, 21 tackles for loss and 12 sacks, as well as seven passes defensed, one forced fumble and three fumble recoveries.Keke started his collegiate career at defensive tackle. But he showed versatility as a senior, dropping 20 pounds in the offseason and spent time at defensive end in 2018. As a senior last season, Keke logged 51 tackles and set career bests with 11 TFL and seven sacks.Keke is the Packers’ first pick on the defensive side of the ball since the first round, when the Packers selected linebacker Rashan Gary (12th overall) and safety Darnell Savage (No. 21).Green Bay currently holds three picks the rest of the draft: two sixth-rounders (No. 185 Bart Starr Jersey

Some other teams will get to make mistakes by the lake in a few years, but it seems unlikely that the city of Green Bay will get the 2022 event." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteAcme Packing Companya Green Bay Packers communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsPackersOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareShareNFL announces Cleveland and Kansas City to host 2021 and 2023 NFL DraftsKen Blaze-USA TODAY SportsThe odds of Green Bay hosting the 2022 NFL Draft seemed to dwindle on Wednesday afternoon, as the NFL has announced the hosts for the events in 2021 and 2023. Both of those events are headed to smaller-sized NFL markets, as Cleveland will host the 2021 Draft before Kansas City gets the event two years later.These events come on the heels of a highly successful 2019 NFL Draft, held in a smaller market in Nashville. With the 2018 Draft taking place in Arlington, Texas and Las Vegas slated to host in 2020 Ray Nitschke Color Rush Jersey
, this appears to set up an alternating schedule of big markets and small markets.With that in mind, it appears unlikely that the Green Bay Packers will be hosting the 2022 NFL Draft. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport suggested the same, saying that the expectation is that the league will indeed look for a bigger market for that year. The Packers and the city of Green Bay could still decide to put in a bid for 2022, however, and the Green Bay Press-Gazette discussed the team and the city’s possible thought processes on Tuesday.These recently-announced host cities will be the sixth and seventh new markets to host the event since the NFL moved it away from New York City after the 2014 NFL Draft. Chicago hosted two straight drafts in 2015 and 2016 before the Draft went to Philadelphia, Dallas https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Reggie-White-Jersey
, and Nashville in the last three years.
