Vince Biegel has received a harsh welcome to the NFL. The Green Bay Packers highly rated draft has taken a turn for the worse with one of their picks in the 2017 NFL draft, who is the first major injury concern of their 2017 season. Vince Biegel, who was drafted in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL draft by the Green Bay Packers has recently undergone surgery on his foot last week. This injury has been a huge blow to what looked like a promising draft class for the Packers.

How much time will Biegel miss?

Biegel will not miss his entire rookie season because of this injury.

This injury proves that teams that are relying on their rookies to be huge game changers from the get-go may be asking for too much too early. ESPN's Rob Demovsky and Adam Schefter reported that the procedure performed on Biegel's right foot was to repair a Jones fracture. The 27th of July, which is the first day of the Packers training camp, is the hopeful return date for Biegel. However, this is highly unlikely.

Biegel suffered this same injury in his last season for Wisconsin and as a result missed a total of two games because of it. In September of last year, Biegel had surgery and then three weeks later was able to return to full health and be able to play for the Badgers. Biegel will be on the sidelines for both the mini camp and OTA practices.

On Monday, the veterans were joined by this year's group of rookies for their final week of individual drills before the start of next week when full team practices begin for the offseason. Biegel will also be on the sidelines for these events.

The reason behind Biegel's drafting

The Packers drafted Biegel with the 108th pick in last month's draft.

Biegel was the final player selected on the defensive side of the football field. In his final season for the Badgers, he played 12 games and totaled four sacks, 44 tackles and recorded six tackles for a loss. The other defensive players that Green Bay drafted were defensive lineman Montravius Adams, and defensive backs Kevin King and Josh Jones.

These selections were by the Packers with their first three picks.

Biegel's drafting was supposed to bolster the Packers linebacker corps after the departures of Datone Jones and Julius Peppers to other teams this off season. Biegel's locker room was deliberately placed between Nick Perry and Clay Matthews in the hope that the Packers two best linebackers could help Biegel learn a thing or two before about life as an NFL linebacker. Biegel managed to pick up on this plan as soon as he reported for camp straight after being drafted by the Packers.
