Packers go offense, take OT Datko


 GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers finally took an offensive player in the NFL draft, selecting Florida State offensive tackle Andrew Datko with the first of two seventh-round compensatory picks.

   The 6-6, 319-pound Datko missed most of last season with a shoulder injury. He started 40 games in four seasons, taking over as the Seminoles' left tackle as a freshman.

   The Packers took defensive players with their first six picks in the draft this year, after taking offensive players with five of their first six picks last year.
