CLEVELAND, OHIO (KELO) — Green Bay used the twenty-ninth pick of the NFL Draft to select Georgia cornerback, Eric Stokes.

According to NFL Network, the Packers team needs are cornerback, defensive lineman, wide receiver, inside linebacker and outside linebacker.

Green Bay assisted with their team needs on Thursday by selecting Stokes.

Stokes is a 6’1 cornerback from the SEC, which means he has been tested against a lot of talented wide receivers in his college career.

Green Bay’s next pick will be #62 or round two, number 30.
