C Matt Skura

It seemed the Packers had plenty of options at the interior offensive line positions, but they then surprisingly cut Ben Braden and Cole Van Lanen will keeping Jake Hanson. Hanson made two big mistakes in the final preseason game. One, a poor snap that Jordan Love had to fall on, the other not getting the snap off in time and leading to a delay-of-game penalty.

It now appears Hanson is the Packers’ backup center behind rookie Josh Myers.

Perhaps the Packers could take a look at veteran Matt Skura. The 28-year-old spent the past four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, starting 51 of the 54 games he played, with the majority of those snaps coming at center. He also has the versatility to play at guard.

Overall, Hanson was OK in the preseason so it’s possible the Packers are comfortable with him stepping in should Myers miss any time. However, Skura would give them a more experienced option.

He has plenty of starting experience and could step right in at center if Myers suffered an injury. Skura also offers the positional versatility the Packers love to have along the offensive line.

If they are looking for some more experience at the backup center spot, Skura could be a good option.
