Round 2 (45): Luke Musgrave, TE, Oregon State

After adding players at premium positions on defense with their top two picks, it's now time to find some pass-catching help for Jordan Love.

Despite missing out on first-round tight ends, including Utah's Dalton Kincaid and Notre Dame's Michael Mayer, the Packers get tremendous value here by drafting Oregon State's Luke Musgrave.

Musgrave has incredible size and athleticism. He is 6-foot-6, 253 pounds, but ran an impressive 4.61-second 40-yard dash.

Had it not been for injuries, Musgrave could've been a first-rounder. He only played in two games last season, but he still made an impact with 11 catches for 169 yards and a touchdown, averaging 15.4 yards per reception.

Musgrave's injury history makes this a slight risk, but he has sky-high potential in the NFL. With his combination of size, athleticism, and speed, Musgrave could become a dominant pass-catcher in the middle of the field, an area where the Packers need help.

With Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis gone, Musgrave can step into a starting position early on.

There's also so much room for improvement. The 22-year-old has all the tools to become an explosive playmaker in the NFL, and he could finally give the Packers what they have needed for years: A game-changing TE1.
