Green Bay - desperate for a healthy running back - signed him nearly immediately and in March re-signed him for 2017 after he showed some burst sharing carries with Montgomery in six regular-season and three playoff games.
With Yancey (6-2, 201), the statistic that jumps out is his 19.4 yards per catch in 2016.
Williams finish fifth in the country with 137.5 yards per game previous year.
So what does the Packers secondary look like after Friday's makeover added King and Jones to the mix?
Just two days after selecting three running backs in the 2017 draft, the Green Bay Packers have already released both Michael and Jackson.
The Packers sent the 29th overall pick to the Browns to move back four spots to the first pick of Friday's second round (No. 33).
With the selection of Biegel, the Packers addressed a need at outside linebacker - they lost Julius Peppers and Datone Jones in free agency - with an instinctive, hardworking and productive pass rusher who was a fan favorite at Wisconsin and will no doubt be a popular player in Green Bay. He was a state player of the year, and second-team All-Big Ten. "I think he had his own identity", Highsmith said.
The Green Bay Packers drafted three running backs in the 2017 NFL Draft after they claim that Ty Montgomery is still their starting running back. It will be intriguing to see which teams come forward with interest in signing the former workhorse running back.
Jones set a single-season program record by amassing 1,773 yards rushing on 229 carries (7.7 avg.) and 17 rushing touchdowns (third most in program history) during his redshirt junior season in 2016.
In the fifth round, they selected Aaron Jones of UTEP.
But the rest of the Packers' roster was inconsistent with the stat Highsmith saw on the draft-room TV.
The double-up in the second round as well as the selection of Auburn defensive tackle Montravius Adams in the third round (No. 93) after sitting out the first night was just the start Thompson wanted for Green Bay's draft. For his efforts, Amichia was named an All-American Athletic Conference first team offensive tackle as a senior.
The Green Bay Packers finally made a pick in the National Football League draft, taking Washington cornerback Kevin King with the first selection of the second round on Friday to fill a big need on defense. He is now two-hundred and twenty pounds and still runs a 4.4. After allowing more than 4,600 passing yards in the regular season, the Packers imploded one last time by giving up 392 yards and four touchdowns to quarterback Matt Ryan in the Atlanta Falcons' 44-21 NFC Championship rout three months ago.
Before transferring to Utah State, Mays spent one year at Blinn (Texas) Junior College after spending another at Tyler (Texas) Junior College.
That would be enough excitement for anyone, but the news Adams was heading to the Packers came just hours after he became a father for the first time.
The Packers selected LSU receiver Malachi Dupre with the second of their two seventh-round picks (No. 247 overall) on Saturday.
