Packers D-line coach Mike Trgovac spoke to media Friday night on third-round pick of Khyri Thornton:

*He played all positions at Southern Miss. Will have flexibility with him.

*Biggest thing is when you watch guy on 1-24 team, his competitiveness in those games. It's hard when you're losing to keep spirits going. He didn't have problem with that.

*He looks like guy who's trying to keep teammates fired up.

*He didn't have problem being stout against run at 5 technique.

*He ran 5 flat 40 over 300 pounds. That impressed me most.

*He'll have a chance at 3 and 5 technique. Will give him opportunity to compete.

*He kept battling and going hard. He had right demeanor to him.

*On Julius Peppers: He looks good. He's a great athlete. He just runs with ease. He's matured a lot.

*I feel good about adding D-linemen the last few years in draft.

*It's transition of league to younger players. We've got good leadership. Raji has done nice job, Mike Daniels has grown into that role.

*We'll see how Raji is going to be different this year
