We’ve discussed three potential breakout candidates for a strong 2018 season for the Green Bay Packers. How about naming three more?
Any player, when given an opportunity, can shine on the football field. It all comes down to how that player uses their time to shine. With injuries a constant battle for the Green Bay Packers, many rookies, and other backups, have had to step up, even when they least expect it.
Some flourish when given the opportunity, while others fail to meet expectations. The latter is really difficult to witness as you want every player on your team to succeed when they are needed.
The Packers look to make a run for Lombardi Trophy number five. If they look to contend, as they should, they need 53 players at any given time to contribute at a high level.
Look at the Philadelphia Eagles last year. Nick Foles stepped up for Carson Wentz when he went down with an injury late in the season. Many teams would have just called it a season and looked to next year. Foles stepped up and had played his heart out en route to a Super Bowl championship.
If the Packers can get that kind of production out of their rookies and/or backups, the Lombardi Trophy could come back home once again.
With that said, here are three more candidates for breakout seasons in Green Bay.
