Green Bay Packers: Complete 2014 NFL Draft Wrap-Up and Analysis
Craig Ruttle/Associated Press

After an interesting draft weekend for the Packers, the team has clearly made improvements to their 2014 roster.

Starting with two popular picks, Ted Thompson closed the second day of the draft with two selections that seemed offbeat at the time. Nevertheless, there are at least five Packers who could contribute in an immediate rotation in 2014.

Likely the draft they wanted heading into the weekend, as it was the first one in which Thompson didn't make a draft-day trade, he and the Packers cleaned up at the tail end after stealing a falling star in the first round.

Green Bay's idea seemed to be to reload though the draft. After two seasons of trying to find a Nick Collins replacement, he was found. After losing three premier receivers in two years, with three slated to hit free agency in 2015, Thompson took three value picks at receiver.

The Packers left the rest of the NFL with an impression. They were here to compete for years down the line, not just focusing on the short term.
