At No. 187, It's CB Brandon Underwood

With the second of their two 6th round picks, the Packers select Cincinnati CB Brandon Underwood.

I called him a cornerback above, but he projects as an NFL safety. He's tall (6'1") which seems to be a preference for GM Ted Thompson. Two years ago, Thompson drafted 6'4" S Aaron Rouse. Just like Rouse, Underwood's coverage skills have come into question, but he's got good range and is a good tackler.

The Packers top three safeties last season all missed time or were knocked out of games with injuries. The situation forced CB Charles Woodson to move over to safety for a couple games. Underwood won't move ahead of the top three safeties currently on the roster, but he adds depth to a position that needed it.
