On Friday evening, the Green Bay Packers host the New Orleans Saints for their second preseason game.

The two teams held joint practices this week, and they will now meet at Lambeau Field.

Here are three players to watch for the Packers:

3. QB Jordan Love

Jordan Love had an up-and-down preseason opener, and he didn’t get much help from his receivers, with two drops turning into interceptions.

Love has responded well in practice this week.

He now gets an opportunity to improve on last week’s preseason performance. He got a little unlucky against the 49ers, but he also made too many mistakes.

Love is the potential future QB1 in Green Bay. The team will have to decide whether to pick up his fifth-year option next offseason.

These preseason snaps are huge for Love.

2. WR Romeo Doubs

Just like last week, Romeo Doubs is one of the top players to watch for the Packers in the preseason.

Doubs didn’t have a perfect game in the opener versus San Francisco, but he did come up with three catches for 45 yards and a touchdown. There were plenty of positives to take away from his performance.

It’s all about “stacking success”, and the Packers will hope for another good evening from their fourth-round pick.

1. EGDE Kingsley Enagbare

After a slow start to the summer, Kingsley Enagbare has stepped up in a big way over the past week. Enagbare has put an end to any doubts about his place on the 53-man roster.

He dominated in the preseason opener with a sack, tackle for loss, and two quarterback hits. He’s been just as impressive on the practice field this week. There have been many tweets like this one during practices this week.

The way he’s playing, Enagbare could become the Packers’ EDGE3.

Another strong preseason performance will help his chances.
