Luke Musgrave Scouting Report
Per NFL Draft Buzz, Musgrave has the following strengths and weaknesses:
- He’s a fluid athlete with excellent short-area quickness; Musgrave should be able to create separation, and he has the straight-line speed to threaten down the seam
- Musgrave also has value as a catch-and-run threat, running hard and consistently picking up yards after the catch
- Soft, reliable hands center the big target for quarterbacks. Shields the defense and will let the ball into his pads to protect it when about to absorb a big hit over the middle
- He combines good speed with his size, and he accelerates off the line better than most big receivers
- He’s a work in progress as a blocker, often playing too high and getting overpowered at the point of attack
- He’ll also have to adjust to getting his head around to locate the ball on shorter routes over the middle

Would Luke Musgrave Fit on the Packers?
The Packers need a dynamic tight end next season. Whether they sign one through free agency or draft one, it was an element that was missing from their offense. Musgrave would be a great fit for the Packers. While his run blocking does need work, what he would bring in the passing game would outweigh his deficiencies in run blocking.

Musgrave would be a perfect second-round target for GM Brian Gutekunst. If Gutekunst does not want to take one of the top tight ends in the first round, he could easily wait and find good value in the second and maybe third round.
