4. Curtis Bolton

An ACL injury cost Curtis Bolton the entire 2019 season but he showed a lot of promise prior to that. Bolton was a star during the preseason, playing well enough to put his name in the conversation for a starting spot next to Blake Martinez in the season opener.

But as a result of a preseason injury, Bolton didn’t get a chance to build on his strong performances during the regular season.

Assuming Bolton is back to 100 percent, this could be his year. And it starts with training camp. Bolton has another great opportunity to earn a key role in Mike Pettine’s defense. If he can build on last year’s preseason performances once practices get underway, we could be looking at the Packers’ training camp MVP.

3. AJ Dillon

The Packers’ run defense struggled last year, but they’ll need to be a lot better right away in practice. AJ Dillon is a strong runner and tough to tackle. Many running backs adjust to the NFL quickly, and of the entire Packers’ rookie class, Dillon could make the biggest impact this year.

It remains to be seen how many snaps Dillon will get compared to Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams in the regular season, but he can be one of the stars of training camp.
