GREEN BAY – The Packers got their tight end, drafting Oregon State's Luke Musgrave in the second round (No. 42 overall) on Friday night.

The 6-foot-5, 253-pound tight end caught 47 passes for 633 yards and two touchdowns in 34 college games (17 starts). In 2022, Musgrave had five-plus catches and 80-plus receiving yards in each the Beavers' first two games before suffering a season-ending knee injury.

A native of Bend, Ore., Musgrave ran a 4.61 in the 40-yard dash with a 36-inch vertical at the NFL Scouting Combine and registered the fastest 10-yard split (1.54 seconds) among tight ends. He ranked No .27 on Bruce Feldman's Freaks List for The Athletic due to his vertical, 40 and 4.21 pro agility.

Green Bay returns former third-round pick Josiah Deguara and Tyler Davis but was in the market for tight end help after Robert Tonyan signed with the Chicago Bears in free agency. Veteran Marcedes Lewis remained unsigned.

Musgrave was invited to the Senior Bowl. He's the nephew of longtime NFL and college coach Bill Musgrave. His father, Doug, played two years at Oregon.

The Packers received the 42nd pick from the Jets as part of the Aaron Rodgers' trade. They're slated to pick again at No. 45.
