    I'm just going to start things rolling and say......if he makes it through undrafted, go sign..

    Greg Dortch: WR, Wake Forest

    This guy could be a great punt returner and see how he does in the slot.

    I didn't realize that Te'von Coney didn't get drafted.

    Another ILB in UDFA would be nice... Te'von, Tre Lamar, TJ Edwards, all undrafted.

    All those LBs are one dimensional. Coney might have the best chance to be coached up but the rest can't play in space really.

    Seems like every year you get guys who were projected relatively high and they slide out of the draft. Probably due to character flaws, things we just don't see or hear about or just bad luck. Those guys will show up on someones UDFA list and still get a chance to prove themselves.

    I remember being super high on an UDFA ILB Beniquez Brown and an LSU WR, his name escapes me now....

    I think you are right and I was also thinking of ILB Beniquez Brown from Mississippi State. He was suppose to be a stud.

    Adrian Hubbard!

    The LSU WR was Malachi Dupre

    I was high on Colt Lylera..:roflmao: uber talented and athletic though. His inner demons got the best of him. Last time I heard of him, he jumped out of second floor to escape custody. Guess he still chasing that white dragon. Sad not to see what could have been.

    Curtis Bolton III LB from Oklahoma just signed with GB. Plays with his hair on fire. Smaller, faster type of ILB 6'0- 225 lbs. Might get gulfed up by NFL OLinemens but hes hits with bad intentions. Would be a good fill in specials team.

    Well, the Packers already brought in "competition" for Crosby.

    Just curious what kind of QB battle this will be? We have Wilkins who plays for the Sun "Devils", and Collins who plays for Southwestern Assemblies of "GOD" University. Is this Good Vs. Evil? Is the world gonna come to an end in Green Bay Wisconsin?

    I get Wilkins, as he was the highest rated UDFA QB per NFL.com, but this Collins guy I'd have to do some work on.

    Wilkins is smallish though, not sure how he'll hold up.

    It would have been nice to snag Tyree Jackson as the second QB, but again I'm sure he felt it was best to go elsewhere(He went to the Bills).

    Recall they already signed Fickens who has a little NFL experience. That's the competition.

    I don't recall McCarthy ever having 5 QBs on the camp roster, sometimes only 3 if memory serves. Throw in a 6th. in the rookie minicamp.

    Either LaFluer plans to work the hell out of the receivers in camp with these extra camp arms or there's enough interest in these guys to find a bench upgrade. Or both.

    Missed Cornelius, he's not even listed on NFL Draft section of the league website, except for as a top QB in the UDFA article despite coming from a Power 5 school. He was also a combine snub.

    He might stick more than either of the previous two; however, if we stuff him on the PS after showing any type of promise in the Preseason, he's probably gone to be someone's No. 3 QB.

    I believe Cornelius and Collins are both in for rookie camp on a tryout. Collins was list as UDFA early, but I saw another updated list late last night that had him listed with the invites. I'm sure we will be down to 4 after the rookie minicamp.
