Green Bay Packers: Grading the 2015 rookie class
One year in, it looks like Ted Thompson has hit a home run with this draft class. Not only was he able to add a group of talented football players with high potential, but also fill some key needs across the roster.
When Tramon Williams and Davon House departed in free agency, the Packers were left with a deficiency at a premium position on defense. By adding Randall and Rollins, the transition has been as seamless as you could hope for, and the two young corners have star potential.
Montgomery has the tools to become a great asset on offense and special teams. It’s exciting to see what he can do when healthy with a full offseason behind him. Adding Jordy Nelson back to the mix will also be of great benefit.

Ryan looks to have found a role at inside linebacker and can grow into a role player on defense. Ripkowski is expected to be the long term successor to Kuhn, and Hundley looks set to become a capable backup quarterback who could win the Packers some games when called upon and send some draft picks back their way.
Thompson has put together some strong classes in recent years, and he hit the 2015 class out of the park.
