Packers trade up, again, pick defensive back

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on April 27, 2012 – 8:14 pm

It’ll be remembered as a draft for defense.

The Packers turned to defense for a third consecutive pick in the 2012 NFL Draft by trading back into the bottom of the second round on Friday and selecting Vanderbilt defensive back Casey Hayward.

Hayward, 5-11, 188, was a cornerback at Vanderbilt. He is said to be skilled in zone coverage, which would fit into Defensive Coordinator Dom Capers’ 3-4, zone-blitz defensive scheme.

The Packers gave up their third-round pick, No. 90, and their fifth-rounder, No. 163, to move up to No. 62 near the bottom of the second round to draft Hayward.

Hayward intercepted 13 passes over the last two seasons and finished his college career with 15 picks. He returned one INT for a TD and also had 18 tackles for loss.
