Former Tennessee Volunteers running back Rajion Neal, who was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Green Bay Packers shortly after the 2014 NFL Draft, is fighting to make an NFL roster during training camp.
And so far it looks like he’s giving himself a pretty good chance at doing just that.
Neal received quite a bit of praise this weekend for his work as a goal line running back and his ability to get to the edge.

Backup RB Rajion Neal with a nice bounce to the outside. Big gain. That’s @HarrySydney24‘s guy.

Rajion Neal with a quick step to get outside and big up big yards on fourth-and-1. Looked legit despite no tackling.

Rajion Neal bounces outside for a gain of about 25 yards. Looked like Nick Perry got sucked inside pretty bad on the play.

Rajion Neal displays a little speed to the edge. His bid to make the #Packers roster got a little easier after Franklin was released.

Neal should at least make the roster as the Packers’ fourth running back on the depth chart. He might even be able to overtake DuJuan Harris for the number three spot.
The former Vol, according to reports as least, has had a great camp so far. If he keeps it up, he could have a long (by running backs standards at least) career in the NFL.
