GREEN BAY - The Packers capped off the NFL draft today by adding more defense, some speed and making a Wisconsinite's dream come true.
Today started out with the Packers selecting Arizona State linebacker Carl Bradford in fourth round.
Bradford can play every linebacker position and has played defensive end. At ASU he had 152 tackles, 21.5 sacks, and two interceptions.
The Pack had two picks in the fifth round. First was Corey Linsley a center from Ohio State.
Linsley will compete with JC Tretter and Garth Gerhart for the center job.
Next in the fifth was a very popular pick. Badger wide receiver Jared Abbrederis is staying in Wisconsin. He's originally from Wautoma and started his career as a walk on at Wisconsin. Plus he's rooted for the Packers his whole life.
Abbrederis scored 23 TDs in his Badger career.
He could also be a return option for the Packers.
In the 6th round Baylor cornerback Demetri Goodson was chosen by Green Bay.
And with their final pick, the Packers took another wide receiver, Jeff Janis of Saginaw Valley State.
CAMBRIA - Didion Milling Company in Cambria received 19 safety citations for its explosion in May. The fatal plant explosion killed five workers and injured 12 others. Didion plans on challenging some of the citations. The Occupational Safety and Heath Administration issued the citations for safety violations and proposed a $1.8 million dollar fine. The company's appeal could take up to a year.
MANITOWISH WATERS - After Terry Theisen got her middle school math class started with some computer coding, she needed to admit something about her level of programming expertise.
"None, absolutely none," Theisen said with a smile.
The North Lakeland School teacher did some basic coding when she was young, telling her students she used actual punch cards. Friday, was very different. Theisen's entire class learned on the go as they clicked and clacked on laptops as part of a worldwide event from their Manitowish Waters school.
