The Green Bay Packers added these players this offseason, but they aren't guaranteed to make the 53-man roster.

Just because a player was added this offseason, it doesn't necessarily mean they are a lock to make the Green Bay Packers' roster.

It's unlikely the entire Packers draft class will make the roster, and even some free-agent additions don't make the 53 some years. Devin Funchess and Blake Bortles are examples of offseason signings who never played a game for the Packers.

The Packers have brought in several new players this offseason, including 13 via the draft. Not all of them will make the roster.

Which recent additions are already cut candidates in Green Bay?

3. Tarvarius Moore, S

Darnell Savage is a roster lock at safety. Rudy Ford is almost certain to make the roster. Anthony Johnson Jr. was a draft pick and has starting potential, so there's a good chance he also makes the 53.

Then there is competition for the final spots. The Packers will likely keep five or six safeties, so the positional battle is on.

Free-agent addition Tarvarius Moore faces competition from Jonathan Owens, Dallin Leavitt, and Innis Gaines.

Would it be surprising if the Packers kept Savage, Ford, Johnson, Owens, and Leavitt, with Moore missing out? Absolutely not. Savage would start alongside either Ford or Owens, Johnson would be a young player to develop, while Leavitt is a core special teams player.

Moore plays special teams and could contribute as a backup safety. Is that enough for a roster spot?
