2011 NFL Mock Draft: Green Bay Packers, Rd. 1 Pick 32

We have reached the end of the first ever SB Nation Arizona NFL mock draft. The Green Bay Packers are up with their Lombardi Trophy to show the world whom they select. With the final pick of the first round, they select:

Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio State

Heyward reminds some of Richard Seymour when he was at Georgia playing football in the SEC. Heyward is a guy who would fit in at defensive end in Green Bay's 3-4 scheme. He has a mix of power and speed to get to the quarterback and cause disruptions in the offensive backfield. He has a non-stop motor. This will go right along withClay Matthews. He is also explosive off the line of the scrimmage. He is not without faults, as he will sometimes overrun a running play in pursuit. But all in all, this guy is ready to take people's heads off. That is the type of player you want on your team. 


Tell us what you think of the picks. Who were the good and bad picks? What surprised you and what was just plain dumb? Sound off below!
