2012 NFL Mock Draft: Full Green Bay Packers Mock Draft Version 1.0

This year's draft needs to provide Clay Mathews with some superhero sidekicks.

Amid the Packers great success, General Manager Ted Thompson certainly has caused some headscratchers in Packer nation over the years.

Trading down to get relatively unknown, unhyped receiver Jordy Nelson?  That move wasn't too popular on draft day, but if you had told fans you'd have the Jordy Nelson of today back in 2008-09, they'd be delighted.

Over the last year or two fans were demanding a compatriot to aid Clay Mathews in the pass rush.  

And of course Thompson picks the unglamorous first round choice of two offensive tackles (Derek Sherrod and Bryan Bulaga).

This year, Thompson will surely make some surprise moves in the offseason with the draft as his main franchise building tool.

In my mock draft, I'm considering defenders to be not only needs but also the highest quality players from the late first to the mid rounds.  This mock discovers it may be possible to get not only 1 impact player for the defense to improve its pass rush but possibly 3 or even 4 great talents to fit the Dom Capers system.

Note: each selection is listed as "selection" (except round one) rather than by round because the Packers will be receiving compensation picks and could trade their standard picks up or down.  In other words, this is a mock draft based on the likely total of picks, where some could be found in the same round-- not based on a round-by-round mock.  Capeche?
