The Packers stayed put for two of their fourth round selections and then traded up with the Denver Broncos to take their second running back of the draft in UCLA's Johnathan Franklin. He joins a pair of offensive linemen, Colorado's David Bakhtiari and Cornell's J.C. Tretter.

I absolutely love OT/C David Bakhtiari COLORADO. I think we'll try him at LT since we also got OG/C JC Tretter CORNELL. Bakhtiari in the 4th is an absolute steal in the 4th and will be a stud for us. I don't know as much about Tretter, but I know he's smart. He was a 6th round projection I think, but it's hard for the media to rank mid-to-late round OL's.

As for RB Johnathan Franklin UCLA, that was a great pick. Lacy, Franklin, and Harris are all different types of RB's, and that's what I love. Our scat back is Harris, Lacy is our pounder, and Franklin is the jack-of-all-trades.

I like Paul's point about Kuhn and I agree. I thought Kyle Juszczyk HARVARD might be the replacement for Kuhn, or even Tommy Bohanon WAKE FOREST, but those guys went too early for us. Lacy, however, can fulfill Kuhn's role.

I also forgot to mention: Please bring Paul back often! The man knows his stuff and I really enjoy listening to him. I didn't know who he was until this podcast but I'm hooked now!
