2022
Dane Brugler: "Tom’s lack of ideal mass and length will lead to him losing block connections, but his body control and intelligence are terrific foundation traits for the center position."
Zach Tom will absolutely start games for the Packers at some point https://t.co/BtfxuOQzDL— Zach Kruse (@zachkruse2) April 30, 2022
Safe to say, this one looks promising for both sides. Being a 4th-round pick the baseline contact is around four years and $4.11 million. A nice first payday before a long career. Congrats Zach!
