GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers have taken Iowa defensive tackle Mike Daniels with the first of two compensatory picks near the end of the fourth round of the NFL draft on Saturday.
The 6-foot, 291-pound Daniels had 15.5 sacks and 27 tackles for losses in four seasons with the Hawkeyes.
With the pick, the Packers have taken defensive players with their first four picks in the draft. Last year, the Packers took offensive players with five of their first six selections.
The Packers took USC outside linebacker Nick Perry in the first round, then traded up for a pair of second-round picks, Michigan State defensive lineman Jerel Worthy and Vanderbilt cornerback Casey Hayward.
