If you're in the Green Bay area, it's time to head over to Clarke Hinkle Field. The Packers' first open practice of the year is today, as the team takes the field at 11:30 AM. As of the publishing of this article, the weather is expected to be around 80 degrees and sunny, ensuring that the team will indeed practice outdoors in front of the fans.

There are no details known about yesterday's first OTA practice, as the team had it closed to the media and fans. As such, today we will have our first practice notebook of the year.

In today's curds, we find a series of lists ranking various units and players from around the NFL, and the Packers are mentioned on a few of them.
