Thompson's thoughts on Day 2 of NFL Draft

Apr. 26, 2013
 

Ted Thompson spoke to the media following the conclusion of the second day of the NFL Draft on Friday. Here are some highlights from that interview:

*Packers and fans have been lucky to have Aaron Rodgers to do the job he has done following the legend Brett Favre.

*Really glad Rodgers contract worked out. Aaron very fine QB and leader.

*it's just numbers when trading with 49ers. You're trusting your own scouting department.

*Function of board when trading either up or down.

*If you feel good about trading down and being comfortable you will get players later, so what if you're on short end of value chart?

*Felt good about taking Lacy, had several players we felt good about when trading down in Round 2.

*Lacy is big, powerful, he's got a great lateral cut, spin move, played at high level, good kid.

*We felt like board held together really good. Came in hoping to add some picks.

*It just happenstance the way itís worked out. When I was in Seattle we drafted Shaun Alexander late in the first round.
