From Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Packers tried out Indoor Football League player B.J. Hill of Green Bay Blizzard and former Georgia Tech running back Orwin Smith:
Listed by the Blizzard as 5 feet 9 inches and 180 pounds, the 27-year-old Hill scored touchdowns on 13 of his 166 returns from 2010-'13. He averaged 20.6 yards.
Hill was named the IFL's top kick returner in 2011 and '13, and was second team in '10. He also was a second-team defensive back in '10.
In his Blizzard career, Hill also caught 40 passes for 513 yards (12.8) and 12 touchdowns, rushed 11 times for 18 yards (1.6) and three TDs, and intercepted 20 passes (three TDs).
Playing four seasons, Smith was Tech's primary kickoff returner as a freshman in 2009. Then he started six of 13 games in 2010, 11 of 12 in '11 and 12 of 14 in '12.
The Packers also reportedly worked out rookie defensive back Darren Woodard and nose tackle Chigbo Anunoby.
