Already the draft landscape has changed with more underclassmen declaring and events like the Senior Bowl boosting or hindering prospects’ draft stock. Things will continue to get interesting as the NFL Scouting Combine comes around in a couple of weeks and players showcase their abilities in pro days and individual team workouts.
Granted that, we can still have a general idea where many players may fall in the draft, and all early indications show that there will be a breath of talent on day two for teams looking for impact players in the second and third rounds.
It is day two where many of the intriguing safety prospects are projected to be available, and the depth at positions like wide receiver, cornerback, and linebacker will allow teams like the Packers to get their chance at selecting a few starting-caliber players beyond the first round.
In fact, it seems it is day two of the draft where Ted Thompson and company really shine, so as Packers faithful, we should pay particular attention to who may be available in the second and third rounds because they may just be wearing Green and Gold next season.
