Packers wrap up with 2019 NFL Draft

The Packers opened up the third and final day of the 2019 NFL Draft with the 12th pick of the fifth round. They were one of the final teams in the NFL to make a Day 3 selection as Green Bay sent both of their fourth-round picks to Seattle to move up n the first round.

 

Green Bay drafted Kingsley Keke, a senior defensive tackle from Texas A&M. Keke tallied seven sacks in the SEC last season alone. The pick brings in another big body to the defensive lineman at 6’2” and 293 pounds.  The pick marked the second player the Packers drafted with their first four picks addressing the front-seven on the defense.

 

General Manager Brian Gutekunst added another member of the secondary with their first pick of the sixth round (#185). Ka'dar Hollman went from a walk-on at Toledo to the leader in the MAC with 12 breakups as a senior for the Rockets. At 6'0" and 190 pounds, Hollman ran the 40 in 4.34 seconds. Similar to the Packers' first-round selection Darnell Savage Jr., Hollman too has blazing speed.

 

The Packers then were back on the clock nine picks later. The offense got a boost with the selection of Notre Dame running back Dexter Williams. He led the Irish with 941 yards rushing with 12 touchdowns. Dexter "Juice" Williams stands 5'11" tall and 212 pounds and is known for a great burst. He will join Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams in the running back stable in Green Bay next season.

 

Green Bay's final selection in the draft was TCU inside linebacker Ty Summers. It was the fifth defensive selection our of Green Bay's eight picks. Summers was a two-time All Big 12 honorable mention selection.
