Thursday will mark the beginning of Ted Thompson’s 12th draft as the Green Bay Packers general manager.
Thompson makes his living off the draft. It’s how the majority of the Green Bay Packers roster has been constructed.
Many fête Thompson for his draft genius and sure, he’s had his moments. He’s also had some colossal failures.
Like pretty much the entirety of the 2011 draft, which we profiled on Monday.
But we’re not here to talk about failure today. We’re here to talk about winning.
And with that, Ted Thompson’s best draft picks by round.
Gotta go with Jordy over Collins in Round 2. More impact by far, made even more evident last year when the offense went off the rails when he went down.
Collins loss had that effect on the back end, but the entire defense didn’t decide to cash it in the year he jacked up his neck.
Collins over Nelson? What the fuck
Collins was probably the best in the league at his position. I don’t think the same can be said for Nelson.
Go rewatch the mix tape of every Jay Cutler interception to the Packers on YouTube. Nick Collins, man.
As much as I love Jordy. I have to agree with Collins. Still miss that guy.
