The Green Bay Packers Draft Party, set for April 29 at the Lambeau Field Atrium, will feature appearances by Packers players Aaron Rodgers and Nick Collins, both Packers' draft picks from 2005.

In addition to the draft coverage, attendees will be able to take part in two new features for this year's party: the "FanTastic Combine," a draft tryout event featuring a 20-yard dash, vertical jump and other activities for fans ages 5 and older, and a viewing and photo opportunity inside Lambeau Field.

The event, from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., will feature ESPN draft coverage on two large television projection screens, and the Packers' flagship radio station, Newsradio 620 WTMJ, will be on hand to provide coverage and analysis throughout the day. Draft coverage from NFL Network also will be available on television screens in the Atrium.

Tickets for the event, priced at $25, are available at 18 Wisconsin Mills Fleet Farm locations and must be purchased in person. Children ages 3 and younger are free.

Packers President/CEO Bob Harlan and Executive Vice President/COO John Jones will address fans in attendance, as will other Packers personnel.

The Packers players, Rodgers and Collins, along with Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila, Terrence Murphy and Kurt Campbell, will participate in a question-and-answer session on stage with WTMJ Radio as well as sign autographs. Upon entering, all attendees will receive a ticket for one randomly assigned autograph session.

Other features of the day include:

  • Commemorative 2006 NFL Draft mini-football for all attendees.
  • Question-and-answer sessions with Packers players and team personnel, interactive games for kids and adults.
  • Free raffle prizes, including autographed Packers items and Mills Fleet Farm gift cards.
  • Trivia Contest.
  • Food and drink will be available for purchase at Curly's Pub, Hall of Fame Grill, Frozen in Time and Atrium eateries.

Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets early, as a limited number are available due to the Lambeau Field Atrium's capacity.
