Three Brian Gutekunst draft picks who may struggle to make the Green Bay Packers’ 53-man roster.
Training camp is just around the corner, and there will be plenty of competition across the board for the Green Bay Packers.
Like any offseason, the Packers have added a lot of new players to the roster, both via the NFL Draft and free agency.
At the end of training camp, general manager Brian Gutekunst will need to trim the roster down to 53 players, leading to many challenging decisions.
And that can include former draft picks.
Gutekunst has a good track record in the draft, having selected Jaire Alexander, Elgton Jenkins, Rashan Gary, and Darnell Savage in recent years. Last season, he picked Eric Stokes, Josh Myers, and Royce Newman — all three are already starters.
However, not every pick works out. Gutekunst has also missed on plenty of players.
Training camp gets underway later this month, and the Packers will also play three preseason games. Plenty of time for players on the roster bubble to impress and show why they should make the roster. But there will be some tough decisions for Gutekunst to make.
Here’s a look at three of Gutekunst’s draft picks who may be cut before the start of the regular season.
