The Green Bay Packers are one week into training camp, and we have already learned a lot about this team.

Jordan Love's performances give Packers fans plenty of reason for optimism. He has made some "wow" throws throughout the opening week, including one to breakout candidate Romeo Doubs.

There is still a lot for head coach Matt LaFleur and general manager Brian Gutekunst to figure out in the coming weeks, especially when joint practices and the preseason begin. But after one week, these three players have impressed.

Josiah Deguara's hopes of finally landing a full-time role on offense were dented when the Packers drafted Luke Musgrave and Tucker Kraft in the opening three rounds.

However, Deguara has shown he still has plenty to offer. His versatility will help him get on the field as the former third-round pick can play the H-back role in LaFleur's offense.

Musgrave's receiving ability is evident, but he still has a way to go with his blocking. Kraft has made a relatively quiet start to training camp, which is unsurprising for a rookie tight end. Patience is required.

But Deguara has been getting first-team reps, and his blocking ability will be needed in the absence of Marcedes Lewis. LaFleur thinks Deguara "absolutely" can take on a bigger role this season.

"He's a guy that has a lot of versatility in terms of whether he's in the backfield, whether he's in a wing position, we can split him out, so it's just him getting those opportunities and then taking advantage of them," said LaFleur, according to Bill Huber of Sports Illustrated.

Deguara is playing for a new contract this year. Even with Musgrave and Kraft entering the season with high expectations, the Packers need Deguara to take on a more significant role.
