David T. Ball is a Southern Methodist University alumnus who has volunteered for the Crawl for Cancer event in Dallas, Texas in each of the past five years. Despite residing in Dallas, David T. Ball is a fan of the National Football League’s (NFL) Wisconsin’s Green Bay Packers.

The Packers had two first-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft and used them to bolster its defensive unit by selecting linebacker Rashan Gary and safety Darnell Savage. Gary, taken with the No. 12 pick, spent the past three seasons at the University of Michigan, where he compiled 119 tackles, 23 of which were for a loss of yards, as well as 9.5 quarterback sacks, and one forced fumble. Savage, meanwhile, spent four seasons at the University of Maryland and accumulated 182 tackles, 13 defended passes, eight interceptions, and one fumble recovery.

Green Bay had eight picks in total. Management focused on offense in both the second and third rounds with the selections of Mississippi State guard Elgton Jenkins and Texas A&M tight end Jace Sternberger. Notre Dame running back Dexter Williams was taken in the sixth round. The Packers also added Texas A&M defensive lineman Kingsley Keke, Toldeo cornerback Ka’Dar Hollman, and Texas Christian linebacker Ty Summers.
