Cornerback (5)

Jaire Alexander, Rasul Douglas, Keisean Nixon, Carrington Valentine, Corey Ballentine

PUP: Eric Stokes

The Packers have to feel great about their cornerback depth, and that's before they even get Eric Stokes back. Jaire Alexander and Rasul Douglas have dominated at training camp, while seventh-round rookie Carrington Valentine stole the headlines.

Valentine is going to earn snaps right away. He keeps making plays on the practice field and in the preseason. This is arguably the deepest cornerback group in the league, especially once Stokes returns.

Safety (5)

Darnell Savage, Rudy Ford, Jonathan Owens, Anthony Johnson, Dallin Leavitt

The Packers should still consider their options at safety, with nobody stepping up as the clear favorite to start alongside Darnell Savage. For now, Rudy Ford seems to be the frontrunner.

Anthony Johnson Jr. is a talented young player the Packers won't want to lose, and he can contribute on special teams. Dallin Leavitt should make the 53 as a core special teams player for the Packers. That means Tarvarius Moore could miss out.

Special teams (3)

Anders Carlson, Pat O'Donnell, Matt Orzech

The Packers are sticking with rookie kicker Anders Carlson through the ups and downs. Who will hold for him on kicks? Daniel Whelan could win the punting job ahead of Pat O'Donnell, which would make a salary cap saving, but we've gone with the experience of O'Donnell here.
