How will the Packers’ draft picks contribute in 2011?
The makeup of the Packers’ 2011 roster could look very different than it does right now, considering that the NFL lockout has halted free agency to this point. Players such as defensive end Cullen Jenkins, wide receiver James Jones, and running back Brandon Jackson still do not know whether they will be wearing a Green Bay jersey on Opening Night.
So for now, we can only project what the ten Packers’ 2011 draft picks will do this season. Here’s a look.
Derek Sherrod, LT: Chad Clifton rebounded nicely in 2010 and was selected as an alternate to the Pro Bowl, and it looks as though he will be back protecting Aaron Rodgers’ blindside again this season. If the Packers truly believe Sherrod can be the left tackle of the future, then Bryan Bulaga will stay at right tackle and Sherrod will learn for a year under Clifton.
Randall Cobb, WR:
