The Green Bay Packers made their first selection of the 2023 NFL Draft on Thursday night with the 13th overall selection, drafting Iowa pass-rusher Lukas Van Ness. On Friday, the team made its next pick, holding two selections in close proximity to one another: the 42nd and 45th choices in the draft.

With the 42nd pick, the Packers have gone to the offense and added a big, athletic target for Jordan Love, selecting tight end Luke Musgrave out of Oregon State.

Musgrave missed much of the 2022 season with an injury, but when he played, he was a monster. He caught 11 passes for 169 yards and a touchdown in just two games. He also is an incredible athlete, recording a RAS of 9.78 thanks to elite measurements like a 4.61-second 40-yard dash and a 36-inch vertical.

At 6-foot-6 and 253 pounds, Musgrave is a physical mismatch on the boundary and the slot from day one, and he will look to develop as an in-line player and a run-blocker.

The Packers will be back up on the clock again shortly with the 45th overall pick.
