Packers draft WR Davante Adams in 2nd round

Posted: Updated:
GREEN BAY (AP) -

The Packers have taken receiver Davante Adams in the second round of the NFL draft, supplying quarterback Aaron Rodgers with another target in a potent passing game.

Adams had 131 catches for 1,718 yards and 24 touchdowns last year in Fresno State's high-octane offense run by quarterback Derek Carr, himself selected in the second round by the Raiders.

Adams will join a Packers receiving corps led by Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. Jarrett Boykin also emerged last year as a target after Cobb got hurt.

Tight end may have been a more pressing need, but the top options were gone by the time the Packers were up with the 53rd overall pick.
