GREEN BAY – Brian Gutekunst is going to have a busy third day of the NFL draft, regardless of any draft picks the Green Bay Packers might receive if they trade quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

The Packers added two compensatory draft picks Thursday: No. 170 overall in the fifth round and No. 256 in the seventh round. The picks were rewarded to the Packers as compensation for losing receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling, offensive lineman Lucas Patrick and cornerback Chandon Sullivan in free agency last spring.
