With their second 5th round pick, the Packers select South Carolina OT Jamon Meredith.
The prototype value pick. We were talking about him in the open thread as an early 4th round pick, NFL Draft Scout projected him in the 2nd round, and he's drafted in the late 5th round. It seems like he's shown good strength at times but plays with poor technique. I'd be surprised if he is in the mix to start in 2009, but his selection probably signals the end of any chance they might resign RT Mark Tauscher.
