NFL Draft: Charlotte WR Grant DuBose selected by Green Bay Packers in seventh round
Grant DuBose is headed to Green Bay.
The Charlotte 49ers wide receiver was selected with the 256th overall pick by the Packers on Saturday. DuBose was officially the fourth-to-last pick on draft weekend.
DuBose is the fifth Charlotte player to be selected in the NFL Draft. He joins Larry Ogunjobi (2017), Nate Davis (2019), Alex Highsmith (2020) and Cameron Clark (2020) in that exclusive club.
DuBose entered the NFL Draft process in January after initially considering the transfer portal earlier this offseason. DuBose was invited to the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama, in January, and he stood out during the week of practices at the all-star game.
The 6-foot-2, 201-pound wideout then went to the NFL combine in Indianapolis in February. He ran a 4.57-second 40-yard dash and a 6.89-second three-cone drill at Lucas Oil Stadium. He also had a 35-inch vertical.
During his two seasons at Charlotte, DuBose caught 126 passes for 1,684 yards and 15 touchdowns.
He will now look to make the 53-man roster in Green Bay, as Jordan Love replaces Aaron Rodgers at quarterback.
