Packers Calendar: Super Regional Combine

Packers Calendar: Super Regional Combine

On Monday, the Super Regional Combine taking place at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas wraps up.

Every NFL team is represented at the Super Regional Combine, including the Packers, who have representatives on hand to watch 219 players who were invited to Dallas after previously competing at one of 10 regional sites since January.

Those participants working out in front of scouts and team executives are players who have completed their college eligibility and were not invited to the NFL Combine in Indianapolis in February.

A few are former NFL players looking to get another shot. You'll notice among the list of players, former Packers signee Adrian Battles, who was on Green Bay's practice squad during Super Bowl XLV.

The Super Regional Combine got underway on Sunday when it was reported at NFL.com by Gil Brandt that former British Olympic discus thrower Lawrence Okoye was among the most impressive athletes. Okoye has the frame of 3-4 defensive end and could possibly be of interest to a team like the Packers, but he'll be very raw.

Also on Monday, former Packers player and coach Forrest Gregg will be honored by the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Allstate Insurance as part of their "Hometown Hall of Famer" program.

Gregg's hometown of Sulphur Springs, Texas will be presented with a plaque bearing Gregg's likeness in a ceremony celebrating Gregg's career.

Features recently in the media about Gregg include the Green Bay Press-Gazette and LombardiAve.com.
