GREEN BAY -- The Green Bay Packers added a little local flavor to their team. For the first time in Ted Thompson's 10 years as general manager, he selected a Wisconsin product, drafting Badgers wide receiver/return specialist Jared Abbrederis with the 176th pick of the fifth round Saturday. The pick is a popular one for Wisconsin fans since Abbrederis grew up in Wautoma, less than 100 miles from Green Bay, and walked on to Wisconsin.
