After months of intense waiting and wild speculation, the 2016 NFL Draft has now come and gone.
As with every year, we got to see some picks we expected (Jared Goff to the Rams with the first pick, Carson Wentz following right behind him at #2 for the Eagles), some guys take a precipitous fall (Myles Jack dropping out of the first round), and something we never fathomed we would see (the entire situation revolving around Laremy Tunsil).
The Green Bay Packers found themselves coming into the draft with possibly the shortest list of needs for any team — the kind where even if the team didn’t really fill them, they still would probably have a good shot of doing well. Still, there were issues worth considering on the roster, and had they gone unaddressed, the team would be leaving themselves with known vulnerabilities that have proven to be exploitable.
Of course, despite the worries from plenty of us on the outside of the organization, Ted Thompson did what he always does, adding what looks to be a new handful of youthful talents that will hopefully help bring the roster to a higher level, both in the short- and long-term for the franchise.
What exactly do each of these new guys bring to the table? What might they become?
Let’s take a look.
