Draft Reaction: Green Bay selects OLB Nick Perry

Here’s what I said as soon as this pick came in: Green Bay is really good at this draft thing.

There was certainly a level of luck involved here.  The Packers’ stated goal for the top of this draft was to land a pass rusher to come off the edge opposite Clay Matthews.  They not only did that, they got the best pass rusher on my board, and a guy who I gave a top ten grade to.  This could not have fallen any better for the Green Bay Packers.

They don’t have a complete defense, but the foundation of Clay Matthews and Nick Perry gives them as good a foundation as any team in the NFC North has on that side of the ball, including the Bears (Peppers/McClellin) and Vikings (Allen/Ray Edwards).  They’ll be able to build up the rest of it over the next two years.
