Packers awarded 5th round compensatory pick in 2013 NFL Draft

Posted by Duke Bobber on March 18, 2013 – 7:35 pm

GM Ted Thompson and Head Coach Mike McCarthy

The NFL announced Monday that the Green Bay Packers have been awarded a 5th round compensatory choice in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks. The number of picks a team receives equals the net loss of compensatory free agents up to a maximum of four.

The Packers lost QB Matt Flynn and C Scott Wells in free agency in 2012. Green Bay signed C Jeff Saturday.

The compensatory choices announced today will supplement the 222 choices in the seven rounds of the 2013 NFL Draft (April 25-27), which will kick off in primetime for the fourth consecutive year.

Here is the Packers’ compensatory selection:
Round 5, pick 34 (#167 overall)

    Another draft choice and it is lower choice,so here we go again in getting another good draft choice! This is always a good thing because e don’t have to play these lower draft choices the money that FA’s demand!
    Go Pack Go!

    I just wish I understood the process. Honestly, it seems like the Packers get duped every year with these picks, but, I have no idea. Maybe they get lucky, and I am too stupid to know it!

    GB has done a phenominal job with trades, free agent personnel, best available player draft choices and player development for years. I don’t think a beat has been missed from the Ron Wolfe days, through Ted Thompson.

    Looks like another reason not to sign Free Agents. Let them go and get more picks!!

    great now we can select a WR with this pick to help replace greg jennings

    Should have been a 4th round pick. I guess because Flynn did not play and Wells was hurt all year it pushed back the pick?

    Falcons received four, Niners got three and Seahawks got two. Ain’t nothing easy in the NFC the next few years.

    Just imagination if Ray Romano came to your school almost every day of your life and now imaginatron how much that would change the game in the clouds, and looking down.

    If the Packers don’t get rid of Dom Capers, then
    all selections are meaningless.

    they need to start picking up free agents. Honestly we have a lot of holes to fill in. wr, def, rb.

    If you think the Packers are going join the free agency madness you are following the wrong team. Draft and develop. Draft and develop with a FA possibly sprinkled in here and there. They will do it whether or not the fans like it. They have gone 11-5, 10-6 (Superbowl), 15-1 and 11-5. I’m pretty sure they know better than anybody on here and have a plan to fill the voids. They are Superbowl contenders every year and have a few of the biggest contracts in the league coming up over the next couple seasons (Rodgers & Matthews). Cap space is needed. Trust the system at least until you see the bottom kicking out.

    We have been in a D rebuild for five years and still can’t install a tackling system from one year to the next.

    Give Capers a break. the guy got a couple big picks as a signing gift. Raji/Mathews were essentials for a 3-4 anyways. Since then he’s lost key defensive players every year. Til we got a bunch of injuries and didnt even have the personel to put a defense on the field. We draft all defense last year and the top two picks end on IR. House hurt. Neal hurt. Losing Bishop hurt more than we expected. Smith wouldve been a great suprise but he went down 1st game. Collins gone for real. Woodson changing roles and becoming less impactful… Like I said. Give the guy some players and see how the defense does IMO.

    I see us getting weker every year. We havn’t picked up a top player in some time. Cobb is becoming a respectable player, a real threat…….but we still need a kicker, Running Back, O line, D line………we loose more star players every year that we get.

    I have this fear of the Pack turing into that lame team Favre had to play with after he won the SB.

    Managers (coaches) are paid to plan for player turn over and injury.It’s called risk management.Like big Tuna says you are what you recored says you are.

    What’s wrong with picking up a free agent from time to time? It doesn’t interfear with our ability to draft and develop. You can do both.

    Capers took SIX of last years seven draft picks……what did we get, worst D in the NFL.

    hey yu guys need to improve on the running game and the offense line. yu guys got alot of shoes to fill with greg jennings going to the vikings and yu need to pick up bradshaw from the giants. he benson harris grant and gett rid of starks and get a good runn back system going. yu guys need to get the offense line figured out and the running game. look i would focuse on a widereciever and some improvements on the offense line and a good draft pick for the defense

  22. By greg shoop on Mar 26, 2013 | Reply

    work on the offense line and pick up a good receiver to replace greg jennings and a guy to replace woodson

    Let’s hope the Pack drafts a good inside LB to replace AJ (pile-jumper after a 5 yard gain) Hawk. Ray Nitchske must roll-over in his grave every Sunday during the fall.
