With the 28th pick in the sixth round of #MockFour, the Packers selected Arkansas State safety Kelcie McCray.
While several quarterback options were discussed, Brian Carriveau and I both agreed that taking McCray fit both in value and need at the end of the sixth round.
The Packers are likely to look at a safety or two in this draft, as the undetermined future of Nick Collins' NFL career continues to loom over a position that already lacked depth. While not an immediate starter, McCray does give the Packers more bodies at safety.
McCray (6-1, 202 lbs.) was a first-team All-Sun Belt selection in 2011 after intercepting four passes for the Red Wolves. He started 36 games at Arkansas State.
McCray received an invite to the NFL combine, running a 4.54-second 40-yard dash, 4.29-second 20-yard shuttle and a 7.00-second three-cone drill in Indianapolis. At his pro day in late March, McCray registered a 33.5" vertical leap and 12 reps at 225 pounds.
He was a former teammate of current Packers safety M.D. Jennings at Arkansas State.
