Green Bay Packers: Draft Strategy
Green Bay has a few urgent needs for next season, and a few positions that could use more depth. They have three primary needs; a Left Tackle to develop under Chad Clifton, an Outside Linebacker to play across from Clay Matthews, and a Corner Back to eventually step in for Green Bay's aging Charles Woodson and Al Harris. Green Bay would also like to add explosiveness to their Running Backs, and find a strong safety who excels in coverage.
Green Bay has many options drafting 23rd in the first round. Obviously they have three choices; stay put at 23, trade up for another first rounder, trade down. What they should do completely depends on who is available.
If a top Left Tackle is available Ted Thompson will have to take him. There are four top tackles in this draft.
- Russell Okung
- Trent Williams
- Bryan Bullaga
- Anthony Davis
Assuming those four players are picked Thompson will simply have to go with the best available player. Here is a mini draft board for the 23rd pick
