GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) – North Dakota State’s Christian Watson will try to become the latest wide receiver to find success with the Green Bay Packers.

Green Bay opened the day with two second round picks at No. 53 and No. 59 overall. The Packers traded both of those picks to the Minnesota Vikings for the right to take Watson at No. 34.

The Packers also selected UCLA offensive lineman Sean Rhyan in the third round with the 92nd pick.
