Packers Thinking Safety in the First Round?

PFW says that it wouldn’t be a shock to see the Pack go with a safety with their first round pick:

Team insiders are indicating that it would hardly be a shock if the Packers’ first pick turned out to be a strong safety who could conceivably work his way into the starting lineup right away in place of incumbent Atari Bigby. The word out of Green Bay is that Bigby, a likely restricted free agent due to the increasingly unlikely extension of the league’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, could be on thin ice after a second straight injury-plagued campaign, which ended on a sour note with his shoddy play down the stretch. The player currently behind Bigby on the Packers’ depth chart is Derrick Martin, another likely RFA who has provided an impact on special teams but has otherwise been a nonfactor since being obtained in a trade with the Ravens early last September.

    This really dumb to me, because why draft a saftey in the 1st round, when we already have a proven vet in Nick Collins. I think this will just cause problems with trying to resign Collins. How about getting a OT like Bruce Campbell in the 1st round or the best player on the board.
