Green Bay Packers Mock 1.0: After the Senior Bowl

Casey Hayward, among the top NFL rookies last year, proved to be a great Ted Thompson pick.

Once again we've reached that point in the season where unless you've got your horse in the Super Bowl, it's time for armchair general managers to assess what's needed in their team's stable: the 53-man roster.

The standards among Packers fans have become so high that even undrafted rookie free agent tackles like Don Barclay are expected to perform at a playoff-caliber level (and kudos to Barclay, he indeed met the challenge).

Thus, anything less than a Super Bowl victory for Packer Nation results in speculation of firing coaches, making major personnel moves, spending in free agency (gasp!) as well as hoping for the Clay Mathews-esque stud in the Draft.

I for one, don't see any need for General Manager Ted Thompson to deviate too far astray from his draft-and-develop, "best player available" mantra.  That said, this mock seeks to address both short-term and long-term need at an early stage of prospect rankings post-Senior Bowl.
