Packers Open Practice on Wednesday

There isn't much that can be taken away from watching the Green Bay Packers run practice without pads in June. Mike McCarthy was talking about it at his press conference, in reference to the competition at punter, that he wouldn't put either one ahead of the other until he watches them in games. It really doesn't matter how they look now because the coaches are just introducing the players to the new schemes and concepts for 2010. But from Greg Bedard's live blog I did notice the names of a couple rookies.

WR Chastin West. The undrafted rookie out of Fresno State caught a TD pass from QB Matt Flynn. I expect the Packers will start the season with 5 WRs but I don't know who's No. 5. When I attempted to predict the 53-man roster, I selected WR Brett Swain despite the fact he's coming back from major knee surgery. If West can show good hands and play hard on special teams, then he's got a real shot at making the 53-man roster in September.

LB Frank Zombo. The undrafted free agent out of Central Michigan seems like a long shot as he makes the transition from college DE to NFL LB, but he's got some fans who read this website. He got after the QB in practice, and they'll find a roster spot for him come September if he can prove he's a legitimate NFL pass rusher.

TE Andrew Quarless. GM Ted Thompson has done well in the draft, but his 5th round draft choices never seem to pan out. This year's 5th round choice was a surprise when Quarless was selected, and I've read multiple times that he's dropped passes in practice. He has no chance at making the 53-man roster if he can't hold onto the ball.
