Packers Draft Notes - Updated

A white wide receiver? Is Jordy Nelson another Bill Schroeder, but without the track star speed?

From 1993 to 2007, with Mr. Favre as their starting QB, the Packers picked a total of seven skill-position offensive players in the first two draft rounds. An average of less than one-half per year. In 2008, the first year in 15 without Favre around, they chose two skill-position offensive players in the first two rounds. Yeah Brett, we wanted you back.

Ryan Brohm, I mean Brian Braun, more proof that star players should never stick around for that senior year.


In 2008, three skill-position offensive players were picked in the Packers' first four selections, that's 75%. In the previous 15 seasons under Brett, just 15 skilled-offensive players in the first 4 picks, a mere 25%.
