Packers draft pick can't participate in off-season workouts

Email

Green Bay Packers' draft pick Johnathan Franklin cannot take part in any of the team's off-season workouts except for this weekend's mandatory rookie camp. NFL rules say rookies cannot participate in a team's OTA workouts or June mini-camps while their colleges are still in session, and they have not obtained their bachelor's degrees yet.

Franklin, a fourth-round running back from UCLA, must sit out all 10 OTA practices and the mandatory team mini-camp June 4-6.
