Green Bay, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - The Green Bay Packers completed the process of getting their 2014 draft class under contract with Thursday's signings of wide receiver Davante Adams and tight end Richard Rodgers.

Adams, the 53rd overall choice, set a Mountain West conference record with 38 career touchdown catches in just two seasons at Fresno State, where the 6- foot-1 wideout also established a Bulldogs' all-time mark with 233 receptions.

Rodgers, one of two third-round selections by Green Bay, recorded career bests of 39 catches and 608 yards as a junior at the University of California this past fall.

The 22-year-old is not related to current Packers quarterback and former Cal standout Aaron Rodgers.

Green Bay had already locked up its first-round pick, Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, back on May 30.
