Rock Reports: 3 things about each draft pick

Analyst Larry McCarren put together a collection of film breakdowns on the Packers' 2016 draft class


First round: DT Kenny Clark (No. 27 overall)

Of Clark's seven career sacks at UCLA, six came this past season, when he was elected team captain for the Bruins as a junior. *(Video)*

Second round: T Jason Spriggs (No. 48 overall)

The Packers traded up nine spots in the second round to select Spriggs, who started at left tackle all four seasons at Indiana, a total of 47 games. In 2015, he was a semifinalist for the Outland Trophy. *(Video)*

Third round: LB Kyler Fackrell (No. 88 overall)

In 2015, the Utah State pass rusher returned from a torn ACL to record 15 tackles for loss, including four sacks, plus five fumble recoveries in earning all-conference honors for a third time. *(Video)*

Fourth round: LB Blake Martinez (No. 131 overall)

The tackling machine from Stanford led the entire Pac-12 Conference in tackles last season with 141, and the Packers made him the first of two compensatory choices at the end of the fourth round. *(Video)*

Fourth round: DE Dean Lowry (No. 137 overall)

A blue-collar defensive lineman from Northwestern, Lowry recorded 12 1/2 sacks in his college career, adding 15 to 20 pounds to his 6-6 frame each year to get up in the 290 range. *(Video)*

Fifth round: WR Trevor Davis (No. 163 overall)

The speedy pass catcher once returned two kickoffs for touchdowns in the same game for Cal, where he finished his college career after transferring from Hawaii. *(Video)*

Sixth round: T Kyle Murphy (No. 200 overall)

Before he became the Packers' third draft pick from Stanford in the past two years, Murphy started 27 games at right and left tackle over his final two seasons for the Cardinal. *(Video)*
