The Green Bay Packers practice squad is set after the team filled the last of their eight spots on Monday. Here’s a look at who’s on it and where they came from.

Cornerback James Nixon — spent part of the preseason with the Packers after being signed as a undrafted free agent by Arizona out of California (Pa.). Nixon is what you’d call a project, considering he only played cornerback full time during his final college season.

Receiver Charles Johnson — was one of the Packers seventh-round draft choices this season, but barely got on the field at all because of injury. When he did get on the field, he flashed some potential, but that small sample wasn’t enough to earn him a roster spot. It was enough to get him on the practice squad.

Receiver Myles White — is another of the Packers undrafted rookie free agent. He’s out of Louisiana Tech. White was actually fairly impressive at times during the preseason. We’ll see what he looks like with a little seasoning.

Tight end Jake Stoneburner — was signed by the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State. Seems to have both the physicality and athleticism the Packers like at tight end. Stoneburner caught B.J. Coleman’s only preseason touchdown.

Quarterback Scott Tolzien — former Wisconsin Badgers great! Or something like that. Tolzien spent the majority of the past two seasons on San Francisco’s active roster, but played poorly this preseason and lost his spot. Oh, and probably not coincidentally, the Packers play the 49ers this week.

Guard Bobby Collins — was an signed as an undrafted free agent by Houston. Collins (6-3, 301) played at SMU, where he started 20 games and was a second-team All-Conference USA selection as a senior. He worked out for the Packers on Sunday and they obviously liked what they saw.

Tackle Aaron Adams — was signed by the Browns as and undrafted free agent out of Eastern Kentucky. Adams (6-5, 303) was two-time All-Ohio Valley Conference.

Running back Michael Hill — was signed as an undrafted free agent by San Diego our of Missouri Western, where he rushed for 4,969 yards and 35 touchdowns, while averaging 6 yards per carry.

    This article has mention of a quarterback on the practice squad. He was also a Wisco Badger.

    I expect 70+ comments, including some Ted Thompson questioning & Ron Wolf worshipping. Not to mention comments that span 8 or 9 paragraphs that are so long, most people won’t even skim through them. Grown men arguing like 13 year-olds. And mention of 7th-round draft picks becoming future Hall Of Famers.

    Sunday can’t come soon enough so we can all go into panic mode when San Fran completely destroys us. I will just be happy if it comes & goes injury-free. But who am I kidding?

    The Bears still suck.

      Good comment, though I think some people may be in for a shock on Sunday if they’ve already written the Packers off.

      Losers of the Super Bowl have a history, and it isn’t good.

      Plus, there is plenty of reason to believe these 49ers aren’t as good as last year’s.

      We’ll see if Kaepernick takes the next step or has a sophomore slump now that teams have seen him.

    Hill led Division II in rushing last season at Missouri Western State, but ran slow forty times. He lost out to Fozzy Whittaker for one of the final running back jobs in San Diego. Hill averaged 2.9 YPC on 21 preseason totes. Not very impressive at all.

    As for the new American Hero Aaron Adams, he might have a chance to stick as a tackle or guard…one thing’s for sure, dude loves Jesus and Guns!!! Woo hoo! (check Twitter @AaronA79)

    Again, I think DT Jordan Miller earned a spot on this team’s PC. But #s are #s as far as positional holes to fill.

      Stoneburner and Myles White have the best chance in my opinion. Both were nice pickups by Ted as UDFAs. I thought Jake would’ve been drafted somewhere in Rds 5-7 but he fell out of the draft for some reason. He has the hands and some natural route running ability, he just needs to get a bit stronger and become a better blocker. Myles White was probably chosen over fan favorite Tyrone Walker (who caught everything) because of his body type. Walker does not have a very good NFL ready physique and thus, would be a liability on ST whereas, Myles definitely had the stronger frame of the two and looks like a potential core Special Teamer.

        Not sure what that has to do with anything. THE POLAR BEAR has put us in contention to add at least another Lombardi Trophy. Thanks, POLAR BEAR.

          The Pack is definitely in the mix, but it’s not like we are the team to beat. Such praise was appropriate in 2011 and maybe the beginning of 2012, but not now.

          Wolfina, I know you jump at every opportunity to slowly nuzzle the polar bear’s ear, but if you are going to give TT credit for our super bowl run, you should give equal credit to Harlan for hiring your boyfriend in the first place.

          Let’s call it like it is – I hope we surprise the shit out of everyone and run the table, but about 10 wins looks to be right; that’s the over/under. And maybe 10 wins makes us play on the road in the playoffs – god knows we don’t like cold weather at Lambeau, so I say we shoot for that 5th wild card spot and we go to beat the Hormel fuckers in their dome, then spank Atlanta in 75 degree indoor weather, and get the #6 seahawks at home for the NFC title game. It could happen, right?

      And you’ll notice there is only 1 team in the NFC on that list.

      The NFC has been a lot more competitive, whereas the Pats, Steelers and Colts have owned the AFC in the last 10 years.

    To tyko—who are you, TT’s valet? You had the first comment and all you can do is whine about what people MIGHT say about your hero?

    Half of these nonentities will be gone within a few weeks, led by Tolzein, who’s only around for info on the Niners. Two more small OLinemen? Yawn. The ZBS lives.
