Many Packer fans had the Packers picking Ha Ha Clinton-Dix with the first round pick in the NFL draft. The Packers did just that. They drafted Alabama’s 6 foot 1, 208 pound safety with the 21st over-all pick in the draft. Ha Ha has the ability to play up at the line of scrimmage and drop back into coverage as he has good speed. The Packers used the 53rd pick in the draft to rebuild their receiving corps. They drafted Fresno State standout Davante Adams in the second round. Adams is a great possession wide receiver and will compete in jump ball situations. The Packers then added some beef with the 85th over-all pick. They drafted Southern Mississippi defensive tackle Khyri Thornton. Thornton, who stands at 6 foot 3 and weighs 304 pounds would add competition and is expected to push B.J. Raji to excel. The Packer’s final pick of the third round came at the 98th over-all pick. With that pick they selected 6 foot 4, 257 pound Tight End Richard Rodgers. Rodgers made a switch from tight-end to wide receiver while at California but he will play tight-end for the Packers. For 257 pounds, he has great speed. Also demonstrates very soft hands. The draft will continue this afternoon. The Packers have 5 more draft picks.
Wisconsin Badger inside linebacker Chris Borland is welcomed into the NFL. Borland was selected by the San Francisco 49ers at the 77th over-all pick in the draft.
