Round 2 (43): Cedric Tillman, WR, Tennessee
Cedric Tillman checks every box the Packers look for at wide receiver. He has good size at 6-foot-3, 213 pounds, and is an excellent athlete, earning an RAS of 9.56 out of 10.
Tillman is a tough, physical receiver, and he can block, something the Packers have lost with Allen Lazard leaving in free agency.
While he missed a lot of time last season due to injury, Tillman was dominant in 2021, catching 64 passes for 1,081 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Tillman would be a perfect complement for Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs in Green Bay.
Round 2 (45): Darnell Washington, TE, Georgia
Jordan Love would be delighted with this pick. A dominant blocker who can also catch passes?
Enter Georgia’s Darnell Washington.
Washington is another outstanding athlete, with an RAS of 9.87 out of 10. He had the third-fastest 20-yard shuttle at any position at the NFL Scouting Combine, which is particularly impressive as he is 6-foot-7, 264 pounds.
“Washington has tremendous value because he functions as a sixth offensive lineman in the run game and he’s a moving billboard in the passing game,” wrote NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah.
With a young quarterback, drafting a player like Washington makes a ton of sense. He would be a reliable target for Love while also dominating as a blocker.
