Which five Green Bay Packers players could have breakout seasons in 2022?

With the second week of preseason here, we’re just weeks away from the return of meaningful games. For the Green Bay Packers, they enter the season with a number of potential breakout candidates.

That could be a second-year player taking the next step to become an important starter. It could be a key player becoming a superstar at their position.

For this article, rookies haven’t been included. Only players with at least one season of experience with the Packers.

Let’s look at five potential breakout candidates for the Packers in 2022.

5. C Josh Myers

Injuries limited center Josh Myers to just six games last season. In that time, he quietly performed well and looked comfortable playing an important role along the offensive line.

The Packers passed up on Creed Humphrey in the 2021 NFL Draft, selecting Myers a pick earlier. Humphrey had an excellent first year, making the PFWA All-Rookie Team.

But Myers now has an opportunity to prove himself. He started the preseason in perfect fashion, putting together a dominant performance against the San Francisco 49ers.

While there is some uncertainty about who will start at guard this season, the Packers’ starting center is set. And Myers could have an excellent second year in Green Bay.
