By Nick Freimuth The Green Bay Packers owned picks 133 and 138 and started their third and final day of the 2018 NFL Draft with their first offensive selection. General Manager selected Missouri University wide receiver J’Mon Moore. The 6’ 2” 207-pound receiver was a second team all ACC player last season. Moore finished with back to back 1,000 yard receiving seasons.
The only knock on Moore was a relatively slow 40 time (4.6 seconds) for the wide receiver position. Moore proved consistent with 65 receptions and 10 touchdowns last season and 62 receptions as a junior.
The Packers added another offensive player to open the fifth round with Washington State guard Cole Madison. At 6’5” 308 pounds, Madison helped run the spread offense for the Cougars. He excelled at pass protection and is expected to provide the “tough guy” mentality next to center Corey Linsley.
Green Bay’s first of three fifth round picks was the first of the round and came from the trade that sent Damarious Randall to Cleveland.
