GREEN BAY–The Packers addressed an ongoing need for defensive linemen by selecting Khyri Thornton of Southern Mississippi with their first of two third-round draft choices on Thursday. Thornton, 6-3, 304, was selected with the 85th overall pick.

Thornton is a defensive tackle that will likely play defensive end in the Packers’ 3-4 defensive scheme.

“Classic three-technique tackle. Quick, explosive. Probably a two-gap end,” packers.com draft analyst Tony Pauline said of Thornton.

Thornton has been described as one of the most underrated players in the draft.

Packers.com has provided a full report on the third round.
