    Who: Draft choices, undrafted free agents and about 15-20 tryout participants will attend. Also, seven first-year roster players will be there. They are: WR Johnny Quinn, RB Corey White, LB Spencer Havner, LS Thomas Gafford, CB Joe Porter, G Cameron Stephenson and G Ryan Keenan.

    The camp: Coach Mike McCarthy set up this weekend as primarily a lesson to the rookies on how the Packers do things. There will be three practices, one each day, and in between there will be meetings with coaches, medical personnel and various team functionaries. According to a spokesman, all nine draft picks are expected to attend along with about a dozen rookie free agents signed right after the draft. For the draft picks, the weekend will mostly be a chance to familiarize themselves with the playbook and practice structure, but for the tryout players, including UW-Whitewater running back Justin Beaver, it will be a high-pressure audition. The full team will take part in team-organized activities starting May 19 and will gather for a mandatory minicamp June 17-19.
