NFL Draft 2011: Who Do the Packers Help, Rodgers or Matthews & Co.?

Whose job will Ted Thompson make easier?

The 2011 draft is just hours away, and mocks are abound across the web.  Instead of a mock, this slideshow will raise the question of what position will be available, and ultimately who will be drafted by the Green Bay Packers with their first pick. 

The five primary needs that are likely to be available at this spot are OT, DE, OLB, OG, and RB.  Ted Thompson (TT) has shown that he likes to take trench players in the first several rounds, but will he this year?  Who should he take, as in who do Packer fans want him to take? 

This draft will not delve too deeply into the possibility of trading down, but will account briefly for the possibility of this happening.  Furthermore, if Thompson does trade down, its unlikely that he'll trade far into the 2nd round, thus making the players highlighted in this article possibly still in play.
