    What about the undrafted rookies numbers? do we know those?

    • Chad Toporski

      Check the roster tab at the top of the site for all the numbers. I can update this post with a quick list when I get back to my computer.

    Oh, boy…

    Davon House was given 3irty 1’s number??

    Those some big shoes to fill.. I’d say that’s almost, but not quite, an equal burden to carry that Nick Collins was given when he was awarded #36..

    Hope you’ve got a strong enough back to carry the weight of that number, Davon!

    • Chad Toporski

      I don’t know Oppy… House could turn out to be better than Al Harris.

      ;-)

      • Oppy

        very possible, Chad, but the NFL is full of overtly talented young men who wilted under the pressure of expectation. Hope House lights it up!

  • Mark

    Guy got 91 according to the Packers website.

    • Chad Toporski

      Isn’t that how I listed him?

        No, I changed it Chad. Also changed DJ Smith.

        • Chad Toporski

          Thanks for having my back, Al. :)

    i like Williams as #84. i was big on williams before the draft and he was my favorite pick in the entire draft. it sounds like he has been really good so far. really smooth route runner and has shown good hands. pads will be the real test for a player like him, but all indications are that he looks fantastic.

    one writer wrote on his blog, “in two years people will be saying, “in what round did they get williams?”
