Packers GM Ted Thompson only added one skill position player on offense in this draft. So what does that say about his returning offense? "I think it says more about where the draft was when it was our turn to go," Thompson said. "When it was our turn to go, we felt like we picked the best players available. … If you're sitting in my chair, you're probably going to want to get another offensive lineman and another speed receiver if you can. You want other things, but you can't do everything."
