Packers draft Van Ness

Lukas Van Ness Headshot

The Packers selected Edge Lukas Van Ness 13th overall in the 2023 NFL Draft. Van Ness posted 19 tackles for loss and 13 sacks over the past two years but likely hasn’t come close to his ceiling. Van Ness declared early and saw his snaps limited a bit by Iowa’s line rotation. His combo of size (6’5, 272 pounds) and athleticism (91st-percentile 40 time; 80th-percentile 3-cone drill) are exciting. His immediate role in Green Bay might depend on how soon Edge Rashan Gary is ready to return from last year's ACL tear. Find out more about Van Ness in our early IDP rookie rankings.
