MILWAUKEE -- For some NFL teams, the fan base looks at the NFL draft as an equivalent to the Super Bowl. For the Green Bay Packers, it's a way to improve the team to get to the Super Bowl.
The Packers have needs at safety, linebacker, tight end, and center.
Safety makes sense, since the team lost two players to free agency.
Jermichael Finley is gone. His injury from last year might prevent him from playing ever again. That makes the tight end position a need for the Packers.
General Manager Ted Thompson doesn't always draft for need, sometimes he'll take the best player available.
The Packers own the 21st pick in the NFL draft. The draft starts tonight at 7 o'clock.
