David Bakhtiari and Don Barclay played admirably at offensive tackle for the Packers this past season, but they also had their lapses and are still young developing players.

The Packers will get back former first round picks Bryan Bulaga and Derek Sherrod next season, but it may not be a bad idea for Thompson to pick up a player like Erving. There is still no guarantee Bulaga will return as the same player or Sherrod will manage to stay healthy and push Barclay for playing time.

Regardless, the Packers could use more competition on the offensive line, and Erving is a versatile prospect that can play either tackle positions or be moved to guard.

Erving is light on his feet, has great size and strength, and is an aggressive blocker in the running game.

An offensive tackle may not be the perfect choice for the Packers in the first round, but the 2014 draft class is very deep at offensive line. Thompson just may take advantage of this depth and draft a quality offensive tackle with his first pick.
