Green Bay also brought back veteran cornerback Davon House in the offseason as a free agent after he spent the last two years in Jacksonville. King and House will join third-year holdovers Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins and LaDarius Gunter at cornerback.
"We went in with the idea of trying to find more defenders, especially versatile guys like Josh who could switch from safety to corner," Thompson said. "It's nice to add people to that equation."
Green Bay traded the 29th overall pick in the first round to Cleveland for the 33rd overall pick to take King,NFL Jerseys Cheap Authentic, as well as first pick of the fourth round on Saturday, the 108th overall. General manager Ted Thompson had said that he was fielding calls about his first pick Friday,Cheap NFL Jerseys Shop, but defensive coordinator Dom Capers was spotted in the Packers draft room at Lambeau Field speaking with Thompson and the pick was announced shortly after.
The Packers had made shoring up the secondary their first priority in the draft and they took Washington cornerback Kevin King with the first selection of the second round to fill a big need. The 6-foot-3 King adds size and speed to a secondary that was burned in the passing game and maligned by injuries.
Jones, who has played both safety positions in college, left North Carolina State after his junior season. He played in 38 career games, making 32 starts, with 229 tackles and eight interceptions.
Those three players took on more responsibility last year after veteran cornerback Sam Shields went down with a concussion in the season opener. He never returned and was released this offseason,Cheap NFL Football Jerseys. Randall and Rollins were also bothered by injuries.
Green Bay also took Josh Jones, a 6-foot-2 safety out of North Carolina State before beefing things up with Adams three months after getting blown out by the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC title game.
"I dropped to my knees and thanked the Lord,Alexis Sanchez Chile Jersey," Jones said about his reaction when he was drafted.
For now, Adams can focus on being his new role as a father.
"Man, there (are) really no words I can say," Adams said. "I'm just thankful for the blessings."
First he became a father after his girlfriend gave birth to their first child, son Montravius Adams,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, Jr., at about 2:30 p.m. Friday. About eight hours later, life changed again for the 6-foot-4, 300-pound Adams as the Auburn defensive lineman was drafted in the third round by the Green Bay Packers.
"One of our goals this year was to try to get faster," director of football operations Eliot Wolf said. "I think we got the tallest corner in the draft and one that runs really fast."
Randall was a first-round draft pick in 2015, while Rollins was taken in the second round that season. Gunter joined the Packers that year as an undrafted free agent.
Jones could be a possible replacement for Micah Hyde, who played both cornerback and safety and saw a lot of time in passing situations. Hyde departed as a free agent for Buffalo this offseason.
Adams was selected with the 93rd overall pick. He was a three-year starter who may be able to play different positions along the line. He got the call from the Packers at a hospital in Georgia, and he expects to be there until Sunday.
King had a 40-yard dash time of 4.43 seconds, according to NFL.com, while Jones was timed at 4.41 seconds.
"I just think that's the way the game's going. You just don't want to get outflanked. You've got to have guys who can run and chase," player personnel director Brian Gutekunst said about drafting fast players. "I don't think that ever changes, I think we've always wanted to get faster."

"We're disappointed right now in the way we played tonight," said Manning, who completed 38 passes for 356 yards and one TD. "We know we can bounce back next week and still get a win and get in the playoffs."
Manning targeted Beckham 20 times; the next favored receiver was Victor Cruz, who caught eight of the 13 balls thrown his way. New York's only touchdown was a 13-yard pass over the middle to Sterling Shepard, who had seven catches on 11 targets.
If the Falcons (9-5) lose at Carolina, New York is in. If the Packers (8-6) lose to Minnesota, New York is in.
"I want to be wherever the ball is," Jenkins said. "If I play deep too long a lot of times, I get bored."
Should Tampa Bay fall at New Orleans, the Giants advance. And if Detroit (9-5) is beaten by Dallas, the Giants are playoff-bound.
"My name was called and I made the most of it," said Brooks,http://www.soccerpro.us.com/AC-Milan-FC/, who had not played a defensive snap this season before getting in for two plays against the Giants.
WAITING GAME: The Giants couldn't do the deed themselves Thursday night and now must wait for the weekend's action. They have plenty of opportunity to qualify for the postseason while opening holiday gifts.
If not, they get in with a win at Washington next week.
"I think anytime you get the ball in his hands," Giants coach Ben McAdoo said, "you have a chance to go for a touchdown."
After Darren Sproles gave the Eagles (6-9) a 7-0 lead on a 25-yard TD run, Jenkins picked off Manning and ran it back 34 yards for a 14-0 lead. Jenkins got another interception in the second half, the second time he's had two picks in a game in his eight-year career.
BECKHAM'S NUMBERS: Earlier this season, when the Giants beat the Eagles 28-23, Odell Beckham Jr. had only four receptions for 46 yards, though he scored twice. At the Linc, he made 11 catches for 150 yards, but didn't find the end zone.
Here's some things we learned in Philadelphia's win over the Giants:
But all those throws weren't enough.
Then the defense delivered a stop on fourth down before Terrence Brooks clinched the win with an interception at the Eagles 5.

