2011 NFL Draft Results: Green Bay Packers Select Alex Green

With the 96th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers selected Alex Green, a running back from Hawaii. With Ryan Grant still recovering from an injury sustained in 2010, the Packers are looking for depth in the backfield. Despite winning the Super Bowl, it was clear the run-game was lacking, though Aaron Rodgers more than made up for it at the helm of a prolific passing attack.

The Packers did not, technically, have the final pick of the third round as the Carolina Panthers were awarded a compensatory pick for Julius Peppers.

The third round of the 2011 NFL draft is underway. Day two of the draft will feature the second round with seven minutes between each pick and the third round with five minutes between each pick. Make sure you check out our recap of the first round draft picks, the updated NFL draft order and the second round picks. SB Nation's NFL draft hub and Mocking The Draft will have all NFL draft updates.
