Which positions will the Green Bay Packers have the biggest improvements at in 2019?
In less than five weeks, the Green Bay Packers will take on their oldest rivals in the NFL’s season opener. And in a year that could see the Packers return to the postseason and contend for a championship, they should be improved at multiple positions.
Before we predict the top three most improved positions, let’s look at a couple of honorable mentions.
One is cornerback. It’s a position the Packers remain mostly the same as in 2018, but with so much young talent in the secondary, there’s a good chance many of them will make big improvements this season.
The Packers will have high expectations for second-year cornerbacks Jaire Alexander, Josh Jackson and Tony Brown. Also, rookie Ka’Dar Hollman has been one of the standout performers so far at training camp. If Kevin King stays healthy, the Packers will have a ton of talent at cornerback.
Another honorable mention goes to the wide receivers. Again, the group is similar to last year, but it’s the return of an injured starter (Geronimo Allison) and the development of second-year players (Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown) that should lead to significant improvements. Matt LaFleur’s offense also helps.
Now, let’s predict the three most improved position groups in the 2019 season.
