Run on Washington DBs highlights 2nd round of National Football League draft

Fans gather before the second round of the 2017 NFL football draft Friday Fans gather before the second round of the 2017 NFL football draft Friday

We always put a huge emphasis on our players making the jump in your first to second year or second to third year. But the single-high teams, the teams that play a lot of high free safety, are gonna love him. The former farmhand has talked openly about how his blue-collar roots have helped him on the football field, which surely will endear him to Packers fans.

More than three months later, the Packers apparently can't get that game out of their heads.

"I think I can definitely improve as a pass rusher, but being able to pass rush is one of the strengths of my game", Biegel said.

Packers personnel executive Alonzo Highsmith spoke to the media on Saturday and compared Biegel to Watt.

"We're not going to rush anything", Jones said on conference call, adding: "I don't think I should have any problem coming back". "He made a name for himself".

The Packers hope they've done that in part by drafting Kevin King, a 6-foot-3 cornerback from Washington, with the first pick of the second round on Friday. Green Bay - desperate for a healthy running back - signed him nearly immediately and in March re-signed him for 2017 after he showed some burst sharing carries with Montgomery in six regular-season and three playoff games. Wide Receiver Malachi Dupre of LSU has already played on the tundra, when his Tigers took on the Wisconsin Badgers last September. King had a 40-yard dash time of 4.43 seconds according to NFL.com. Last season Green Bay finished 31st in pass defense, and lost safety Micah Hyde to the Buffalo Bills in free agency.

Turnovers. King forced eight turnovers in four years at Washington, and had five interceptions over his final two seasons.

The Green Bay Packers needed Vince Biegel.

The Packers chose Yancey with pick No. 175 overall after trading back three spots. That pretty much ended Michael's brief stint with the Packers. They received one additional pick from the Browns for that move. Abbrederis, who battled multiple injuries over three seasons, was eventually released.

Of the players who attended the draft but weren't selected Thursday, King was the only one to show up again Friday.

"I grew up in the state of Wisconsin", Biegel said. It's too early to say the Packers blew it in the draft two years ago, but the early returns aren't good. Friday's showing just edged that of UW's 2015 draft class, which had four players selected in the draft's first 44 picks - Danny Shelton, Marcus Peters and Shaq Thompson in the first round, and Hau'oli Kikaha at No. 44 in the second.
