2016 NFL Draft reaction video: Dean Lowry, Dan Vitale drafted by Green Bay Packers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Zach Pereles and Josh Burton have your live reaction to Dean Lowry and Dan Vitale getting drafted.

EVANSTON -- Dean Lowry is a Green Bay Packer. Dan Vitale is a Tampa Bay Buccaneer. Zach Pereles and Josh Burton are Inside NU writers reacting to those selections.

Deep inside the Inside NU War RoomTM, Burton and Pereles break down how Lowry, a fourth round pick, will fit in with the Packers. Green Bay runs a 3-4 defense under Dom Capers and majorly struggled to stop the run last year; Lowry is part of a major overhaul in the front seven, and should get an opportunity to earn playing time early in his career given the Packers' relative lack of depth there.

Vitale, meanwhile, is the only fullback on the Tampa Bay roster and joins a team with a lot of talent around him. He'll be sharing a backfield with last year's No. 1 overall pick Jameis Winston as well as Pro Bowler Doug Martin. The Bucs will expect him to be able to protect Winston, lead the way for Martin and perhaps catch a few passes, too.
