With the draft looming, we have started a live simulation on Good Packer Nation Morning with the fans making the picks. If you have not gotten your pick in, you can do so here. But one of the things we are not able to do in our simulation is make a trade. A lot of people would like to see the Packers trade, either up or down but in this simulation run on firstpick.com, Thompson trades down (big thanks to Ravuama for introducing me to first pick) and stockpiles picks for later rounds. This is generally the direction Thompson likes…
