Packers take long snapper in seventh round


GREEN BAY – The Packers went back to the special-teams well in the seventh round on Saturday, drafting long snapper Hunter Bradley from Mississippi State.

Bradley (6-3, 240) was chosen with the No. 239 overall pick, and he joins Alabama punter JK Scott as the Packers’ second special-teams selection on Day 3.

Bradley played in 41 career games as the Bulldogs’ primary long snapper and was credited with four tackles on the coverage teams.

He was invited to the East-West Shrine Game during the college all-star season after spending six years at Mississippi State. Bradley tore an ACL in his knee during his true freshman season and then took a second redshirt season the following year. He was granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA to play in 2017, having already graduated.
