Packers 2016 Depth Chart Projection for Week 1

APC takes a stab at the pecking order at the Packers’ various positions for Sunday’s game.

NFL: Green Bay Packers-Training Camp Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers kick off the 2016 season on Sunday afternoon against the Jacksonville Jaguars and now that we have a few days distance from the 53-man roster cut-down we can start to make sense of the team’s roster. We have put together a projected depth chart to account for the developments of the past several months, from the draft through training camp and all the way up to the latest roster moves this weekend.

Keep in mind this is just a projection, not a report of any formal depth chart announcement. The projected starter is listed first and in bold, followed by the backups in order.

This post will try to account for any injury issues present on the roster; for example, Jeff Janis and Trevor Davis both are nursing injuries (to a hand and a shoulder, respectively) and are therefore moved down the depth chart.
