And there we have it, Ted Thompson's 2011 NFL draft is in the books.

And it was a good one as well.

3 future starters in Sherrod, Cobb, House and some good depth in Green, Elmore and DJ Williams

And TT back to his "typical" Ted Draft, which is having double digit picks. If 50% of picks make the team at year three, that means TT has been getting 5 or 6 players on the roster versus the 2 or 3 players other teams get from the draft. This takes into account injuries, roster competition, trades and whatever else.

Just updated this with the recent free agent moves, when you look back we only have 2 players left from Thompson's 1st draft class with the Packers. On the bright side, both those players are top 5 at their position.

Ironically from Thomson's 2nd draft class, we'll soon have only 2 players left as well in Hawk and Jennings.

2007 was Thompson's worst draft class, luckily he landed 2 gems in the 6th round who both received extention in the past year.

Mostly though he's failed to hit on his top picks other than Aaron Rodgers.
These are two of Thompson's best attributes. Sure he has missed on a few of the top picks but he's gotten good depth in almost every draft and that really helps down the stretch.

Furthermore, being able to admit a mistake and fix it, is a big plus. If a player has shown promise by 2-3 years - cut or bench him. I feel as though, in the Sherman days, we held on to a lot of players who we should have cut or benched.

We seem to add 1-2 major impact probowl players a year and a bunch of solid players. Of all the players no longer with us most have found roles on other teams. Overall pretty impressive.
