Oakland native Kevin King drafted by Packers

NEW YORK (KTVU) -- Oakland native Kevin King has been picked by the Green Bay Packers during the second round of the draft.

The Washington cornerback was the first selection in the second round Friday night after being passed over during the opening round. The 6-foot-3 former safety is known for his size and aggressive on-field moves.

Green Bay ended up with the first selection of the second round after a deal with Cleveland in which the Browns were able to snag Miami tight end David Njoku.

King is a senior at Washington and graduated from Bishop O'Dowd High School in Oakland. He has garnered an honorable mention All-Pac-12 pick at cornerback over the past two season.
