GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The Green Bay Packers have eight picks in next week's NFL draft and some obvious needs even after two straight NFC North titles.
The Packers could use more talent on the offensive line, despite using their 2010 (Bryan Bulaga) and 2011 (Derek Sherrod) first-round draft picks on offensive tackles. And despite drafting Clay Matthews in 2009 and Nick Perry last year, the Packers have only three outside linebackers currently on the roster.
Green Bay also lost three-time Pro Bowl safety Nick Collins and wide receiver Greg Jennings.
General manager Ted Thompson has drafted a true running back only four times in eight drafts, but this could be the year he does so again.
