GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – The Packers get their nose tackle Kenny Clark some help on the defensive line with the 173rd selection. They take Tedarrell Slaton, a defensive lineman out of the University of Florida.

Slaton is a run-stuffing nose tackle and for someone who is 358 pounds, he’s surprisingly nimble.

Reports say he’s a massive athlete with the raw power and promising technique.

Slaton finished his career at Florida with 45 games played with 98 tackles and 3.5 sacks.
