GREEN BAY, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) Eleven draft picks, nine undrafted free agents and 27 players trying to hang on – all are joining in rookie camp workouts in Green Bay this weekend. Nine of the 11 drafted players have signed contracts.

Getting a lot of attention at the Friday workouts were first-round draft pick and defensive end Datone Jones from UCLA and second-round pick and running back Eddie Lacy from Alabama.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy says rookie camp is just as much about becoming oriented to life as an NFL player as it is about football.

The real work comes in six weeks with the full squad mini-camp.
