Week Eight defensive rankings

The Packers announced the signings of eight free agents — WR Diondre Borel, OT Chris Campbell, C Sampson Genus, WR Tori Gurley, FB Jon Hoese, DL Johnny Jones, S Anthony Levine and CB Brandian Ross. All eight players finished the 2011 season on the Packers' practice squad.

Borel and Gurley, who offer contrasting styles, are both considered to have promising futures that could make veteran wideout and fan favorite Donald Driver expendable. Gurley, a good-sized 6-4 possession receiver, and Borel, a converted QB whose style is very much along the lines of second-round rookie Randall Cobb, were courted by the Vikings and Buccaneers, respectively, before re-upping with the Packers.
