The Green Bay Packers’ preseason opener is complete. Which players will make the 53-man roster?
With the opening preseason contest in the books, we have learned more about this Green Bay Packers team.
While we didn’t see any game action from key starters on both sides of the ball, there were plenty of opportunities for young players and those on the roster bubble.
So, let’s dive in. Following the Packers’ preseason game versus the San Francisco 49ers, here are my latest 53-man roster predictions.
Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love
Jordan Love’s performance in the preseason opener was just OK. We saw some spectacular throws, including on both of his touchdown passes, but he also missed some easy ones.
Love didn’t deserve three interceptions. One bounced off of Tyler Davis’ hands, while the second was effectively taken away by the defensive back from Romeo Doubs.
Perhaps the surprise of the night came from Danny Etling, who put in a strong performance in the second half.
This doesn’t change anything regarding the 53-man roster. The Packers will likely keep just two quarterbacks. But Etling will be a player to watch versus the New Orleans Saints. Can he force the Packers to make room for a third quarterback?
