2011 NFL Mock Draft: Green Bay Packers Steal Akeem Ayers at No. 32
2011 NFL Mock Draft Sees UCLA LB Akeem Ayers Falling to Green Bay Packers at No. 32
The defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers have a ton of talent and few needs, however, that is not to say that can't use a few upgrades or future additions.
Looking at their offensive line, they know eventually they will need a new tackle and this draft has a few. Defensively their biggest needs come in the front seven, but they could also jump on the right secondary prospect if the value is right.

UCLA's Akeem Ayers has fallen down the board in this scenario and the Packers are very happy about it. The former Bruin has good size, speed, and athleticism, but most of all he is a great football player when the pads are on.
Ayers has the ability to lineup opposite Clay Matthews Jr. and be a force in every phase of the game. He can drop in coverage, break down in space and is very successful getting after the quarterback. He is always around the football and is the type of player that Packers will love.
