And then there were eight.
After announcing the signings of seven of their eight 2012 draft picks Friday, the Packers completed the signing process before the weekend hit, nailing down a deal with first-round draft pick Nick Perry. The team also announced the signings of 14 undrafted rookies earlier in the day.
A 4-3 end in college, the Packers are hoping that Perry can turn into as good an outside linebacker at the pro level as fellow USC alum Clay Matthews. Perry and Packers second-round pick Jerel Worthy are being widely projected as the starters at right outside linebacker and right defensive end, respectively.
