On Friday night, The Green Bay Packers traded their first of three fourth-round selections in the 2016 NFL Draft in a package to move up for offensive tackle Jason Spriggs. However, they still have two other fourth-rounders which cannot be traded as they are compensatory picks.

With the second of those selections, the Packers have used the 137th overall selection to choose:

Dean Lowry

Defensive End, Northwestern

Height: 6'6"
Weight: 296 pounds

Breakdown:

Lowry was an intricate part of the Northwestern defense as a senior in 2015, recording 46 total tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss and three sacks. NFL.com says he can play multiple positions on the defensive line and is a solid fit as a 3-4 defensive end.

One of the best athletes among interior defensive linemen in the draft, Lowry could slide right in and contribute for the Packers at the five-technique. He can fill a role on the Packers defensive line as a situational pass rusher with upside to possibly become a starter down the line.

Reaction:

The Packers are scheduled to be on the clock again in round five with pick #163.
