The Green Bay Packers selected South Carolina edge rusher Kingsley Enagbare with the 179th pick in the fifth round of the 2022 NFL draft.

The Packers traded down from No. 171, adding a seventh-round pick (No. 234) from the Denver Broncos for moving eight spots down.

Enagbare played in 44 games (21 starts) over four seasons at South Carolina. He produced 24 tackles for loss, 15.0 sacks, four forced fumbles and four pass breakups.

The Packers needed more depth at edge rusher after losing Za’Darius Smith. Enagbare brings terrific length and power to the position, possibly serving as an ideal replacement for Smith at this point in the draft.

Enagbare weighed in at 258 pounds and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.87 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine. He posted poor agility times also. His Relative Athletic Score was 6.26 out of 10.0.

Enagbare will compete with the likes of Jonathan Garvin, Tipa Galeai, Randy Ramsey and LaDarius Hamilton at outside linebacker behind starters Rashan Gary and Preston Smith.
