We’ve discussed the possibility of Darnell Savage spending more time at slot corner, but Chandon Sullivan should enter training camp as the frontrunner to take over Tramon Williams’ role.

Sullivan stepped up last season when the Packers needed him. While Josh Jackson and Tony Brown didn’t go onto play as many snaps as expected, Sullivan was one of the Packers’ biggest surprises on defense. He was effectively the fourth cornerback on the roster behind Williams, Jaire Alexander, and Kevin King, but he impressed as a backup.

Sullivan forced a couple of turnovers, making an interception and forcing a fumble.

But he now enters 2020 with greater expectations than a year ago. And with Williams gone and still unsigned, Sullivan could be a Week 1 starter along with Alexander and King. There is some added pressure that comes along with that and greater responsibility. Can Sullivan make the step up from a backup to a starter?

Sullivan will also need to win the job at training camp. Savage could be competing for snaps at slot corner, as could Josh Jackson.

If Sullivan can build on a strong 2019 season, he can enter Week 1 as one of the top three cornerbacks on the roster and a key part of the secondary.
