2011 NFL Draft Selections (Before Draft Begins)

Packers Draft Needs
OG, OT, OLB, DE
32. Green Bay Packers Select: OT Derek Sherrod
Nice move for the Packers and fantasy football owners with Aaron Rodgers will be happy about this pick. The Packers are still in a small rebuilding phase on the offensive line and they need to keep Rodgers healthy with his concussion problems last season.
Draft Grade: B-
64. Wide Receiver Randall Cobb
Well another weapon for Aaron Rodgers with wide receiver Randall Cobb. This guy needs some time to grow but will help in the kicking game this year.
96. Running Backs Alex Green
They needed more depth at running back so getting Alex Green makes sense. He should duke it out with James Starks for the No.2 back.
131. Cornerback Davon House
141. Tight End D.J. Williams
179. Offensive Lineman Caleb Schlauderaff
186. Linebacker D.J. Smith
197. Defensive Lineman Ricky Elmore
218. Tight End Ryan Taylor
233. Defensive Tackle Lawrence Guy
