GREEN BAY — Rookie first-round draft pick Damarious Randall participated in 11-on-11 work in Tuesday’s OTA practice for the first time after being limited to individual drills only through rookie orientation and last week’s first open OTA.
“It’s good to get him in the team stuff and get him past the individual,” Head Coach Mike McCarthy said following Tuesday’s workout on a sun-splashed Clarke Hinkle Field. “This is their last chance to get through everything, so they’ll be exposed to everything we ask them to do in training camp.”
The Packers drafted Randall out of Arizona State, where he played mostly safety, but he’s transitioning to cornerback for Green Bay. He was dealing with a minor ankle injury since his arrival in Green Bay.
The offensive and defensive installations continued with red-zone and two-minute work on Tuesday, with QB Aaron Rodgers finishing a two-minute drive with a TD pass to second-year WR Jeff Janis. QB Scott Tolzien also led a successful two-minute drive and hit TE Richard Rodgers for a score.
Rookie QB Brett Hundley made his first appearance at OTAs after missing last week due to a rookie event in Los Angeles. Rookie WR Ty Montgomery is the only draft pick who hasn’t participated in OTAs, as Stanford’s school calendar has yet to wrap up.
The Packers have more OTAs this week and next week before the minicamp in mid-June. The next practice open to the public and media is Wednesday, June 10.
