A few minutes after drafting wide receiver Romeo Doubs out of Nevada, the Green Bay Packers draft another player I have been talking about all draft season. The Packers drafted Zach Tom, offensive lineman out of Wake Forest.
So, who is Zach Tom, other than the Packers’ newest offensive lineman?
Packers Draft OL Zach Tom From Wake Forest
Zach Tom may be the most athletic offensive lineman in the 2022 NFL Draft. He is not ready to start Day 1, but he is a player the Packers could develop into a future starter on this offensive line.
Tom started the past two seasons at left tackle for the Demon Deacons, but he played center before that, so he has the versatility the Packers often look for.
Zach Tom clearly has the speed and quickness to deal with speed rushers at tackle. However, he doesn’t have the length of a typical NFL tackle. For this reason, many, including myself, see him as a guard at the next level. Regardless, he has the tools to be a freak and an absolute problem in the outside zone game.
He’s a depth guy for now, but he has the potential for more. That’s exactly what you’re looking for in a fourth-round offensive line pick.
