Ted Thompson

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.

    Odds are in Packers favor? Unless of course you factor in Teds 1st round results since 2005. That is the moment when you discover that this article is worthless, on basing what has happened with the last 10 years picks of the 27th pick. which has absolutely no bearing on the quality of player that will be chosen with the 27th pick this year.
