Packer Restricted Free Agent Update

A few restricted free agent tender amounts became known today, apparently as the word leaks out to each player's agent.

The Press-Gazette reported CB Will Blackmon will receive a 4th round tender, CB Tramon Williams a 1st round tender, and RB DeShawn Wynn won't receive a contract offer. Neither Blackmon and Wynn are surprising due to their injury history. I thought Williams might receive a higher tender (a 1st and 3rd round pick if another team signs him) but it's a good draft for defensive backs, so another team might not be that eager to sign him away.

JS Online reported LG Daryn Colledge and C/G Jason Spitz will both receive a 2nd round tender. Spitz should be fully recovered from his back injury next season, so he's a good player to keep. I can't imagine Colledge turning his career at this point. Also, I don't understand why they needed to pay an extra $1 million combined to both players just to give Spitz a 2nd round tender vs. a low tender. A low tender would have given the Packers a 3rd round pick instead of a 2nd round pick if Spitz signed elsewhere. Would another team balk at surrendering a 2nd round pick, but be willing to essentially trade 3rd round pick for Spitz for the same contract price?
