We finally made it - the 2015 NFL Draft is behind us, and the eight men in the Green Bay Packers' draft class are already on their way to Wisconsin (if they haven't made the trip already). Along with those players, numerous undrafted free agents are heading up to Green Bay as well, along with some minicamp tryout players.

Not surprisingly, the Packers picked up a handful of talented players after the draft, and among them are a few players from nationally-recognized programs. We'll take a look at a few who have a good chance to crack the roster in today's curds.
