Packers add 19 undrafted rookies

Getty Images

The Packers have three undrafted cornerbacks on their current roster, including starter Sam Shields, and they added three more on Friday with the announcement of 19 undrafted rookie signings.

Makinton Dorleant of Northern Iowa, Josh Hawkins of East Carolina and Randall Jette of UMass are the three who got contracts from the team after the draft concluded. If Hawkins should make the club, the familiarity with overcoming long odds he gained while moving from walk-on to starter in college will probably be part of the reason.

The Packers also signed Lousiana Tech safety Kentrell Brice, Mississippi State linebacker Beniquez Brown, Arizona linebacker Reggie Gilbert, Idaho State defensive tackle Tyler Kuder, BYU linebacker Manoa Pikula and Texas-San Antonio defensive tackle Brian Price on the defensive side of the ball.

On offense, Green Bay signed Illinois wide receiver Geronimo Allison, Wesley quarterback Joe Callahan, Dartmouth center Jacob Flores, N.C. State tight end David Grinnage, Nevada running back Don Jackson, Carroll tackle Josh James, Rice wide receiver Dennis Parks, Utah State wide receiver Devonte Robinson and Miami wide receiver Herb Waters. Minnesota punter Peter Mortell filled out the group.

  1. And just like that…the dreams of catching on with a quality team were temporarily destroyed for these 19 young men.

    Here’s hoping they get cut or pull a Raji.

  2. After the “offensive” performance of last year, I can understand the desire to improve the punt game with a U of M punter…

  3. Good luck to the young men, maybe one can catch on and make the 53 man team, maybe a couple practice squad players.

    You know your troll game is weak when you’re attempting to unleash it upon rivals, on the UDFA article.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Actually, that punter went to a local Green Bay High School and that had more to do with it than any other factor.

    You see, the Packers also exhibit sentimentality in bringing some players into camp, the biggest difference they don’t waste 6th round draft picks just to get air time on the third day of the draft. They also don’t trade up into the first round to draft a kick returner.

  5. A lot of UDFAs like to sign with the Packers because they know they have a good chance to make the team.
    ———
    It’s true. They have done a great job in the past of finding hidden gems in UDFA that other GM’s aren’t able to find.

    And some of them end up proving that not only can they play, but they would have been a 1st round draft pick with the benefit of hindsight.

  6. Beniquez Brown makes this roster. Very talented.
    Surprised he wasn’t drafted 5th round or later.
    Maybe it starts out as a special teams guy but he has LB skills to be a 3 down player.
    Needs to absorb the scheme and get some field time.
    Maybe a contributor at Middle LB in year 2 or a good back up.

    You got it. That’s why they signed contracts. Exactly. They’re hoping they get cut. Uh huh.

    The Packers punt game was light years ahead of the Vikings last year. The offense too.

    You guys are so desperate to say anything negative as quickly as possible, you don’t stop to think.

    Maybe that explains why it is so easy to school you on this site so often.

    What do you think?

  9. Many of these guys participated in Larry Fitzgerald’s off-season training program, ‘Catch Me If You Can’, so they are naturals to try out for my Packers.

  10. For those of you who say Ted doesn’t sign free agents; well there’s 19 of them for ya. He just signed 19 players and paid less than the price of one big overpriced free agent veteran. If any of the UDFAs don’t work out they get cut with little to no penalty for the team. You miss on a veteran FA and you’re stuck with a bad player and big contract. It may be a long shot but at least with the UDFAs you have a chance of getting one or more quality starters with no risk.

    Say hello to NFL moneyball.

    ________

    Are the Packers the only team that signs UDFAs?

  12. @ In Ted We Trust

    Obviously a rhetorical question. We all know almost every team signs UDFAs. Ted is criticized for not signing enough veteran FAs. He does so because he signs a large number of UDFAs and is one of the few GMs in the league who can actually find multiple starters through this approach.

    I will say that not nearly enough credit is given to GBs coaching staff for taking these second tier players and coaching them up into starters. An excellent example of the front office working well with the coaching staff…

    Gosh – you think I didn’t know that?

