2012 Green Bay Packers Draft Wish List by Position: Outside Linebacker

Would a healthy Frank Zombo improve the pass rush opposite of Clay Mathews?

Let's face it. When designing a mock draft, none of us know which teams will trade up, down, sign key free agents, let stars walk or cut current players for salary cap reasons.

Thus, the order can become irrelevant and planning for a certain slot may be futile.  New rules in rookie salaries may make even the most historically unmovable picks in the Top 10 of the draft fair game for trades.

With this new dynamic quality of the draft in mind, I decided to create a Green Bay Packers Draft Wish List rather than mocking the temporary slots or undecided compensation slots.

The approach will focus on positions that could use a little more 'oomph' or even a star player, despite having possibly the most loaded roster in football. 

The secondary factor in these picks is how they fit in the Packers' current offensive or defensive systems. 

The first installment features possible 3-4 outside linebackers, one of the toughest positions to project due to its numerous responsibilities as both a pass rusher and coverage LB.
