With the 28th pick in the draft, the Packers select…
Nick Perry, offensive tackle, USC (6-3, 250)
The Packers needed to improve their pass rush and Perry has the first step and explosion to reach the edge and create pressure. He’s a little stiff in the hips, but knows how to use his hands to fight off contact and runs well sideline-to-sideline. He should come in, contribute early and is a good value for the Packers at the end of round one.
NFL Ceiling: 10 sacks per year
