GREEN BAY–The Packers stayed with the big-guy theme, selecting Mississippi State defensive lineman Josh Boyd at the bottom of round five (167).
Boyd, 6-3, 310, started 41 of 51 games for the Bulldogs of the rugged SEC, where he was a penetrate-and-disrupt, three-technique tackle. He’ll attempt to fit into the Packers’ 3-4 scheme.
The selection of Boyd is the Packers’ fourth selection of a defensive lineman in the last two drafts.
