And then there were eight.

Only minutes after we posted that nine draft picks remain unsigned, the Packers announced that they have signed third-round choice Montravious Adams. The defensive lineman completes the Packers’ class, as they have come to terms with their 10 picks.

The Packers selected Adams with the 93rd overall pick. He will receive a four-year contract worth $3.14 million, including $744,766 to sign.

Adams made 147 tackles, 19.5 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks in his four seasons at Auburn.

His signing leaves only eight unsigned draft picks, seven of whom were drafted in the first round.

The seven remaining unsigned first-rounders are: Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky (No. 2 overall), 49ers defensive end Solomon Thomas (No. 3 overall), Titans receiver Cory Davis (No. 5 overall), Jets safety Jamal Adams (No. 6 overall) and Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (No. 10 overall), Raiders cornerback Gareon Conley (No. 24 overall) and safety Jabrill Peppers (No. 25 overall). The Raiders’ second-rounder, Obi Melifonwu, also remains unsigned.

  1. The Packers came to terms with Adams, and now Adams has to come to the terms with the idea of spending the next four years in Green Bay.

    —————————
    You’re right. Montravious comes from Vienna, GA – population 3,823, and while Vienna is the county seat of Dooly County, the entire county only has 14,188 residents. Moving to a city 7x as big as the one you’re from would be a culture shock to anyone. I think he’ll adjust just fine, though, especially since he’s going to a storied franchise with a winning tradition and great fans, as opposed to that one on the wrong side of the Mississippi.

  3. “The Packers came to terms with Adams, and now Adams has to come to the terms with the idea of spending the next four years in Green Bay.”

    Yet another failed attempt at humor from The Phantom Super Bowl Trophy.

  4. They are paying him 3.14 million dollars over the next 4 years with a sign-on of $744,766.

    All this for a guy who has never set foot on an NFL football field.

    The NFL is the biggest example of gluttony I can think of.

  5. This Packer team has a lot more question marks than their rivals in the division. If they pan out, they’ll be hard to stop. If they don’t, heads need to roll once and for all.

  6. I hope he is able to gobble-up double-teams and is difficult to move in run blocking and earns a nickname that is some derivative of Mountain like “Mont Adams.”
