The Packers organization is not fond of signing big name free agents or making big trades; they only take interest in picking players out of the scrap heap and developing them into good players.
This method has been scrutinized by the Packer faithful ever since Ted Thompson became general manager, until, of course, the Packers won the Super Bowl.
It may be a method that no other general manager in the league uses, or may even be a method that no GM has ever used in the NFL, but Thompson has proven once and for all that it does work.
How does he do it? It's not just that he knows how to control himself in times of desperation or frustration, like how he refused to trade for Marshawn Lynch last season. It's also that he just has a good eye for players that have "hidden" talent. It's why he traded up for Clay Matthews and Morgan Burnett.
This method has brought in a slew of young and talented players these past few seasons, and here are the top five of them to keep an especially close eye on this season.
