Packers select CB Patrick Lee

With their third and final pick of the day, the Packers took cornerback Patrick Lee from Auburn with pick #60. He's aggressive in press coverage, has good speed for a corner, and is a big, physical player according to the scouting report. But that same report indicates that he will need some seasoning. He had a good senior year after primarily being a back up until then. Playing behind Woodson and Harris for a year or two should be a plus, obviously.

Mel Kiper said that he liked Lee, and felt that he is a good pick for the Packers.

We'll all need to read up on Lee. So here's his profile.

Remaining Picks

The second day of the 2008 NFL Draft will see the Packers with the following picks (barring trades): #91 (3rd round), #113 (fourth round, acquired in the earlier trade with Jets), #s 128 and 135 (also fourth round), #162 (fifth round), #194 (sixth round), and #237 (seventh round).
