The Green Bay Packers made a deal with the New England Patriots to move up late in the second round of the 2012 NFL draft.

CBSSports.com passed along the terms of the trade on Twitter:

The Pats sent the 62nd pick to the Packers for picks 90 and 163. New England now has picks on Saturday.

With the No. 62 overall pick in the draft, the Packers selected Casey Hayward, a cornerback out of Vanderbilt.

Hayward is a player with great instincts in coverage. He should help out a Packers defense that finished dead last against the pass in 2011.
