Packers 2022 roster preview: Josh Myers enters Year 2
When healthy, Josh Myers looked solid as the Green Bay Packers‘ starting center in 2021.
The Packers will need Myers to build on an impressive rookie season.
It will be important for the 2021 second-round pick to stay healthy. He has Pro Bowl potential in the Packers’ offense.
Myers was limited to just six games due to injury, but he did start all of them. According to Pro Football Reference, he played 293 offensive snaps in 2021.
2021 season review
Myers played about as well as the Packers could have hoped in his rookie season. He was never going to put in an All-Pro season as Corey Linsley did the year prior, but Myers looked comfortable at center.
He convincingly won the starting job over the summer, and it never seemed to be in much doubt.
Injuries were the issue for Myers in his rookie season. A knee injury cost him 10 games. He returned in time for the Week 18 game versus the Detroit Lions, then played every offensive snap in the playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Myers impressed in the games he did play, but due to the injuries, he missed some valuable reps in his rookie year.
Will he make the roster?
Yes. Myers will be the Packers’ starting center.
What to expect in 2022
While the Packers did draft three offensive linemen, it’s unlikely there will be much competition at center. Myers was picked in the second round last year for a reason.
When healthy, Myers played well and showed his potential last year.
Availability is the most important thing for Myers in his second season. He had awful injury luck last year.
The Packers have a deep and talented offensive line, and Myers will have an important role to play this season. The hope is that he can continue his development and build on a solid rookie year.
