Former Penn State offensive tackle Rasheed Walker is heading to Green Bay after being drafted by the Green Bay Packers with the No. 249 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

A three-year starter at left tackle, Walker helped pave the way for Penn State to an 11-3 record and a New Year's Six bowl win as a redshirt freshman. He was a third-team All-Big Ten selection by the media and received an honorable mention from the coaches each of the last two years.

At 6'6/325, Walker is a towering figure who showed flashes of a future first-round pick during his time on campus. If he can consistently perform at his highest level, he could be a Day Three draft steal that teams are always clamoring for.
