Driver likes Packers draft


Milwaukee, WISCONSIN    The Packers organized team activities began Monday.

Fans and media are allowed to watch Tuesday's practice.

This is the first time since 1998 that Donald Driver won't be participating in any of the off season activities.

Driver retired in February, but has been keeping an eye on his former team and gave a thumbs up to the Packers recent draft.

"We were struggling on the defensive side, the defensive line, so they made a great choice in getting D. Jones.  I think that's where we were struggling. That's where we couldn't get the pressure to the quarterback, and now I think he will be able to bring that to the Packers. You look at the running back situation, I think we haven't had a solid running back, and I think when they went out there and got (Eddie) Lacy, I think that was a big pick for them, to make sure we were able to fill those holes that were missing," Driver said.
