2015 NFL Draft

Packers Reportedly Interested in Trading Back

Ted Thompson

Trader Ted may strike again before the day is over. The Green Bay Packers are reportedly interested in trading out of the first round of the NFL Draft.

Ian Rapoport suggests Jacksonville may want to trade into the last part of the first round by dealing their second-round pick (No. 36) and another pick. If that scenario comes to fruition, the Packers would be dropping six spots and picking up an additional draft choice.

You know, because we want quantity, not quality! One of these guys is bound to be good five years from now!

Seriously, if there’s no difference between the 30th-ranked guy on the Packers’ draft board and 36th-ranked guy, then what the hell? I know we all want to see a shiny, new first-round draft pick tonight, but go ahead and trade out, if that’s the case.

Thompson sucks at choosing guys in the first round anyway. The only really good first-round picks he’s made in 10 years are Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews. There are just as many out-and-out busts — Derek Sherrod and Justin Harrell — and soon-to-be busts — Nick Perry and Datone Jones.

Thompson has, frankly, been much better in the second round. Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings, Eddie Lacy, Casey Hayward, Randall Cobb, Davante Adams and Nick Collins were all second-round picks made by Thompson.

    Yeah, Rodgers, Matthews, Bulaga, and Clinton-Dix were terrible choices in the first round. Stick to the comedy, Hollywood.

    Ted has done very well in the 2nd round. If the guy isn’t there, I’m in with a trade back for another 2nd.

    You really think a player selected in the first versus second round makes a difference? When there was 30 teams in the league the last two picks now first round were 2nd round picks. It’s almost arbitrary. Please let the boring as shit draft be over. Make sure you all buy your special draft caps though!

    I wish he fucking would’ve traded out, my god. Worst fucking pick he’s ever made, including MacMillain.
