The Green Bay Packers draft haul for 2015 may seem a bit confusing to some. In round one, their selection of safety, Damarious Randall, is considered a reach by some.
The NFC North may be the toughest division in football when it comes to defending big-arm quarterbacks, and the Packers have made it clear that their selection of Randall was purely for the purpose of locking down a nickel corner, but history tells us that it is rare that a collegiate safety is capable of making the transition to cornerback in the NFL.

The noted difficulty of such a transition may be the very reason that the Packers decided to double-dip at the position, also selecting Quinton Rollins in round two.
In round three, the Pack took accomplished return man, Ty Montgomery. In the fourth they took former UCLA signal caller Brett Hundley. Both of these young men could reap the benefits of learning under Aaron Rodgers early in their career’s.
In the later rounds Green Bay chose linebacker, Jake Ryan, formerly of the University of Michigan.
