What to expect from Green Bay Packers wide receiver Michael Clark in 2018.
There’s a lot of competition for places at wide receiver this summer. One Green Bay Packers pass catcher not to forget about is Michael Clark, who impressed late last season.
Clark will be one of the players to watch at training camp.
Clark played in the final two games of the regular season, catching four passes for 41 yards.
It’s hard to review Clark’s season as he only played in two games and had four catches in that time. What was interesting was that the Packers decided to use Clark in those games ahead of draft pick DeAngelo Yancey, suggesting Clark was higher on the depth chart.
Odds of making roster: 50 percent
Right now it’s difficult to predict which wide receivers will make the 53-man roster. The Packers clearly like Clark’s potential, but he will need to play well at training camp and in preseason to secure a spot on the roster. After drafting three receivers in the spring, there is a lot of competition for places.
Of all the training camp battles for the Green Bay Packers this summer, wide receiver is the most interesting.
Clark has a good chance of making the 53-man roster. He now has some experience playing in the NFL. It will be interesting to see how far he’s come since December.
The Packers will keep six or seven wide receivers on the roster in all likelihood.
Clark would then need to play well enough to earn a roster spot in a competition featuring Trevor Davis, DeAngelo Yancey and rookies J’Mon Moore, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown. It’s hard to see the Packers cutting all three of their draft picks.
But Clark, who would give the Packers another red zone target at 6-foot-6, is very much in contention for a spot on the final 53-man roster.
It’s going to be an exciting training camp, which begins in just over two weeks.
