Washington's Chris Polk is one of the top running back prospects in this year's NFL Draft. Polk is currently projected to be drafted in the second round with a handful of teams being discussed as potential landing spots for the running back.
Polk's tough running style along with versatility and ability to play receiver make him a possible fit for many different teams. The first team All-Pac-12 selection racked up 1,448 yards on 293 carries and 12 touchdowns in his junior season at Washington. Polk is considered by most NFL Draft experts to be one of the top ten running back prospects in this year's draft.
A recent report by the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel says the Green Bay Packers are seriously interested in Polk:
The Packers hold the No. 59 overall pick in the second round.
A source said he believes the Green Bay Packers have a genuine interest in the running back after interviewing him at the combine in Indianapolis. Indeed, a scout from the Packers joined 12 other NFL representatives to watch Polk at pro day in early March in Seattle.
A more recent report by the Detroit Press, says the Detroit Lions, who have the No. 54 overall pick, are also targeting the running back in the second round.
