1. Lane Taylor
Last week, I had Elgton Jenkins in this spot. Now I’m putting Lane Taylor in here for the same reason. Taylor is battling for his roster spot and I feel Jenkins is now taking the lead.
Despite two holding calls (one may have been mistakenly put on him), Jenkins continued his solid play against the Ravens. Should we see a similar split in playing time this week with Jenkins and Taylor with the rest of the starters, it could be a sign the team is ready to move on.
Taylor is the more expensive player of the two and if Jenkins has even a slight edge on Taylor, you would have to think the team would go with Jenkins and let Taylor go.
Jenkins is tailor (no pun intended) made for LaFleur’s zone system and is easy looking like the best 2019 draft pick so far. If Taylor doesn’t come out and start blowing opposing linemen off the ball, his time in a Green Bay uniform could be up.
Should the worst for Taylor occur and the Packers move on from him, I don’t expect he’d be unemployed for very long. Taylor has been a solid player when healthy and losing his spot would have more to do with Jenkins’ potential than Taylor’s play.
