Packers trade 55th pick, get 61st and sixth-rounder

Ted Thompson trades back to #61 and a sixth-rounder.

The Green Bay Packers have traded their 55th pick to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for the Niners’ 61st and a sixth-rounder.

We’re sure Ted Thompson is sure he can get the guy he has targeted and has taken the opportunity to pick up another selection tomorrow – not surprising.

So until that pick comes around, we provide a list of the first 20 players selected in the second round today.

Geno Smith finally got selected, Manti Te’o finally gets picked and today’s first 20 selections in the second round of the NFL Draft are history.

There were some players that came off the board that I feel would have fit well with the Packers: John Cyprien, Menelik Watson, Giovani Bernard …

Other big names in the start of this round were Robert Woods (Buffalo Bills),  Cornellius Carradine (49ers), and Zach Ertz (Eagles).

With the Packers still waiting to pick with the 55th selection, there are still many good players at all positions available.

Will it be running back, defensive back, wide receiver, or maybe another defensive lineman?

Stay tuned.
