Everybody knew that the Packers were going to go heavy on defensive picks in this upcoming draft, and they did not disappoint. The Packers drafted only two offensive player in this years draft and have made it clear they want to fix the issues they had on defense last year. What follows is a short bio on each player drafted in the two days.
Pick #51 – Jerel Worthy – Defensive End, Michigan State
I watched this guy play his final years at Michigan State when watching Big 10 football and I think the Packers made a great pick by drafting this guy. He is a big strong defender who is also very quick for a guy his size. He will be great at bringing pressure on the quarterback but will also be able to help stop the run, he is a great dual threat defender. He could make a big impact right away for the Packers.
Pick #62 – Casey Hayward – Cornerback, Vanderbilt
I don’t know much about Hayward but after reading up on him he sounds like a great pick. Being from Vanderbilt you know he’s go...

SOME OTHER TIME PERHAPS
The Packers QB revealed he has been invited to host Saturday Night Live, but has declined for now, saying it would require too big of a commitment this offseason.
As far as regular season records are concerned, nobody did it better than the Packers last season.
Unfortunately, that ended up translating into the title of "most prestigious loser." The Packers' secondary got torched early and often throughout the season and the Giants made them pay the ultimate seasonal price for not addressing it. They also had a running game...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Trading up in the NFL draft is something Packers general manager Ted Thompson rarely does. It goes against everything in his nature, his upbringing and his beliefs in how to run an organization.
So when Thompson moved up not once, not twice but three times in this year's draft, he wasn't quite feeling like himself afterward.
OH THE IRONY
Tennessee-Chattanooga quarterback B.J. Coleman, who was drafted by the Packers, got some assistance from Brett Favre in preparing for the draft.
Here's a quick-hitting review of the Green Bay Packers' eight-man draft class, starting with outside linebacker Nick Perry and concluding with quarterback B.J. Coleman.
New Packers cornerback Casey Hayward, a do-it-all defender from Vanderbilt, relives his second-round selection in this fresh interview with Packer Report. What did it feel like to be drafted, what is he looking forward to and what is his one and only disappointment about landing in Green Bay?
Aaron Rodgers wouldn't dare play a game without preparing, and it appears he has the same work ethic when it comes to comedy. Rodgers told 1090 AM San Diego this week that he has been asked to host Saturday Night Live, but he said no because he didn't think he'd have time to do it well. "I have been invited," he said. "I want to do it right, and the commitment...
1. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers He might struggle with a new Offensive Coordinator, but you’re still looking at forty touchdowns. 2. Tom Brady, QB, Patriots A new Offensive Coordinator, but a familiar one. McDaniels has more weapons to work with this time around, too. 3. Matthew Stafford, QB, Lions The Lions will once [...]
There is very little reason to doubt Packers general manager Ted Thompson when it comes to the NFL draft.
After all, during Thompson's seven years running the draft in Green Bay, he was the one responsible for drafting Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, B.J. Raji and Nick Collins, to name a few.
So, after Thompson's newest class of draftees included...