    Most people know that the Mortell clan has operated the clock at Lambeau Field since the Lombardi days.

    His grandfather back in the Lombardi era and his dad since 2000.

    I give the kid credit for choosing to go to the U of M so that in addition to playing football he could actually get an education.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    I think, that as usual, you’re wrong…

    The next time you “school” me will be the first time in the history of PFT that you “schooled” anyone.

    Just like last year at this time, when you and the rest of the Packer faithful were spouting off that the Vikings would be eliminated from post season play by the end of October.

    Meanwhile, I (and most of the Viking faithful) were talking about having a winning season and possibly competing for a division championship.

    Funny thing is, the NFC North swept the Packers at Lambeau Field and the Vikings win in January dethroned the over confident Packer fans and team.

    You claim that the Viking fans get arrested more than any other teams fans at Lambeau – wrong.

    Packer fans have always had this “honor”.

    You point out that the Vikings have more playoff losses than any other team since the inception of divisional play.

    While on the face that is true, you forget to mention that the Packers (and a whole bunch of other teams) simply haven’t made the playoffs as often as the Vikings.

    You also forget to mention that the Packers went decades without even scoring a single TD in the playoffs of a full regulation season (late 60’s, all of the 70’s, all of the 80’s and the early 90’s).

    You can’t lose in the playoffs if you don’t make the playoffs…. 😀

    Consider yourself “schooled” – AGAIN!

  17. arianal…..a few too many Red Bulls this afternoon?

    That is a phenomenal synopsis you provided. What is difficult to ascertain is how such a terrible draft record results in the Packers having a record of 31-23 against the Vikings in this same period of time.

    I mean…the Vikings always draft higher….the Vikings always draft better…..and the Packers always draft poorly…..but the Packers have done better than the Vikings!!!

    Since 1989 the Packers have won 264 games overall and the Vikings only 231 games overall!! BUT THEY DRAFT SO MUCH BETTER AND ALWAYS DRAFT LOWER???

    What is wrong with this world? How can that be the case? Shouldn’t the superior Vikings have prevailed?

    What do you think?

  19. goatrider…..whenever you have no ammunition, which is often, you resort to the tried and true Viking troll tactic of insults and putdowns.

    Do you know why?

    Because that’s all you have, that’s why. That’s all you ever have. All of you.

  20. Every single offseason it’s the exact same routine, without failure.
    The Vikings dominate and win free agency.
    They have the absolute best draft and completely knock it out of the park.

    They are poised for greatness, Super Bowl bound, because their roster is stocked full of All Pros and sprinkled with Hall of Famers.
    The Packers are in full swing decline, again.
    Nothing can stop them from finally securing the NFL’s brass ring

    Then the season begins, real NFL Football ensues and the Barneys all stand around, mouths agape, with a bewildered and clueless look on their collective faces.
    Each of them wondering what went wrong. What went so terribly wrong.

    Rinse and repeat for another 50 years.
    skoLOL!

  21. goatrider…are you dense?

    Since the Vikings inception into the league, 1961, the Packers have played in the postseason the same exact numbers of games as the Vikings. Forty-seven times each.

    Let that sink in.

    The Packers postseason record in that time is 29-18, and the Vikings record is 18-29….all while combined with the Packers futility in the 70’s and 80’s!!!!!!!!

    School’s out…..go home!

  22. How cool would it be to have Allison as your childhood neighbor. When it’d be time for dinner his mother would stick her head out the kitchen window and yell “GERONIMOOOOOOOH!!”

  23. Vikings fans think that the Vikings are the favorites to win the division.

    Of course, they’re wrong.

    In fact, I think you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone that understands football who thinks the Vikings will repeat.

    Last year was the exception, not the rule.

  24. Just as Thompson “lucked into” players like Rodgers and Nelson, he almost always seems to “luck into” finding two or three undrafted free agents who make the team.
    And other teams around the league then truly luck into picking up Packer players who are cut as the team reloads.
    Oh, and let’s not forget the Super Bowl win Thompson “lucked into” also.
    Some organizations have been around more than half a century and haven’t “lucked into” a single one of those. Hard to believe.

