It was a big night for Packers fans, Thursday night, as the team gets a new player in the first round of the NFL draft.
Who did Ted Thompson pick in the first round? He went with Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
NBC 15 stopped by Pooley's Bar on the east side of Madison to find out if fans agreed with the choice.
Many were happy to see Clinton-Dix heading to Green Bay, while others hoped Thompson would pick Calvin Pryor, a safety from University of Louisville.
And still others are hoping Thompson will eventually stay a little closer to home. “One thing Ted Thompson has never done in his tenure is taken a Wisconsin player” says Packers fan Ross Schewe.
Football season will be here before you know it. We're just three months until the Packers first preseason game on August 9. The team will take on the Tennessee Titans.
