GREEN BAY WI- NOVEMBER 06 Green Bay Packers Offensive Guard T.J. Lang in action during an NFL football game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Green Bay Packers

This year if Thompson doesn't pick a cornerback or linebacker with the first pick, then the Packers are likely to have another average draft that won't help any of their biggest needs. Pro Bowl guard Josh Sitton was cut in 2016 due to a contract standoff. Lang joined the Detroit Lions on a three-year deal, returning to his home town and leaving Green Bay grasping for answers on the offensive line.

Lang, who was probably the Packers' best blocker and certainly one of their most inspirational leaders, is an especially bitter departure. The sting on the ever-increasing salary cap, which has leaped $44 million in the last four years, really wouldn't be that severe.

It is also expected that the first stage of the deal would end by the liberation of 750 prisoners from the Syrian regime prisons. The group was kidnapped December 16, 2015 from a desert hunting camp in southern Iraq by dozens of armed men in pickup trucks.

Yet even that has started to become a problem for the Green Bay Packers. "I'm just looking forward to being a champion again".

But now, he's on his way to Green Bay to protect Aaron Rodgers. "Obviously Gunter gave us the most consistent play in his time, and he deserves a lot of credit for that". Hopefully, they do this in the first two rounds. The Packers' obvious needs are on defense, but Thompson has struggled far more on that side of the ball on draft day. Running back isn't the top need, but value might win out over need here if Cook is on the board, giving Green Bay a much needed upgrade in the backfield. That could leave Green Bay to choose from among the University of Wisconsin's T.J. Watt, UCLA's Takk McKinley, Michigan's Taco Charlton, Kansas State's Jordan Willis, Houston's Tyus Bowser and Auburn's Carl Lawson. They lost starting guard T.J.
