Today, the Green Bay Packers 90-man roster comes together for the first time this season. With rookie minicamp now in the rear-view mirror, the rookies and veterans will start working out together today.

On-field events will not begin for another two weeks, however, as Organized Team Activities will start on May 27th and will continue through the following few weeks. Check out the full offseason program schedule here for all the critical dates.

Today, we look back at rookie camps from Green Bay and around the NFL, and we find a few names that are starting to stand out among the Packers' undrafted free agent class.

Moving to the head of the class |
Linebackers Joe Thomas and Adrian Hubbard are among the first-year players who benefitted from rookie practices over the weekend.

It's not only minicamp that helped Hubbard bulk up and learn the playbook though; he spent the entire offseason in Green Bay training and working on his game.

Keep an eye on these 3 undrafted rookies |
Guard Matt Rotheram, running back John Crockett, and APC cult hero linebacker Tavarus Dantzler are the names listed as having some of the best shots at making the 53-man roster.

Crockett is mentioned here along with the Packers' other UDFA running back. One of the main reasons that Louisiana-Lafayette's Alonzo Harris ended up in Green Bay is the team's depth chart - with only three players under contract, Harris saw a great opportunity to make the team.

This is fantastic. After meeting and rooming together at the Senior Bowl, the Packers' first two draft picks joked about ending up on the same team. Now here they are, teammates and competitors in Green Bay.

Packers-Bears in week one is number ten, featuring the matchup of Kevin White vs. Damarious Randall. However, I'm skeptical that those two will actually see much of each other in the opening game of the season.
