UCLA Pro Day Features Akeem Ayers and Rahim Moore

UPDATE: Via the Press-Gazette, GM Ted Thompson attended the UCLA pro day. Obviously he wanted to see someone for himself, though I'm sure this is a nice time of year to have an excuse to visit Southern California. 

Over the last week, I've lost interest in having the Green Bay Packers add an outside linebacker in the draft. Though I'm not exactly sure which position they should target, so outside linebacker is still a position I'm considering.

One possibility is UCLA LB Akeem Ayers, who is projected as the Packers target in some mock drafts despite a poor showing at the NFL combine. He might have overcome some of those concerns with a strong showing at the UCLA pro day.

His teammate, FS Rahim Moore, sounds like an interesting prospect as a 2nd round pick, who could even last into the 3rd round since safeties tend to be a little undervalued. From Bucky Brooks:

Moore moves effortlessly in his turns and transitions, and he flashed excellent ball skills and hands. He looks like a true centerfield-type safety with the skills to develop into a ball hawk at the next level. The only concern that surfaced was a lack of conditioning that resulted in Moore cutting the workout short.

He'd be duplicating what the Packers already have with SS Morgan Burnett, and he'd play behind starting SS Charlie Peprah in the short term, but I don't see a downside in having another defensive back that's good at grabbing interceptions. Maybe he could replace CB Jarrett Bush!
