The Packers first pick used on a defender is the selection of Davon House, a cornerback out of New Mexico State. House was on the board anywhere from the 2nd to the 4th round, so it looks like Ted got some good value here. A lot of people across the blogs I'm reading today are pressing for Thompson to draft a defensive lineman, and that will happen, but it appears that Thompson is just plucking off who he thinks is the best available, regardless of positions. House will be competing to come in on those nickel and dime packages, and the situations when the Packers throw five cornerbacks on the field. Dom Capers noted that they like the way he covers the field, they like his versatility, and they like his ability to press at the line of scrimmage.
Thompson did have another fourth round pick, but he traded that down. Thompson has made two trades to move down already today, so it's clear to me that they really aren't targeting anyone and just selecting who they like when their time comes.
Speaking of trades, a very interesting one coming between the camps in New England and Philadelphia. Since 2000 when Belichick took over, the teams have made a draft-day swap at least once every season. They extended that streak today by merely just swapping picks #193 and #194, even though those picks were thirty-some slots away when the deal was made. Love a good inside joke between the teams.
