Ty Montgomery still an important piece of Green Bay’s offense (Lombardi Ave)

There’s a lot of discussion right now about which running back — Aaron Jones or Jamaal Williams — will lead the backfield. Which wide receivers will make the roster? How will Jimmy Graham do in Green Bay’s offense? One player many people are forgetting about is Ty Montgomery. While he likely won’t be the starter at running back, he’s still got a very important role in Mike McCarthy’s offense.

NFL Draft 2018: Biggest steal from each team (NFL Spin Zone – Dan Parzych)

It was surprising to see wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown fall all the way to the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. It was perhaps even more of a surprise that general manager Brian Gutekunst selected him, despite the fact he had already used two picks on wide receivers. But it could turn out to be a great move. Dan Parzych of NFL Spin Zone believes St. Brown is the team’s biggest steal of the draft.
