5. Carrington Valentine is one of Packers' top five cornerbacks by Week 1

Talking of players who stood out during the offseason workout program, say hello to rookie cornerback Carrington Valentine.

"I thought CV has done an unbelievable job. You can really see the body movement skills that he possesses, and he's been working hard," said Packers head coach Matt LaFleur. "He certainly has the talent. It's on him to put it all together and go out there and do it in the preseason."

Valentine impressed throughout the offseason, even when matched up against Packers starters like Romeo Doubs.

Green Bay's top four at cornerback will be Jaire Alexander, Rasul Douglas, Keisean Nixon, and Eric Stokes (when healthy). But there is an opening for the final couple of spots on the roster.

Valentine is in the mix. He will need to win a competition featuring Corey Ballentine, Shemar Jean-Charles, and Kiondre Thomas. But Valentine is off to a great start and has shown his potential as a backup cornerback in Joe Barry's defense.

The real test begins once the pads are on. But it's hard to argue with the impact Valentine has made so far this summer, and he could begin the regular season as the Packers' No. 5 cornerback. Not bad at all.
