Three big, fast receivers in one draft. Why not?

For the third time on Saturday, the Green Bay Packers have picked a wide receiver. After landing two wideouts, an offensive guard, and a punter in the first four picks of day three, Green Bay went back to the receiver in the sixth round.

The selection with the 207th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft is Equanimeous St. Brown a wide receiver from Notre Dame.

The man named Equanimeous Tristan Imhotep J St. Brown is yet another large, fast wide receiver, measuring in at 6-foot-4 12 and 214 pounds at the 2018 NFL Combine. He only performed in one drill there, but it was a great number as he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.48 seconds. He later added a 34.5-inch vertical at Notre Dame ‘s Pro Day.

St. Brown’s best season came in 2016, when he caught 58 passes for 961 yards (16.6 yards per catch) and nine touchdowns. His quarterback that year? DeShone Kizer, who is now on the Packers’ roster as well. His production slipped in 2017, in part due to changes at quarterback after Kizer left for the NFL.

St. Brown also has a notable family, with his father John being named Mr. Universe and two brothers being top college football recruits over the past few years.

Take a look at a few of St. Brown’s highlights here:

The Packers have three more picks remaining in the seventh round, with selections at 232, 239, and 248 overall.
