WR Davante Adams to Pack in 2nd round

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The Packers took receiver Davante Adams in the second round of the NFL draft Friday night, supplying quarterback Aaron Rodgers with another target in a potent passing game.

Adams had 131 catches for 1,718 yards and 24 touchdowns last year in Fresno State's high-octane offense run by quarterback Derek Carr, himself selected in the second round by the Raiders.

Adams will join a Packers receiving corps led by Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. Jarrett Boykin also emerged last year as a target after Cobb got hurt.

Tight end may have been a more pressing need, but the top options were gone by the time the Packers were up with the 53rd overall pick.

Washington's Austin Seferian-Jenkins went early in the second round to the Buccaneers. Texas Tech's Jace Amaro went to the Jets and the Cardinals took Troy Niklas a pick before the Packers went.

Green Bay still had two more third-round picks on Day 2 of the draft. The health of free agent tight end Jermichael Finley, who suffered a season-ending spinal cord injury last season, remains in question, and the Packers did re-sign Andrew Quarless at tight end.

The 6-foot Adams should be a nice consolation prize for Green Bay. Adams averaged 116 yards receiving per game, eighth-best in NCAA history. The third-year sophomore doesn't turn 22 until December.

''You love how he's a competitor,'' Packers receivers coach Edgar Bennett said. ''Catching ability, good hands, makes the tough catch and goes up and catches the football. Extremely productive.''
