Green Bay Packers grab CB Kevin King at No. 33

Green Bay Packers grab CB Kevin King at No. 33

Jamaal Williams knows where he is headed after a successful college career at BYU: the Green Bay Packers selected the Cougars' all-time leading rusher in the fourth round (134th overall pick) of the 2017 National Football League draft on Saturday in Philadelphia.

Help the NFL's second-worst pass defense? He had 15 ½ sacks combined in the two years prior to that.

They made themselves potentially more dynamic on defense, and they loaded up at running back.

Green Bay selected Purdue wide receiver DeAngelo Yancey with the first of two fifth-round picks on Saturday. They then took running backs Aaron Jones from Texas-El Paso in the fifth round and Devante Mays from Utah State in the seventh. The 33-year-old Evans rejoined the Saints, but sent out a farewell tweet in the offseason after the club signed Larry Warford to a four-year, $34 million deal.

Add another wide receiver? They now have a pair of second-round picks, the other coming at No. 61, and are to close their night with a third-round choice at No. 93.

Whether those players will turn out to be the right ones, of course, remains to be seen. With the Packers defense ranked 31st in passing yards a year ago, general manager Ted Thompson decided the time is now to fix the problem. "I think we got the tallest corner in the draft and one that runs really fast".

Huge cyber attacks reported worldwide
Cyber security experts argue that the NSA first discovered the vulnerability that has caused chaos almost around the world. The attack, circulated via email, corrupted accounts with "ransomware" files that locked users out of their computers.

This marks 20 straight years that a Boilermaker has been drafted to the NFL, which is pretty fantastic considering we went through the worst era of Purdue football the past 4 seasons. He might be able to add a little more weight to his frame, and when the day comes that the speed begins to decline, he has the flawless shape for a safety.

"Oh yeah, you can put that down", Thompson said.

After losing Micah Hyde in free agency and cutting ex-No.

NFL.com's Mike Mayock broke down King's game and it looks to be a good breakdown if you're a Packers' fan. For their troubles, they got the 33rd and 108th picks, giving Thompson the first picks tonight and tomorrow (when the fourth round begins).

There's obviously some disagreement on what position Amichia could play in the NFL.

WHAT A DAY: Possibly no pick in the draft had a better day than Packers' third-round selection Montravious Adams. In addition to the aforementioned trio, the team also has fellow running backs Christine Michael and Don Jackson on their current roster. While McCarthy again pronounced Montgomery as the starter, he'll have to fend off the youngsters.
