The Packers announced the signing of eight draft picks on Friday afternoon.

All eight of the picks came on the final day of the draft and all signed four-year contracts.  The top pick to sign his deal is fourth-round defensive lineman Colby Wooden.

Wooden had 45 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss, six sacks, three forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries while at Auburn last season.

Fifth-round quarterback Sean Clifford’s deal was also one of the ones announced on Friday. Pacts for Clifford and seventh-round wideout Grant DuBose were reported on Thursday, but DuBose’s deal has not been made official.

Fifth-round wide receiver Dontayvion Wicks, sixth-round defensive lineman Karl Brooks, sixth-round kicker Anders Carlson, seventh-round cornerback Carrington Valentine, seventh-round running back Lew Nichols, and seventh-round safety Anthony Johnson Jr. are the others to sign with the team.

  1. They’re still sixty of those behind the Vikings, cheese.
    There are several very interesting prospects in that group. The Packers will be young this season and will take some lumps. But in a year or two when some big money goes off the books, they are going to be serious contenders.

  2. I firmly believe that 30 years of Favre and Rodgers has produced a generation of adult football fans in Minnesota so blinded by and hate and failure, they know nothing else. It’s really quite sad, sincerely.

  3. Win win. Another offseason championship in the books.
    Do you have some sort of troll quota to meet or something?

    First to respond to a Packer story again, I see. Are you on this site 24/7 eagerly waiting for the word “Packers” to pop up in the titles? Pretty pathetic.

  5. No way those Packers can steal our Vikings’ annual off season championship.

  6. I’m enjoying all the positivity coming out of Green Bay lately. No pressure! The Packers have been predicted to finish fourth in their division. Great! Let everyone assume “they know.” I’m ready for the Packers to surprise people. There’s a reason (not money) Rodgers is no longer in Green Bay.

    Forced his way out? Sounds like it…..

    “I’m not sure it’s possible to fully express the gratitude that I have to the Packers, our incredible fans, the state of Wisconsin, the thousands of players that I crossed paths with, the incredible men and women who work for the organization, and the amazing people who I got to meet along the way, in one post with 10 pictures, but I hope you read this and feel my heart and soul, filled with love, joy, and peace about my time in green and gold,” Rodgers said.

  9. For those who have cognitive difficulties discerning examples of a players enjoying where they were prior to departing as opposed to those who clearly wanted out, here’s another example;
    “Stefon Diggs says he wanted out of Minnesota because the Vikings were too committed to the running game.”
    See the difference?

  10. Refusing to talk with or take gutekunst’s calls vs a PR written Farwell message…yeah

  11. In Minnesota, we have this burning need to try to trash anything and everything about the Packers. Playing second (or third or fourth) fiddle for all these years has driven us crazy.
