The 2018 NFL draft is officially in the books, meaning you can officially start making yourself familiar with each pick. The Green Bay Packers came into the draft with a league-high 12 picks, but following a few trades made 11 selections in total. Here is a look at their 2018 draft class.

Once their final pick was made, the Green Bay Packers were on pins and needles hoping their potential undrafted free agent targets would be available. That’s the risk you take when you don’t use an official pick on them.c

Even with 11 total draft picks and three in the seventh round, there were still a handful of guys new general manager Brian Gutekunst wanted to join his team.

Within 24 hours Green Bay announced 15 undrafted free agents signings for guys who will be competing for a roster spot this summer. This is a quick look at who those guys will be:

Alex Light, OT,  Richmond

Alex Light was a three-year starter playing both guard and tackle for Richmond. A first team All-Conference player, he started the final 38 games of his college career. Scouts believe he may have a career as a swing tackle on the next level.

Austin Davis, C, Duke University

In 2017, Austin Davis earned a spot on the All-ACC third team and All-ACC bowl team. The team captain was on the field for a total of 1,987 career snaps anchoring a forceful offensive line. Duke’s offense compiled over 2,200 yards rushing and 2,700 yards passing last season.

Chris Seisay, CB, Portland State

At 6-1 200 pounds, Chris Seisay has ideal size for the cornerback position. He finished his college career with 100 tackles and five interceptions. Seisay began his career at Oregon before transferring to Portland State after his sophomore season in search of more opportunity. He ran a 4.5 40-yard dash but will have to work on his top-end speed when pressing on the outside if he wants to last.

Clarance Johnson, OLB, East Texas Baptist

Clarance Johnson is lauded for his work ethic and sure tackling. The Division-III product finished the 2017 season with 29 tackles, 5.5 for loss, and two sacks.

Damon Gibson, TE Minnesota State- Morehead

Damon Gibson put together an impressive senior season despite missing four games with an injury. He posted 54 catches for 649 yards as a receiver. Some scouts believe his size has him better suited to play tight end on the next level. At 6-3 230 pounds it’s hard to argue.

Filipo Mokofisi, Dt, Utah

The Utah product doesn’t have a great build, but possesses sneaky athleticism that can catch interior lineman off-guard. Mokofisi finished his college career with 107 stops, 17 of those for loss, and 10 sacks. His profile listed him a priority free agent.

Jacob Alsadek, OG, Arizona

At 6-foot-7 and 325 pounds, Jacob Alsadek has ideal size for an NFL lineman. However, sluggish feet often get him off-balance causing him to miss blocks. His strong hands and lengthy arms will give the Packers something to work with though.

Kevin Rader, TE Youngstown State

Kevin Rader is the second UDFA competing for the open tight end spot on Green Bay’s roster. At YSU, Rader caught 41 passes for 601 yards and four touchdowns. He also made one of the iconic plays in school history when he caught the game-winning touchdown to send his team to the National Championship.

Kyle Meadows, OT, Kentucky

Kyle Meadows was a three-year starter at Kentucky where he helped an offensive front become a semifinalist for the Joe Moore Award (Most Outstanding Offensive line). The Packers need depth behind the injured Bryan Bulaga at right tackle and that is exactly where Meadows started 35 career games.

Marcus Porter, ILB Fairmount

For the Fairmont State Falcons, Marcus Porter was a standout in the middle of the defense. He was a first-team All-MEC selection for his play at middle linebacker. Porter finished sixth in the league in average tackles per game with 8.3.

Naashon Hughes, OLB, Texas

Named a top UDFA by, Hughes was a huge find for the Packers. He played defensive end for the Longhorns but has the athleticism to move to outside linebacker in a 3-4. Hughes totaled 11.5 career sacks at Texas.

Parris Bennett, ILB, Syracuse

At 6-foot and 216 pounds, the former All-ACC member will need to add weight and muscle in order to make it on the next level. Parris Barrett was frequently used as a blitzer at Syracuse which meshes well with defensive coordinator Mike Pettine’s philosophy.

Raven Greene, S James Madison

Raven Green holds the all-time record for career interceptions at JMU with 14. He was a second-team All-FCS selection in 2017 after making 82 tackles, seven pass breakups, and five interceptions.

Tim Boyle, QB, Eastern Kentucky

Boyle is the fourth quarterback signed to Green Bay along with Aaron Rodgers, Brett Hundley and DeShone Kizer. After spending three seasons at Connecticut, Boyle transferred to Eastern Kentucky looking to start for his senior season. He finished with 2,134 yards, 11 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions.

Tyler Lancaster, DT, Northwestern

Tyler Lancaster is the second Northwestern graduate on the Packers defensive line joining former teammate Dean Lowry. As a team captain in 2017, he had 40 tackles with 9.5 being for a loss. Lancaster is great at eating up double teams and stopping the run using his 6-4 315-pound frame.
