The 12 teams who made the postseason all finished in the top-18...

Packers: Why Jared Abbrederis is the Perfect WR for Green Bay in 2014 Draft

If there is one position that Packers General Manager Ted Thompson knows how to draft, its wide receiver. Like any GM in the NFL, Thompson's draft record if far from perfect but its hard to argue with his results at receiver.

NFL Draft Series 2014: Grading the Packers' 2011 draft

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The only downside to a team winning the Super Bowl is getting the last pick in each round of that year's draft.

NFL Draft Series 2014: Grading the 2009 draft

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It's common practice for media (and fans) to analyze each NFL team's draft selections just moments after the picks are made. Was this the best available player? Did it fill a need on the roster? Was it perhaps a reach to take that player at that spot? Was there a player who fit a more pressing need still on the board who got passed over? While those are...
