GREEN BAY – The Packers need a third running back for 2021, and they used their last pick of the draft to add some competition to the mix.

Green Bay chose Mississippi State running back Kylin Hill with their ninth and final selection, at No. 256 overall in the seventh round.

Hill (5-11, 215) played just three games in 2020 but had his biggest season in 2019, rushing 242 times for 1,350 yards and 10 touchdowns to earn first-team All-Southeastern Conference from the media and second-team honors from the league's coaches.

That was after compiling more than 1,000 rushing yards in his first two seasons combined.

He also has receiving skills, posting 67 receptions for 631 yards and six TDs in his college career. He fumbled only once in 481 career touches, that coming during his freshman season.
