Good morning and welcome to the Packers News Report for Saturday, May 5.

We’re one week removed from the 2018 NFL Draft, and a week closer to the start of the regular season. Both the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears will look different in Week 1. Based on the offseason the Bears have had so far, Mike McCarthy’s team will need to play well if they plan on making the perfect start to the new season.

Here’s a roundup of the latest news and analysis from around the internet.

Green Bay 53-man roster predictions following the draft (Lombardi Ave)

It’s never too early to predict the roster. With the draft in the books, I made my predictions for Green Bay’s final 53-man roster. For now, I have the team keeping seven wide receivers, including all three draft picks.

Every year there seems to be at least one surprise cut during the summer. We also see a number of the team’s experienced players departing, to be replaced by youth. Gil Alcaraz IV of NFL Spin Zone names five veterans he doesn’t believe will make Green Bay’s roster following training camp.
