Packers complete ten-pick weekend at NFL Draft


The Green Bay Packers added needed depth at various positions at the 2017 NFL Draft, addressing offseason needs with ten selections across the seven rounds.

The first pick of the second round belonged to the green and gold, and they went with Washington cornerback Kevin King. Their second pick of that round featured NC State safety Josh Jones, filling two defensive backfield needs after that unit's poor showing in Atlanta in last year's NFC Championship Game.

The team had one third round pick, taking Auburn defensive tackle Montravius Adams.

The third day, with four rounds in all, saw the Packers make seven picks. They started with Wisconsin linebacker Vince Biegel, and added Jamaal Williams, a running back from BYU, in the fourth round. Two more running backs followed - UTEP's Aaron Jones (fifth round) and Utah State's Devante Mays (seventh round).

Green Bay tabbed two wide receivers on Saturday - fifth-rounder Deangelo Yancey from Purdue and LSU's Malachi Dupre in the seventh round.

Completing the draft picture was South Florida offensive tackle Kofi Amichia in the sixth round.
