Green Bay Packers Mock Draft: Version 2.0

Could Vinny Curry be the Packers first pick?

Quite a bit has transpired NFL-wide since my mid-February mock draft.  In Green Bay alone, tight end Jermichael Finley's contract and the choice to let Flynn walk in free agency have big impacts on the Packers draft strategy.

In addition, it's good to admit when you're wrong. 

My choice of Vontaze Burfict, as a first-rounder no less, was a terrible one in hindsight.

Burfict either failed to provide effort or emerged out of shape at the combine, posting an offensive lineman's 40-yard dash time of 5.10.  If Burfict's on-field antics weren't enough of a red flag, his poor combine confirms he will plummet, possibly out of the first three rounds entirely.

That said, I wasn't the first to project the ultra-talented ILB that high and thus we move on.

Here's a look at an updated Packers mock draft that takes into account a likely third-round draft pick compensation for last year's lost free agents, without any compensation coming from Flynn until 2013.

It will be interesting to see what effect, if any, the Saints upcoming "Bountygate" punishments have on the NFL draft landscape as well.

For the first round, I've also added a "stand pat, trade-up and trade-down" feature since all three of these options could be possible for Thompson.
