1. Zach Tom

It's no longer a question of if Zach Tom will win a starting job, it's now about which position he plays. Tom began training camp by regularly getting the first-team reps ahead of Yosh Nijman at right tackle. This isn't surprising based on Tom's impressive rookie season.

Earlier this week, Tom started at center ahead of Josh Myers, which is something to watch closely.

As Matt LaFleur determines which five offensive linemen to start in the season opener, we can safely assume that David Bakhtiari, Elgton Jenkins, and Jon Runyan Jr. will be among them. Tom seems to have secured his spot, too.

That makes for a fascinating competition between Josh Myers and Yosh Nijman. Which player can win their respective starting job, allowing Tom to take the other?

Tom can play both. He proved himself at tackle last season and played center in college. If the Packers are unsure about Myers' consistency -- he has been involved in four botched snaps at training camp already -- starting Tom at center would make sense.

Following an impressive rookie season, Tom has made a good start to the summer. He has probably already done enough to land a starting job one week into training camp.
