Packers select DB Rollins in Round 2 of NFL Draft

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- One year of college football was all Quinten Rollins needed to become the Green Bay Packers' second-round pick.

After a four-year basketball career at Miami (Ohio), Rollins decided to play football as a fifth-year senior. He had seven interceptions, 16 passes defensed and four tackles for loss in 2014.

"He was probably their best player Week 2 of the season, and he had only played since that spring," director of college scouting Brian Gutenkunst said.

The Packers went back-to-back selecting cornerbacks to begin the 2015 draft. While Rollins chose basketball after high school, first-round pick Damarious Randall opted for baseball as he entered college. Rollins and Randall will effectively replace Tramon Williams and Davon House, both of whom signed elsewhere in free agency.
