Training camp has begun for the Packers as Green Bay prepares to make a run at another Super Bowl this season.
With that said, which Packers players will have breakout seasons?
WR Randall Cobb
Randall Cobb made a big impact last year as he gave the Packers an impact return man who could break out for at least one huge return a game. Cobb’s speed will make him one of the most dangerous players in the NFL as he will be able to burn a lot of secondaries over the top on play action passes. Cobb’s speed will also allow him to seperate on normal pass plays as a slot receiver which makes him that much more dangerous. Randall Cobb will make the Packers’ already dangerous offense even more dangerous which will allow Aaron Rodgers to win another MVP.
OLB Nick Perry
Nick Perry was the top pick for the Packers this year and can be an immediate starter for the Packers at outside linebacker opposite of Clay Matthews.
Perry has already shown an excellent ability at shedding blockers and getting tons of sacks against quality Pac-12 offensive lineman. Perry will be a sack machine for the Packers as he is the player that Green Bay has been needing across from Clay Matthews. Perry will be a contender for rookie of the year as he will big help to a Packer defense that has needed help.
CB Casey Hayward
Casey Hayward was a very successful player coming out of Vanderbilt and players that have tons of success in college tend to have some level of success in the pros.
With Charles Woodson most likely moving to safety, Hayward is the perfect person to become the nickel cornerback as his ball-hawking skills will allow him to make an immediate impact in his first year against slot receivers.
Hayward also can back up at safety with his excellent ball-hawking skills. Hayward will look like a steal after this season as the Packers have found another good, young cornerback.
