Packers trade up, take WR Christian Watson at 34th overall

The Packers traded both their second-round picks to the Vikings Friday to move up and select Christian Watson with the 34th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Watson is a 6-foot-4 wide receiver and kick returner from North Dakota State University.

Green Bay gave up the 53rd and 59th overall picks to get the 34th overall pick.

Watson’s father Tim was also a Packers draft pick, in the sixth round back in 1993.
