GREEN BAY – For the second year in a row, the Packers drafted an offensive skill position player from Notre Dame in the sixth round.
One year after taking wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown, Green Bay chose Fighting Irish running back Dexter Williams on Saturday with the 194th overall pick.
Williams (5-11, 212) rushed for 995 yards and nine touchdowns in just nine games last year, by far his most productive college season. He was suspended for the first month of the season. On 158 carries, he averaged 6.3 yards per rush after posting a whopping 9.2 average the year before in a part-time role (39 carries, 360 yards).
His 97-yard rushing touchdown against Virginia Tech last season was the second-longest in Notre Dame history.
