The Green Bay Packers were on the clock with the 85th overall selection, the 21st pick of the second round in the 2014 NFL Draft. With that pick, the Packers have selected...
Khyri Thornton, DT, Southern Miss
Thornton played all over the defensive line for the Golden Eagles and was a three-year starter. He will likely be a depth piece on the Packers' line at one of the end positions and potentially as an interior rusher in substitution packages.
The Packers picked Thornton over fellow defensive line prospect Brent Urban of Virginia and defensive back Pierre Desir.
The Packers will be up next in Round 3 with the 98th overall pick, a compensatory selection.
Here are his numbers from the Scouting Combine:
Bench reps: 28
40 time: 5.03
Broad jump: 112.0
20-yard shuttle: 4.76
