Green Bay Packers Select Derek Sherrod With 32nd Overall Pick

With the 32nd pick, and final selection in the first round, the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers selected Mississippi State offensive tackle Derek Sherrod.

Chad Clifton is up there in age and Bryan Bulaga has been tabbed as one replacement. Given how incredible Aaron Rodgers is, the Packers had better do everything possible to keep him upright and healthy. Sherrod is SEC tested and a guy with high intelligence and good feet. He needs to get a bit stronger and learn how to properly use his hands, but he can give Rodgers the protection he needs to rack up some more Super Bowl wins. It's not a steal per se, but this is a nice pick for the Packers who have the young talent to win more Super Bowls.

About four hours later, the first round is over. Thanks to those who have stuck with this thread all night. Stay tuned to SB Nation Houston for a recap of round one's winners and losers, more in-depth analysis of the Houston Texans selection of Wisconsin defensive end J.J. Watt, and the rest of the weekend's draft action.
