Predicting the Green Bay Packers’ final 53-man roster ahead of the third preseason game against the Oakland Raiders.
Another week into preseason, we continue to learn about this year’s Green Bay Packers team. But who will make the final 53-man roster?
After playing their opening two preseason contests at Lambeau Field, the Packers now hit the road for the final two games. Up next is a meeting with the Oakland Raiders on Friday night. Will the Packers get the opportunity to play against Jordy Nelson this week? If so, I’m sure Nelson will be keen to show the Packers why it was a mistake not to re-sign him.
The third preseason game is often the most important, and teams can use this as a chance to give more playing time to their starters ahead of the regular season opener, which is now just under three weeks away.
Time will tell whether the Packers decide to start the game with Aaron Rodgers, who made his preseason debut against the Pittsburgh Steelers last Thursday evening. Rodgers looked great, so I’d personally rest him for the remainder of preseason.
The Packers still have a few tough decisions to make at a number of positions, from quarterback to wide receiver and linebacker.
Who will make the Packers’ 53-man roster? Let’s begin with the quarterbacks and running backs.
