Kevin King on Packers: 'They're Getting a Leader, They're Getting a Playmaker'

When Green Bay added outside linebacker Vince Biegel with the first pick on Saturday in the fourth round, it was a fourth consecutive selection on the defensive side of the ball, which needed the most attention following last season's run to the NFC title game. I just want to be able to have the opportunity to get another championship because thats what its about: its about winning championships. He can do it all and is a great person and teammate.

Washington's Kevin King, left, greets former Green Bay Packers Jim Taylor after King was selected by the Packers during the second round of the 2017 NFL football draft, Friday, April 28, 2017, in Philadelphia.

DeAneglo Yancey was drafted in the 5th round with the 175th overall pick to the Green Bay Packers (Juan is excited). Biegel closed out his Badgers career with 191 stops and 21.5 sacks - the latter good for seventh all-time at UW. However, wide receiver Ty Montgomery converted back to running back - a position he played in college - and ran away with the job.

Aaron Jones is the second running back to join the Green Bay Packers in the draft, following Jamaal Williams to Titletown. Jones might even have something to say about that as he might have a key pick that decides things one way or another. King has been part of a tremendous secondary which featured Budda Baker and Sidney Jones a year ago, along with Marcus Peters in 2015. If not for a couple mid-round hits in Mike Daniels (fourth round, 2012) and Micah Hyde (fifth round, 2013), Thompson would have nearly nothing to show for the 23-pick parade the last five years.

The Green Bay Packers signed veteran offensive guard Jahri Evans onWednesday, filling a hole in their O-line after the loss of right guard T.J. Lang in free agency. He was ranked fourth in the FBS with 1,773 yards rushing in 2016. In 786 total touches, Williams lost just two fumbles in his career. He tied a school record by playing in 54 games, with 40 starts. They gave up almost 300 passing yards per game - also tops in the league - and couldn't stop a a Pop Warner offense.

A junior entry, the 6-foot-2, 196-pound receiver led LSU in receptions and receiving yards in each of the past two seasons (43 catches for 698 yards and six touchdowns in 2015 and 41 catches for 593 yards and three touchdowns in 2016). Baker has been referenced as a possible slot cornerback in the National Football League, but was regularly compared to Mathieu during his time at Washington.
