GREEN BAY–Baylor cornerback Demetri Goodson is the Packers’ sixth-round draft choice.
Goodson, 5-11, 194, twice suffered season-ending injuries. The most recent was in 2012.
He made 43 tackles (38 solo), 19 passes defensed and four interceptions in 19 career games played. He’s a former basketball player that transferred to Baylor from Gonzaga.
Goodson ran a 4.52 40 at the combine in Feb.
“Tough, athletic corner with nice size and speed and good mechanics. Fluid, quick and rangy. Special teams type,” packers.com draft analyst Tony Pauline said.
His older brother, Mike, has played running back with the Panthers, Raiders and Jets.
