A general manager can constantly get criticized for picking a bust with a top pick in the NFL Draft. But on the other side of the spectrum, you rarely hear praise when they find a diamond in the rough.
I'm not talking about the late-round picks like Tom Brady.
I'm talking about the guys picked up off the street and brought in for a tryout, the guys that are signed to the practice squad with barely any hope of seeing the field on Sunday—the undrafted players.
While some GMs are lucky to find one undrafted player to make an impact on their squad, Packers GM Ted Thompson has had five contribute in a big way in 2010.
