Follow live coverage of today's NFL Draft below as the Packers enter the day with eight picks - one each in the fourth and sixth rounds, three each in the fifth and seventh rounds.

The Packers' picks
- 4th round, No. 133: J'Mon Moore, WR, MIssouri

"A good value pick at this point...he moves. He ran a 4.58 and 4.60 40 yard dashes, but he runs faster than that...with that size, a really good weapon for Aaron Rodgers." - Todd McShay, ESPN

- 5th round, No. 138: Cole Madison, T, Washington St.

"Madison projects best as an NFL guard, partly because his arms are only — yes, “only” — 32 1/4 inches. At 6-5, 308 pounds, he’s not quite as big and girthy as the NFL likes its tackles to be." - Stefanie Loh, Seattle Times

- 5th round, No. 172: J.K. Scott, P, Alabama

"Four-year punter who is able to work for distance, hang time or placement whenever he needs. He's been a consistent performer who operates well under pressure and possesses soft hands to handle poor snaps. He has the talent and play traits to become a long-time NFL starter." - Lance Zierlein, NFL.com

- 5th round, No. 174: Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR, South Florida

"He's probably not ready to help a team just yet, but his issues may be correctable so he's worth a Day 3 selection as a stash-and-coach prospect." - Lance Zierlein, NFL.com

- 6th round, No. 207: Equanimeous St. Brown, WR, Notre Dame.

"Still just scratching the surface of his potential, St. Brown’s upside is through the roof, and he’ll only get better with some added bulk." - Luke Eaterling, USA TODAY Draftwire

- 7th round, No. 232: James Looney, DE, California

"He lacks the size and strength to play inside and it appears as though adding functional weight on his frame is a non-starter. Looney will likely need to improve his lean muscle mass and try to transition into a role as a base 4-3 end who might be able to reduce inside as a situational pass rusher in sub-packages." - Lance Zierlein, NFL.com

- 7th round, No. 239: Hunter Bradley, LS, Mississippi State

"Hunter Bradley played in the East-West Shrine game. So they liked him better than Tanner Carew, the long-snapper who went to the Senior Bowl" - Tom Silverstein, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

- 7th round: No. 248: Kendall Donnerson, DE/LB, Southeast Missouri State

"Donnerson is a project that teams might not be willing to draft, but will be more than happy to stash on the practice squad as a PFA while they try and improve his technique and skill, hoping to unlock his athletic gifts. At this point, Donnerson is no more than a lottery scratch-off with the potential for a tremendous pay-off, but with the odds against it." - Lance Zuerlein, NFL.com

The first Badgers player was taken by the Oakland Raiders with the 10th selection in the 4th round: CB Nick Nelson. Ian Rapoport of NFL.com said that he had a meniscus trim during recent knee surgery, and should be OK for training camp.

The second was Badgers tight end Troy Fumagalli with the 19th pick in the 5th round. No. 3: Safety Natrell Jamerson, to New Orleans with the round's 28th pick.

The fourth is inside linebacker Jack Cichy going to Tampa Bay with the 28th pick in the 6th round. Badgers edge rusher Leon Jacobs became the 5th, going to Jacksonville with the 12th pick of the seventh round.
