Charles Walls, who is entering his fifth season with the Packers and third as a college scout, has had his role expanded to area scout. He began as a scouting intern with Green Bay in 2013 and served as a scouting assistant in 2014. Walls also previously served as the team's National Football Scouting representative to the NFL Scouting Combine.
