Just hours after Juwann Winfree was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the 6th round, his fellow Colorado Buffaloes receiver Kabion Ento signed with the Green Bay Packers.
Like Winfree, Ento was always someone who could have contributed a lot more than he did with the Buffs. Winfree was held back by injuries, while Ento was held back by coaching gameplans that couldn’t find him any targets. He only had 20 catches in his three years at CU, which was somewhat surprising considering how gifted he is at getting contested catches and making big plays.
In signing with the Packers, Ento has landed in a terrific spot. The Packers are known for developing homegrown talents, particularly big-bodied receivers like Ento. Green Bay also uses a ton of receivers in their air-it-out offensive scheme, so if Ento can prove to Aaron Rodgers that he make contested catches on back-shoulder fades, he should get an opportunity in the NFL. At the very least, Ento has been touted for his special teams experience and could get a look in that role.
