Packers Make First & Second Of Eight Picks On Final Day

Packers Make First & Second Of Eight Picks On Final Day

This was Brian Gutekunst's first draft as general manager after taking over for the retired Ted Thompson in January.

Green Bay no doubt needed to pick up a wide receiver in the draft this year after parting ways with Jordy Nelson this offseason. He is the first MU receiver to be selected in the draft since 2015, when the Rams picked Bud Sasser in the sixth round. Now, with Madison and some of the holdovers from last season, the urgency has subsided a bit, which is also the case at wide receiver, where the Packers were blunt and aggressive.

He'll join Alexander in what could be a dramatically improved secondary with new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine.

"He played a lot of zone defense at Iowa.he basically started for one year.this is a guy who looks the part, and boy, last year, he certainly played the part", said WTMJ Packers Radio Network voice Wayne Larrivee.

With the 207th overall choice, the Packers selected Equanimeous St.

"The athleticism, I'll keep going back and that. and the toughness, the ability to go down" to the line of scrimmage, Wojciechowski said of Burks.

Gutekunst says that adding competition will bring out the best in his players. They're getting a baller. There was even speculation that Jackson would be the Packers' first-round pick at the original No. 14 spot. For those that didn't know about Jackson heading into the draft, they now have heard from the man himself what they should expect.

Looney received a ton of advice during the pre-draft process from his older brother, Joe, an offensive lineman for the Dallas Cowboys who was a fourth-round pick in 2012.

Expect to see Jackson make an immediate impact for the Packers in 2018.

Green Bay also went cornerback in the first round on Thursday after choosing Louisville's Jaire Alexander with the 18th overall pick.
