Green Bay Packers Training Camp Rookie Progress Report 2.0

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Through some effort and bargaining, Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst ended up with three of the first 34 picks of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Gutekunst ended up drafting 11 players. Eight of those players made their professional debuts in the preseason loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The result of the game, of course, is completely irrelevant. In the ultimate team sport, the only thing that matters are individual ratings.

“The difference between what you do out there on that practice field and then when the lights come on and there’s no coach behind you telling you what’s coming and being able to communicate and perform at the same time, I mean, that that’s what this game is. ,” Gutekunst said this week. “Guys who come up to this league and play for a long time at a high level, they’re able to handle that environment and those atmospheres. This will be the first and best test to really see these guys. Whether they have good performances or bad performances, it’s what they learn from it and how they carry it into the next two practices and the next game.”