With today's spread offenses in college, there's a dearth of game-ready left tackles. Even the top prospects,Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping, Utah's Garret Bolles and Wisconsin's Ryan Ramczyk, only have a year's experience starting.
"He's worked hard for that opportunity. And I'm happy for him. He did a tremendous job for us," Elway said. "But ... what we've done is spread some of the responsibility that Adam had with where we are now and then once we get through the draft and get into May we'll make some changes there."
SLIP-SLIDING: The Broncos have twice benefited from players slipping down the draft board for off-the-field concerns: Bradley Roby in 2014 and Shane Ray in 2015.
"No. The concern is if he can play football. That's our concern," Elway said. "And that, he can do."
"There could possibly be one," Elway said when asked if he felt there was a Day 1 starter at left tackle in this draft. "It depends. If that's where we go, he's going to come in and compete for a job."
Elway doesn't seem to be sweating it, though.
The Broncos had Mixon in for a visit and got to ask him about the incident themselves.
MIXON? Elway declined to say whether he'd consider drafting Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon, who punched a female student in 2014 after she'd shoved him.
With the NFL draft 100 hours away, Elway was in a jovial mood Monday.
MCCAFFREY CONCERNS: Elway said he's not among those who fear selecting McCaffrey would create a circus in his hometown.
All these pressing necessities linger even as the Broncos ponder for a second straight offseason just who will be their starting quarterback .
With the best questions,Marlon Humphrey Jersey?
LEFT OUT: The Broncos' most glaring need is at left tackle, but options there include Ty Sambrailo, Menelik Watson, Donald Stephenson or Michael Schofield if Elway doesn't get his guy in the draft.
What's your biggest need?
The Broncos' offense,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, on the other hand, was the primary culprit in Denver missing the playoffs one year later.
On more serious notes, Elway addressed many questions heading into this weekend's draft, where the Broncos own 10 selections:
PETERS GONE: Elway said he plans to replace former college scouting director Adam Peters next month. New 49ers GM John Lynch hired Peters two months ago to serve as his vice president of player personnel.
Asked if he was concerned about Mixon's past, Elway said, "We're still evaluating that."
Elway also was asked why he brought in local star Christian McCaffrey for one of the Broncos' 30 official visits with prospects even though they're familiar with the son of former Broncos wide receiver Ed McCaffrey.
Denver needs upgrades at O-line and tight end and better depth at wide receiver and running back.
When a guy starts to slip, "it starts opening discussions," Elway said. "And they're falling for a reason. So, usually if they fall you've got to realize, if he falls to us, No. 1, is it somebody we want? And No. 2, why is he falling? And if it's something that we can put up with, then we'll discuss that."
CROSSROADS: Elway declined to call this draft any more important than his previous six drafts even though the Broncos are coming off their first non-playoff season under his leadership.
In many respects, Denver's defense last year was even better than the one that carried Peyton Manning across the finish line of his stellar career that ended with a Super Bowl 50 ring.
Great, so, who you taking at No. 20?
"No, they've all been important ... and this one's just as important,Authentic China Jerseys," Elway said. "I think that 9-7 is a disappointing year for us,Cheap NFL Jerseys, especially coming off of the Super Bowl. But we feel like we've got a lot of things in place that can help us be a very good football team. The division's gotten a lot tougher ... so that's part of the process in realizing that we've got to get better."
Asked what Champ Bailey had done to deserve enshrinement in the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame on Thursday night, Elway joked, "Absolutely nothing."
He stepped to the podium declaring this was "the most productive news conference of the year."
"I'm not going to tell you who's on the board," Elway said.

Mularkey doesn't think adjusting to game speed in the NFL will be an issue for Davis. The Titans also have Rishard Matthews, who tied for the team lead with 65 catches last year for a team-best 945 yards and nine touchdowns.
"Corey is a guy that's going to have to get his feet wet,Stitched Cheap Jerseys," Mularkey said. "And the sooner he can, the better he'll be."
"He's a great player, creates a lot of separation with his route-running," Mariota said. "He makes it easy for us to know where we're expecting him to come out of his routes. I think for us we're going to expect a lot out of him, and I hope he's up to the challenge."
Notes: The Titans announced six captains Monday with Mariota, Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker,Cheap NFL Jerseys China Free Shipping, Pro Bowl linebacker Brian Orakpo, Pro Bowl defensive lineman Jurrell Casey and linebacker Wesley Woodyard. The sixth is former linebacker and special teams ace Tim Shaw, who is battling ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease .

