Jayden Reed selected in second round of 2023 NFL Draft
Jayden Reed is officially off the board in the 2023 NFL Draft!
The Green Bay Packers officially made the move to select Reed with the 50th overall pick (19th of the second round) out of Michigan State. Reed has a tantalizing skill set, and that was enough for Green Bay to grab Reed at this point in the draft.
Already, the Packers have selected Luke Musgrave — a 6-foot-6 TE out of Oregon State — in the second round of the draft. Green Bay appears to be making a concerted effort to get weapons for Jordan Love as the quarterback makes the transition into the starting job.
As for Reed, the 6-feet and 185-pound receiver plays even bigger than his measurables with strong hands and speed for the position. He also proved to be a highlight-reel contributor in the return game for the Spartans.
In 3 seasons for Michigan State, Reed turned in 147 catches for 2,069 yards and 18 touchdowns, an average of 14.1 yards per catch. Reed also has 3 career punt return touchdowns (1 during his freshman year at Western Michigan).
Green Bay selected Reed ahead of where most analysts were projecting the WR to come off the board, but the Packers are certainly high on what Reed brings to the table.
