The Green Bay Packers addressed the secondary depth with their first seventh-round pick but now they’ll look to build the depth along the defensive line.
These seventh-round picks are going to come fast as there’s a total of four of them and they are pretty close to each other. The Packers took Tariq Carpenter with the 228th pick and quickly took Miami’s Jonathan Ford with the 234th pick.
The Packers acquired the 234th pick when they traded down with the Denver Broncos for the 171st pick. In return, the Packers received the 179th pick, which was used for South Carolina edge rusher Kingsley Enagbare, and the 234th pick.

Ford, 6-5, 318, played in eight games in his senior season for the Hurricanes and recorded 14 tackles. In his career, he totaled 60 tackles, three sacks (all came in 2019) and one forced fumble.
This is Green Bay’s second defensive tackle taken in the draft. The first came with the 28th pick in Georgia’s Devonte Wyatt. The Packers will have Kenny Clark, Wyatt, Jarran Reed, Dean Lowry, T.J. Slaton and Jack Heflin on the depth chart.
