Packers fortify wide receiver with selection of Davante Adams

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on May 9, 2014 – 7:43 pm

140509-adams-300GREEN BAY–The Packers turned their attention to offense and the loss of James Jones in free agency by selecting Fresno State wide receiver Davante Adams with the 53rd pick of the 2014 NFL draft on Friday. Adams, 6-1, 212, is the Packers’ first pick of day two of the draft, after having selected safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in the first round on Thursday.

“Nice-sized possession wide out,” packers.com draft analyst Tony Pauline said of Adams. “Competes and wins out for contested balls. Strong and tough.”

Tight ends Troy Niklas and Jace Amaro came off the board within the previous four picks, and center Weston Richburg was selected 43rd overall by the Giants. Tight end, center and inside linebacker are considered to be positions of need for the Packers, but so were safety and wide receiver.

Adams ran a 4.56 40 at the combine.
