I'm almost leaning toward Ted Thompson trading down in the draft and gaining an extra lower round pick as long as we get in the top 40.
I would assume doing so would add an additional low 3rd round pick. I am guessing trading #26 for say #37 would require that team giving up their 3rd round pick.

I say this because on about any mock I see there are plenty of good players that would be there at #33 to #39 and adding a low 3rd round pick would give Ted 4 players between rounds 2 and 3.
I would love to see an OL, DL, Safety, and RB used for these picks and can see several pretty darn good players that would be around.

It seems like we can't keep our 1st round guys on the field (Perry, Sherrod, Bulaga) so maybe Ted Thompson should just bypass that round. It also makes sense in that this would be capitalizing on a deep draft.

Don't know who the trade partner for Ted would be but with all these veteran QB signings maybe one would jump in for one at #26 that wouldn't go earlier with an experienced QB on the team.

You might get your wish Warhawk if one of those quarterback desperate teams wants to trade up. None of the 2013 quarterbacks are worthy of a top twenty pick, but there may be a run on them in the late twenties.

I put this guy in FA signing, fighting for roster spot category. Depending on what Ted does in draft, there just may be room for him on the 53 man roster.

The Green Bay Packers signed free-agent TE Matthew Mulligan (Rams) to a one-year contract Sunday, April 7, his agent confirmed.

Evan Dietrich Smith sign his free agent tender, will go into camp as starting C.

Most have predicted that Ted will look for a C in the draft, only if he drafts one within the 1st 2 rounds do I see any camp competition for EDS.

He probably should have started from day 1 last year, but that is ancient history, hopefully Mike & co. plug 5 guys in early, keep them together, and hope for no major injuries.

We can get by with EDS, but he's nothing special. He's a great backup for the interior line.

I think Van Roten would be backing him up, no? This is a position at which we could use an upgrade.

Not gonna put this guy on the 53 man roster, will put him in the "fighting for a job" category. Probably best scenario is he shows enough to make the practice squad.

Draft Day right around the corner, Ted has been who most everyone predicted he would be, sticking to his guns of not spending big money on FA's.

I'm gonna enjoy Thursday night, I'm guessing Ted won't make any big move up, but damn it would be exciting to see that Packer Logo go up on the screen, and The Commish announcing "we have a trade".

Packers release Brandon Saine, that opens up another spot on my original 53 man roster.

Weird. Thought he could play.

Well D.J. Smith is gone also. Looks to be plenty of room for draft picks and UDFA's.

Wonder if Ted will trade out of 1st rnd if someone calls wanting to jump back in?

This couod be one of the more interesting draft weekends.

My roster is currently at 48, (4 sp tm, 22 OF, 22 D) but that includes 2 kickers, so it is actually at 47 , that leaves 6 spots up for grab, and of course there will be TC injuries that will effect the final 53man roster.
