04/29/12 - Green Bay closed the draft with a pair of seventh-round compensatory picks, which couldn't be traded. The selection of Florida State offensive tackle Andrew Datko (No. 241) snapped the Packers' unprecedented streak of taking defensive players with their first six picks in this year's draft. Green Bay concluded its draft two picks later by taking Tennessee-Chattanooga quarterback B.J. Coleman. Defensive coordinator Dom Capers didn't mind the run on players to add to his unit. Last year, Capers watched Thompson go exclusively with offense (three players) the first two days of the draft and take only one defensive player in Green Bay's first six picks. "It just tells you, that patience is a virtue," Capers said. "Last year was a long draft, all right, so this year's been obviously, I think, a good, productive draft for us in terms of being able to get players at all three levels of our defense." Head coach Mike McCarthy, the play caller for the offense, was OK with all but the final moments of this year's draft being devoted to the defense. The Packers don't have any glaring holes with their explosive offense, having replaced departed Pro Bowl center Scott Wells with veteran free agent Jeff Saturday early in the offseason. "For Ted to trade up three times in one draft was fun," McCarthy said. "It was fun to sit next to him and watch him growl through it. It was important to trust your board." Since the league merger in 1970, the most consecutive defensive players the Packers selected at the outset of a draft was four - in 1984, 1999 and 2003. - The Sports Xchange
