Green Bay's Fountain of Youth: What to Expect From the Packs' Youngsters

Packers GM Ted Thompson reigns supreme when formulating young team

The Green Bay Packers with help from GM Ted Thompson have once again defended their title of youngest NFL team entering the 2010 season. Okay, so last year they were tied with Kansas City however this year the Packers reclaimed the crown with an average age of 25.70 years, .19 year ahead of reigning AFC champion Colts.

Having a young team can have its ups and downs however with the veteran pieces in the right place it can be a recipe for greatness. Veteran pieces like Charles Woodson, Donald Driver, Ryan Pickett, and yes Aaron Rodgers can provide enough experience and savvy to win more than enough games.

Believe it or not the Packers signed 10 rookies for their 53 man roster with 3 of them being undrafted rookies. About 20% of their roster are players with no NFL experience other than some misleading preseason games. 

I am going to give an idea of when and where you can see these rookies on the field and what to realistically expect this season. 

Packer fans get ready because its the Y.O.T.T.O. (Year Of The Take Over) and like it or not these rookies will play a large role.
