Draft Result

Drafted in the 2011 Draft by the Green Bay Packers in the 1st round with the #32 pick.
The Packers spent a first-round selection in 2010 on Bryan Bulaga, and address the offensive line once again here in 2011. Sherrod is a versatile lineman with good feet that could play a couple of different positions for them in the long run. This pick goes a long way towards keeping Aaron Rodgers off his back.
