The 2013 NFL Draft: Packers At No. 26 Overall

The 2012 NFL season continues on for a couple more weeks, but obviously it's over for the Green Bay Packers. Having said that, I started following the college scouting news:
The East-West Shrine Game is happening this weekend and I'm sure the Packers' will have their scouts in attendance for the game and this week's practices. Maybe GM Ted Thompson too. It's too hard to read the tea leaves on who the Packers are really interested, but there's no doubt that players help or hurt themselves in these all-star games.

I also read my first 2013 mock draft in a while. Currently it's Alabama C Barrett Jones as one option and Georgia LB Alec Ogletree as another. There isn't a glaring this year for the Packers, but they really need to find players who can push the returning starters on the offensive line and the defensive front seven, so both Jones and Ogletree fit that requirement.

Any initial draft thoughts?
