Packers depth chart: Secondary

Cornerbacks: Jaire Alexander, Rasul Douglas, Eric Stokes, Keisean Nixon, Shemar Jean-Charles, Corey Ballentine, Carrington Valentine

Eric Stokes' return from injury will help the cornerback depth, and the Packers also drafted Carrington Valentine on Day 3. Green Bay has three excellent starters in Jaire Alexander, Rasul Douglas, and Stokes, and good depth with plenty of competition for the final roster spots.

Safeties: Darnell Savage, Rudy Ford, Tarvarius Moore, Dallin Leavitt, Anthony Johnson Jr., Tariq Carpenter, Innis Gaines

Despite having solid depth at safety, who will start? Darnell Savage will likely be one of the Packers' two starters at safety, but it's unclear who will join him. Rudy Ford is likely the frontrunner, but he could face competition from Tarvarius Moore and rookie seventh-round pick Anthony Johnson Jr.

What we do know is that Green Bay has a lot of excellent special teams contributors at safety.

Packers depth chart: Special teams

Kicker: Anders Carlson, Parker White

Anders Carlson is the Packers' No. 1 kicker as things stand after being drafted on Day 3, but he will need to earn the job over the summer.

Punter: Pat O'Donnell

There should be no changes here. Pat O'Donnell had a solid first season as the Packers' punter and there's no need to replace him.

Long snapper: Matt Orzech, Jack Coco

The Packers have two long snappers under contract, but it's likely Matt Orzech will be the choice after Green Bay signed him in free agency.

Kick/punt returner: Keisean Nixon

Keisean Nixon was a first-team All-Pro as a returner in 2022. Jayden Reed can return punts and kicks, but it's Nixon's job.
