New, comments

Cary Edmondson-US PRESSWIRE

The Green Bay Packers were on the clock with the 53rd overall selection, the 21st pick of the second round in the 2014 NFL Draft. With that pick, the Packers have selected...

Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State

After taking safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in round one yesterday, the Packers elected to give Aaron Rodgers a new weapon to throw to in the second round by taking a talented wide receiver prospect in  round two. Adams' build and speed is similar to James Jones, and he should be able to contribute immediately on offense in Jones' old spot on the outside.

Here are his numbers from the Scouting Combine:

Height: 6'1
Weight: 212
Bench reps: 14
40 time: 4.56
Vertical:39.5"
Broad jump: 123"
3-cone: 6.82
20-yard shuttle: 4.30

The Packers will be up next in Round 3 with the 85th overall pick.

Here is the full list of the Packers' 2014 draft picks at this point in time:

Round Pick Player Position School
1 21 Ha Ha Clinton-Dix S Alabama
