The Packers add another outstanding Bruin defensive lineman to their roster.

With the 27th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, The Green Bay Packers select Kenny Clark, Defensive Tackle, U.C.L.A.

Move over, Datone! The Packers need to make room for another outstanding defensive lineman from Westwood, and that is bad news for the running backs and quarterbacks in the NFC North. In a draft class that was uber-deep with defensive linemen, Clark was seen as having a shot at being selected in the first round. Good choice, Pack. Clark had a fantastic junior season that saw a big improvement from an already great sophomore year. At just 21, Clark will only continue to grow and get better.

There might be a certain backup QB there who told the coaches about playing against this guy, too.

Check out our pre-draft preview of Kenny Clark.

Who wants cheese?!

Congratulations, Kenny!

GO BRUINS!
