Sam Shields Needs to Prove He's Got Game

The Green Bay Packers open the preseason Saturday night against the Cleveland Browns at Lambeau Field.

Starters won't be around for long, giving the young guys a good opportunity to impress.

Not many have been more impressive than undrafted rookie corner Sam Shields. He continued his camp thievery with another pick Thursday and looks to be next in a long line of undrafted rookies to make the Packers roster.

But he needs to prove he can do it in games, starting Saturday.

"The games are what count. Practice counts, but you have to be able to do it in games. I'm ready," Shields said.

"The guy has a lot of ability, but he is young. He just has to work on his technique and continue to improve. The sky is the limit for the guy, though," Tramon Williams, who made the Packers as an undrafted free agent, said.
