Cornerback Chris Johnson, the first of the Packers' four seventh round picks, was not daunted by the team's starting wide receivers. Sherman said the Johnson didn't give an inch to Javon Walker on a pass route.
There may be hope for another highly-touted draft pick, although he's no rookie. Defensive end Jamal Reynolds, the Packers No. 1 pick in 2001, came into the minicamp 10 pounds heavier (260).
"He showed a good burst off the ball, " Sherman said. "He had some pretty good pressures and great effort at times, so I'm encouraged by that."
