GREEN BAY — The Packers have had a lot of success drafting wide receivers in the second round in the past with Jordy Rodgers, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams.
On Friday night, the Packers started the second round off with a bang, trading up with the Minnesota Vikings to draft North Dakota State wide receiver Christian Watson.
The Packers gave up both of their second round draft picks (53 and 59) to move to No.34 and take Watson.
Watson was a first-team All-American in the FCS for 2021. On the year, he had 43 receptions for 801 yards and seven touchdowns.
After trading all the way up to pick 34, Green Bay had a long way until they were back on the clock, 58 picks to be exact.
With the 94th selection, the Packers took UCLA offensive lineman Sean Rhyan.
Rhyan started 12 games at left tackle this past season for the Bruins. He was a part of an offensive line group that helped the UCLA rushing attack average 215 yards per game. He was named to the 2021 Pac-12 first-team.
