The 2017 NFL Draft is complete and the Green Bay Packers have already landed a few coveted undrafted free agents. NFL teams start trying to sign these UDFAs the second the draft ends, and sometimes even sooner, although all of the moves typically won't officially be announced for a few days.
While most UDFAs end up being little more than camp bodies, there are players that make the 53-man roster each season. The prospects all went undrafted for a reason, but they all have the potential to make it in the NFL in some role. And sometimes, teams strike gold with an Arian Foster or Tony Romo.
We have every player the Packers have signed below. We've also included a brief write-up about the more notable additions.
Donatello Brown, DB, Valdosta State
Johnathan Calvin, Edge, Mississippi State
Montay Crockett, WR, Georgia Southern
Thomas Evans, OL, Richmond
Geoff Gray, OL, Manitoba
Cody Heiman, LB, Washburn
Taysom Hill, QB, BYU
Izaah Lunsford, DT, Bowling Green
Adam Pankey, OL, West Virginia
Aaron Peck, WR, Fresno State
Lenzy Pipkins, CB, Oklahoma State
David Rivers III, CB, Youngstown State
Christian Schneider, OL, UC-Davis
Justin Vogel, P, Miami (Fla.)
Taysom Hill might be the most well-known name, thanks to his play at BYU. When healthy, he was a dynamic dual-threat and a blast to watch. The problem is, he hasn't really been healthy. He's already 26, but maybe he can stay healthy and make a roster.
It's a down group for the Packers in terms of notable names, but don't forget about punter Justin Vogel. Yeah, it's a punter, but he might make the roster. At the very least, he'll push Jake Schum.Back to the Green Bay Packers Newsfeed
