While he might have been a bit of a confusing pick at first, former Boston College running back AJ Dillon clearly caught the eye of Green Bay Packers GM Brian Gutekunst, and he is expected to be a contributor for LaFleur's offense for years to come.

The Packers agreed to terms with their second-round pick, as the iron-headed runner has officially swapped northeast Massachusetts for frigid Wisconsin.

Dillon ran for at least 1,100 yards an 10 touchdowns in each of his three seasons in Chestnut Hill, as his bludgeoning style of play set the tone for Steve Addazio's offenses.

Dillon might not see a ton of playing time in 2020, as he will be a backup behind Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams, but his talent makes it clear as to why Green Bay used such a high pick on him. Despite running with incredible power at 245 pounds, Dillon has enough elusiveness and straight-line speed to handle an NFL workload.

Dillon might seem like a bit of an odd fit given how the roster is currently constructed, but his potential is incredibly enticing, and Matt LaFleur should find all sorts of ways to get him involved in the offense.
