The Green Bay Packers open coaching camp on July 25 at Ray Nitschke Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Here’s a 53-man roster projection:
QUARTERBACK (three): Aaron Rodgers, DeShone Kizer, Tim Boyle
Neither Kizer nor Boyle stood out throughout the offseason practices, but possibly that is since they’re nonetheless mastering new coach Matt LaFleur’s offense. For Kizer, it is his third method in his 3 NFL seasons. Boyle’s arm strength earned him a spot on the roster final year. Now he desires to take his game to an additional level.
Operating BACK (three): Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams, Dexter Williams
LaFleur’s offense is tailor-produced for Jones, who can excel in the outdoors zone scheme and as a receiver. If he can keep wholesome, he can lastly be the lead back with Jamaal Williams as the No. two. The rookie Dexter Williams was 1 of just two talent-position players whom GM Brian Gutekunst took in the draft, so appear for him to stick.
FULLBACK (1): Danny Vitale
The muscle-packed Vitale got a ton of reps in the offseason practices, a clear indication that LaFleur plans to use a fullback.
WIDE RECEIVER (7): Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown, Jake Kumerow, Trevor Davis, J’Mon Moore
Appear for Allison to move into the slot function with MVS as the second starter on the outdoors. Moore struggled with his hands in the offseason practices, and his spot is tenuous, particularly if the Packers preserve Davis for his kick-return potential. Moore, the 2018 fourth-round choose, desires a sturdy camp and preseason.
TIGHT Finish (four): Jimmy Graham, Robert Tonyan, Jace Sternberger, Marcedes Lewis
Count on Tonyan’s offseason function with 49ers All-Pro tight finish George Kittle to spend off. He could be the No. two tight finish in the passing game. If Sternberger can choose up the offense a tiny more quickly than he has shown, possibly they could move on from Lewis, even though his blocking potential plus the $500,000 signing bonus he received most likely secured his roster spot.
Probably Alex Light could unseat Spriggs as a backup tackle. Cole Madison, who returned following sitting out the complete 2018 season, likely could use a year on the practice squad.
DEFENSIVE LINE (five): Kenny Clark, Dean Lowry, Montravius Adams, Kingsley Keke, Tyler Lancaster
Lancaster played effectively at the finish of final season and for now tends to make the group following the release of veteran Mike Daniels on Wednesday.
Outdoors LINEBACKER (five): Preston Smith, Za’Darius Smith, Rashan Gary, Kyler Fackrell, Reggie Gilbert
That Fackrell, final season’s group sack leader (10.five), could be the fourth-very best edge-rushing solution this year speaks to the overhaul at this position, with the two Smiths replacing Clay Matthews and Nick Perry.
INSIDE LINEBACKER (three): Blake Martinez, Oren Burks, James Crawford
Specific-teams coordinator Shawn Mennenga desires a guy such as Crawford on his units. Rookie Ty Summers would be the subsequent solution if the Packers preserve 4.
CORNERBACK (six): Jaire Alexander, Kevin King, Tramon Williams, Josh Jackson, Ka’dar Hollman, Tony Brown
The Packers want to see King and Alexander as their outdoors corners, which would let Williams and Jackson to play inside, but King desires to prove that he can keep wholesome following finishing his very first two seasons on injured reserve.
Security (four): Adrian Amos, Darnell Savage Jr., Raven Greene, Natrell Jamerson
A single way or an additional, it is difficult to visualize Josh Jones ending up on the group following his offseason techniques to attempt to get traded or released, and Jamerson’s versatility (he can play each cornerback and security) could make it less difficult for the group to component techniques with the talented but mercurial Jones.
SPECIALIST (three): Mason Crosby, JK Scott, Hunter Bradley
Crosby faces genuine competitors from Sam Ficken, who would be a less expensive kicking solution at $495,000 than Crosby at $three.six million.
