The Green Bay Packers made another surprising pick in the second round of the NFL Draft by taking RB AJ Dillon from Boston College with the 62nd overall pick.

Many thought that the Packers would address their need at WR after selecting QB Jordan Love in the first round.  Instead, they add to their depth at running back along with Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams.  

Dillon played three seasons at Boston College.  In 35 games, Dillon accumulated 4,382 rushing yards and 38 touchdowns.  Dillon does not thrive in the passing game.  He only recorded 21 receptions and 236 receiving yards during his tenure at Boston College.
