Before the Green Bay Packers went on the clock with the 29th selection in the 2017 NFL Draft, they elected not to use their pick at the end of round one. Instead, the Packers have chosen to trade back a few spots, and fans will have to wait until tomorrow to see who the newest Packers players will be.
The Packers moved back four slots to the 33rd overall selection after the trade with the Cleveland Browns. In exchange, they added the following additional picks to their haul in this year’s draft:
- Round 2, pick 1 (#33 overall)
- Round 4, pick 1 (#108 overall)
This marks just the second time in Ted Thompson’s tenure as Packers GM that the team has not made a pick in round one. They also traded back out of the first in 2008, when they moved back from #30 to #36. With the 36th pick that year, they selected Kansas State wide receiver Jordy Nelson, a draft choice that has worked out pretty well for the team.

Get ready early on Friday evening, however, as the Packers will be first up in tomorrow’s second round.
