Green Bay Packers 2015 season grades: Cornerbacks
Hyde’s versatility makes him a valuable member of the Packers’ roster. Not only can he play cornerback, but he can also fill in at safety and be used as a punt returner. While Morgan Burnett sat out due to injury, Hyde filled in. It wasn’t a great year for the third-year player, but he did come away with three interceptions and one of the plays of the season against Minnesota in Week 17.
Speed is an issue for Ladarius Gunter, but the Packers like what they have in this young talent. He has a strong ethic and is a player who can develop into an important role player down the line.
Goodson didn’t play a whole lot in 2015. The former sixth round selection was on the bubble of the roster for much of the season and will need to make a big jump in year three to see his role increase next term.
Daniel was signed to the Packers’ practice squad in September before being brought up to the 53-man roster ahead of the playoff game in Arizona. The Packers are excited with what he can do in the future, and is a player to keep a keen eye on in training camp.
