Johnathan Franklin, running back, UCLA

Here's another great value pick for Green Bay, as Franklin was often projected as a day-two pick. With him and Eddie Lacy coming aboard, this almost certainly is a sign that the stable of running backs on the Packers' roster will be going through some major changes this off-season.

Here are the terms of the trade:

Green Bay receives:

Pick 125 (Johnathan Franklin)

Denver receives:

Picks 146 (5th round, #13) and 173 (6th round, #5)

Here are the Packers' draft picks:

Round Pick # Overall Selection
1 26 26 Datone Jones, DE, UCLA
2 29 61 Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama
4 12 109 David Bakhtiari, T, Colorado
4 25 122 J.C. Tretter, G/T, Cornell
4 28 125 Johnathan Franklin, RB, UCLA
