When it comes to offensive linemen, less can be more. If an offensive lineman is doing their job well, they can go unnoticed. It’s when they are regularly getting beat that it can lead to people taking notice.

The center position isn’t exactly the easiest to put in a standout performance at practice, either.

So the lack of buzz surrounding second-year Josh Myers is hardly a bad thing.

Still, it would be encouraging to hear Myers making progress after an injury-hit rookie season. While he looked solid in the middle of the offensive line last year, Myers only featured in six games.

In an offensive line potentially without David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins for the time being, the Packers need their young players to step up and provide solid play. Myers showed he could do that last season. He just needs to stay healthy.

The preseason will give us a better indication of Myers’ development, assuming he starts and plays meaningful snaps versus the San Francisco 49ers this week.

As noted, it isn’t easy to stand out at practice at the center position unless you’re putting in dominant performances. That said, it is somewhat surprising how little we’ve heard about Myers this summer.
