Packers make two more draft picks

A day after raising eyebrows by taking a quarterback in the first round, the Green Bay Packers surprised again on Friday night. For their second-round pick, the green and gold took running back A.J. Dillon out of Boston College. The 6’0”, 250-pound running back racked up over 4,000 yards as an Eagle in three collegiate seasons. Of course, the Packers had a 1,000-yard rusher last season in Aaron Jones, so it will be interesting to see how the two backs are used to complement each other. Outside of an MCL sprain in Week 15, Jones was relatively healthy as he got over 100 additional carries compared to the previous season.

In the third round, the Packers addressed a need that has been a topic of conversation all offseason. They selected tight end Josiah Deguara from the University of Cincinnati.
