10 Years of Pick No. 27: Odds Are in Packers’ Favor
The Green Bay Packers will choose at No. 27 in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft Thursday evening, barring a trade.
We’re going to whip back in time real quick to see what kind of players have been taken at that slot in the past 10 drafts. More importantly, we’re going to look at if those players have been any good.
Need a cornerback?
The Packers don’t, but that’s been a hot pick at No. 27.
Four of the last 10 picks have been corners. Throw in a safety and half of the picks have been defensive backs.
Return on investment?
Well, there have been some pretty nice picks at No. 27. Here they are.
