We have an order to go in, okay? So I got stuck with the very easy and non-controversial fullback and quarterback roster projection posts. We'll get to the fun stuff next week, and I'm sure our wide receiver and tight end posts are going to stir up plenty of debate. This one is straight-forward, though. There's only going to be one fullback, and you know who he is.

Kuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhn.

Starter: John Kuhn - He's one of the best-paid fullbacks in the league, and for good reason. He's a very solid lead blocker, he's very solid in pass protection, he has good hands, and he can get you one yard when you need it on 3rd and 1 or 3rd and goal. John Kuhn is no world beater, but the fans love him because he runs hard and straight ahead. For some reason, we take to these guys. He's a fan favorite for the same reason Mike Alstott and Jerome Bettis became fan favorites, even if he's not in the category of either for natural talent.

Job security: Ironclad - The Packers don't have any reason to bring in anyone to challenge Kuhn for his job. He's the man for the foreseeable future.

Practice squad or PUP: Jon Hoese - Hoese was re-signed to the practice squad last December, and might be there from the beginning of the year this season.

Cut: Nic Cooper - But maybe there's a practice squad spot for him? Who knows.

Roster spots remaining: 47
