With #27 pick, Packers select UCLA's Kenny Clark in first round of NFL Draft

CHICAGO -- With the #27 pick in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers selected UCLA's Kenny Clark, a defensive tackle.

Clark played three years at UCLA, starting all 13 games in 2015 and making 29 consecutive starts overall. A team captain, Clark had 75 tackles and six sacks for the Bruins last season.

The first three hours of the draft shook out well for Green Bay, with plenty of front seven options still available late in the first round.

There is a huge void in the middle of the defense with tackle B.J. Raji choosing to take a year off. The 6-foot-4, 310-pound Clark will help plug that hole.
