With the Green Bay Packers’ preseason coming to an end, it’s time for the final 53-man roster predictions.

The next time the Green Bay Packers play a football game, it will be against the Minnesota Vikings in the regular season opener.

Sure, the preseason has been fun, but it’s almost time for the real football to return.

Over the past three weeks, we’ve learned a lot about the young players on the roster. Many have secured their spot on the 53-man roster already.

But general manager Brian Gutekunst still has a few challenging decisions to make on the roster bubble. How many wide receivers will he keep? Which cornerback takes the final spot?

Here’s my final attempt at predicting the initial 53.

Quarterbacks (2)

Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love

We start with something nice and straightforward. This hasn’t been in doubt all summer.

Jordan Love had an up-and-down preseason, although it was mostly positive. There were some errors along the way, but Love looks far more confident than we’ve seen in his first two seasons.

Love also made a few wow throws during the preseason. His decision-making has improved, too.

Should Love need to step in for a game like he did last season, the Packers should have confidence he can put in a good performance.
