Rivals to teammates: Ohio State C Josh Myers welcomed to Green Bay Packers by former Michigan DE Rashan Gary
Ohio State offensive lineman Josh Myers heard his name called during the second round of this year’s NFL Draft, which was undoubtedly a life-changing moment. If he could’ve picked someone else to make the announcement, he probably would have done so.
That’s because former rival defensive end, Rashan Gary, was the one to make the announcement. Gary, of course, spent three seasons at Michigan before declaring for the 2019 NFL Draft.
Gary was happy to make the announcement and welcome a new player to the Green Bay Packers organization, though after announcing Myers was the No. 62 pick out of Ohio State, the former Wolverine was sure to show his school pride.
“Go Blue, though,” Gary joked.

Myers worked his way into the starting job at center at Ohio State over the last two seasons. He played in 30 career games for the Buckeyes and started in 21 of his final 22 games with the program.
Now, Myers will begin his NFL career with Green Bay, hoping to carve out a role early on with the organization.
