Wolff spent four years at the University of Tennessee before moving to Georgia for the 2019 season. He has picked up 13 passes for 194 yards (average 14.9), one touchdown for the Bulldogs, and 21 passes for 272 yards in his career.
Wolff went without drafting in 2020 and signed with Baltimore but failed to join the Ravens roster during training camp. He spent most of his rookie season in the coaching team. In 2021, Wolff was fired during training camp, then spent the second half of the season on the Colts coaching squad.
Wolf was hiking Tennessee in 2015. His brother Ethan was also on a tight end. Eli Wolf worked two seasons on his own before receiving a scholarship. Coach Butch Jones found a unique way to break the news.
The brothers were supposed to face off in a one-on-one exercise that Jones called the “Circle of Life.” Just as they were about to head out in full rehearsals, Jones blew his whistle, walked among the brothers and awarded Wolf a scholarship. His teammates erupted in celebration.

“It’s normal to always try to bite off a little bit more,” Elle said. Knoxville News About turning down a scholarship in Eastern Michigan to take a chance with volunteers. “I took a little bigger pictures, and obviously Ethan being in Tennessee was a big reason why I came here.”
Wolf arrived in Tennessee as a 205-pound walk.
“I remember sometimes getting up in the middle of the night, setting off my alarm, eating a peanut butter sandwich or something quick, and drinking protein shakes three times a day,” Wolf recalls in September 2019. “The weight room was huge as well. Since I got here, the weight room has done nothing but help me gain that weight and maintain that weight.
“It took a while, and it was mentally and physically difficult to get there, but I never looked at my weight and said, ‘Hey, if I was 220 I wouldn’t be able to perform.’ I always looked at her if I was at 220, I still would. I will be able to do what everyone can in 240. I may not be heavy but I will be as strong as every tight end in the country, and I took that as a personal challenge.”
The wolf is the seventh party on the list. It’s a depth chart that is topped by Robert Tonian, Marsdis Lewis and Josiah DeGuara and includes Tyler Davis, Dominic Daphne and Alice Mack.
Since recipient Allen Lazard has not signed his free agent restricted tender, and with three unsigned draft picks, you don’t need to make any corresponding move in the list.
Too early planning for a list of 53 men
in 2): Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love.
Out (2): Kurt Pinkert and Danny Ettling.
Watch out for: Ettling, if only because he is the new face and his interest in college football is more than Pinkert.
Early view: There’s no reason to keep three quarterbacks on the roster and it’s hard to see which team would be willing to trade for Love.

turn their backs
in 3): Aaron Jones, A.J. Dillon, Patrick Taylor.
Out (3): Kaelen Hill (PUP), BJ Baylor, Tyler Judson.
Watch out for: Baylor led the Pac-12 in rushing in 2021. According to Pro Football Focus, 57 missed tackles forced 227 serves compared to 38 missed tackles on 256 passes by Judson. Then again, Goodson had 31 assists with one drop compared to Baylor’s eight assists and two drops.
Early view: Hill suffered a ruptured ACL in Arizona on October 28. If he’s not ready, who will number 3 be back? Taylor may have changed the trajectory of his career during the Week 18 game in Detroit, when he rushed 11 times for 53 yards and one touchdown.

In (7): Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb, Amary Rodgers, Sammy Watkins, Christian Watson, Romeo Dobbs, Samori Toure.
Out (5): Joan Winfrey, Taylor Owner, Chris Blair, Rico Gaford, Danny Davis.
Watch out for: An ankle injury ruined Blair’s chances of competing for a place on the roster last summer, but the Packers considered him enough to keep him on the coaching staff for most of the season.
Early view: Watkins, the fourth pick for the 2014 draft and the only veteran addition to a group sent reeling by the Adams trade, is not a lock to create the roster. Beginner development will have a role in determining whether Watkins is simply Devin Funchess 2.0.