  25. These young mean must be thrilled to be a part of the most successful franchise in the history of the NFL. Congrats and good luck to each of you.

    Sam Shields.

    Thanks for playing!!

    Lol

    Sam Shields.

    Just because the Packers gave him a horrible contract does not make him a good player, let alone a “1st round pick with the benefit of hindsight.”

    His only individual career highlight so far is as a replacement pro-bowler, and we know what you think about those…. He’s injury prone, hasn’t played an entire season in his 6 years. He was even ranked lower then 38 or was it 48 year old Terrance Newman last year.

    But I’ll bite, who else you got? You did say they were great with UDFA’s and some of them were 1st round talents. There must be something other then$10 million/yr average CB Sam Shields.

  30. Trademark of an elite GM: leave no stone unturned. Let’s face it, no matter who is drafting, an undrafted free agent isn’t necessarily less talented than, say, even a 4th round pick. They just haven’t had a chance to develop or showcase their talents yet.

    It’s also a tribute to a quality franchise that so many players want to join the Packers roster. They know it’s a great chance at an opportunity for a Super Bowl ring, even if it is on the practice squad.

  31. Just because the Packers gave him a horrible contract does not make him a good player, let alone a “1st round pick with the benefit of hindsight.”
    ————
    You should really follow the football more than a casual fan. Only career highlight? They already did several re-drafts of the year he was signed and he was a 1st round pick in EVERY single one of them.

    Nevermind that he also appears in the Top 12 CB’s in almost every list ever published. So yes. A starting #1 CB on any of the 32 teams in the NFL would defiinitely be a 1st round pick, let alone one in the Top 12-15.

    I bet you also don’t remember that Shields agent already had offers from 2 or 3 other teams before he re-signed with the Packers.

    Don’t let your blind hate of the Packers try to distort your reality like every other casual bandwagon Vikings fan.

    ———–
    Totally false. Find me one ranking that isn’t a Vikings fan blog. He’s missed a few games here and there like every other player. With the exception of 2 seasons, one of which was due to a concussion and basically th new very conservative concussion protocol. That’s a lot different than shredding your knee.

    I find it funny that you actually don’t believe that a Top 12-15 CB wouldn’t be a 1st round pick. SKOLOLOLOL

    “According to ESPN Stats & Information, since Shields’ rookie season of 2010, no player has more postseason interceptions than he does (four).”

    “It’s not the least bit shocking to hear Shields will test the market. The No. 22 overall player in Around The League’s 101 free agent list is coming off the best season of his career. The speedy cornerback compiled four interceptions and 51 tackles in 14 starts.”

    Sounds like a total scrub. Nevermind the 4.3 speed or being one of the fastest players in the NFL.

  33. Trademark of an elite GM: leave no stone unturned.
    ———–
    Or in the Vikings case, they just let the Packers do the work and then rush to desperately sign them as soon as they get cut.

    The funniest one being Brandon Bostick….literally after he screwed up the unthinkable onsides kick he was told 30 seconds earlier to NOT attempt to field it by his coaches. Packers sent him packing and the Vikings swooped in and signed him. Like usual.

  34. They already did several re-drafts of the year he was signed and he was a 1st round pick in EVERY single one of them.
    ——————–
    I searched “2010 nfl redraft” and went through the top 4 results. None mentioned Sam Shields.

    But I forgot. Packer fans do not talk like this in here so I must be imagining this conversation.

    Pro Football Focus.

    You can argue he’s a top 20 CB or whatever you want until your blue in the face. But that’s just your opinion, that’s not what the numbers tell us.

    But hey, he’s got 4.3 speed and was a replacement pro-bowler in 1 of his 6 seasons. Just like Teddy Bridgewater.

    Still waiting on any other UDFA that the Packers have signed that is even an average player, we’ll lower the bar for you. Hell, you had to go back SIX years to find an example of a 40th ranked CB in the NFL.

