Ranking the Green Bay Packers’ position groups from worst-to-best ahead of training camp.
Training camp is set to begin this week, which will lead to the Green Bay Packers‘ 100th season of play.
With the exception of a few waiver claims or undrafted free agent signings and cuts, the Packers’ roster heading into training camp is set. New GM Brian Gutekunst added a few big pieces, Jimmy Graham and Muhammad Wilkerson, and also 11 new draft picks highlighted by two cornerbacks with his first two picks, Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson. There was also a major subtraction with Jordy Nelson being cut.
There has been plenty to talk about in Packer Nation this offseason. There is still plenty to figure out. Training camp will bring competition up and down the roster, as a new defense is set in place and a few spots are open for new starters on offense.
Overall, this Packers roster is talented and deep in a few spots, with a few holes to fill. But there are plenty of young guys ready to step up and take control of their roster spot and help close those holes.
The defense is full of high-round draft picks and a new leader looking to harness that talent. The wide receiver position is set to see new blood enter the fray with three young draft picks and veterans looking to make their mark.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at how the Green Bay Packers roster shapes up heading into training camp by unit, ranking from worst to best.
