Green Bay got its big wide receiver in the fourth round.

The Green Bay Packers hold eight picks on the third and final day of the 2018 NFL Draft, and they have elected not to use that ammunition to trade up into the early part of the fourth round of the draft. Instead, the team waited until their name came up on the clock with the 133rd overall selection, the 33rd pick of round four, to make their first pick on Saturday.

With that 133rd pick, the Packers have selected wide receiver J’Mon Moore from Missouri. Moore is 6-foot-3 and 207 pounds and ran a reported 4.49-second 40-yard dash at his Pro Day. That came after a disappointing 4.60-second 40 at the 2018 NFL Combine. However, he did post excellent agility numbers, with a blazing 6.56-second time in the 3-cone drill and a 4.04-second shuttle time.

Moore had a pre-draft meeting with the Packers this spring.

A 1,000-yard receiver each of the last two years for the Tigers, Moore projects as a boundary receiver who could contribute opposite Davante Adams. He also could contribute in the red zone, as he recorded 18 combined touchdowns over the past two seasons.

It was not a surprise to see the Packers draft an offensive player here after they had drafted three straight players on defense over Thursday and Friday. However, the team still seemingly needs to address its pass rush at some point, as it has not selected an edge rusher or defensive lineman yet this week.
