After finishing the 2011 season with the worst total defense in the NFL, the Green Bay Packers spent the first day of the 2012 NFL Draft adding talent on defense.

The Packers used their fist three picks on pass rusher Nick Perry, defensive tackle Jerel Worthy and cornerback Casey Hayward. It's the firs time they've done that since 2004.

The team continued the trend with their two compensatory picks in the fourth round, choosing defensive tackle Mike Daniels and safety Jerron McMillian. Daniels is a solid athlete for a tackle and similar to Mike Neal, who they picked a couple years ago.

The Packers have five more picks scheduled in the draft. Will any of them be on offense?
