Green Bay Packers
Mississippi State Bulldogs
Illinois State Redbirds
First Round: Datone Jones, DE, UCLA
ANALYSIS: I've been mocking this pick to them for a while, and I really love the fit. He fills Green Bay's biggest need of a pass rushing DE (in the 3-4), he provides good value, and I think he will excel in Green Bay. Not to mention he will also take tons of pressure of Matthews and Perry coming from the OLB position. It was a tossup between Williams and Jones here, but I love this pick.
Second Round: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama
Tons of mock drafts had the Packers taking Lacy in the first round, but they were able to sit back and wait till their second round selection to grab him. Amazing. Aaron Rodgers finally has a running game; opposing defenses should be very worried.
Fourth Round: David Bakhtiari, C/G/T, Colorado / J.C. Tretter, OG/C, Cornell / Johnathan Franklin, RB, UCLA
An amazing fourth round for the Packers. Bakhtiari can play absolutely any position on the line, and Tretter can play any o...

Not much went well for the Packers following the departure of Vince Lombardi.
After five titles in nine seasons, the team from Titletown tumbled into the lower tier of the NFL. The Lombardi Era team had grown old, and could not recapture the glory of earlier years.
A 6-7-1 season in 1968 followed by an average 8-6 campaign in 1969 did little to inspire much confidence in a return...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It's been a busy and productive year for Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy and the rest of the team's executives.
Setting the franchise's all-time record for profit in 2012 of 43 million -- in addition to 64 million raised in the recent stock sale -- has allowed Murphy and the Packers to be able to accomplish all of their goals. The most important...

It’s unclear what took so long, but interest in Charles Woodson is finally picking up.
The veteran defensive back has received interest from the Raiders, Broncos and Panthers, according to Josina Anderson of ESPN. Oakland even sent an initial offer to Woodson.

Lombardi expects the Broncos to use Woodson in a dual role safety-cornerback role, assuming that they sign him of course.
Woodson, 36, recently mentioned that he’s willing to play for anyone next season after finding almost no interest on the free...
Much like Brian Urlacher the market for former Green Bay Packers defensive back Charles Woodson has been exceptionally cold. Since his visit with the San Francisco 49ers in March there hasn’t been any mentions of him, anywhere. That changed today in a big way with multiple teams showing interest. They include the Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders and the Carolina Panthers.
NEENAH, Wis. -- It won't be long until Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers are officially reunited in some way.
Nearly five years after the Packers traded a disgruntled Favre to the New York Jets, the franchise is getting ready to reach back out to the now-retired quarterback.
"We want to have him (Favre) back in the family," Packers president CEO Mark Murphy told...
