Offensive line (10)
David Bakhtiari, Elgton Jenkins, Jon Runyan Jr., Josh Myers, Lucas Patrick, Billy Turner, Dennis Kelly, Ben Braden, Royce Newman, Cole Van Lanen
David Bakhtiari won’t be available for the Packers at the start of the regular season. That seems just about guaranteed at this point. But if the team believes he can return before Week 6, he will likely make the initial 53-man roster. If not, he could start the season on the PUP list.
The Packers have excellent depth across the line. Rookies Royce Newman and Cole Van Lanen have both been impressive in the preseason, which is a great sign moving forward.
There will be some reshuffling while Bakthiari is out, but the Packers have a talented group and plenty of depth across the offensive line.
Defensive line (6)
Kenny Clark, Kingsley Keke, Dean Lowry, Tyler Lancaster, TJ Slaton, Jack Heflin
Green Bay’s defensive line depth looks stronger this season. Kenny Clark is a star, and the arrival of TJ Slaton could allow him to move about a bit more. Slaton could see plenty of snaps at nose tackle, and he’s looked good over the summer.
The Packers need Kingsley Keke to build on a promising 2020 season. We know what to expect from Dean Lowry and Tyler Lancaster.
The team should seriously consider keeping Jack Heflin after a couple of impressive performances in the preseason.
