Grant DuBose, WR

The Packers drafted Grant DuBose in the seventh round back in April. Based on that, we would've assumed that he would be a frontrunner in the race for one of the Packers' final roster spots at wide receiver.

However, missing the entire offseason program due to injury hasn't helped his chances.

"The best ability is availability."

For starters, DuBose has missed vital practice time. Those valuable reps are crucial for a rookie receiver adjusting to a new offense. It's also important to build a connection with Jordan Love. DuBose now has to play catch-up once training camp begins.

It also doesn't help that many other wide receivers on the roster bubble have impressed during the offseason program, notably undrafted rookie Malik Heath.

Heath's performances earned him snaps with the first-team offense, a possible sign of the Packers' growing confidence in him.

With Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, Jayden Reed, Samori Toure, and Dontayvion Wicks making up the Packers' top five at wide receiver, DuBose's shot at making the roster rests on winning the WR6 job.

Having missed OTAs and minicamp, the pressure is on the rookie to make a quick start to training camp to ensure he is ahead on the depth chart.
