Green Bay Packers Look To USF And Draft Kofi Amichia

Despite the fact that the Packers have five running backs all capable of competing for playing time, they should still consider signing former Kansas City Chiefs' star Jamaal Charles. The need for options in the backfield was filled with three running back selections, starting with BYU's Jamaal Williams (No. 134) in the fourth round, followed by Aaron Jones of UTEP (No. 182) in the fifth, and finally Devonte May from Utah State (No. 238) in the seventh. In two seasons with the Rebels, he passed for 6,800 yards and 50 touchdowns.

"It was just putting the time in, getting that connection with my quarterback", Yancey said. "We felt like it was important to get a little more oomph out of it".

"One of our goals this year was to try to get faster", said Packers director of football operations Eliot Wolf.

"He's got excellent hands", Wolf said.

A first-team Pac-12 selection in 2016 and Sports Illustrated and Football Writers second team All-America pick, Jones had three interceptions last season and made 145 tackles, eight interceptions and six forced fumbles in 40 career games as a Husky. Mixon was uninvited to the scouting combine because he was videotaped punching a woman in the face, breaking bones.

"It kind of motivated me to do well at my pro day", he said.

"I'm definitely up to it", King said. "He thought he was a player from Day 1". "You got to have guys that can run and chase. It's something that really stood out, and obviously the (game) video was good". I have been excited about the way he plays because he is a tenacious player.

Of all the snaps played by the Green Bay Packers' beleaguered defense during the 2016 season, one stands out. The two met at the Senior Bowl, becoming friends, and they share an agent.

One of the benefits of going to the Packers is the knowledge that Jones will be on a team that has Aaron Rodgers and believes that it should be a playoff team every year.

Jones will be leaving his best friend and twin brother behind in El Paso, though. They call Josh Jones "versatile" and Biegel "underrated".

Williams enters the National Football League after a record-breaking season where he became the school's career rushing leader with 726 carries and 3,901 yards.

"He was a guy that didn't run small".

In USU's home and season opener against Weber State, Mays exploded for 213 yards rushing and three scores on just 18 attempts.

The most notable selection occurred when the Bengals took Mixon at No. 48 overall. I was watching him before I played this past fall and he gave me a lot of motivation with the way he plays. Last season Green Bay finished 31st in pass defense, and lost safety Micah Hyde to the Buffalo Bills in free agency. "He certainly could have helped last January, when [Dez] Bryant and [Julio] Jones combined for 312 receiving yards and four touchdowns [in the playoffs] against Green Bay's outgunned cornerback group". "Once I told them they pretty much were laughing and praised me in saying that I'm strong and praised for sticking it out at BYU because I could have went somewhere else".
