3. Who will win the backup quarterback job?

One of the top training camp battles will be at quarterback. A healthy Aaron Rodgers is great news for the Packers, but what happens if he gets injured again? Who will be the team’s top backup: Brett Hundley or DeShone Kizer?

Hundley was the number two behind Rodgers last season, but didn’t play well when Rodgers missed time. Hundley was intercepted 12 times, and threw just nine touchdown passes, including zero at Lambeau Field. The Packers were shutout in two home defeats, to the Baltimore Ravens and Minnesota Vikings.

Hundley did have some good moments. He played brilliantly on the road at Pittsburgh, throwing for 245 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. The Packers were unlucky to lose by a field goal, 31-28.

Hundley also played well at Chicago, guiding the Packers to an important road victory. That afternoon, Hundley threw for 212 yards and a touchdown, with a perfect passer rating in the fourth quarter, according to NFL Research.

Kizer had a disappointing rookie season in Cleveland last year. The Browns lost all 16 games, and Kizer threw just 11 touchdowns with 22 interceptions in 15 games. But Kizer is the younger quarterback with less experience, and the Packers traded for him this offseason.

Hundley has more experience, but Kizer has the potential to become a good quarterback in the NFL.