NOTES: Starting S Morgan Burnett (back) remained sidelined. Micah Hyde started the first two preseason games with Burnett out. Brett Hundley, the Packers' top backup quarterback, didn't practice Monday after he aggravated an ankle injury in Thursday's game. Backup G Josh Walker (knee) also was out. Second-year LB Jake Ryan returned to practice after being sidelined since early August with a hamstring injury. ... The Packers released first-year G Matt Rotheram and undrafted rookie long snapper Jesse Schmitt. Rotheram (biceps) and Schmitt (broken hand) suffered injuries earlier in the preseason.
"Yeah, obviously, the fans are excited,Wholesale Authentic NFL Jerseys," Nelson said. "I'm excited to be back out there practicing and getting ready for Week 1."
He acknowledged with a laugh that his cameo work on the field Monday hardly constituted a practice. But that was good enough for those seated in the nearby bleachers as they cheered every catch by Nelson, who participated in warmups with the team before Green Bay's preseason game Thursday.
"We're progressing," said Nelson, then adding, "It's a fluid situation of how everything reacts and how we feel."
While Nelson being on the field was big news, the Packers solidified another significant development with their offense. Coach Mike McCarthy announced before practice that JC Tretter earned the starting spot at center over incumbent Corey Linsley, who is on the PUP list because of a hamstring injury.
"It'll be a great opportunity,College Jerseys, but I don't think the mindset really changes much," said Tretter,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, a fourth-year pro. "It's just continue to grind away and continue to do what you can to get better every day."
The Packers activated Nelson, entering his ninth year, from the physically unable to perform list last week after he had been out with an injury to his other knee.
"I felt better today, honestly, than what I thought I was going to be, wind-wise, conditioning-wise, of running those routes and being full padded and everything," Nelson said. "So I thought that was a good sign."
After keeping his nose in the playbook and paying close attention to the tendencies of defensive backs as he watched practice while he was sidelined, Nelson doesn't feel the missed time on the field will be detrimental.
"JC Tretter has had an excellent camp," said McCarthy, who alluded to Linsley's prolonged unavailability this summer as a factor in the decision.
Tretter,Wholesale China Jerseys, who has been working with the first-string offensive line since the first day of training camp, took the news in stride after he was informed by the coaches Monday morning.
"Obviously, there's prep that goes into the season with the training camp," Nelson said, "but the important stuff is the games, when it really matters."
Nelson, who missed all of last season with a knee injury, was limited to individual drills Monday and primarily ran routes on air and caught passes from Aaron Rodgers and rookie backups Joe Callahan and Marquise Williams. His goal is simple in his long-awaited comeback: Be ready to play this year's season opener on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sept. 11.

PLAYMAKER HEAVEN: The Cardinals are loaded with people who can make the big plays Arians' offense features. Larry Fitzgerald is back for his 13th NFL season. Fitzgerald, who just turned 33, caught 109 passes last year for 1,215 yards, breaking the franchise record he set a decade earlier. John Brown topped 1,000 yards receiving, too, and after being sidelined with a concussion most of the preseason, he is expected to be ready for the opener. Michael Floyd returns in a contract year, another big receiver adept at coming down with those 50-50 balls. Jaron Brown, the forgotten player in this talented group, may have had the best training camp of any Cardinal. And J.J. Nelson adds even more speed.
Jones had a career-high 12 1-2 sacks for the Patriots last season, earning his first appearance in the Pro Bowl. With second-year pro Marcus Golden, who came on strong through last season, at the other linebacker spot, with Alex Okafor as a backup, the Cardinals are confident they can finally mount a pass rush off the edge.
Arizona added some veteran depth at the position by acquiring Marcus Cooper from Kanas City last week.
BADGER'S BACK: Do-everything defensive back Mathieu, with a big new contract, has returned from his second knee surgery in three seasons. He didn't play in any preseason games and will play with a brace on his knee, albeit a much smaller one than he had to wear two years ago.

The Raiders began their three-day mandatory minicamp Tuesday, a day after the Warriors won the NBA title at home by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
Since joining the Raiders in 2014, Carr has watched the Warriors win two championships, the San Francisco Giants win one and the San Jose Sharks lose in the Stanley Cup Final a year ago.
Carr has not gotten the chance to play in the postseason, The Raiders won just 10 games combined his first two seasons and then he missed the playoff game a year ago with a broken leg.
"Playing at home is something you have to earn,Wholesale Jerseys," Del Rio said. "Our fans here are the best. That atmosphere last night was electric. Great to be a part of it. We've had big regular-season games here, but obviously it all gets ramped up when it's a playoff game. We'd love to earn those. That's what it's all about."

