    I think the Packers will receive a 4th round comp pick for Cullen Jenkins, a 4th for Daryn Colledge, a 7th for Brandon Jackson & Jason Spitz to go along with the Jets 7th round pick they obtained at the end of training camp.

    This draft I see Thompson focusing on the defense but trying to add quality players when he can on offense. None of the offensive players would be expected to make an instant impact in 2012, unlike last year with Randall Cobb, rather fill-out the roster and provide even more depth to an already deep team.

    I think the following players will be traded/cut/released, not re-signed or retire:

    Chad Clifton
    Scott Wells (Signed by St. Louis)
    Matt Flynn (Signed by Seattle)
    Ryan Grant
    Howard Green
    Erik Walden
    Frank Zombo
    Pat Lee


    I think the following players will be or have been re-signed

    JerMichael Finley (re-signed 2 years $14+ million)
    Donald Driver (restructured contract)
    Jarrett Bush (re-signed 3years undisclosed dollar amount)Nick Collins (returns from neck injury)

    Mock Draft V.6.0

    Round 1: Kendall Reyes- DE- UConn: The Packers need to upgrade their 5 technique position and Fletcher Cox should already be gone by the time they pick. Reyes should be there and could be the guy to help the Packers out big time. He had a nice combine and solid production at UConn. He would be an instant upgrade over Jarius Wynn and CJ Wilson.

    Round 2: Cam Johnson- OLB- UVA: Johnson played OLB in UVA's defense under Al Groh for a couple years and was a pass rushing machine. This past year he put his hand on the ground as a 4-3 DE and was decent. Johnson has the size and pass rushing ability to be a very good play opposite of Matthews and the understanding of the 3-4 defense to start from day one.

    Round 3: Chase Minnifield- CB- UVA: Minnifield has some questions regarding his timed speed and his knee's which is causing him to slip into the 3rd to 5th round range. He fits what the Packers look for in a CB and has the intangibles and ability to come in and get playing time soon. I also know that the Packers front office really likes him.


    Round 4 (1): David Molk- C- Michigan: Scott Wells left via FA (the Rams) and only Thompson knows if he bring in a FA to take over for Wells, possibly Jeff Saturday. But Molk brings that nasty that the Packers O-Line needs more of. He would be a great compliment to the Packers young O-Line that has gotten better over the past few years. .



    Round 4 (2): Cyrus Grey- RB- Texas A&M
    Grey fits the Packers running scheme nicely and would be a solid compliment to James Starks. He had a great combine capped off by running a 4.47. Some scouts question if he can be an every down back, but with the Packers and Mike McCarthy using a RB by committee, Grey would be fine.


    Round 4 (3): Ryan Broyles- WR- Oklahoma
    Broyles has the ability to be a 1st round guy but he tore his knee up his senior year and he will most likely start the year on PUP or IR. He reminds me of Greg Jennings, he's fluid, soft hands and understands the WR position. At this point he'd be a steal IF he were to be there.


    Round 5: Akiem Hicks- DL- Regina
    Hicks is a RAW prospect that has crazy tools and off the chart measurable's (6'4,/324, 84' wingspan). He was supposed to attend LSU but there were some recruiting issues that didn't allow Hicks to go play for the Tigers. Hicks needs work on technique and displays nice overall quickness. He has the look of a sleeper and potential to be a stud.


    Round 6: Matt Reynolds- OT- BYU
    Reynolds has the size and seems to have the ability to be a solid pro prospect. The Packers don't need him to start right away, they have Bulaga and Newhouse/Sherrod to hold it down. But with Sherrod possibly starting the season on the PUP list they do need to add depth and Reynolds would provide that.


    Round 7 (1): Case Keenum- QB- Houston: I like Keenum more then most people. I think he has the basic fundamentals to be a guy that can develop into a solid NFL back-up QB. He has experience in the spread offense and is accurate. Like Matt Flynn his arm strength is a question mark, but learning under Mike McCarthy, Tom Clements and the Packers new QB coach McAdoo and attending McCarthy's QB camp, he could be another Flynn.

    Round 7 (2): Chris Greenwood- CB- Albion
    I really like this kid A LOT! Greenwood has the size (6'1/196) and projected speed (4.37) to intrigue teams late in the draft. The level of competition is a huge question with Greenwood. He literally shut down half of the field for 3 years while attending Albion. Greenwood also has the type of personality that would make him a perfect fit in the Green Bay locker room, humble, hard working and eager to learn. This kid is more of an athlete then CB right now, but if Joe Whitt Jr. can tap into his potential like he did Shields a couple years ago, the Packers would be suddenly deep at CB.


    Round 7 (3): Julian Miller- DE- West Virginia
    Bruce Irvin gets all kinds of credit and is the higher rated prospect but Miller has a knack to get to the QB. He provides depth and could be a steal at this point in the draft, a point where he most likely will fall too.


    Round 7 (4): Kelcie McCray- S- Arkansas St.
    At this point in the draft you want to try and add depth and maybe catch lightning in a bottle. McCray had a nice combine and his tape is even better. He is a player that is starting to climb up draft boards.
