Packers 2013 Training Camp Preview: Projected Depth Chart

The Packers' depth chart for week 1 of the 2013 season is projected by APC's staff.


This morning, we broke down the full projection of the Green Bay Packers' 53-man roster, as predicted by five Acme Packing Company writers. You've now seen who we think will make the team, but we have further broken it out into a depth chart look that gives you a little more insight into how we think the roles will be assigned among those players.

There you have it - that's the way we are projecting the Packers' depth chart for week 1 as training camp begins. Also, as practices and preseason games help the roster to take shape, we will update this projection.

Now, for what you may have been curious about, here are the individual projections from each of the five APC writers who contributed to the projections. As you'll see, there is quite a bit of disagreement among us. Furthermore, I already have a few that I would change after looking closer at the roster breakdowns - for example, I'd drop Jarrett Bush in favor of Josh Boyd. But we're stuck with the projections as they are, so feel free to criticize and analyze as you see fit.

Where are we off base? Also, feel free to tell us which of us you think has the most accurate or best roster prediction. I promise, we have thick skin. Have at it!
