Ranking the #1 Picks


This year will mark the 8th year that Ted Thompson has taken over as General Manager of the Green Bay Packers. In the past 7 years, Ted Thompson has made 7 First Round Draft Choices. Since the draft will be on in 2 hours and 7 minutes, but who is counting let take this time to rank (in your opinion) his #1 Round picks. They are:

2005: Aaron Rodgers, QB, California
2006: AJ Hawk, LB, Ohio State
2007: Justin Harrell, DT, Tennessee
2008: No 1st Rounder (But we traded pick away to get Jordy Nelson, rank him in there if you wish)
2009: BJ Raji, DT, Boston College
2009: Clay Matthews, LB, USC
2010: Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa
2011: Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi St.

Mine

#1 Aaron Rodgers - MVP, no doubt has to be at top of this list.
#2 Clay Matthews - Face of the franchise, on the defensive side, for the future.
#3 AJ Hawk - Defensive captain and that alone is reason he is #3. Wasn't worth a 1st Round, but has been solid ever since.
#4 BJ Raji - Love this guy and his intensity. Does better with rushers around him.
#5 Bryan Bulaga - The progress from year 1 to year 2 was a huge jump, especially in short offeason.
#6 Derek Sherrod - One year in and beating out Harrell. Like that was hard.
#7 Justin Harrell - Big...big...big mistake.
