Protection Mode - Green Bay Packers Draft Analysis

I think the Packers best draft pick this year was Derek Sherrod (offensive tackle Mississippi State) at pick number 32 in the first round. I'll have to agree that it may not have been the most exciting pick. It's always more exciting when your team picks ball handling positions such as quarterback, running back, or wide receiver, but after Ingram went to New Orleans, there wasn't that "sure thing" impact player left. What Sherrod will do is protect that "sure thing" impact player Green Bay already has in Aaron Rodgers.


After suffering from two concussions last year, the Packers need to make sure to protect Rodgers. They need to make sure Rodgers stays on the field for many more years and has the opportunity to repeat in becoming the Super Bowl MVP again.


The NFC North is tough. Since the Packers play their division rivals twice each season, they have Julius Peppers, Jared Allen, Ndamukong Suh, and now Nick Fairley all coming for Rodgers on every play. It's for that reason that I think Sherrod was the best pick the Packers made in the draft.
