Mike McCarthy says Ty Montgomery is the Packers starting running but the Packers coach finally has the competition he wants in the room.

After his 13th draft, Packers GM Ted Thompson, 64, wouldn't say how many more drafts he has left in him. "I don't know," he said. "How do I look?"

Here's the Packers' full 2017 draft class: Second round: Kevin King, CB; Josh Jones, S Third round: Montravius Adams, DT Fourth round: Vince Biegel, OLB; Jamaal Williams, RB Fifth round: DeAngelo Yancey, WR; Aaron Jones, RB Sixth round: Kofi Amichia, G Seventh round: Devante Mays, RB; Malachi Dupre, WR

ESPN Stats and Information  

Malachi Dupre dealt with inconsistency at quarterback at LSU, but he still managed 14 touchdowns in three seasons. As a freshman, he averaged 22.7 yards per catch and scored five times on just 14 receptions.

Why draft three running backs? "The more the merrier," Packers GM Ted Thompson said. "It's an awfully tough position to play."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

The Packers final pick (No. 247 overall) is LSU receiver Malachi Dupre. After starting the draft with four straight defensive selections, they ended it with six straight offensive players. Dupre is the second receiver after Purdue's DeAngelo Yancey in the fifth round.

Dupre a steal in Round 7

While Malachi Dupre has just average speed and quickness, he is a smooth athlete for his size with reliable hands and the strength/toughness to win in contested situations. He has a chance to develop into a quality No. 3 receiver.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Devante Mays was limited to just five games in 2016, but he posted 966 rushing yards and nine scores in 13 games in 2015.

Devante Mays on being the third running back the Packers picked today: "I don't really look at it. I just look at it as an opportunity to compete with those guys. I don't really care if there was one or five, I'm going to always go out there and work hard and try to be No. 1. I don't really care how many there are on the depth chart at running back."

This is the first time the Packers have taken three running backs in the same draft since 1974. The Seattle Seahawks picked three last year one in third round (C.J. Prosise),, one in the fifth (Alex Collins) and one in the seventh (Zac Brooks):

Make that three running backs: The Packers picked Utah State's Devante Mays in the seventh round (No. 238 overall) to go along with running backs Jamaal Williams (fourth round) and Aaron Jones (fifth round).

Kofi Amichia made 26 consecutive starts, all at left tackle, to close his college career. He earned first-team All-AAC honors as a senior in 2016.

It wouldn't be a Ted Thompson draft without an offensive lineman. The Packers took their first one in the sixth round: Kofi Amichia, a tackle from South Florida, at No. 212 overall. At 6-foot-4, 291 pounds, he could be a candidate to play guard even though he played left tackle in college.

The Packers' two new running backs Jamaal Williams (BYU) and Aaron Jones (UTEP) know each other well. They share the same agents, Leigh Steinberg and Chris Cabbot, and hung out during the pre-draft process. Said the 5-foot-9 Jones: "He's bigger than me of course, but I'm faster. [We're a good] one-two punch or a three-headed monster or a four-headed monster with the backs they already have there.

ESPN Stats and Information  

After missing most of 2015 with a torn ligament in his ankle, Aaron Jones racked up 1,773 yards and 17 touchdowns in his final year at UTEP. He ranked third or better among running backs in the vertical jump, broad jump, 3-cone drill, short shuttle and long shuttle at the combine.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

It's another running back for the Packers: UTEP's Aaron Jones in the fifth round (No. 182 overall). This follows running back Jamaal Williams, who was the Packers' fourth-round pick (No. 134 overall). The Packers hope one of them will serve as a complement to Ty Montgomery.

ESPN Stats and Information  

DeAngelo Yancey never caught 50 passes in a season at Purdue, but he made plenty of big plays. He averaged 19.4 yards per catch and scored 10 touchdowns as a senior.

It's a second straight offensive player for the Packers: Purdue WR DeAngelo Yancey in the fifth round (No. 175 overall). This comes after they took running back Jamaal Williams in the fourth round. Before that, the Packers had taken four straight defensive players. Yancey (6-2, 220), He was not invited to the combine but made a predraft visit to the Packers.

The Packers traded their fifth-round pick (No. 172) to the Denver Broncos and moved back to No. 175. They also picked up a seventh-round pick (No. 238).

Jamaal Williams said he violated BYU's honor code because "I had a girl in my room." When asked how NFL teams reacted to that, he said: "Most of them laughed."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Here's what the Packers think of BYU running back Jamaal Williams, their fourth-round pick: "He's an aggressive downhill runner, he's tough, he's built to last," director of college scouting Jon-Eric Sullivan said. "I think he's going to complement the guys we have here. We're excited about Ty [Montgomery]."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Finally, a running back. The Packers picked BYU's Jamaal Williams with their second fourth-round pick (No. 134). Williams (6-0, 212) is BYU's all-time leading rusher with 3,901 yards. Williams will team with Ty Montgomery and compete with Christine Michael and Don Jackson in the Packers' backfield.
