Packers load up on defense during day two of NFL Draft

After an All America career at Auburn Montravius Adams will follow the NFL Draft from his home in Vienna Ga

Green Bay also booted UDFA Don Jackson, who rushed for 32 yards in limited action when the team was severely depleted at RB past year.

His childhood dream has come true. "I think that's the combination you need to succeed". He said, "He (Jones) is really versatile, has shown great speed and we are excited". They haven't drafted an offensive player in the first round since tackle Derek Sherrod (No. 32) in 2011. And at 6-foot-3, King is taller than Minnesota's Stefon Diggs and Detroit's Golden Tate. Biegel also fits into the team's recent philosophy of drafting players with the potential to play multiple positions.

Don't take them too seriously, though. He ranked ninth in tackles and 11th in passes defensed in the conference.

"It's all kinds of different people out there and different substitutional patterns", general manager Ted Thompson said Friday.

Green Bay also has three returning running back on its offseason roster in Ty Montgomery, Christine Michael and Don Jackson.

Defense was the focus again on Saturday, taking linebacker Vince Biegel with their first of two fourth-round picks.

With their own second-round pick, the Packers drafted N.C. State safety Josh Jones at No. 61.

Amid reports of US NAFTA pullout, Mexico leaned on diplomacy
That's a whole other show you could do, but it's not just NAFTA. "It would be devastating to see that relationship undermined". While I know NAFTA has devastated many communities, maybe unwinding NAFTA in a way that isn't prudent can do even more damage.

He could be a replacement for Micah Hyde, who excelled in a cornerback-safety role the past four seasons before leaving in free agency for Buffalo. The one thing that Jones must work on is tackling, as he missed 13 tackles a year ago.

Denver began Round 5 by taking MI tight end Jake Butt, a potential first-rounder until he tore up his knee in the Orange Bowl. "Having players that can play multiple positions and can move around.is something we're definitely leaning towards".

The Huskies' four selections in the first 43 picks of this draft are the most in program history - just ahead of the four players (Danny Shelton, Marcus Peters, Shaq Thompson and Hau'oli Kikaha) selected in the first 44 picks in 2015.

The Packers looked to add depth on the defensive line in the third round, and picked Adams out of Auburn.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The final day of the National Football League draft began with an impromptu rendition of "Fly Eagles Fly" by former Philadelphia star safety Brian Dawkins and ended with a player who was far from irrelevant in college being picked last. He helped the Gulf Coast Offense set school records with 77 touchdowns, 47 rushing touchdowns (second in the FBS), 3,714 rushing yards and 6,650 yards of total offense, while ranking in the top 20 in the nation in sacks allowed (1.15). He was not at the combine, but did make a predraft visit to the Packers. In 2008, Thompson traded back from No. 30 in a deal with the New York Jets and selected Kansas State wide receiver Jordy Nelson with the 36th overall pick.

"Oh, I'm pretty sure when he saw the 4.4's and the 4.39's he was like, "I'm fired up", Packers Senior Personnel Executive Alonzo Highsmith said.

Despite the fact that the Packers have five running backs all capable of competing for playing time, they should still consider signing former Kansas City Chiefs' star Jamaal Charles.
