The Green Bay Packers have defense on the mind on Friday night.
With the 61st overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, the Packers go in the secondary for the second straight pick. The team selects North Carolina safety Josh Jones to help out a secondary that should big weaknesses in 2016.
Jones had a 4.41 40-yard dash, add him to the earlier pick of cornerback Kevin King and we are seeing this football team getting faster in the secondary. He will hope to come in and help Ha Ha Clinton Dix in the defensive backfield.
With 61st overall pick, #Packers use their original 2nd-round pick to NC State safety Josh Jones. A 4.41 40. Yes, they're getting faster.

The first two picks by the Packers doesn’t come to much of a surprise as the defense is the unit that needs the most help. I would expect to see running back with their next selection after the two defensive picks.
Welcome Lambeau Josh Jones!
