Packers Select OT Cole Madison In NFL Draft, Round Five

 

With their fifth-round pick (138th overall) in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers select Cole Madison, OT, Washington State.

Measurables / Combine:

5.33s 4-=yard dash; 26 reps bench press; 28.5-inch vertical jump; 97-inch broad jump; 7.86s 3-cone drill; 4.88s 20-yard shuttle.

Career Notes:

Madison redshirted his first year on campus and was able to start a few games as a freshman the following year. He proved his toughness by starting all 39 games for Washington State from his sophomore through his senior season. He has a decorated catalog of awards from the All-PAC 12 teams. As a senior, he was named All-PAC 12 first team by the Associated Press. He was a tackle on a team that provided Luke Falk a lot of security to put up numbers in a spread out offense.

NFL.COM Draft Profile

Scouting Report:

CHEESEHEADTV.COM: Madison just finished a four-year tour as a Humvee in a junior guerilla army. Mike Leach’s Cougars throw the ball 55 times a game, and Madison reliably protected their quarterback for four years. He’s on the budget a lot because he doesn’t have Corbett’s power or maneuverability. But he does have starting experience at right tackle, where Bulaga’s injuries remain a cause for concern.

CBSSPORTS.COM: Finesse offensive tackle who doesn't have the power to move defensive linemen in the run game and is easily dispatched by counter moves. Quick feet and plenty of experience in pass protection.

Commentary:

 

Madison seems a natural fit for a pass-heavy offense, which the Packers prove themselves to be every season. The Cougars hardly spent any time running the ball and averaged less than 70 yards on the ground per game in 2017. His size makes him a potential tackle, but the consensus on him now is that he's more of a fit on the interior of the line so as not to be put out on an island against an NFL pass rusher. With no health issues to worry about, Packer fans can be content with a backup guard who has the size and flexibility to rotate up in the future.

Just read he was rated c minus pick. Lacks power and strength. Not good having first pick in the 5th and this is what you take.

Bulaga's arms were to short. Strength is easily improved. Spriggs has put on notice.

Joe Thomas has short arms. and was the best ever
Jason Spriggs has long arms and sucks.

So, right. Who cares.

This is the first pick we've made that looks flatout awful. We'll see, though--big uglies can be hard to predict.

Athleticism even a mother wouldn't love. Zero strength--I think he got beat up by a kicker. Draft analysts say he would have benefited from staying in school another decade.

One of my biggest beef's with analytics' is human beings are reduced to numbers! Every player in the NFL is a sum of parts and not all of the high on the A\C . Just as Joe Thomas was dinged for his short arms or Johnathon Ogden and his perceived lack of flexibility; a players works with and improves his physical talents. It is more important he have the mental makeup for the game. Even though I saw Mason Cole play twice this year the stunning weaknesses highlighted didn't appear so obvious to me. WSU used a 2 second offense and he did not appear overly exposed in those crucial windows. Now I a m not saying that he will develop into Dbak but the lack of strength and aggressiveness were thought weaknesses of his as well! I wonder why we don't wait for TC to suggest that a 4th round pick was wasted

Let's hope that he's better than Don Barclay or Marshall Newhouse. Thanks, Since '61

I always felt Newhouse was miscast as tackle. He should have been moved inside.

The Shaqeem story never ended. they repeated some pieces of it 3 times and there were several different interviews. It was a good story that showed his courage but spend 1 hour on a 6 hour program on one person and 5 hours on the other 250 players ?

It bothers me. You have Cain out there.WR! Everyone liked this kid at the senior Bowl. I doubt he's Colt Lyeria. St Brown too . Fountain was gone #159. All spread the field. Jordy Nelson is Gone. I surprised we didn't get more 7 rounders. But Gutes right if A-Rod won't throw to them!

Freaking amazing. They had pick 172 and 174. Came back for pick 173. Another commercial. I guess picking a punter isn’t worth discussing.

JK Scott is the best punter in this year's draft, with impressive 45.6-yard career average per punt. He is said to have the talent and play traits to become a long-time NFL starter.

Please don't knock the Packers for picking a punter. Oakland Raiders selected another punter right after Scott.

The punter Scott is great. I only had the question of timing: Then the Raiders picked the next pick - a punter, and I thought it was great that we picked Scott right where we picked him. Out of 56 punts, only 5 returns - his hang time is incredible. Nearly half his punts were downed inside the 20, with only 4, I think, that went into the end zone. This guy is a GREAT punter, and that is a weapon. Yes, I said that. (I can't believe it either).
