For the fifth straight season, the Green Bay Packers will pick in the bottom half of the first round in the upcoming draft. But at No. 21 overall, it’s their highest selection since picking No. 9 in 2009.

General manager Ted Thompson almost certainly has to concentrate on the defensive side of the ball again despite using his first-round picks in 2012 and 2013 on outside linebacker Nick Perry and defensive end Datone Jones, respectively.

The Packers have needs up the middle of their defense on all three levels.
