Ahead of training camp, let’s predict who will make the Green Bay Packers’ 53-man roster.
Now that organized team activities are complete and the three-day minicamp is over, the attention turns to training camp, which begins in six weeks. With that in mind, let’s predict the Green Bay Packers‘ final 53-man roster based on what we know so far.
The time for changing the coaching staff and the 90-man roster is mostly over. While there will still be roster additions made throughout the summer, the biggest moves have now been made. It’s now over to head coach Matt LaFleur, his coaching staff, and general manager Brian Gutekunst, to figure out how to best prepare the team for the new season.
Throughout the summer, training camp battles will determine who wins starting jobs, and also which players make the final 53-man roster and who misses out.
This summer, the Packers could have a number of training camp battles, from the backup quarterback position, to wide receiver, tight end and starting positions along the offensive line. It should make for an interesting month or so before the 2019 season begins, and will also give LaFleur and Gutekunst some difficult decisions to make.
Which players will make the final roster at the start of September? Here are my predictions ahead of training camp.
The Packers will likely keep two quarterbacks on the roster, so the question at training camp is whether Tim Boyle can win the number two job ahead of DeShone Kizer.
I predict Kizer will win the competition and remain Green Bay’s backup entering the regular season.
