Draft Day 3: Packers take former Badger, offensive skill players

Green Bay -

GREEN BAY - the third and final day of the NFL Draft was Ted Thompson's busiest, and years from now, we might look at this day as the most productive of the three-day 2017 draft.

The Packers started the day by taking former Badgers linebacker Vince Biegel, a captain with Wisconsin in his senior year. Biegel was the first pick of the fourth round, and up to that point, the Packers had taken nothing but defensive players.

From there, though, Green Bay flipped the script and filled out their roster with a flurry of offensive skill player selections. BYU running back Jamaal Williams was a fourth round selection, bringing size to a position of need for the Pack. Wide receiver Deangelo Yancey from Purdue went to Green Bay in the fifth round, followed a short time later by running back Aaron Jones from UTEP.

Kofi Amichia, an offensive lineman from South Florida, was the Pack's lone sixth round selection.

Green Bay used its seventh round selections on running back Devante Mays from Utah State, and wide receiver Malachi Dupre from LSU, a potential steal who many experts saw as a fourth round selection.
