2011 NFL Draft: First Round Prospects for Ted Thompson and the Green Bay Packers
This statement really couldn't be more true, and the Green Bay Packers have used that type of thinking in building themselves a Super Bowl winning roster.
In the past seven drafts, the Packers have hit first round home runs with Aaron Rodgers (24th in 2005), Clay Matthews (26th in 2009) and B.J. Raji (9th in '09), and struck out only once with Justin Harrell (16th in 2007).
With the No. 32 overall pick in this year's draft, you typically don't see as many good pitches to hit home runs. However, the Packers have one of the NFL's best scouting departments, and you'd have to think Green Bay will find a home run type player at the end of the 2011 NFL Draft.
Let's break down some of the guys who might get a call from Thompson and the Packers at No. 32.
