Packers grab defensive back, wide receiver on draft's second day
The makeover of the Packers secondary continued Friday as the team selected Quinten Rollins from Miami (Ohio) with their second round selection (62nd overall).
Rollins was a four-year basketball player at Miami University, but with a semester of eligibility remaining, decided to play football last fall for the first time since high school. Rollins has been praised for his quickness and athleticism on the gridiron, but drat analysts also say he's a very physical football player.
Rollins, like first round pick Damarious Randall, will likely play at cornerback for the Packers, who lost veteran corners Tramon Williams and Davon House to free agency.
The Packers pulled off a bit of a surprise with their third round selection, switching back to offense to select wide receiver Ty Montgomery from Stanford with the 94th overall selection. Montgomery had a disappointing senior season at Stanford, with just 604 yards receiving and three touchdown catches. But the talent was evident in Montgomery's 10-TD catch season as a junior.
The final four rounds of the NFL draft take place Saturday in Chicago.
