Packers select Ohio State C/G Josh Myers in the second round, No. 62 overall
GREEN BAY – Seven years after drafting All-Pro Corey Linsley, the Packers have taken another Ohio State center, Josh Myers, in the second round with the No. 62 pick.
A team captain in 2020, Myers started 21 of his final 22 games at center for the Buckeyes. The 6-foot-5, 310-pound native of Miamisburg, Ohio, broke into Ohio State’s starting lineup in 2019 at center, a position he didn’t play in high school.
In his 14 starts, Myers paved the way for Ohio State’s first-ever 2,000-yard running back, J.K. Dobbins, and Heisman Trophy finalist Justin Fields (51 total touchdowns).
Myers took his game to another level as a junior, earning first-team All-Big Ten and Rimington Trophy finalist honors in seven starts for the national runners-up.
Myers didn’t test at Ohio State’s March 30 pro day after playing through turf toe for much of last season. He did measure in with 32-inch arms and a 77 3/8-inch wingspan.
Myers joins Elgton Jenkins and Lucas Patrick as potential options to start at center after Linsley signed with the Los Angeles Chargers in free agency.
