The Green Bay Packers have made a handful of moves over the first week of free agency, and the team’s roster looks a bit different than it did seven days ago.
Now that much of the craziness of the past week has died down, we have a general idea of what the team’s roster will look like heading into the NFL Draft. Several positions have changed considerably since the 2016 season ended, and we at APC are taking a guess at what the team’s depth chart looks like at the present time, at least according to how the coaches might view it rather than how we assess the roster.
That is the reason you’ll see a handful of specific names in place — like Don Barclay in the starting lineup at right guard, for example. This is also not how the depth chart will shake out by the time the season starts; there is still the NFL Draft and all of training camp to go. For now, though, this will help identify where the needs are on the roster.
