Raiders Acquire OLB Kamerion Wimbley From The Browns

LB Kamerion Wimbley had 11 sacks in his 2006 rookie season. He hasn't reached that level again, but he did have 6.5 sacks last season. At age 26, he's a young outside linebacker who has shown the ability to rush the passer. He sounds like someone the Green Bay Packers should have been interested in. Instead the Browns traded him to the Raiders for a late 3rd round pick. From ESPN's Bill Williamson:

He is not a bad player, but he may not be an ascending player, either. Wimbley has to show he can still improve. He will have to transition from the 3-4 that Cleveland ran to the 4-3 in Oakland. He is supposed to play outside linebacker, but he could also possibly play defensive end. 

Is he someone the Packers should have traded for? Or is Wimbley an overrated player they should have avoided?
