GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – Add another corner back to the defensive backs room. The Packers take Shemar Jean-Charles out of Appalachian State with the 178th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Jean-Charles comes in on the small side, 5’10, 184 pounds. He broke up 17 passes as a senior to lead all FBS players. He added 97 career tackles, including 82 in his two seasons as a starter.

When asked about the opportunity, Jean-Charles couldn’t put the gratitude he had into words.

“Thank God for this opportunity… I guarantee that the Packers are going to get everything out of me,” he said with feeling.
