PFT: Packers Looking to Trade Down?

by has a post claiming, without any sourcing, that the Packers are looking to trade down for more picks.   Credible?  Perhaps, though PFT’s lack of sourcing and passive formulation — “the Packers are believed” — don’t give much reason to believe it’s anything more than idle speculation.  Insightful?  Not really.  Ted Thompson always looks to obtain more picks.

Still, let’s assume it’s true.  I think it’s smart.  Ted Thompson has proven himself to be a first-class talent evaluator (we’ll wait and see on Justin Harrell) and this is a deep draft.  So get more picks.  The difference between the #30 overall and, say, the #45 overall is minimal and picking up a few extra shots at getting lucky makes sense.
