Packers draft Wisconsin's Vince Biegel to begin Day 3

Biegel started 12 games for the Badgers in 2016 (he missed two with a broken foot) and was a key part of a unit that ranked No. 4 nationally in scoring defense, No. 7 in total defense and No. 3 in rushing defense.

"But the other thing is, he's a pretty intelligent football player". Thompson acquired an extra pick in one of the deepest drafts in memory. I just want to be able to have the opportunity to get another championship because thats what its about: its about winning championships.

For the second time since 2012, they selected defenders with each of their first three picks in the 2017 NFL Draft: cornerback Kevin King (No. 33), safety Josh Jones (No. 61) and defensive tackle Montravius Adams (No. 93).

Biegel, who got to play at Lambeau Field last fall in the Badgers' early-season victory over LSU, said he had been to the historic stadium many times before that. We saw several teams willing to give up substantial draft capital for a quarterback on Thursday, and with Notre Dame signal-caller DeShone Kizer still on the board, a QB-needy team could package a deal to Green Bay.

The 6-foot-3, 246-pound Biegel might not possess Watt's pure athleticism but he's no slouch, having clocked a 4.67 40 at the NFL Combine - which, for perspective, is the same time put up by Green Bay Pro Bowl linebacker Clay Matthews. A two-time, first-team all-league safety and a consensus All-America selection as a junior in 2016, Baker joins an Arizona defense that also features former Washington State safety Deone Bucannon, safety Tyrann Mathieu and cornerback Patrick Peterson - and as a member of an NFC West team, he is guaranteed one trip to Seattle every season. He'll need to prove he can be more physical and aggressive as a tackler, as well as show that his length is an asset and not a liability against quicker, shiftier receivers.

Trump Expected to Expand Laptop Ban to Flights From Europe, Officials Say
The airports affected include those in Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Morrroco, Qatar, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. If a ban is indeed coming, perhaps the DHS is giving airlines some time to prepare for such a hit to their operations.

King, who was drafted out of Washington, had 165 tackles, 22 pass break-ups and six interceptions in his collegiate career. The Packers also picked up the Browns' fourth-round spot at No. 108, which incidentally will be the first selection of the draft Saturday.

They are unsettled at the top of the depth chart after releasing oft-injured No. 1 cornerback Sam Shields in February, allowing the versatile Micah Hyde to sign with the Buffalo Bills in free agency and still waiting on the development of a young group of returnees. Jones added three more receiving scores, while tallying 2,006 all-purpose yards (fourth best single-season performance in school history).

The Packers had two more picks on Friday with their own selections in the second (61st overall) and third rounds (93rd overall).

After a stint with Dallas in 2015, Michael returned to the Seahawks last season and played well. Football is about explosiveness, speed, athletic ability.
