    The Green Bay Packers Wednesday signed RB DeShawn Wynn and TE Clark Harris, the final two players they selected in the 2007 NFL Draft, and released C Pete Bier and DT Devarick Scandrett. Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson made the announcement.

    Wynn, a 5-foot-10, 232-pound selection out of Florida, was the Packers' first of two seventh-round choices (228th overall). After Brandon Jackson, selected five rounds earlier in the same draft, Wynn became just the second running back chosen by the Packers since 2002. He was Florida's leading ground-gainer each of the past two years, including its National Championship season of 2006. Among freshmen in Florida annals, his seven rushing TDs in 2003 ranked third in school history, trailing only Emmitt Smith (13 in 1987) and Fred Taylor (eight in 1994).

    Harris, a 6-foot-5, 256-pound choice from Rutgers, was Green Bay's final 2007 selection (243rd overall), the first tight end selected by Green Bay since David Martin in 2001. Despite playing in a run-oriented college offense, Harris caught 143 career passes for 2,015 yards and 11 touchdowns. He helped turn around a Rutgers program that went 1-11 in 2002 and finished 11-2 with a second straight bowl appearance in 2006.
