Packers take CB King with first selection of second round

Packers take CB King with first selection of second round

Green Bay traded the 29th overall pick in the first round to Cleveland for the 33rd overall pick to take King, as well as first pick of the fourth round on Saturday, the 108th overall.

Going into the draft, King's stock has been all over the map.

John Ross III, the speedy UW receiver, went No. 9 overall to the Cincinnati Bengals during Thursday's first round. This move also will take the Packers down to 62 players on the active roster, not including the team's 10 draft picks and the reported undrafted free agent signings, whose contracts have not yet been finalized.

Jacksonville traded up one spot to select Alabama junior offensive tackle Cam Robinson 34th, followed by the Seattle Seahawks making Michigan State defensive tackle Malik McDowell their initial pick in this draft. Desmond Trufant (No. 22 in 2013) and Peters (No. 18 in 2015) are the others. It was his 4.43 40-yard dash, vertical leap of 39.5 inches, and three-cone drill and 20-yard shuttle times that were the fastest of any players at the combine that really turned heads. He waited and waited with his family in the green room but never heard his name called during the first round.

"I wasn't leaving here without a hat".

Pittsburgh leads the best-of-seven second-round series 1-0. "Four goals, that's absolutely sick", Senators coach Guy Boucher said. The NHL's Eastern Conference semifinals have begun with victories by the Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators .

According to his Twitter, King was the last of the National Football League hopefuls to remain in the green room in Philly.

The Packers selected LSU receiver Malachi Dupre with the second of their two seventh-round picks (No. 247 overall) on Saturday.

Washington was one of the best defensive teams in college football in 2016, averaging a Pac-12-leading 17.7 points per game allowed, and the secondary was perhaps the biggest strength of a program that won a conference title and played Alabama in a national semifinal game.

While he'll be busy at home with a newborn, he'll also be tested on the field after joining a large group of defensive linemen that includes Mike Daniels, Letroy Guion, Ricky Jean Francios, and last year's first round pick Kenny Clark.

In the buildup to the draft, Baker had often been compared to the Cardinals' Tyrann Mathieu - and now they'll play together in the same secondary.

"I feel great about it", he said.

Jones' status was more tenuous.

"Jones has good size at 6'1" and 215 pounds. "I was a cheesehead, and I was as probably the most Wisconsin as you can be", Biegel said. "I dreamed about being a Wisconsin Badger first - and then obviously became a Badger - and I dreamed of one day playing in the NFL".

Roseman said he sees Jones as a "difference maker". "There's a small margin for error with being 6'3" and athletic so that gives me an advantage when the ball is in the air and definitely at the line as well", said Kevin King.
