Bison lineman bypassed in National Football League draft, signs as free agent with Packers


03 May, 2017

After the Packers' season ended with a 44-21 blowout against the offensively explosive Atlanta Falcons, it appears their aim is to inject athleticism and improve the defense. He is the second-straight offensive player taken by Green Bay. We had a fullback, a tight end and sometimes we played with double tight ends and a fullback. "And, Kevin was the guy that we didn't want to lose". They jeered Cincinnati's selection of Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon and even Cleveland's pick of Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer.

"If you look at old pictures of me growing up, I was always wearing green and gold", Biegel said. Charles could be the workhorse every down back that the Packers have been needing and would provide some speed and playmaking that the backfield in Green Bay hasn't had in a few years.

After Mays almost rushed for a 1,000 yards as a junior, an injury limited him to only six games as a senior, gaining 259 yards and three touchdowns on 37 attempts (7.0 yards per carry).

From his 13th draft as Packers GM, Thompson is counting on King, Josh Jones and Adams to be good players.

"I'm definitely up to it", King said. King stands at 6-foot-3, weighing 200 pounds, and ran the 40-yard dash in the 4.3 range at the scouting combine.

They are unsettled at the top of the depth chart after releasing oft-injured No. 1 cornerback Sam Shields in February, allowing the versatile Micah Hyde to sign with the Buffalo Bills in free agency and still waiting on the development of a young group of returnees. They already have an elite safety tandem in Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Morgan Burnett and the third-year cornerbacks - Gunter, Randall and Rollins - can't be written off despite being plagued by injury and ineffectiveness last season.

Green Bay also brought back veteran cornerback Davon House in the offseason as a free agent after he spent the last two years in Jacksonville.

LeBron and Cavaliers sweep away Pacers
Kyrie Irving added 28 points, Deron Williams scored 14 and Kevin Love had five points and 16 rebounds. In Game 1, the Pacers had the opportunity to make a go-ahead basket with eight seconds remaining.

Three picks after King, Baker was selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the 36 overall selection.

For the Packers, who run more sub-packages on defense than base 3-4 formations, he should find a comfortable home.

"He's a very good tackler in space and in the box", said Gutekunst. He needs to work a little bit on his celebrations. Different people value different players differently, so I wouldn't expect my grades to match the grades of other folks out there. He likes playing football.

Many didn't think that we would hear a Boilermaker's name get called today.

After a stint with Dallas in 2015, Michael returned to the Seahawks last season and played well. Jones said. "I feel like he (Williams) has bigger back characteristics and I have smaller back characteristics". I've been hearing so much about Lambeau Field, about the fans, all the great cheeseheads out there.

Jones led NCSU with 109 tackles and three interceptions while ranking second with eight pass breakups as a redshirt junior.

The double-up in the second round as well as the selection of Auburn defensive tackle Montravius Adams in the third round (No. 93) after sitting out the first night was just the start Thompson wanted for Green Bay's draft.
