Thompson expects the unexpected during Draft

Posted: Updated:
 Green Bay, WI (WXOW)  The Green Bay Packers front office and coaching is thinking about the draft.
    The board is set.
    So is the first round, which is Thursday night.  

The Packers have the 30th pick.
    By now, months and months of preparation are basically done.
    Much like the fans, the Packers will be watching most of the first round unfold before it comes to their turn.
    When you lick that late you need to be ready for anything. 

"The beauty of this particular business is the uncertainty.  There's always that gasp when a name is called when they go 'he picked who?'  You hope that you don't do that so that other teams go 'who did Thompson pick?'  You don't want that kind of criticism," Packers General Manager Ted Thompson said.   

Rounds two and three are Friday evening with the NFL Draft wrapping up Saturday with rounds 4-7. 

The Packers have 9 picks total.
