Ted Thompson has long established himself as a top flight executive in the National Football League.
He has a great eye for talent, takes care of his own players first and—for the most part—avoids making bone-headed decisions on draft day.
Before coming to Green Bay, he had a great run in Seattle as Vice President of Football Operations. The Seahawks were able to gather a lot of talent, including record breaking running back Shaun Alexander. They made the playoffs numerous times, and the year after he departed for the Packers, the Seahawks made an appearance in the Super Bowl with his stamp all over the team.
Former Packers head coach Mike Holmgren said of Thompson in an interview, "Once Ted Thompson came on board and we settled down a little bit, we started making good decisions."
And that is what Ted Thompson is best known for. Making good decisions. But that isn't to say that every decision he makes is the right one.
Here are the most likely mistakes Ted Thompson will make during the 2012 NFL offseason.
