Continued: A look at NFC North teams entering the draft

Needs: Free safety, tight end, another pass rusher, inside linebacker, receiver, offensive line.

Will the Packers trade at No. 21? Unlikely. But no one blows up a reporter’s mock draft more consistently than GM Ted Thompson.

What are they thinking? Other than, “Please, please, please make sure Aaron Rodgers stays healthy,” they’re worried about the back end of their defense. If safeties Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Calvin Pryor already are taken, which is a strong possibility, the Packers could turn to their inside linebackers, where they need to replace Brad Jones as a starter and supply speed alongside A.J. Hawk.

The pick: Ryan Shazier, ILB, Ohio State.
