This was on Packer News thought I save some guys a free article.  One thing I noticed they are bringing in a lot of guys to compete at G. So we got 7 guys who are going to compete for that RG spot. One thing they all have in common is intelligence.  Probably why the Pack only drafted 1 OL.  They had 4 other guys they liked and were able to sign as UDFA's.  Way I see it is that competition is wide open.  UDFA or not let the best man win.

If Hill doesn't stick as a QB, look for the Packers to make him a FS. He's a great athlete.

There's no way he makes it as a qb, he's known more for his running ability. I don't think he'll do much he's already 26 and was hurt a lot in college

Cheesehead TV has (Florida Int) DT Imarjaye Albury listed as well.

Clement to the Eagles:

Philadelphia Eagles
Corey Clement, RB, Wisconsin

I saw Dare Ogunbowale signed an UDFA contract with the Houston Texans.  I think he'll be better than Clement in the NFL.

After watching them both compete as Badgers for several years, I agree with you. Corey Clement does not seem to have the athletic ability to earn a roster spot in the nfl.

Should have taken Mathis in the 7th instead of a 3rd RB....

If it makes you feel any better, he actually signed with the Houston Texans, not the cowpies.

Would like to have seen Carroll Phillips the OLB from IL. Otherwise, TT didn't seem to sign guys that I knew about, so can't say what I think about their chances. One guy that was discussed to pick as a TE was the QB from Texas. He went to the Seahawks.

Raysean Pringle (S.Utah) was another undrafted pickup.

An interesting project. He was a RB in college, but the Packers are listing him as a CB. He has the height/weight/speed for the job at 6'0", 200lb and runs a sub 4.4 40. Probably practice squad material, unless he sticks on ST as a kick returner. Looking at him in shorts on his pro day, the guy is absolutely ripped - he's no stranger to the gym.

Another guy who worked out well at SUU was TE Steven Wroblewski The Cards picked him up after the pro day - he is 6'7", 255 and runs in the 4.6's and showed crisp routes and good hands, so you can see why they were interested.

It has been over a month now sense this undrafted lot has joined the 90 man roster. ( Before anyone feels the need to correct me about Derek Hart. I know he is a player who graduated a year ago, but he was never signed coming out and the Packers signed him as a UDFA before the draft, hence added to the group). Fans have had a chance to get to know them a little and get a gut feeling on who may have a chance to  crack the 53 man opening day roster. History tells us that a handful of these guys will make it. But who? If you had the choice to keep 4, who would be your 4?

I've got a coin flip between Geoff Gray and Adam Pankey for one spot.

The others.............
Calvin Johnson
Will Stanbeck
Donatello Brown (yes, I know he's already 26)

Would think all of those are going to be strong candidates for spots.
The OLinemen should be interesting to watch, can't say I have much of a feel for anyone of the 3 just yet.
Johnathan Calvin was a guy I was toting that GB was going to draft on the 3rd day, so you know I'm on that bandwagon.
Will Stanback is a guy that would have been drafted on ability, but is a trainwreck off the field.
With Brown just not on that bandwagon just yet, so he's probably the roster lock.
