Mini-Camp Report - May 2


The Green Bay Packers wrapped up the annual post-draft mini-camp inside the Don Hutson Center, Sunday.

With veterans having been released after yesterday's morning practice, Sunday was set aside for rookies and a few selected veterans.

In addition to working on position drills, the Packers turned their attention to special teams, focusing on downing punts inside the 10-yard line, with B.J. Sander and Travis Dorsch sharing the reps.

Special teams coordinator John Bonamego credited the performances of both punters during camp, but said Sander had an especially good outing Sunday working with the short field.

"He had six punts and they were all (downed) inside the 10(-yard line)," Bonamego said. "It was a good day and a good camp and we'll just keep working on it. It's a good situation for the Packers right now."

In team drills, quarterback Scott McBrien split defenders Ahmad Carroll and Eric Crouch to connect with wide receiver Frank Rice along the right sideline for a 45-yard touchdown.

Tight end Keith Willis took advantage of his 6-foot-6 frame, going up high to grab Craig Nall's pass for a 15-yard gain.

On defense, tackle Corey Williams wasn't fooled when running back Dahrran Diedrick handed off to Antonio Chatman on a reverse play, stopping the receiver in the backfield for a loss.

Defensive tackle James Lee, who returned from injured reserve after suffering a pinched nerve in his back during training camp last season, broke through the line to stop Diedrick at the line of scrimmage, while Crouch intercepted McBrien's pass in the middle of the field.

The Packers will return to action when they hold their second mini-camp in just over a month from June 2-11.
