The Green Bay Packers selected Tulane quarterback Michael Pratt in the seventh round of the 2024 NFL Draft, No. 245 overall.

The Packers' backup quarterback role will presumably be up for grabs this offseason, as Sean Clifford and Alex McGough are the only other QBs on the team's active roster behind Jordan Love.

Pratt completed a career-high 65.4% of his passes in 2023 to go along with 2,406 yards and 22 touchdowns against five interceptions. He also added five rushing TDs, down from 10 in 2022.

Pre-draft profile

Pratt profiles as a long-term backup quarterback at the next level. Touch and accuracy are his calling cards, particularly over the middle of the field. He could become an effective point man in an offense built around a quick-hit passing game. Pratt also shows an ability to extend plays with his legs and occasionally pick up yards for himself. Average arm talent keeps him from being overly effective downfield and outside the numbers, and he will need to develop better processing skills and pocket management to take care of the ball and make good, timely decisions.
