With the 230th pickin the 2010 NFL Draft the Packers COULD HAVE taken...

Green Bay Packers General Manager Ted Thompson is a firm believer in drafting the best player available. As result, if I was the General Manager of the Green Bay Packers and employing the best player available approach, instead of drafting C.J. Wilson (DE, East Carolina) with the 230th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, here are some players I would have considered drafting:

Selvish Capers (OT, West Virginia), who went #231 to the Washington Redskins. At 6'4" and 300 pounds, this developmental tackle was probably the best player available in the 6th round, so he becomes a steal at the end of the 7th round. Capers is raw but had a chance to replace Mark Tauscher at right tackle in 2011. For those of you that forget, Tasucher is a former 7th round pick by the Packers in 2000 that was very raw coming out of Wisconsin but has held down the right tackle position ever since (besides sitting out unsigned the first part of 2009 with a knee injury).

Brandon Banks (RS, Kansas State), who went undrafted. Again if you look back at previous posts, I can't advocate enough for the Packers to get a dedicated return specialist. At the very least take a few chances on guys like Holliday or Banks. If none of them work out, no big deal but at least go down trying.
