3 spots open by my count on roster still so Packers may keep those spots open for tryout players.

From Tony Pauline:

Jacob Capra NFL Draft Scouting Report | Offensive Line​

Positives: Oregon transfer who started the past two seasons at both tackle spots as well as guard. Explosive and fundamentally sound blocker who gets the most from his ability. Stays square, keeps opponents in front of him, and works well with linemates.

Quick out to the second level, fluid pulling across the line of scrimmage, and works to get a pad on defenders. Blocks with proper pad level while also effectively placing his hands into opponents. Displays outstanding vision as well as instincts and patience and works hard with teammates.

Negatives: Average strength and struggles finishing blocks. Needs to sink his butt more at the line of scrimmage.

Analysis: Capra is an underrated blocking prospect who is often dismissed in scouting circles. He possesses size and movement skills as well as growth potential, and he’s a developmental prospect for a zone-blocking system.

Jacob Capra played his final season at San Diego State alongside his brother.

Capra spent his first three seasons at Oregon alongside current Packers center Jake Hanson. Having earned his degree, he transferred to San Diego State for the 2019 season, when younger brother Joey was redshirting as a freshman. During that first season, the elder Capra started four games at left tackle and two at right tackle. In 2020, he settled in at left guard. According to Pro Football Focus, he allowed zero sacks and just two pressures in earning some all-Mountain West Conference honors.

At pro day, Capra measured 6-foot-5 1/8 and 300 pounds with 33 1/4-inch arms. He ran his 40 in 5.29 seconds and put up 27 reps on the 225-pound bench press.

Why he’s got a chance with the Packers: With a below-average Relative Athletic Score, Capra faces an uphill battle at position group in which four of the five starters are returning and six draft picks were added the past two years. But those pass-protection numbers, and that he played offensive tackle in the Pac-12, give him a shot.
