With the 28th overall pick in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers have selected USC Trojans defensive end/outside linebacker Nick Perry. Perry played as a 4-3 defensive end in college and stated previously that he would prefer to continue to play the position, but there's no question that he has the athletic ability to play standing up.

The Green Bay Packers are, beyond any shadow of a doubt, going to use Perry as an outside linebacker. Because of the average production that came from the ROLB position in 2011, he will have the opportunity to win a starting job in training camp from Day 1. Here's the player profile that we did on Perry pre-draft.

Measurables:

40-yard dash - 4.64 seconds

Bench Press - 35 reps

Vertical Jump - 38.5-inch vertical jump

Broad Jump - 124.0 inches

3-cone Drill - 7.25 seconds

Thoughts? Do you guys approve of the pick?
