Another first-round OT for Packers?
By Tim Kavanagh
The Green Bay Packers have had some good luck recently by using a first-round draft pick on an offensive tackle -- Bryan Bulaga looks like a solid foundation at the RT spot -- and some bad luck -- a string of injuries has short-circuited the development of Derek Sherrod. So with the No. 26 overall pick, will Green Bay be adding another first-round OT to their mix?
Tyler Dunne of the Journal Sentinel says it's too early to close the door on that possibility. While Luke Joeckel and Eric Fisher will likely be long-gone by the time the Packers' pick rolls around, prospects such as Lane Johnson, D.J. Fluker and Justin Pugh may still be on the board. Though none of them is a perfect prospect at the position, they would have a chance to make an impact early. Stay tuned.
