The latest Green Bay Packers 53-man roster predictions.
With a new GM managing the team, a new defensive coordinator in town, a kind-of new offensive coordinator returning back to Green Bay, multiple other coaches in new roles, some major departures in personnel (i.e. Jordy Nelson and Damarious Randall), and a change in approach on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball; we could be seeing a much different Green Bay Packers team in the 2018 season.
Last season, another one riddled with injuries, we were able to see a plethora of players on the field more often than we regularly would have if the team would have collectively stayed healthy. Some players took advantage of those opportunities and helped their stock going into the 2018 season, while some others did not.
There is going to be no lack of competition across many position groups this offseason, especially with a whopping 11 draft picks coming in, along with a slew of UDFA players. Competition gets the best out of players, regardless of where they stack up on the depth chart.
There will be battles all over the offensive side of the ball. DeShone Kizer and Brett Hundley will be battling for the backup quarterback position, while a few running backs battle for the starting job and a larger share of carries. There will be a great deal of competition at the wide receiver position behind Davante Adams and Randall Cobb, as well as a great deal of competition all along the offensive line.
On the defensive side of the ball, there will be a battle among linebackers for the other inside linebacker position next to Blake Martinez, in addition to a battle for snaps at edge rusher behind Clay Matthews and Nick Perry. The competition at cornerback will be very exciting to watch, and is undeniably needed among that position group.
