Packers draft guard from South Florida in sixth round

Kofi Amichia started last two years at left tackle, but projects as guard in NFL


GREEN BAY – The Packers found an offensive lineman in the sixth round of the draft on Saturday.

Green Bay used the No. 212 overall pick on South Florida's Kofi Amichia (6-4, 297), who started 26 games over the last two years at left tackle for the Bulls.

Amichia projects as a guard in the NFL, and the Packers will list him as a guard.

He earned first-team All-American Athletic Conference honors in 2016 and was a key blocker for all-conference running back Marlon Mack, who was drafted earlier Saturday by the Colts in the fourth round (No. 143 overall).
