Packers draft linebacker Bradford in 4th round

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers went defensive with their draft pick Saturday, selecting Arizona State linebacker Carl Bradford at No. 121 in the fourth round.

Bradford started 28 games in three seasons for the Sun Devils. He had 21.5 sacks, 154 tackles and 43 tackles for loss. Bradford entered the draft after his junior year, but he proved most dominant in his sophomore season with 11. 5 sacks and 81 tackles.

Bradford was mostly an outside rusher, but could transition to an inside linebacker for the Packers.

The Packers filled four of their biggest needs with their first four picks, taking a safety, wide receiver, tight end and linebacker.
