Ennis Rakestraw Jr., CB, Missouri
Ennis Rakestraw Jr., CB, Missouri 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 latter portion of the first round (picks 20-32) who could be available when the Packers are on the clock at No. 25 overall.

Today's player is …

Ennis Rakestraw Jr., CB, Missouri

Height/Weight: 5-11, 183

Key stats: Broke up 24 passes in 35 career collegiate games but had just one interception, in 2022.

College honors: Four-time Southeastern Conference academic honor roll selection.

Background/other info: Doesn't have the flashy statistics of a highly touted prospect, but his physical style and film make him attractive, particularly as a press man cover corner. Has room to grow on a thin frame but utilizes his long arms well and plays a tough brand of defense in coverage and run support. Improved his 40 time from 4.51 at the combine, when he wasn't fully healthy, to 4.44 at Missouri's pro day. Became a full-time starter as a true freshman, but had his second season cut short due to an ACL injury. Then started every game in 2022 but missed four games in 2023 due to a groin injury, which kept him out of the Senior Bowl and affected his combine participation.
