Vitale took every first-team rep at fullback in practices open to the media this spring, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Vitale is one of two fullbacks on the roster along with practice-squad holdover Malcolm Johnson. During his time with the Browns in 2016 and 2017, Vitale showed he could play on all four phases of special teams. While he hasn't done much offensively since being selected in the sixth round in 2016, the former college "super back" -- he nabbed 135 receptions for 1,427 yards and 11 scores in four seasons at Northwestern -- seems capable of serving as a pass catcher out of the backfield in the mold of the 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk. There's no guarantee he'll make first-year coach Matt LaFleur's roster, but Vitale's potential presence in 2019 could mean that slightly fewer touches are available for the rest of the Packers' backs.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
Vitale's role in Cleveland's offense is almost exclusively as a blocker, and that doesn't seem likely to change in 2018. The 22-year-old has yet to garner a rush attempt in his NFL career and has just seven receptions over two years.
Vitale has secured the starting fullback role with the Browns after starting the the final nine weeks of the season in 2016. While he doesn't produce much statistically, the fullback/tight end hybrid has the capability of being a pass-catching threat out of the backfield. With no competition in camp, the 22-year-old will get a chance to become more incorporated into offensive schemes this coming season.
An athletic fullback/tight end hybrid that gave rise to a position dubbed as "superback" while at Northwestern, Vitale offers the potential to keep opposing defenses off balance, considering the 4.6 speed he possesses at a weight of approximately 240 pounds. His diverse skill set is expected to earn him some modest touches out of both the backfield and at tight end in his rookie campaign, but his opportunity could be relatively capped on a Bucs offense that is suddenly brimming with talent.
