With the 2011 NFL Draft in the rearview mirror, it’s time to turn our attention to the impact each new player will have on the Packers’ 2011-2012 season.
As almost everyone has noted, the Packers came into this draft loaded with talent at virtually every position, so don’t expect any rookie to step into a starring role next season.
But this is not to say that Green Bay didn’t get better with this draft. They addressed some of their (relative) weaknesses, and added depth in all three phases of the game.
Players like Derek Sherrod, Randall Cobb and Alex Green may not have huge rookie campaigns, but each could be a multi-year starter for the Packers in the near future.
For a team as good as the Packers will be next season, that is an exciting thought.
