Packers selected Oregon State TE Luke Musgrave with the No. 42 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.Musgrave (6’7/255) is as much of a black box prospect as you will find in this draft class. He didn’t do much until his third season in Corvallis, where he put a 22-304-1 receiving line in the books. Then, in 2022, he caught 11 passes for 169 yards in two games before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Musrgave’s story would have been that of a late-round, what-if prospect, but he was back to full strength for the Combine and put on a show. He blazed a 4.61 40, which featured an equally impressive 1.58-second 10-yard split. Musgrave also crushed the vertical and broad jumps en route to a 9.71 RAS. The limited sample on Musgrave makes him a wild gamble for the Packers, but his highlights on tape and elite athleticism make him an interesting bet, to say the least. The Pack have badly needed renewed play-making ability up the seam.
