Packers take WR Malachi Dupre with final pick

Posted Apr 29, 2017

Dupre led LSU in receiving in his last two seasons

GREEN BAY – The Packers selected LSU receiver Malachi Dupre with the second of their two seventh-round picks (No. 247 overall) on Saturday.

A junior entry, the 6-foot-2, 196-pound receiver led LSU in receptions and receiving yards in each of the past two seasons (43 catches for 698 yards and six touchdowns in 2015 and 41 catches for 593 yards and three touchdowns in 2016).

Dupre has prior experience playing at Lambeau Field, catching three passes for 24 yards in LSU’s 16-14 loss to Wisconsin last September.

Dupre caught 14 passes for 318 yards in 2014 to earn a spot on the All-SEC freshman team in 2014.

The Packers drafted six consecutive offensive players to complete their 10-player draft class after taking the first four on defense.
