The Packers' two top picks, plus an undrafted player, are impressing their position coach in practice.

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to Wednesday, day two of the Green Bay Packers' 2015 minicamp. Today, the Packers get a day off from practice to go on some sort of teambuilding event, and though Mike McCarthy avoided announcing what the event was, we should find out later on today.

In the meantime, there is some useful news coming out of Tuesday's minicamp practice. The big item revolves around the cornerbacks, where three players have started to emerge from the pack behind veterans Sam Shields and Casey Hayward. Thankfully for the Packers, two of those three are this year's top draft picks, which is a (very) early sign that those investments may turn out to be good ones.

Beyond that, we have some news about two Packers wideouts as well as a few more ranking lists on which the Packers make appearances.
