Every year, prospects plummet for various reasons. Some do not pan out, others turn into stars. Some prospects fall due to character issues or lack of production in their final season. There have been notable players who have fallen due to a lack of elite talent.
Tom Brady fell to the sixth round because he supposedly didn't have sufficient arm strength. We all saw how that worked out. LeGarrette Blount fell two years ago because of character issues and turned into a serviceable back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after going undrafted.
So, who will be this year's Wes Welker or LeGarrette Blount?
I will break down players who have fallen down the boards, why they fell and how the Packers could use some of their picks on some of these guys.
Although character is a major factor in the Packers' draft decisions, some of these guys are worth the risk/reward for Ted Thompson.
