The Green Bay Packers entered the 2016 NFL Draft with nine selections: their original pick in each round plus a pair of fourth-round compensatory selections. When all was said and done, General Manager Ted Thompson made one trade, which swapped three picks for one, and left the Packers with seven selections overall.
The trends in the picks this year are easy to see, however. Four of the first five picks were used on players on the defensive front seven - two linemen and two linebackers. Of the three offensive players selected, two are linemen who will provide valuable depth and may eventually have an opportunity to move into starting roles if the Packers are unable to re-sign a few of their free agents-to-be.
The other trend is conference-related. Although past results have suggested that the Packers do not significantly favor any particular college football conference over another, four this year's seven picks came from the Pac-12, with two more coming from the Big Ten.
