Packers' 1st-round pick Randall picking up corner on the fly

Posted:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Damarious Randall is learning about life as an NFL cornerback on the fly.

If the Green Bay Packers' first-round draft pick is going to make mistakes, it might as well happen in training camp against some of the best playmakers in the business in teammates Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson.

Having to face that kind of test in practice helps make the high points of camp stand out for Randall, like when he picked off Rodgers earlier this week.

Randall said he's getting adjusted to the pace of the NFL. Nelson beat Randall for a long touchdown pass from Rodgers in camp on Tuesday.

Green Bay is looking for a cornerback to start opposite Sam Shields following the offseason departure of Tramon Williams.
