Packers trade up to #26

The Packers traded up -- yes, up! -- with New England to take the #26 pick overall. And with that pick they chose Clay Matthews, outside linebacker from USC.

Great addition!

Trade details are as follows: the Packers sent picks 41, 73, and 83 to New England for picks 26 and 162.

This means the Packers traded their one second and two third-round picks to move up to get Matthews. The Packers next pick, barring trades, is #109 in tomorrow's fourth round.
