Packers Sign Top Draft Choice King

Antigo, WI, United States /

(Green Bay, WI)  —  The Green Bay Packers have signed their top draft choice. Corner Kevin King has become the sixth of the Packers’ ten selections to sign rookie contracts and he’s the N-F-L’s highest overall pick to sign as of Thursday night at Number 33. The Packers did not have a first round pick, after general manager Ted Thompson traded down four spots to get King in the second round and the team got one additional selection in the process. Signing draft choices used to be more dramatic, as some held out until the start of Training Camp and beyond but the latest NFL collective bargaining agreement ended that, with standard four year rookie deals and a salary scale that’s not mandatory for teams to follow. Green Bay has still not signed four of its picks, second round safety Josh Jones, third round defensive lineman Montravius Adams, fourth round running back Jamaal Williams and fourth round linebacker Vince Biegel.
