The Packers’ roller coaster season saw them make the playoffs for an eighth straight year before falling in the NFC Championship Game to the Falcons. How will they use their picks in the NFL draft? Our draft analyst Chris Burke is breaking down every selection below.

Here's the full list of picks the Packers hold in the 2017 draft, which will be updated as each selection is made.

Round 2, Pick 1 (33rd overall) (From Browns)

Kevin King, CB, Washington: An early reminder that Day 2 will be loaded with talent. King is not as complete a cornerback as his former Washington teammate, the injured Sidney Jones, but he checks off the size-speed combo at cornerback. He gives the Packers a potential top-two outside cornerback.​ GRADE: B+

Round 2, Pick 29 (No. 61)

Josh Jones, S, N.C. State: The Packers keep stockpiling players in the secondary—Jones on top of earlier pick Kevin King. That loss to the Falcons in the NFC title game clearly stuck in their minds, as their banged-up secondary could not match up. Jones doesn’t necessarily have a clear path to playing time right away, but Morgan Burnett’s a soon-to-be free agent. GRADE: B​

Round 3, Pick 29 (No. 93)

Montravius Adams, DT, Auburn: Can the Packers get Adams to keep the light flipped on? The Auburn product flashed dominance at times, and he can bring it from several spots in the 3-4 alignment, but the glimpses of brilliance only made his long quiet stretches more frustrating. With Kenny Clark and Mike Daniels already in place, Adams could be eased into action. GRADE: B​

Round 4, Pick 1 (No. 108) (From Browns) Vince Biegel, LB, Wisconsin

Round 4, Pick 28 (No. 134) Jamaal Williams, RB, Brigham Young University

Round 5, Pick 32 (No. 175) (From Broncos) DeAngelo Yancey, WR, Purdue

Round 5, Pick 39 (No. 182) (Compensatory pick) Aaron Jones, RB, UTEP

Round 6, Pick 29 (No. 212) Kofi Amichia, C, USF

Round 7, Pick 20 (No. 238) Devante Mays, RB, Utah State

Round 7, Pick 29 (No. 247) Malachi Dupre, WR, LSU
