Focus turns to offense on day three, draft trio of wide receivers

30 April 2018, 03:37 | Hattie Nash



At 6-foot-1, 192 pounds, the Packers like Jackson's physical ability. He ended the season with 48 total tackles to go along with eight interceptions, two defensive touchdowns, and 18 defended passes.

The Packers made a trade earlier in the evening with the Saints, getting New Orleans's No. 27 pick and fifth-round pick in the 2018 draft.

Green Bay has 11 picks remaining in the final two days of the draft.

But they hope that they've shored up their pass coverage after adding Iowa cornerback Josh Jackson in the second round.

The Packers were also tied for No. 20 in the National Football League in interceptions, which is where Jackson likely comes into play. But at least they have one on day two.

If there's a story to be told down the road about General Manager Brian Gutekunst's first draft, it'll focus on the players picked and not on the room he commanded. They wanted a corner and get a darn good one.

Whether you believe in fate, destiny, God, the universe, nothing at all, or another entity, deity, or philosophy altogether, we can all agree: It's amusing how things work out. That is a big deal because many believe that next year's class will be even deeper.

With the 133rd overall pick in the fourth round, the Packers selected wide receiver J'Mon Moore, the only Mizzou player to attend the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine this year. Although he wasn't a first-rounder, he will still be just as big as a player as he is set out to be.

"I'm so happy and it's such a surreal feeling", Jackson said of being drafted by a organization that will keep the Texas native in the Midwest.

"He played a lot of zone defense at Iowa.he basically started for one year.this is a guy who looks the part, and boy, last year, he certainly played the part", said WTMJ Packers Radio Network voice Wayne Larrivee.

The Packers selected a long snapper in the seventh round.

"The Packers showed some interest the last few days and they were the first ones to have an offer ready", said Gibson, who is from Beardsley, Minn., and grew up a Minnesota Vikings fan.
