Packers wind up draft with a QB, WR and trade

The Packers wound up their 2008 draft by taking another QB and WR, and then trading their final pick in the seventh round for a sixth rounder next year.

With the 209th pick overall, the Packers took QB Matt Flynn from LSU. And with the 217th pick in the draft, the Pack brought a Brett back to Green Bay. No, not the Brett. Brett Swain, a wide receiver from San Diego State.

GM Ted Thompson finished the draft as he began it: with a trade. He traded the 237th pick to New Orleans for a sixth round pick next year.
