For the Packers, the first four picks of the 2017 NFL Draft went to defensive players. So far, five practices into training camp and only one is left standing.

Montravius Adams and Vince Biegel were already on the list of injured players, then, their top overall pick and most promising player, Kevin King, joined in with a shoulder injury.

Head coach Mike McCarthy and General Manager Ted Thompson have seen the Packers secondary struggle year after year and are hoping King could be a key part of their improving defense.

King has spent most of training camp and other practices working with the number 1 defense. This really shows that McCarthy and Dom Capers want to get him ready for Week 1 as a starter. His injury did not look too serious though as he attended practice the next day, but did not participate. No shoulder wraps or slings were spotted on King.

Until King gets back out there, Quinten Rollins, Davon House and Damarious Randall are the cornerbacks rotating in with the No. 1 defense.

On the same day King got hurt, Montravius Adams underwent successful foot surgery with his time for return set at 6 weeks.

Vince Biegel on the other hand, has been on the physically unable to perform list since May after he also underwent foot surgery. He cannot participate in any practice until he is fully activated but has at least shown some movement in jog-through periods.

The only player still standing is their second round pick, Josh Jones, who has been a huge training camp standout so far.
