Packers Draft Tracker: Day Three
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Packers have seven more picks on day three to add to their roster. Follow along as Green Bay makes their selections in rounds four through seven.
4th Round - #132 - WR Romeo Doubs (Nevada)
General manager Brian Gutekunst opted to pick his second WR in this year’s draft with his first selection on Saturday. The Packers added a compliment to the deep threat of Christian Watson by picking Romeo Doubs, who can play inside and use his speed over the middle. Last season Doubs was a first team All-Mountain West Conference selection with 1,109 yards and 11 touchdowns. Doubs also returned punts for the Wolfpack and averaged 14.2 yards per kick. That could create competition between him and Amari Rodgers in the first year with new special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia.
4th Round - #140 - OL Zach Tom (Wake Forest)
Green Bay added their second tackle in this year’s draft by picking Zach Tom in the fourth round. Tom started his college career playing center as a freshman, and was moved to tackle as a sophomore. Starting 23 games over the last two seasons with Wake Forest. In 2021, Tom was on the field more than any other Demon Deacon and played 1,205 snaps. While he did play tackle at the end of his college career, Tom was considered by many to be a center during the draft process.
His older brother, Cameron, was a four year starter at Southern Miss and played for both the Saints and Dolphins in the NFL.
5th Round - #179 - EDGE Kinsley Enagbare (South Carolina)
The Packers traded away the 171st pick to Denver in exchange for pick 179 and another seventh round selection. They went on to take edge rusher Kinsley Enagbare out of South Carolina with the final pick in the fifth round. The 6′4″ 258 pound edge rusher ran a 4.68 40-yard dash at the combine, and was projected to go in the fourth or fifth round. Last season with the Gamecocks he had 4.5 sacks and seven tackles for loss in his 12 starts. According to ESPN Stats and Information, Enagbare generated pressure on 15.7% of his opponents dropbacks backs last season. That’s good enough for ninth in the FBS and behind only Alabama’s Will Anderson Jr. in the SEC.
7th Round - #228 - S Tariq Carpenter (Georgia Tech)
The Packers added to their secondary in the seventh round by adding versatile safety Tariq Carpenter. The 6′3″ 230 pound safety played in nine games last season for Georgia Tech and racked up a career high 65 tackles and broke up three passes. He could also be used as a linebacker after working at the position during the Senior Bowl, and had a pre-draft visit with the Packers just a couple of weeks ago, according to Sports Illustrated and Cover 2 contributor Bill Huber.
7th Round - #234 - DT Jonathan Ford (Miami-FL)
Green Bay continued to add more depth to their defensive front with the selection of Jonathan Ford. In his career with Miami, Ford played 50 games and 60 tackles and three sacks. At 6′5″ 333 pounds Ford definitely has a lot of size in the middle of the Packers defensive line, and gets off the ball well according to draft analysts. Still a work in progress for his on field production to match his traits, as well.
7th Round - #249 - T Rasheed Walker (Penn State)
Brian Gutekunst has now picked three offensive linemen in each of the last three drafts. The last addition to the OL room was Rasheed Walker out of Penn State. Walker started 32 games for the Nittany Lions during his college career, but missed the last two due to meniscus injury. He was projected by some to be a third round pick, but was unable to participate during drills in the combine due to the injury.
7th Round - #258 - WR Samori Toure (Nebraska)
The Packers wrapped up the draft with their third wide receiver. Samori Toure started his college career at Montana before transferring to Nebraska for his final season. He went on to play in 12 games for the Cornhuskers and finished with 898 yards with 5 touchdowns. Much like fellow Day Three pick Romeo Doubs, Toure also contributed as a punt returner. The 6′1″ 191 pound wide out was not invited to the combine, but posted a 4.44 40-yard dash with a 4.22 second short shuttle and the three-cone drill at 6.77 seconds during his pro day.
