The 2013 NFL Draft is in the books which means the Green Bay Packers have made all of their selections and we know who will be joining the team in training camp come late July. Our team at ALLGBP.com has done a fantastic job in breaking down each of these players and be sure to check out each and get to know your newest Packer players!
Let’s take a look at this year’s full slate of draft picks:
26th, 26th overall – Datone Jones, DE, UCLA
Many expected this pick if the Packers were staying put in round one. Many say Jones was a great value at 26th overall and should start right away. Helps solidify a position of need.
29th, 61st overall (from 49ers) – Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama
After several draft analysts had Lacy going to the Packers in round one and even before their pick, Green Bay had to be shocked to see him fall into their laps in round two. Touted by many as the best running back in this year’s class, Lacy was the fourth back taken after Giovani Bernard (Bengals), Le’Veon Bell (Steelers) and Montee Ball (Broncos). Clearly the Packers wanted Lacy and he will make an immediate impact to a running game that has lacked punch for the past three seasons.
