Packers Select LSU Wide Receiver Malachi Dupre in 2017 NFL Draft, Round Seven

With their seventh-round pick (247 overall) in the 2017 NFL draft, the Green Bay Packers select LSU wide receiver Malachi Dupre.

6' 2", 196lbs, 4.52 40yd dash, 11 Bench reps, 39.5" vertical, 135" broad jump, 7.19 sec 3-cone,  4.26 20yd shuttle
 
 
 
CAREER NOTES: 
 
A former five-star prospect and high school state champion triple, long, and high-jumper from New Orleans. Leading receiver for LSU the last two seasons.  Stats were 43-698, six TDs in 2015; 41-593, three TDs in 2016. 
 
 
 
 
 
COMMENTARY:
 
Dupre was a big dropper in this draft. Most draft boards had him as a fourth rounder. Has big play ability and can high point the ball. Can struggle with press coverage and catching balls in tight spaces. Only 196 lbs, needs to hit the weight room hard. Oversall, a very good value for the end of Round 7.

It seems TT strikes again. Rodgers should have a ton of targets I wonder who is gone this year, anyone anyone I have a name starts with a J and its not Jordy.

6 offensive picks after 4 defensive picks. I would have thought the Packers would have picked up another pass rusher in round 5 or 6. My guess is that TT will focus on defense with this year's crop of UDFAs. Overall a good off-season for the Packers so far. 2 starting caliber TEs, a starting guard, and probably a starting CB from FAs. Two possible starting DBs, a rotational DL and a rotational edge player, plus at least one rotational RB and depth at WR. Not a bad haul so far for the Packers. Too soon to tell how it all works out but I think it's a very good job by TT and his staff. We'll see what the UDFAs bring. Thanks, Since '61

Dupre was the #1 WR prospect out of high school. Very excited about this pick.

Surely he must win the prize for the best "value for where drafted" pick, by the Packers

Agree with all since '61 mentioned above
If TT draft works out, we will get a newer version of richard Sherman in King a faster version of Hyde in Jones a really good football player vs athlete and ace special teamed and rotational edge rusher in the homeboy Vince acnew james Starks in Williams or jones and two new wideout for number 12 to practice on and a whole load of sp Ed on defense and upgrade at special teams,weren't they rated in the 30's
