What did we learn from the second practice of Green Bay Packers training camp?
Day 2 of training camp is in the books. What are the top three takeaways for the Green Bay Packers?
On Wednesday, wide receivers Romeo Doubs and Allen Lazard impressed as the offense got off to a good start.
What did we learn on Thursday?
1. Zach Tom gets starting reps at left tackle
At this stage, we don’t know when starting tackles David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins will be cleared to return from injury. In the meantime, Green Bay has to prepare for the possibility of starting with two different players at tackle.
On Thursday, rookie Zach Tom got an opportunity.
According to Bill Huber of Sports Illustrated, Tom was the No. 1 left tackle with Yosh Nijman moved to right tackle.
Tom has plenty of experience at left tackle from college. He also played at center and could be in contention for a starting job at guard this season. He can do a bit of everything.
According to Packers reporter Mike Clemens, Tom “looked pretty good” against star pass rusher Rashan Gary.
Going one-on-one with Gary isn’t a bad way to develop your game. He will need to play well to win that matchup.
It’s too early to take much away from the offensive line rotation. Matt LaFleur likely wants to get a look at everyone in multiple spots.
But it’s great to see Tom get an opportunity on Thursday.
