Packers general manager Ted Thompson on first-round draft choice Ha Ha Clinton-Dix:

*Think he has very good ball skills.

*It fit very well for us filling need and having best player available. We felt he was best player on board.

*We thought there was chance he would be available.

*He plays game well. He's faster then some 40 times suggest.

*We think he's got very good upside, Had great coaching.

*I'm turning into Ozzie Newsome, drafting all Alabama guys.

*He's going to have to learn the ropes, do all things rookies do.

*It didn't alarm me that safeties had no interceptions last season.

*We talked about whole thing, what is contribution to entire team. We'll talk about that tomorrow and next day with all players.

*We talked to a number of teams about trade possibilities.
