Rookie orientation ‘a very important two days’ for newest Packers

Draft picks, undrafted free agents and tryout players getting first taste of NFL in Green Bay this weekend Green Bay’s 11 draft picks will be called upon to set an example, the undrafted rookies will be looking to make a strong first impression, and several tryout players will be vying to get noticed and earn a contract.
Rookie orientation and its format have become an annual tradition in Green Bay, and the emphasis is on the opportunity in front of all the players.
“You’ve got every young man sitting on the edge of their seat,” Head Coach Mike McCarthy said shortly before the first practice Friday.
The Packers annually sign a tryout player (or two or three), and those players are aware of that as well.
“Every man that steps on that field today has an opportunity to be part of our 90-man roster,” McCarthy said.
“That’s how we approach it.
Any decisions made after the weekend will be geared toward building the most competitive 90-man roster possible for OTAs and training camp.
“That’s the norm.
Everyone has a story, a different vehicle for why they’re here.
Every one of those men has earned the opportunity to be in that room, so it’s important to take a close, hard look.”
