Ted Thompson traded up for a second pick in the second round on Friday night, giving up the Green Bay Packers'third and fifth round picks for the New England Patriots' second round pick, number 62 overall. With the 62nd pick, Green Bay selected cornerback Casey Hayward from Vanderbilt.

Thompson addressed the defensive problems from 2011 by addressing a different unit from his first two picks. Hayward will likely compete for a spot in the secondary rotation, and should contribute on special teams. Hayward stands 5'11" and weights 185 pounds. He shows good speed and quickness in the secondary and is good in zone coverage -- it's possible that Hayward could be seen as a candidate for a move to free safety.
