The Green Bay Packers remain a great landing spot for undrafted free agents. They are given a good opportunity to make the roster and become key contributors.

Green Bay believes in drafting and developing, which extends to undrafted signings. Wide receiver Malik Heath, safety Benny Sapp III, and edge rusher Brenton Cox Jr. are examples from last year. Wendell Ferreira of A to Z Sports notes that at least one undrafted free agent has made Green Bay's 53-man roster for 19 straight seasons.

That would indicate the odds are high for another undrafted rookie to make the roster this year.

Green Bay signed several undrafted free agents immediately following the 2024 NFL Draft, but which prospects have the best chance of winning a roster spot?

3. Trente Jones, OL, Michigan

Consider the competition for roster spots along the offensive line to be wide open. While the Packers drafted three linemen, two were Day 3 selections. There will be plenty of opportunities for undrafted rookie Trente Jones to prove himself and earn a roster spot.

"Jones has limited starts and relatively few offensive snaps by NFL offensive line standards but he's put outstanding flashes on tape," writes Lance Zierlein of

Jones is an excellent athlete with an RAS of 7.45 and has experience at left and right tackle. He will likely move to guard in the NFL, and there is an opening on the Packers' roster.

2. Peter Bowden, LS, Wisconsin

The Packers signed Wisconsin's Peter Bowden for a reason. Bowden was the highest-rated long snapper in the class, and they wanted to create competition for Matt Orzech. Green Bay's search for consistency at the position continues, and Bowden will have a chance to prove himself at training camp.

"I think he wins the job. This could actually be a big signing," writes Andy Herman of Packer Report.

1. Donovan Jennings, OL, South Florida

There's a good chance Donovan Jennings will make the 53-man roster. It's surprising he didn't get drafted, but it's not surprising he ended up in Green Bay. Jennings met with the Packers before the draft, and their interest is understandable.

Along with an elite Relative Athletic Score of 8.93, Jennings has plenty of left tackle experience. He will move inside at the NFL level, but the Packers love that versatility.

"I'm working on the different techniques necessary that it takes to be a great guard at the next level," Jennings told The Draft Network's Justin Melo. "I proved that I could play guard throughout my showing at the East-West Shrine Bowl. NFL scouts saw me put that on display."

Per PFF, he allowed only two sacks on 459 pass-blocking snaps last season. Signing Jennings is like having a bonus Day 3 pick. He has a real shot at making the Packers' roster.
