The Green Bay Packers wrapped up the 2009 draft by selecting eight players, three on offense and five on defense. Here's a look at the 2-day selection process.

6 187 CB Brandon Underwood Cincinnati
7 218 LB Brad Jones Colorado [VIDEO]
The Packers really don't know how many of these players will end up starting for the Packers in the future, but it appears at least the two first round picks, B.J. Raji and Clay Matthews should be looked at as potential starters right off the bat. The Packers not only got some good football players early, but they addressed some needs as well.
The rookie players, including those that the Packers will sign as undrafted free agents, will be in Green Bay for a rookie orientation which starts on Friday.
Coach Mike McCarthy just said that they'll have to sign a free agent QB(s) to be able to run the practices during the practices this weekend. No veterans can participate, including last years rookie QB's Matt Flynn and Brian Brohm.
