In need of help at the cornerback position, Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson selected defensive back Damarious Randall out of Arizona State with the 30th pick in the NFL Draft.
Randall, who ran a 4.46 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, played free safety for the Sun Devils, but will likely be part of the cornerback rotation with the Packers.
Green Bay lost corners Tramon Williams and Davon House to free agency, creating a depth issue in the defensive secondary.
Thompson described the 5’11’, 190-pounder as an “athlete”, “heady”, and “a football player”.