in (4): Robert Tonian, Mercedes Lewis, Tyler Davis, Josiah DeGuara.
Out (3): Dominic Daphne, Alice Mack and Eli Wolf.
Watch out for: Davis played 111 shots last season. “I think we might have something in there,” Gutkunst said while only getting four passes. Mack, a seventh-round pick by Saints in 2019, didn’t play in an NFL game but looked good in the rookie camp.
Early view: Tonian suffered a rupture in the AFC Champions League in Arizona on October 28. If he’s not ready for the first week, he should be soon so I think he’ll be at the Opening 53. It’s a quality group of players who really need to get Tonian back in shape for 2020.
Pictured: Tyler Davis (USA Today Sports Images)
in (8): LT David Bakhtiari, LG John Runyan, C. Josh Myers, RJ Royce Newman, RT Yosh Nijman, T/J Sean Ryan, OL Zack Tom, T. Rashid Walker.
out (8): G/T Elgton Jenkins (PUP), C Jake Hanson, C Michal Menet, C Cole Schneider, G George Moore, T Jahmir Johnson, T Caleb Jones, G/T Cole Van Lanen.
Watch out for: Schneider had been a rookie for four years in Central Florida and wouldn’t let his bag as a senior. Could it be Lucas Patrick 2.0 as an unpolished freelancer who found a home as a versatile indoor entrepreneur?
Early view: The Packers took nine blockers into the regular season last year, but the versatility of Rhyan (in guarding and interfering) and Tom (in all five positions) could allow players to save a spot on the roster elsewhere. Jenkins suffered a ruptured ACL on November 21.

line of defense
in (5): Kenny Clark, Dean Lowry, Devonty White, Garan Reed, TJ Slaton.
Out: (4) Jonathan Ford, Jack Heflin, Akial Byers, Hawati Pututao.
Watch out for: It was just a junior camp. There was no live competition in the trenches. But the 26-year-old Pututao showed his strength by pushing some young offensive linemen.
Early view: The additions of veteran Reed and junior White have changed the face of the line of defence. This has the potential of being a really solid unit to join in with excellent beginners in other positions.
Pictured: Kenny Clark (USA Today Sports Images)
in (6): Rashan Gary, Preston Smith, Jonathan Garvin, Kingsley Inagbari, Randy Ramsay, Teva Galli.
Out (3): Ladarius Hamilton, Kobe Jones, Chauncey Mannack.
Watch out for: As a Year Six player, Mannack scored 10.5 sacks and 14.5 saves for Louisiana losses in 2021.
Early view: Enagbare tested horribly at the Scouting Combine (and even worse on Pro Day) but looked athletic enough at rookie camp. If you want to overreact to a novice camper, the Enagbare could be a big steal. Ramsey, who missed last season with an ankle injury, and Gali both need to be assets on special teams.

in (5): De’Vondre Campbell, Quay Walker, Krys Barnes, Isaiah McDuffie, Ellis Brooks,
Out (3): Ty Summers, Successor Price, Ray Welburn.
Watch out for: Brooks, a productive rookie at Penn State, went without drafting but showed some real potential during rookie camp. His instincts seem to be fine and he has a reputation for being a hitter.
Early view: At the top of the depth chart, Campbell and Walker could be cool together. At the bottom of the depth chart, McDuffie, Summers and youngsters Brooks and Wellborn will compete for the last one or two spots.

in (6): Jair Alexander, Douglas Messenger, Eric Stokes, Shemar Jean Charles, Kessian Nixon, TBA.
Out (3): Cabion Into, Rally Texada, Quunder Thomas.
Watch out for: It appears that Ento has been in Green Bay for a decade now. Uncertified free agent in 2019, he spent 2019 in the coaching team, 2020 in the injured reserve and 2021 in the coaching team. A former recipient, his athletic style has come to prominence on a number of occasions.
Early view: Perhaps Jean-Charles or one of the other young players is ahead. But, as now, depth is fraught with danger. Beginning with Josh Jackson’s trade with the Giants for Isaac Yadom during training camp last summer, Jotkunst has tried and again tried to find the right depth. This may be the recipe again.

in (4): Adrian Amos, Darnell Savage, Tariq Carpenter, Sean Davis.
Out (3): Vernon Scott, Ines Gaines, Trey Sterling.
Watch out for: Gaines had a great story last summer, having gone from DoorDash to dashing to the list. He lost to Scott for a place on the roster, but Scott spent his second season in the NFL with his ass glued to the bench.
Early view: The starting duo is massive. depth? Doubtful, at best. Carpenter, a seventh-rounder, has the tools. Davis was a fifth-round pick by Indianapolis in 2021 who played in one game for the Packers. Like last year, if Packers want to use Savage in the slot, they must have a player qualified to step in safely.

in 3): K Mason Crosby, P Pat O’Donnell, L.S. Steven Wirtel.
Out (2): JJ Molson, Dominic Eberle.
Watch out for: Whoever the packers sign up to challenge Wirtel.
Early view: Eberle has experience with new special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia and boasts a strong leg, but Crosby is the favorite to keep his job after a bad season.
