Ted Thompson’s draft history: Why the Green Bay Packers are SB favorites

7 of 12

Ted Thompson’s draft picks … 2010

… and the reason the Packers are perennial Super Bowl contenders …

Take away the fifth round pick of Marshall Newhouse and this might be considered one of Thompson’s most consistent drafts. Bryan Bulaga, Mike Neal and Morgan Burnett were the top three, but he also nabbed Andrew Quarless in the fifth and James Starks in the sixth. Seventh round selection C.J. Wilson played the last couple of seasons with the Oakland Raiders.
