Green Bay usually remains dormant on the free-agent market and 2013 has been no exception. The Packers, under general manager Ted Thompson, have stuck with their philosophy of "draft and develop" and the results have been strong overall.
However, just like every other GM in the league, Thompson sometimes goes for a "reach pick" in the draft. Green Bay will take a player in a round earlier than many expected that player to go. Sometimes this works out, sometimes it does not.
Packers fans don't need to be reminded of Justin Harrell.
What about 2013? Are there any players on Green Bay's radar that they could grab earlier than expected?
Yes there are. Here are five reach picks that Green Bay must avoid in the 2013 NFL Draft.
