The Green Bay Packers have signed rookie defensive tackle Justin Harrell, the team's first-round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the signing Friday.
Harrell, a 6-foot-4, 310-pound player from Tennessee, was a four-year letterman and defensive captain in 2006. He became the last Tennessee player to wear Reggie White's No. 92.
In 35 career games, including 25 starts, Harrell tallied 82 tackles, four sacks and two interceptions. He earned second-team All-Southeastern Conference honors in 2005 before injuries limited his senior season to three games.
Harrell is the final of 11 draft picks to sign with the Packers. All rookies will take the field Saturday when the team opens training camp at 2 p.m.
