Prospect Primer: Drake London, WR, USC

Had 88 catches for 1,084 yards and seven TDs last season in just eight games

USC WR Drake London
USC WR Drake London has consulted more than two dozen mock drafts from reputable national outlets and compiled a list of players most frequently mocked as draft selections in the bottom half of the first round (picks 16-32) who would fit Green Bay's potential roster needs.

Between now and draft day, when the Packers own the No. 22 and 28 overall selections in the first round, those players will be profiled with thumbnail sketches and videos known as "Prospect Primers."

Today's player is …

Drake London, WR, USC

Height/Weight: 6-4, 213

Key stats: Caught 160 passes for 2,153 yards and 15 TDs in just 22 college games.

College honors: Named third-team All-America by the Associated Press as well as Offensive Player of the Year in the Pac-12 and first-team all-conference despite playing in just eight games.

Background/other info: London has a chance to be the first receiver taken in this draft, and/or to be selected well into the top half of the first round. Had he not broken his ankle in the middle of USC's eighth game last season, there might not be any question. In just 7½ games in 2021, London caught 88 passes for 1,084 yards and seven TDs, including five games with 10-plus receptions and six with 130-plus yards. Despite missing USC's last four games, he reeled in a ton of postseason honors. Due to his long injury recovery, he did not work out at the combine. He was able to perform some drills at a mid-April pro day, though he did not run a 40-yard dash for scouts. London is an impressive all-around athlete, having also played basketball at USC earlier in his college career.
