Stedman Bailey (USA Today Sports)

In a bizarre day at Lambeau Field, Ted Thompson added four picks to give himself 10 shots at hitting the lottery on Saturday. He also "lost" on his three trades and made two deals with rival San Francisco, which took four players in the first three rounds compared to the Packers' two.

Green Bay Packers general manager accumulated draft picks as if he were hoping to be profiled on the A&E program, "Hoarders." On Friday, Thompson turned his pre-draft allotment of eight picks into 12, giving himself 10 swings of the bat in Rounds 3 through 7 on Saturday. The turning-water-into-wine part will have to come on Saturday. Thompson might come across as Mr. Vanilla but on Draft Weekend... Recommended Stories
