This, to me, seems like a relatively easy group to determine. The starters seem to be all-but-locked-in basically with Bakhtiari/Bulaga manning LT/RT and Sitton/Lang at LG/RG. The only question is at center, but seeing as Tretter has spent the entire offseason handling the starter reps, the odds are high that he stays as the top center option to start the year.

Barclay has shown ability to play anywhere they want to line him up, so look for him to be a very capable, multi-faceted backup. Sherrod has finally been healthy and shown enough to solidify the backup left tackle spot. Linsley has managed to get himself upgraded to the number two center spot, which I think he’ll hold down.

Because of the versatility of Barclay, the Packers could feel safe only taking eight linemen into the season, but if they want to take another the word is that it would probably end up being Lane. The rest of the group haven’t made a notable impact that I’ve seen, so I wouldn’t bet on any of them making the team without a couple injuries striking first.
