The article focuses on the football team Green Bay Packers. Rookie FS Nick Collins will be a player the club can build around in the secondary. Rookie DE Mike Montgomery gradually has received more playing time and is starting to flash some ability. Montgomery lacks bulk but has natural pass-rush skills. The club still wants to re sign starter Aaron Kampman and probably will draft an end, but Montgomery has put himself in the mix for next year. Coaches have taken measures to make sure Samkon Gado and the other running backs don't turn into fumblers.
