In the fifth round with the 141st overall pick, the Packers have drafted Arkansas tight end D.J. Williams.

Williams was the John Mackey Award winner in 2010 as the nation’s best tight end, when he posted 54 catches for 627 yards and four TDs. He had another 50-catch season in 2008.

A first-team All-Southeastern Conference pick last season, Williams helped lead Arkansas to the Sugar Bowl. He was a three-year starter.
