The Green Bay Packers’ second pick of the third day of the 2019 NFL Draft is in. After picking up a versatile defensive lineman in round five, the Packers went with XX with pick 185 in round six.

With that pick, they have made cornerback Ka’Dar Hollman from Toledo the newest member of the Packers. Hollman had a pre-draft visit with the Packers, making him the second such player in this year’s draft class along with third-round pick Jace Sternberger.

Hollman brings exceptional speed to the Packers’ cornerback group, running an estimated 4.36-second 40 at Toledo’s Pro Day. At 6 feet and 196 pounds, he has good size as well, and he bench pressed 225 pounds 18 times. Hollman is also an explosive athlete, with a 38.5-inch vertical.

Check out Hollman’s speed in this clip from the 2016 season, when he chased down a receiver from all the way across the field:

Although Hollman had just two interceptions in three years as a starter, he was productive in breaking up passes, averaging nine breakups per year. He walked on at Toledo as well, and now he is a sixth-round draft pick.
