2020 Fantasy Outlook
Deguara's selection in the third round raised some eyebrows among draftniks, but it was revealed afterward that coach Matt LaFleur is a big fan. He doesn't possess an elite skill, but he's good at a lot of things, and LaFleur and the Packers are planning to utilize that. Deguara is listed as a tight end, but it's expected he will be used in an H-back role, lining up in multiple spots on the field. It's a role that's unlikely to make him much of a fantasy factor but should get him on the field plenty. Read Past Outlooks

The Packers selected Deguara in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 94th overall.
Deguara is somewhat undersized for a tight end but has impressive athleticism to match his notable collegiate production. The Cincinnati product caught 77 of 137 targets for 927 yards and 12 touchdowns over his last two years with the Bearcats. At the combine, Deguara ran a 4.6 40-yard dash at 6-foot-2 and 242 pounds. He also had strong shuttle and jump scores. With Jimmy Graham gone, Deguara could compete with second-year pro Jace Sternberger for the starting tight end role in Green Bay. However, it appears he will line up all over, as according to GM Brian Gutekunst, Deguara will likely be used "in the slot, back as a fullback, (and as) an H-back."
