Sagapolu played in 44 games during his Badgers career, including 26 starts. He was limited to just 8 games in 2018 after suffering an arm injury against Northwestern, missing the final 5 games of his senior season. He went undrafted in this spring’s NFL Draft, partially due to those injury concerns.
Sagapolu will likely compete for a backup spot on the Packers’ roster behind starter Kenny Clark.
