It happens just about every year in Green Bay with the Packers, especially since Ted Thompson has been running the front office starting in 2005. I'm talking about at least one undrafted rookie making the team.
The list is fairly long. Current members of the Packers who joined the Packers that way include cornerback Tramon Williams (2005), long snapper Brett Goode (2008), punter Tim Masthay (2010), cornerback Sam Shields (2010), linebacker Jamari Lattimore (2011), offensive lineman Don Barclay (2012), tight end Brandon Bostick (2012), wide receiver Jarrett Boykin (2012), safety Sean Richardson (2012), linebacker Andy Mulumba (2013), tight end Jake Stoneburner (2013) guard Lane Taylor (2013) and wide receiver Myles White (2013).
It's hard to say whether or not an undrafted rookie can make a team just based on scouting reports and tape. You also have to see the player in person, especially during training camp.
For instance, I kept my eye on Barclay in 2012, and I knew he had a real good chance of making the final roster of the Packers, which is exactly what happened.
Now it's time to look at the undrafted rookie class for 2014. Again, it's hard to say for sure whether a player has a chance to make the final roster currently based on what certain scouts say and looking at game tape but right now that's all we have to work with.
Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had a nice piece about the 2014 undrafted rookie class for the Packers recently.
Based on the information I have to work with, I'm going to list the five players in this slideshow who I believe have a chance to make the final roster of the Packers, or at the very least the practice squad.
Some of these players will have one other undrafted rookie as their main competition to make the squad. I will list them in the appropriate slides as well.
