In today's Star Tribune, Judd Zulgad and Kevin Seifert had the Packers taking Louisville quarterback Brian Brohm in the first round. They were right - the Packers have drafted Brohm. But they did it in the second round. Not sure why the Packers took another wide receiver with their first of three second-round selections, but the guy they took, Jordy Nelson from Kansas State, was insanely productive last season, catching 122 passes. And they got a needed defensive back named Patrick Lee as well.
As we've seen in recent years, Green Bay G.M. Ted Thompson likes to stockpile guys. It's worked out pretty well. We'll know for sure about these guys in about 2011. And on a side note, I'm proud to report that my afternoon was essentially Kiper-free.
