What are the three biggest surprises from Green Bay Packers training camp so far?
Already one week into training camp and just seven days away from the Green Bay Packers’ preseason opener, it’s a good time to review what’s happened so far.
Each practice counts, but the first week was always going to be important. It was the first opportunity for head coach Matt LaFleur to set the tone for how he wants his team to play and how they practice.
That includes LaFleur’s decision to keep practice outside when it rained, rather than moving indoors due to the weather. And he has also made it clear there’s a “zero tolerance policy” for players fighting during practice.
Before we look at the three biggest surprises from the first week of training camp, let’s begin with an honorable mention.
And this goes to third-year defensive tackle Montravius Adams who, according to various reports, has been a standout performer at training camp.
Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine even went as far to say he’s the most improved player from 2018.
“If I had to vote somebody or say who’s most improved from a year ago, it would be Montravius,” Pettine said earlier this week, according to Wes Hodkiewicz of Packers.com.
It’s great news for the Packers defense, and Adams’ play could earn him a starting job along the defensive line this season.
