johnathan franklin 2Counting draft picks and undrafted free agents, the Packers added 23 players to the roster since Thursday. We had all the information about each and every one of the Packers’ newest players, and for your convenience, we’ve lumped the weekend’s worth of information together here. Say hello to the 2013 Draft Class and their UDFA counterparts!

First, there’s Datone Jones, the Packers’ first round pick.

And Eddie Lacy, the sledgehammer running back picked in the second round.

After trading back through the  third round, the Packers added two offensive linemen, another running back, and a linebacker in the fourth.

Three more defensive players joined the team in the fifth and sixth rounds.

Finally, the Packers added two wide receivers and another linebacker in the seventh round.

After the draft was all said and done, the Packers signed a dozen undrafted free agents and offered tryouts to two more.

Here’s a photo gallery of all the newest Packers. Best of luck to each of them as they try to make the 2013 roster!
