    Undrafted free agents

    You guys have any ideas who the Packers might get yet that's not drafted?

    The Packers have also added Coy Cronk, OT, Iowa.

    Of the UDFA's I would say most likely Uphoff and Heflin have the highest chance of making the main roster. Uphoff as DB depth with decent upside, Heflin as a space-eater DL depth. At this point, I don't see Heflin much more than a space-eater type, but given his size and strength if developed right he could like grow into a quality depth/journeyman starter type.

    Uphoff on the other hand I think has a ton of upside. Most people see his potential but would have like to see more consistency. One of his knocks is he can be a little too aggressive at times and scouts have noted that has lead to some boom or bust moments. Needs to polish his game in terms of attacking the runner and needs to work on his recognition skills. These features here are far from deal-breakers but may limit him from getting a ton of field time outside of an immediate special team's role. He's going to be a guy they will certainly hesitate to put on the PS. He's got a skill set that Jerry Gray has the ability to hone. If any of our UDFA's are going to be a success story it will be this guy. Though he needs some work. However, the pros greatly outweigh the cons. Uphoff is raw, but really high potential. Will be a bit boom or bust. He has a great combo of size and speed. He does well covering TE. Great athlete, good feet. Good route recognition. Can play man or zone. Likely will thrive as a box safety. He will immediately likely be a big-time special teams contributor.

    I see we picked up the token white receiver in Bailey Gaither. how soon before most of Packer nation calls him the second coming of Jordy Nelson?

    Uphoff was a pretty good returner too, so that's a big plus.
