Although they may not be a first round draft pick or someone that makes impact plays, they still made the team. The National Football League has historically had some of the best athletes in the world. The Green Bay Packers themselves have a historic Franchise. Thirteen championships, four Super Bowl titles, and numerous NFC North/Central Championships make for one legendary franchise. These five under-the-radar players may still have something to prove, either to themselves and/or their critiques. Josh Hawkins, Trevor Davis, Marwin Evans, Kyle Murphy, Lucas Patrick are all players that strive to have a larger impact on the team.

Being that he had such a great combine performance, the Packers picked him up in the fifth round, drafting him 163 overall.

In his rookie season with the Packers, he made his first real impact with the Packers in their loss to the Atlanta Falcons in 2016. Davis had 3 catches for 24 yards and one touchdown. We have all seen Davis’ speed throughout last season as he was returning punts and kickoffs. His longest punt return in his rookie season was for 55 yards. It will be exciting to see Trevor Davis in his sophomore season. He will be battling with Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, and Randall Cobb for a top spot on the depth chart. One interesting thing about Trevor Davis is that he has an NFL connection. Former Eagles QB Donavan McNabb is Davis’ second cousin. Football is in his blood, lets hope he lives up to his potential and performs at the level of which we know he can.
