The Green Bay Packers seemed very interested in offensive linemen going into the NFL Draft. For good reason. They have an open spot at right guard and could have one at right tackle. One of those guys we assume will compete for a job there is Cole Madison, who the Packers took at No. 138.
Madison was a tackle at Washington State, but may be a guard in the pros. That suggests he could perhaps be a replacement for Jahri Evans, who hasn’t been re-signed after a one-year stint in Green Bay. We’ve also discussed the possibility that the Packers may move on from right tackle Bryan Bulaga, who refused to take a pay cut this offseason.
Madison is 6’5″ and 308. He’s considered adept at pass protection, which is obviously something the Packers covet.
It’s hard to really get a read on the guy, however. Washington State runs an up-tempo spread offense, which doesn’t really project to the pro game. Some say Madison benefitted from that.
6’5” and 308 are likely tackle measurables, but who knows, we have a history of making centers or guards out of college tackles.
