Offensive tackle Cole Madison was selected 138th overall to open the fifth round round Saturday by the Green Bay Packers.

The 6-foot-5, 308-pound Burien native and Kennedy High School alum was a key component in pass protection for Mike Leach’s Air Raid offense. He earned second-team All-Pac-12 honors as a senior in 2017 after starting all 13 games at right tackle. He was honorable mention All-Pac-12 the year before.

Falk was picked 199th overall in the sixth round by Tennessee to join Madison as the two Cougars taken in 2018.
