Packers address offense on draft's second day

Jordan Live finally got some help offensively through the draft on Friday as the Green Bay Packers selected two tight ends and a wide receiver.

The Packers got their tight end, drafting Oregon State's Luke Musgrave in the second round (No. 42 overall) on Friday night.
The 6-foot-5, 253-pound tight end caught 47 passes for 633 yards and two touchdowns in 34 college games (17 starts). In 2022, Musgrave had five-plus catches and 80-plus receiving yards in each the Beavers' first two games before suffering a season-ending knee injury.
Green Bay selected Michigan State's Jayden Reed with their second pick in the second round Friday night, at No. 50 overall.
The Packers originally owned the No. 45 pick and traded it to the Lions for the No. 48 selection, acquiring an extra fifth-round choice, No. 159, from Detroit. Green Bay then subsequently traded No. 48 to Tampa Bay for No. 50, adding a sixth-round pick, No. 179, from the Buccaneers.
Reed, a 5-11, 187-pound receiver/returner and native of Naperville, Ill., began his college career at Western Michigan in 2018. He caught 56 passes for 797 yards and eight TDs, plus returned a punt for a score, to earn freshman All-America honors before transferring to Michigan State.
The Packers doubled up at tight end on Friday night, drafting South Dakota State's Tucker Kraft in the third round (No. 78 overall).
Green Bay took Oregon State tight end Luke Musgrave in the second round (No. 42).
The 6-foot-4, 254-pound tight end caught 99 passes for 1,211 yards and nine touchdowns in 32 collegiate games.
Kraft enjoyed his best season as a junior, hauling in 65 passes for 773 yards and six touchdowns in 15 games. He suffered an early-season ankle injury in 2022 but still finished with 27 catches for 348 yards and three TDs in nine contests.
