GREEN BAY, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Green Bay Packers will set their 90-man spring roster today, after wrapping up their rookie camp yesterday. Coach Mike McCarthy called it one of his better rookie camps, if not the best, since he came to Green Bay in 2006.He said the practices were more efficient than most, and players were more adept to getting on the same page.

McCarthy said one of the standouts of the weekend was Kansas State running back Angelo Pease, who had just 60 carries for 333 yards in his final year of college. McCarthy said rookie camp often confirms a player's movement and athletic ability, and he said Pease scored high on both. Pease expects to compete with two other rookies and three veterans for the starting running back job.

McCarthy also said that B-J Coleman would compete with Graham Harrell at training camp for the Number-two quarterback job behind Aaron Rodgers. Coleman was on Green Bay's practice squad last year. McCarthy said Coleman's not doing some things the way he was taught -- but he's still making progress.
