  • Was named to the PFWA All-Rookie team, only the second Packers guard to be selected since 1974 (Daryn Colledge, 2006).
  • Helped clear the way for RB Aaron Jones, who posted a career-high 1,084 rushing yards and a career-best 16 rushing TDs, which was tied for the NFL lead in 2019 and was the second most in team history behind only FB Jim Taylor (19 in 1962).
  • Selected by the Packers in the second round (No. 44 overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft, becoming just the second Mississippi State offensive lineman since 2000 to be selected in the first two rounds of the draft (Packers T Derek Sherrod, first round, 2011).
