Defensive line (6)

Kenny Clark, Devonte Wyatt, T.J. Slaton, Colby Wooden, Karl Brooks, Jonathan Ford

The Packers could keep just five interior defensive linemen, but a couple of roster spots opened up, allowing them to keep backup nose tackle Jonathan Ford.

Ford is the only lineman not guaranteed to make the roster. It would be a huge shock if any of the other five weren't included in the 53.

Edge rusher (5)

Preston Smith, Lukas Van Ness, Kingsley Enagbare, Justin Hollins, Brenton Cox Jr.

PUP: Rashan Gary

Bill Huber of Sports Illustrated reported that Rashan Gary and Eric Stokes will begin training camp on the PUP list. They can be activated at any time, and we're still several weeks away from the 53-man roster being set.

However, there's a chance both players will begin the regular season on the PUP list. That opens up a spot for undrafted rookie Brenton Cox to make the 53-man roster.

Inside linebacker (5)

De'Vondre Campbell, Quay Walker, Isaiah McDuffie, Eric Wilson, Tariq Carpenter

Gary and Stokes starting on the PUP list could also allow the Packers to keep Tariq Carpenter on the 53. He won't get many snaps on defense, but Carpenter became a valuable special teams contributor in the second half of his rookie season.
