Packers GM Ted Thompson and Head Coach Mike McCarthy completed their eight draft together this weekend
The 2013 NFL Draft is in the books which means the Green Bay Packers have made all of their selections and we know who will be joining the team in training camp come late July. Our team at ALLGBP.com has done a fantastic job in breaking down each of these players and be sure to check out each and get to know your newest Packer players!
Let’s take a look at this year’s full slate of draft picks:
26th, 26th overall – Datone Jones, DE, UCLA
Many expected this pick if the Packers were staying put in round one. Many say Jones was a great value at 26th overall and should start right away. Helps solidify a position of need.
29th, 61st overall (from 49ers) – Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama
After several draft analysts had Lacy going to the Packers in round one and even before their pick, Green Bay had to be shocked to see him fall into their laps in round two. Touted by many as...

Ted Thompson just presided over his ninth draft as Packer GM
With the NFL draft now complete several things have become clear: the Packers’ coaching staff feels a lot better about the middle of its defense than the pundits do, and that they are finally planning to pay more than just lip service to the team’s running game.
After being exposed on defense in the playoffs the expectation...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Ted Thompson believes the key to late-round draft success is having as many picks as possible. The Green Bay Packers' general manager likens it to baseball in that the more swings at the plate available, the more likely one of them will be a hit.
On the final day of the 2013 NFL Draft, Thompson exercised that philosophy to its fullest, selecting nine players...
Must… Find… Hidden… Gems…
The 2013 NFL draft is in the books but this is when Green Bay Packers GM Ted Thompson’s dirty work is just beginning. Thompson has forged a reputation for being a huge proponent of using undrafted free agency to find some hidden gems. Some examples of those past finds are Tramon Williams, Sam Shields, M.D. Jennings, Don Barclay and Dezman Moses...
No wonder Ted Thompson was content to trade back on Friday. There is plenty of talent still on the board, including an abundance of linebackers. Here's a good guess at the strengths and weaknesses of the draft board heading into Saturday.
In a bizarre day at Lambeau Field, Ted Thompson added four picks to give himself 10 shots at hitting the lottery on Saturday. He also "lost" on his three trades and made two deals with rival San Francisco, which took four players in the first three rounds compared to the Packers' two.

Who will replace Greg Jennings in 2013 is one of many questions left after the draft
The Green Bay Packers added 11 new players to their offseason roster via this past weekend’s NFL draft. Packers GM Ted Thompson, as he does every year, maneuvered around and was able to add some additional picks to the stash that he began the draft with.
Heading into the draft, the team’s biggest...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Ted Thompson and the entire Green Bay Packers' front office deserve a lot of credit for taking care of Aaron Rodgers two years before the team had to.
This was not a Joe Flacco situation for the Packers and their star quarterback. Green Bay wasn't in danger of potentially losing Rodgers to another team had this new deal not been agreed upon now.
Packers GM Ted Thompson
It’s been said over and over, but while the 2013 NFL Draft lacks star power at the top, it’s extremely deep in rounds two and three. So that should make for an exciting Day 2 tonight.
You’ll notice plenty of first-round talent on the board between picks 33-62. There are even some players in the third round that had a shot at being selected in round one...
Let’s give Ted Thompson and his crew another pat on the back as the Green Bay Packers fan-dangled a highly regarded draft class once again.
The Packers traded for more picks, took advantage of sliding prospects and took the necessary chances on unknown players.
Here’s what I thought of each and every one of Green Bay’s eleven picks in the 2013 NFL Draft:
#1 (26th 0verall)...
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers
According to the team’s official website, the Packers have signed quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a multi-year contract extension.
The move was announced Friday by Packers general manager Ted Thompson. Terms of the deal have not yet been released, but the deal will make Rodgers the highest paid player in league history.
“Aaron is a true professional and...
No running back during Ted Thompson’s tenure in Green Bay has been selected higher than Alabama’s Eddie Lacy. But Lacy’s fall in the draft is the big story. Read what Thompson, the Packers’ director of college scouting and a former NFL general manager said about Lacy on Friday night.
The Green Bay Packers came through the three days and seven rounds of the 2013 NFL Draft with 11 selections when it was all said and done. GM Ted Thompson started off on Thursday with eight picks, wound up at the end of that day with a total of 10 yet to be used for the remaining rounds; yes, that would make 12 overall. But he used one of those picks on Day 2 to move up a few spots...
