GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — There are plenty of options available at the start of Day 2 of the NFL draft for the Green Bay Packers if they decide to fill a need at inside linebacker.

The biggest question might be whether those top prospects will still be there Friday night, where the Packers hold the 62nd pick overall late in the second round.

Inside linebackers Paul Dawson, Eric Kendricks, Benardrick McKinney and Denzel Perryman were all bypassed in the first round on Thursday night.

The Packers went with Arizona State defensive back Damarious Randall with their first pick, the 30th overall. Linebacker might be the next biggest need. Green Bay cut ties with veterans A.J. Hawk and Brad Jones in the offseason.
