The Green Bay Packers have almost wrapped up their organized team activities, leaving only next week's three-day mandatory minicamp before the players depart for the summer.

We've learned a lot about this team throughout OTAs. Some players have turned heads on the practice field, while others haven't made the fast start they would've hoped for.

But there's still a long way to go before the Packers make any final roster decisions. Training camp will determine who wins each positional battle, beginning on July 22.

Before the Packers complete their OTAs, they were paid a visit from a former Pro Bowler.

Packers Pro Bowl defensive tackle Mike Daniels attends OTAs

Mike Daniels was one of the Packers' best defensive players during his seven seasons in Green Bay, earning Pro Bowl honors in 2017. He played alongside Kenny Clark at the start of his excellent Packers career.

Daniels returned to Green Bay on Tuesday as a guest at OTAs.

And there's one thing he wasn't impressed by. Daniels noticed that Dontayvion Wicks has his old locker.

Classic Mike Daniels. He was also part of the Packers' Tailgate Tour in April and was complimentary of new defensive coordinator Jeff Hafley.

"You might as well get Kenny Clark's Hall of Fame jacket and just start fitting him for it right now, man," said Daniels, via the Packers' website. "I'm excited for him and I'm excited for any young guy coming in, because they're going to come into a situation where they're going to be encouraged to make the plays and not be there for the others to make plays."

Daniels had a front-row seat to see Hafley's defense in action during OTAs. He has praised Hafley's approach to focus on getting after the ball and making plays. It should suit Clark's game, and it would also have helped Daniels reach another level while he was in Green Bay.

It's always great to see Daniels back in Green Bay. He was the star of the Packers' defense for several years, and his presence on the sideline can only help the young players on the roster.