  37. I especially loved the “his contract wasn’t horrendous because his agent said he had 2 or 3 other offers” line.

    Kudos.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Apparently – you are dense.

    Using the first 7 years of an expansion franchise to pad your stats – and you can only come up with a tie???

    Since the inception of divisional play (otherwise known as the modern football era), the Packers have failed to make the playoffs more often then they’ve made the playoffs.

    Once the Lombardi era ended – the Packers went 25 years without so much as a single TD in the playoffs of a full regulation season.

    During that time frame – they only made the playoffs twice.

    Meanwhile – the Vikings won the division 4 times in a row (68 – 71) and followed that up with another 6 in a row (73 -78). There were another 4 division titles during the dark ages of the Packers and 4 wild card berths in there too.

    So let’s count it up the Packers numbers since the inception of divisional play.

    They won the first one in 1967. Next time was 1972. Fast forward to 1981 and the Packers have a total of two division championships and no wild card playoff appearances.

    Then there is the strike year – only 9 games played. The Central Division had 4 teams in the playoffs that year – the Packers, Vikings, Lions and Bears.

    Then it goes silent in Green Bay again for over a decade.

    I didn’t make this up – these are cold hard facts.

    Which is why you have absolutely ZERO credibility on this board…

    ==================================
    Actually, he fried you quite well when he pointed out that since the Vikings’ started, the Packers and Vikings have played the same number of playoff games, with the Vikings going 19-28 with 0 Super Bowls and the most playoff losses of any NFL team, and the Packers having a record 29-18 in the same time frame, with 3 NFL Super Bowl and 3 NFL Championships.

    I remember that you didn’t respond. You were put in your place, and you knew it.

    And if you want to claim the Vikings pre-Super Bowl NFL Championship, then add 2 more to the Packers, for their NFL Championships prior to moving on to win the first 2 Super Bowls.

  40. gtodriver-

    It is quite amazing that the Packers went 25 years without scoring a playoff touchdown, yet played the same amount of playoff games as the Vikings, but winning 11 more of them, and winning a bunch of Super Bowls and NFL Championships while the Vikings came away with nothing but the NFL record for playoff losses.

    But as you say “You can’t lose in the playoffs if you don’t make the playoffs”.

    And that the Vikings do. Better than anyone else. While other teams carry trophies home year-after-year, Vikings fans celebrate the fact that their teams best aspect is squandering their opportunities.

    19 players? Is this the Urban Myer approach crazy Ted has resorted to these days?
    Seems a little desperate.

  44. Oh yeah, that draft also included players like:

How would you like to be an NFL owner? See this? (Holds up the paper with Paclers logo) For only $250 you can own a piece of the Packers. That’s less than a dollar per day for a year. What do you say son? We need the money to get rid of the aluminum bleachers in Lambeau. You know, we are the only professional team that makes their fans sit on bleachers like high schoolers watching the Friday night game.”

    When is the fake stock sales pitch?
    //////////////////////////////////

    There isn’t any left. All 360,000 shares have been sold around the world. That’s 3 6 and four zeros.

    Sales pitch? There has never been a need for a sales pitch. The stuff sells itself. If they offered it again, it would be sold out before you could think of another simplistic insult or putdown in the absence of football related content. You know, like normal.

    Using the first 7 years of an expansion franchise to pad your stats – and you can only come up with a tie???

    Since the inception of divisional play (otherwise known as the modern football era), the Packers have failed to make the playoffs more often then they’ve made the playoffs.
    ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    Pad the stats? You ARE nuts. The Packers gave the Vikings twenty-two years to gain ground! The same twenty-two years you are obsessed with and won’t shut up about! The same twenty-two years nobody but you cares about!

    Viking trolls are notorious for selective rationalization and picking whatever timeframe or circumstance benefits them the most……from their point-of-view only.

    Modern football began in 1959.

    You must really like going to school. It’s a shame you never learn anything.