If Gase leaves, Cutler would work with his sixth coordinator since he was traded from Denver to Chicago in 2009.
Cutler posted the highest rating of his career (92.3) and cut his interceptions from 18 last year to 11 in 15 games. He did that even though Jeffery, White, Eddie Royal, Marquess Wilson and tight end Martellus Bennett all missed time if not the entire season.
"Let me make this clear, our systems are our systems," he said. "They're not any individual's systems, they are our systems. Our systems aren't changing: offense, defense or special teams."
Then again, Forte brings intangibles that would be missed.
"You see how tattered and beat up and stuff (it is)," Forte said. "It's not like me. I'm still good."
Despite the losing record, the Bears believe they took a big step in their first year under general manager Ryan Pace and coach John Fox. They believe they laid the foundation for winning following a five-win meltdown in 2014.
He was joking, of course. Fox, however, was serious when the possibility of Cutler regressing under a new coordinator was broached.
"Think we can be really good, especially with the receivers we've got coming back, and just the chemistry we have with each other," White said.
White missed the season because of a stress fracture in his left shin after being drafted out of West Virginia with the seventh pick. Jeffery was limited to nine games because of injuries and could be a candidate for the franchise player tag.
"It comes down to adding playmakers all over the field on defense," Pace said.
PICKING PIECES: The Bears figure to be active in free agency. But Pace realizes their success largely hinges on the draft,Cheap MLB Jerseys 2018, a major sticking point for Chicago in recent years.
TAKE IT AWAY: The Bears used to take pride in their ability to force turnovers when Lovie Smith was the coach. They had only 17 takeaways, fifth fewest in the league, this season.
Not since the Bears drafted him in 2008, though, has his future been so in doubt. It's one of the big issues the organization needs to address after a last-place finish in the NFC North at 6-10.
"The atmosphere and the culture in the building just feels really good right now," Pace said.
DYNAMIC DUO: Assuming Jeffery stays, the Bears believe they could have a strong one-two receiver combination with a healthy Kevin White.
They thought they might have it this season. But the two never played together.
The two-time Pro Bowl running back was leaving it behind as a memento and a reminder of the blood, sweat and tears he shed the past eight years for the Chicago Bears.
Yet they still have a big job ahead of them, with some glaring holes and a roster that figures to have a decidedly different look. About one-third of the players have expiring contracts, with Forte and No. 1 receiver Alshon Jeffery topping the list.
The franchise's second all-time leading rusher behind Walter Payton,NFL Jerseys Cheap Authentic, he ran for 898 yards and four touchdowns, and caught 44 passes for 389 yards and three more scores in 13 games. But he is also 30 and shared time with Jeremy Langford and Ka'Deem Carey.
FORTE'S FUTURE: Forte has said he wants to stay with the team, but he isn't holding out hope.
CUTLER CONNECTION: With or without Gase, Pace said the Bears have "extreme confidence" in quarterback Jay Cutler and plan to build the offense around him.
"It's a huge part of it," Pace said. "It really is,Wholesale Jerseys, and especially what we're trying to emphasize, the type of players that we want here."
Here are some things to know as the Bears try to establish themselves as contenders after missing the playoffs for the eighth time in nine years:
"I was going to ask you guys today if you would write some bad articles on him," Cutler said after Sunday's game. "Maybe we can cool him off some."
That's a big change from a year ago,Cheap Authentic Jerseys, when Pace and Fox waited until March to announce that he would be the starter.

The Panthers promptly traded for Jared Allen,Wholesale China Jerseys, the NFL's active career leader in sacks. Allen has 12 tackles and two sacks in six games and has provided some needed veteran stability at defensive end.
He battled off and on with hamstring problems in the preseason before re-injuring it more severely in the third game of the season against New Orleans, prompting the team to shut him down.
Johnson, who had 52 ? sacks over the past five seasons, has missed the last eight weeks on short-term injured reserve with a hamstring injury.
"I think he will add to what we want to do (on defense) and how we want to do it," Rivera said. "Our guys have played very well and getting him back in the fold should mean some very good things for us. As we go forward into the stretch run we want our best players available."
Others have stepped up too with Johnson out,Wholesale NBA Jerseys China.
The question now for Rivera is which two defensive ends to start among a threesome that includes Johnson, Allen and the young, but improving Ealy. He said the team hasn't decided yet, but added that is a good problem to have.
Carolina had five sacks against Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, marking the third time in the last five games they've had at least five sacks in a game.
Second-year defensive end Kony Ealy, who has been starting opposite Johnson, has a sack in each of the last four games including two forced fumbles. Defensive tackle Kawann Short leads the team with six sacks, five of them coming in October when he was named NFC Defensive Player of the Month. And pass rushing specialist Mario Addison has 4 ? sacks for the league's fourth-ranked defense.
Johnson has spent all nine seasons with the Panthers.
