Green Bay Packers Saturday Draft Picks

It also helps that former Wisconsin tight end - and Milwaukee native - Lance Kendricks was signed this offseason, giving the Packers two Badgers on their roster.

Yes, being a first-round pick is just plain different.

The Green Bay Packers finally made a pick in the National Football League draft, taking Washington cornerback Kevin King with the first selection of the second round on Friday to fill a big need on defense.

"That's a great idea", Yancey said, unable to hold back joyful laughter. Qualls was projected by NFL.com as a third or fourth-round prospect. Those rounds are the meat of your team.

After that trade with Cleveland, Green Bay was sitting with the first pick in Friday's second round. According to Pro Football Talk, only $25,000 of the money was guaranteed.

Wolf whiffed on his share of first-round picks.

The 2017 Packers NFL Draft will be remembered for trading out of the first round. The 6-foot, 212-pound running back is the 50th BYU player to be taken in one of the first four rounds and the 14th former Cougar to be a fourth-round pick. They took BYU's Jamaal Williams in the fourth round, Texas-El Paso's Aaron Jones in the fifth and Utah State's Devante Mays in the seventh to increase their backfield options for the 2017 season.

With a variety of needs on both sides of the ball, Thompson confessed that the Packers' roster was in danger of getting "a little stale" and "that would be my fault if it happened".

Maybe the sixth round, most started to think. "I'd say, with having the visit there, it definitely weighed into my decision". "A one-two punch, or three headed or four headed monster with they backs they already have, I'm just excited to get up there".

Cops finally arrested Chris at his home a few hours later, and he was released after posting a $10,000 bond. Wolfgram said that Soules refused to answer his door for officers, telling them to contact his attorney.

The Packers looked to add depth on the defensive line in the third round, and picked Adams out of Auburn. He also has the versatility to play multiple positions, from outside corner to the slot to safety, and was a two-time All-Pac 12 honorable mention selection. Seven more (11.7 percent) were second-rounders. For starters, the Packers drafted 10 players in a 7 round draft.

Michael, 26, was the Seahawks' leading rusher when they released him in November.

"The 6'3" King led the Huskies with 13 pass break-ups this past season, and hauled in three interceptions during his senior season. Cook is a big-play guy and the Vikings, of course, let go of Adrian Peterson this year.

Spencer Hall gave the Jones pick a "C" grade, not liking it quite as much as the Williams selection. I'd like to get one or two.

The odds of that happening will be greatly improved if Thompson's magic touch on later picks has returned.

"One of our goals this year was to try to get faster", director of football operations Eliot Wolf said. "I was basically committed before the draft ended, so it was mid-seventh round when I chose to go with the Packers".

Offensive guard Forrest Lamp (Western Kentucky), who had 51 career starts, went to the Los Angeles Chargers at No. 38 one pick after wide receiver Zay Jones (East Carolina) was selected by the Buffalo Bills.

What do you think of this selection?
