Luke Musgrave selected No. 42 overall by Green Bay Packers in 2nd Round of NFL Draft


Oregon State tight end Luke Musgrave is a Green Bay Packer.

The Packers selected Musgrave on Friday with the eleventh pick of the second round, No. 42 overall.

Musgrave is the highest drafted Beaver since Brandin Cooks went in the first round, 20th overall, to New Orleans.

Musgrave played just two games for the Beavers in 2023 after suffering an injury late in OSU’s comeback win at Fresno State in week two.

He is the fourth tight end taken in the draft, with Utah’s Dalton Kincaid going in the first round to Buffalo, and a pair taken earlier in the second round with Iowa’s Sam Laporta going to Detroit and Notre Dame’s Michael Mayer going to Las Vegas.

Luke Musgrave Selected By Green Bay

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State tight end Luke Musgrave has been selected in the second round, 42nd overall by Green Bay on Friday in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Musgrave is the first OSU player taken in the second round of the draft since Stephen Paea in 2011 by the Chicago Bears. Musgrave also gives the Beavers back-to-back tight end selections after Teagan Quitoriano was taken by Texas in the fifth round in 2022.

Musgrave, a Bend, Ore., native, played in 34 games over four seasons for the Beavers. He caught 47 passes for 633 yards and two touchdowns.

He was named to the Mackey Award Watch List prior to the 2022, an honor which is given annually to the nation’s top tight end.

Musgrave is the ninth Oregon State player taken by Green Bay all-time, and the first since both Nick Barnett and James Lee were taken in 2003.
