NFL Draft 2017: Packers' pick Kevin King explains decision to return to Philly for Day 2

King is reportedly the only non-drafted player to return for the second day.

New Packers corner Kevin King was projected as a first-round pick, but didn't get the call Thursday in Philadelphia.

But, unlike others, he didn't let that get him down.

King was the only player — who didn't get drafted in Round 1 — returning to the green room for Day 2. The four other attendees who weren't called on Day 1 (DeShone Kizer, Cameron Robinson, Malik McDowell and Chidobe Awuzie) all decided to skip Rounds 2 and 3 in Philly.

King was in good spirits, especially after being selected by the Packers with the first pick of the second round (No. 33 overall), and explained his decision to attend again before Friday night's events began.

The good news for King is that he didn't have to wait long to fulfill that dream. He was one of the best players available on Day 2.

UPDATE: King really didn't have to wait long. He was the first player selected in the second round.
