GREEN BAY -

Ted Thompson is happy to have Julius Peppers in the fold.

The Packers general manager says signing the eight-time Pro Bowl defensive end won't have an effect on what Green Bay does with its nine selections in next week's NFL draft. The first pick is at No. 21 overall.

The team's most immediate needs appear to be at safety, linebacker, tight end, offensive line and cornerback. Thompson says the Packers simply try to draft the best player available.
