Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas
Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas 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.

Between now and draft day, those players will be profiled with thumbnail sketches and videos known as "Prospect Primers."

Today's player is …

Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas

Height/Weight: 5-11, 165

Key stats: Caught 26 touchdown passes in 39 career games, third in school history, and caught a pass in all 39 games, the third-longest streak.

College honors: Earned All-Big 12 Conference recognition at wide receiver each of the last three years and received second- or third-team All-America honors from various outlets as a return specialist/all-purpose player in 2023.

Background/other info: Made a major name for himself at the scouting combine, setting the event record by blazing the 40 in 4.21 seconds. Also posted a vertical jump of 41 inches and a broad jump of 10-11. Used that speed and explosiveness on both offense and special teams throughout his college career, which featured a 1,000-yard receiving season in 2023 (after missing the mark by 19 yards as a freshman in '21, garnering several freshman awards and honors) and a 14.1-yard punt return average on 40 attempts, including a 74-yard TD last year. The career punt return average ranks second in school history while his 16.9-yard average in 2023 ranked second in the FBS. Vertical threat to stretch defenses will be attractive to some teams, while slight build and lack of physicality won't be to others. Quick-twitch ability could be utilized in the slot as well.
