2024 NFL Draft: Packers select Duke OL Jacob Monk in 5th round, No. 163 overall

Green Bay gives up another sixth-round pick to move up five spots


GREEN BAY – The Packers made another trade up Saturday, jumping five spots to No. 163 overall to take Duke offensive lineman Jacob Monk in the fifth round.

Green Bay gave up a sixth-rounder, No. 219 overall, along with No. 168 in the fifth round in a swap with Buffalo.

Monk (6-3, 308) started 58 games at Duke, at three different positions, over five seasons. He started at right tackle as a true freshman in 2019, moved inside to right guard for the next two seasons, and then split his starts between right guard and center over the last two years.

According to Pro Football Focus, Monk allowed seven sacks as a freshman at right tackle, but after moving inside, he allowed only five sacks over four seasons and nearly 1,500 pass-blocking snaps. His last two years, PFF's totals were one sack allowed in 661 pass-blocking snaps.

Monk earned second-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors last season and served as a team captain for the Blue Devils. He was honorable mention All-ACC the two previous years.

He clocked a 5.09-second 40-yard dash at the scouting combine, just half a tenth of a second (.05) slower than Green Bay's first-round offensive lineman, Jordan Morgan.

The Packers gave up a sixth-round pick earlier Saturday and now have traded away two picks in that round, leaving one left in the sixth at No. 202.
