The Packers have traded their first round pick to the Browns for pick 33 in the second round and pick 108 in the fourth round.

General Manager Ted Thompson said he felt the board was strong enough going forward to warrant the trade.

"The board held up pretty strong so we felt pretty good about it," he told reporters after the first round.

When asked if he knows who he will pick tomorrow since he has the first pick, Ted replied, “No. There was lots of things going on at the very end so I would like to look at that board a little bit more right now.”

Thompson said there was a team or two that wanted to trade for the no. 29 pick and the Browns won the bid.

He also said the Packers are willing to trade pick 33, the first pick of the second round.

"You bet, we're taking calls," he said.

 

Fans on Twitter were not happy about the trade.
