In addition to Moses, three more undrafted rookies make 53-man roster

Posted by Mike Spofford on August 31, 2012 – 8:14 pm

With the Packers’ announcement of roster moves on Friday night, three of the survivors were undrafted rookies: offensive lineman Don Barclay, wide receiver Jarrett Boykin and safety Sean Richardson. Including outside linebacker Dezman Moses, who had a line on a roster spot almost from the start of training camp, that makes four undrafted rookies who made it.

In a related surprise, cornerback Brandian Ross, an undrafted rookie a year ago who spent time on the Packers’ practice squad, also made the 53-man roster.

Keep in mind, however, that the roster moves may not be complete. Teams have until Saturday to put in waiver claims on released players, and a player awarded to a team off waivers must be placed on that team’s 53-man roster, so some roster shuffling could ensue on Saturday.

Barclay came on strong in the second half of training camp with the No. 2 offensive line and was no doubt helped by his ability to play both guard and tackle. Boykin beat out practice-squad holdovers Tori Gurley and Diondre Borel for a sixth WR spot, and Richardson joins his former college teammate at Vanderbilt — second-round draft pick Casey Hayward — on the roster.

The inclusion of Ross on the roster gives the Packers seven cornerbacks, counting hybrid CB/S Charles Woodson.

The Packers’ roster currently sits at 55 players, but LB Erik Walden is suspended for Week 1, and DE Mike Neal is suspended for the first four weeks. While suspended, they do not count against the 53-man limit.

Packers.com will have further analysis of the roster after GM Ted Thompson addresses the media at 2 p.m. Saturday. The press conference will be streamed live, with a story to follow.
