1. Right tackle

One of the Packers' biggest positional battles entering training camp was at right tackle. Except there never really was much competition.

Second-year Zach Tom began camp as the starting right tackle and has held that spot ever since. One of the few times Yosh Nijman started at right tackle was to allow Tom to get reps at center.

It seems Tom is clearly ahead of Nijman. The Packers did give Tom reps at center, but that has changed this week. Tom is almost certainly the starting right tackle moving forward.

Green Bay listed Tom as the starting right tackle on the team's first unofficial depth chart.

"Zach Tom's been doing a really great job at right tackle. He's smart, he knows what he's doing. He just keeps building those days and being consistent," said Jordan Love.

Tom has built on an impressive rookie campaign this summer. He impressed as a backup last season, showing why he deserved the opportunity to start in 2023, and Tom has made the most of his opportunity with the first-team offense throughout training camp.

Nijman gives the Packers a solid backup tackle at both positions, but it's Tom almost certainly set to start at right tackle this season.