    1. Another Packer Bust in the first round!!!!!!
    Let’s take a look at their brilliance over the years. In Turd Thompson you cheese trolls still trust??? You yellow headed bug eyed trolls!!!!!!!
    Sincerely,\
    2016- Kenny Clark- projected as a 5th round pick, originally told to be more interested in the WWE than living in Green Bay.
    2015- Damarious Randall- Projected as a nickel back only, 30 teams already passed on him in the draft……. ?????
    2014- HE HE TIX TOX ( Refuses to make plays on 2 pt. conversions)
    2013 – Dantone Jones -BUST
    2012 – Nick Perry – BUST (40 million dollar signing bonus!!)
    2011 – Derek Sherrod –BUST (Ted Thompson gave over 65 million up front)
    2010 – Brian Bulaga – BUST (over 30 million at signing)
    2009 – BJ Raji – BUST / Clay Matthews- So far so decent
    2008 – NO Pick (forgot to turn in draft card)

    1995 – Aaron Taylor – BUST (Rumored to be trying a comeback per Ted Thompson)
    1992 – Terrell Buckley – EPIC BUST
    1991 – Vinnie Clark – BUST
    1990 – Tony Bennett – BUST
    1989 – Tony Mandarich – BIGGEST BUST IN NFL HISTORY!

    What I like about this troll is that he actually seems to be trolling the trolls. He says such obviously inaccurate things that it is like he is mocking the other Vikings trolls.

    If you analyze it, the reference to forgetting to turn in a draft card is a clear shout out to the Vikings. Those Mike Tice years were hilarious!

    GB fans that read pft comments are well aware of this master troll, I think it is time we start applauding the obvious reverse trolling instead of feeding him.

    When is the fake stock sales pitch? “Son, now that you signed a contract and have a little money you need to invest. What better way to invest than in a NFL team. How would you like to be an NFL owner? See this? (Holds up the paper with Paclers logo) For only $250 you can own a piece of the Packers. That’s less than a dollar per day for a year. What do you say son? We need the money to get rid of the aluminum bleachers in Lambeau. You know, we are the only professional team that makes their fans sit on bleachers like high schoolers watching the Friday night game.”
    ==================================
    Did you get your Vikings’ Legacy Brick yet? You can get the Vikings logo and 4 lines of text for a mere $360.00. For a brick.

    Same concept as Packers’ stock, just a different vehicle to raise money.

    You also get a locator map so you can find your brick, and then maybe take relatives and friends to see your brick, or have lunch by your brick. There are all sorts of things you can do with your brick. And if you can’t afford the $360.00 brick, the Minnesota Vikings have other options so you can buy a smaller brick.

    We’d never get hoodwinked and buy anything as dumb as Packers’ stock, say the Vikings’ fans.

    So they bought bricks instead.

    If you didn’t get yours yet, you’ll have to wait until they have another release. Apparently Vikings’ fans love them some bricks, and they sold out.

  53. They can actually own their personalized brick? For only $360.00? Bargain.

  54. I guess they “own” part of the stadium then to? That’s terrific. Great plan. Just think……Stadium Owners. It has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?

    You can shut up about the stock now.

  55. Paying money to have your name engraved in the stadium isn’t analogous or as pathetic as buying a piece of paper, calling it “stock” and claiming you are an NFL owner.

    ///////////////////////////////////////

    Neither is pathetic. It’s what fans do. Fans also buy “official” NFL jerseys. Guess what? …….Fake.

    Do you think the people buying “official” NFL jerseys know they aren’t really “real?” I’m guessing yes.

    The Viking website for the Legacy Bricks clearly states you “own” the brick. Can you take it home? Can you replace it with flowers? Can you paint it?

    There’s a lesson to be learned here. Do you know what it is? It’s simple.

    Stop hating. Stop obsessing.

    Give it a shot.

  57. Hats off to the Pack. They’re routinely looking for basketball players to take over for their depleted defense. And they were even willing to try a whale in the backfield.

  58. Same ol trolls. Must be terrible to not have a life, really surprised to see Contra is still breathing. Oh well, truth be known he;s most likely Cody, Adriana and Dahlmer too. A waste is a terrible thing to mind.
