No worries if Packers’ Ha Ha Clinton-Dix isn’t an Immediate Starter

If Packers first-round pick Ha Ha Clinton-Dix isn’t a day one starter, don’t panic. Packers general manger Ted Thompson’s batting average on recent first-round draft picks is below the Mendoza Line. For you non-baseball fans, that means Thompson is hitting under .200 with a lot of tappers back to the pitcher or lazy popups instead of line drives to the gap or tape-measure home...

The Green Bay Packers offensive line ranked 24th last year in sacks allowed. Some of that can be contributed to Aaron Rodgers holding onto the ball too long. Some of it can be contributed to the fact Scott Tolzien and Matt Flynn were gun shy and don’t have the best pocket presence.
