USF's Kofi Amichia drafted by Packers in 6th round

Washington’s Kevin King center poses with former Green Bay Packers Jim Taylor right and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell after King was selected by the Packers during the second round of the 2017 NFL football draft Friday in Philadelphia

Plus, the Packers, who acquired the spot from Cleveland in a deal Thursday night through which the Browns got Miami tight end David Njoku, were ravaged by injuries in the secondary last season.

SI praises Green Bay's class with the only question mark being the selection of Montravius Adams in the third round.

And having the same first name as Green Bay's legendary coach Lombardi doesn't hurt. "And, Kevin was the guy that we didn't want to lose". At 6-foot-3, King was thought to be a potential target for Seattle based on cornerbacks selected in the past by the Seahawks, but was taken by Green Bay one selection ahead where Seattle was scheduled to pick. His style of play at times might seem reckless and lack discipline (think a young Nick Collins), but the Packers picked Jones at a position where they already have two solid starters - Burnett and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix - because they see something more in Jones. On the season, he rushed for 259 yards on 37 carries (7.0 ypc) and three touchdowns, which included a career-high 208 yards on 18 carries and a career-high-tying three touchdowns in the season-opener against Weber State (9/1). Jones might even have something to say about that as he might have a key pick that decides things one way or another. "Right now I'm trying to fight back the tears". But having said that, I wasn't aware that we drafted that many defensive players.

Despite losing versatile nickel back Micah Hyde in free agency, the Packers were determined not to be caught short in the secondary again.

For the Packers, who run more sub-packages on defense than base 3-4 formations, he should find a comfortable home. "We do feel like we got better, and we have a chance to grow and kind of spread our wings a little bit". "Once I told them they pretty much were laughing and praised me in saying that I'm strong and praised for sticking it out at BYU because I could have went somewhere else". Alvin is a starting linebacker for UTEP, and the twins have been playing football together since age 5 in Clarksville, Tenn.

Mays is the fourth former Aggie tailback scooped up in the National Football League draft in the last six years, joining Robert Turbin (fourth round, 2012), Michael Smith (seventh, 2012) and Kerwynn Williams (seventh, 2013).

Trump said in the interview he wants South Korea to pay the cost of the THAAD, which he estimated at US$1 billion (RM4.3 billion). The combat exercise was carried out east of Okinawa prefecture and involved two Japanese F-15 fighters with two of the US Navy.

Cornerback Kevin King and safety Josh Jones both bring size and speed.

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

With his selection, Williams becomes the fourth BYU running back and 28th Cougar offensive player to be selected in one of the first four rounds of the annual NFL Draft. "Once we got that down, we started clicking".

The trio of King, Baker and Jones give the Huskies five defensive backs drafted in the first or second round in the past five years.

This marks 20 straight years that a Boilermaker has been drafted to the NFL, which is pretty awesome considering we went through the worst era of Purdue football the past 4 seasons. At the very least, by drafting three running backs the Packers added depth position that has been a frequent issue since the days of Ahman Green. Ten total picks. The first four on defense, the final six on offense.

"I just think that's the way the game's going".
