Packers trade up (via Seahawks) to pick safety Darnell Savage Jr.

Green Bay (AP/WKOW) – The Green Bay Packers are working hard to improve their defense. After taking defensive end Rashan Gary at No. 12, the Packers traded up to No. 21 from 30th overall to select speedy safety Darnell Savage Jr. of Maryland.

The Packers obviously like the safety who ran a 4.36-second 40-yard dash at the combine in February.
The Seahawks picked at No. 30 and also added a pair of fourth-round selections at Nos. 114 and 118 in the deal.

Savage was a three-year starter for the Terps, had four interceptions as a senior with 52 tackles (38 solo) and was second on the team with 5.5 tackles for loss.

Green Bay will pick next on Friday night with the 44th pick in the second round.
