Analysis:

The Packers added Nick Perry this past year, but if a pass rusher like Ansah falls to them they shouldn’t hesitate to add him as well. Perry missed much of last year with an injury, and while he’s expected back, it is clear you can’t have enough pass rushers in this league. Adding Ogletree in the 2nd round gives them a young athletic ILB who can run with tight ends. He may not start as a rookie, but should contribute. Ellington in the third round is a key pick as something needs to be done to jump start the Packers rushing attack. Green Bay should try to be more balanced in general, but Ellington also gives them a guy with speed to be used as a weapon out of the backfield in the passing game. Later the Packers should focus on depth throughout the draft, though a 2nd running back could be intriguing as well.
