Packers sign seventh-round picks

The signings of running back DeShawn Wynn and tight end Clark Harris mean the Packers have signed four of their 11 draft picks, a better rate than most teams in the league.

The Green Bay Packers announced the signings of their seventh-round draft picks, running back DeShawn Wynn and tight end Clark Harris, on Wednesday.

Terms were not disclosed, though both deals are believed to be for four years.

The signings mean the Packers have inked four of their 11 picks. The others are third-round pick Aaron Rouse, a safety, and fifth-round pick David Clowney, a wide receiver.

Only four teams in the NFL have signed as many of their picks: Chicago (seven), Miami (six), Philadelphia (six) and Jacksonville (four). Across the league, no first- or second-round picks have signed.

Wynn, the 228th overall selection, was the 13th running back in University of Florida history to rush for 2,000 yards. The 5-foot-10, 232-pounder led the Gators in rushing the last two seasons, including picking up 630 yards during last year's run to the national title.

Wynn is one of five running backs on the roster, a list that includes unsigned second-round pick Brandon Jackson.

Clark, the 243rd overall selection, was a four-year starter at Rutgers. The 6-foot-5, 256-pounder ranks sixth in school history with 143 receptions and fifth with 2,015 receiving yards. He caught 34 passes for 493 yards and two touchdowns as a senior. He hauled in a career-high 53 passes as a sophomore.

Clark is one of five tight ends on the roster.

The Packers have $4.907 million to get their 11 picks signed.

Meanwhile, the team released center Pete Bier, an undrafted rookie out of Army, and first-year defensive tackle Devarick Scandrett.
