Although the Green Bay Packers still have five games yet to play in the 2012 season, it isn’t too early to look ahead to the 2013 NFL Draft.
With 11 games in the books, it’s safe to determine the weaknesses of this team and the players that should be drafted to fill in those needs.
It’s important to remember Green Bay could pick anywhere from the low 20s all the way up to 32, depending on how the season concludes.
So, unless Ted Thompson makes a huge trade up into the top 10, which I don’t see happening, the Packers surely won’t be drafting the likes of Monti T’eo, Jarvis Jones or any other top-flight prospects.
Here are eight players the Packers should strongly consider drafting with their first pick.
