Packers to pick 26th in April's draft

Jan. 14, 2013
 

The Green Bay Packers will have the 26th pick in the upcoming NFL draft.

That was determined following the divisional playoff games last weekend.

The four teams that lost over the weekend would pick 25 through 28. The team with the best record, Denver at 13-3, will pick 28th. Houston (12-4) will pick 27th.

The Packers and Seattle both finished 11-5, but Seattle will pick one spot ahead of the Packers based on strength of schedule. The Packers' strength of schedule (which is the combined opponents winning percentage) was .508 while Seattle's was .504.

The last time the Packers picked 26th in the first round, they took outside linebacker Clay Matthews in 2009. However, they did not originally own that pick. They acquired it in a draft-day trade with New England.

The draft is April 25-27.

As for the other NFC North teams, the Detroit Lions pick fifth, the Chicago Bears pick 20th and the Minnesota Vikings pick 23rd.
