We have a few changes to our 53-man roster prediction at the midpoint of the preseason schedule.
2017 Packers Roster Breakdown
Although the team has just one punter and one long-snapper on the roster, neither should feel comfortable just yet.
We think the Packers will focus on quality over quantity in their backup safeties to start 2017.
The Packers’ starting safeties are as good a duo as you’ll find in the NFL, but there looks to be great young depth behind them.
A rookie draft pick and a former Packer returning to Green Bay headline a talented group of prospects hoping to improve the cornerback unit in 2017.
The development of youth at cornerback is vital, but two new acquisitions hope to provide the group with improved effectiveness and consistency.
Acme Packing Company expects the Packers to retain four full-time inside linebackers from their 90-man roster.
Jake Ryan leads a unit that remains unremarkable on paper.
Let’s take a look at how the Packers D-Line could come together to begin 2017.
The Packers added a veteran and some youth to the competition on the D-line this offseason.
The biggest question is who replaces TJ Lang?
The Packers lost three of their top four interior linemen over the past 12 months, and have a youth movement behind their starters.
Acme Packing Company expects the Packers to retain three tight ends from their 90-man roster.
Martellus Bennett leads the way along with offseason addition Lance Kendricks.
Nelson, Adams and Cobb take the lead with Davis and Allison near at hand.
With seven returning wide receivers on this team, there is not a lot of room for new faces. Still, a few rookies look to make some noise.
The Packers added a whole bunch of rookies to the running back unit, which returns none of the tailbacks who started last year atop the depth chart.
APC continues to believe that the Packers will go back to only carrying two quarterbacks in 2017.
Green Bay needs to get Brett Hundley and company plenty of work in training camp this year for a variety of reasons.
With training camp set to begin in just under two months, here’s an early guess at what the Packers’ roster will look like in Week 1.
After the holiday weekend, we have each writer’s rankings here for your consumption.
How did APC arrange the Packers’ cornerbacks and receivers? Five players at those positions land in the teens in our roster ranking.
Where do Brett Hundley, Ladarius Gunter, and Jamaal Williams fall?
What do we make of Kyler Fackrell, Christian Ringo, and others? They fall into the next group on our roster countdown.
They may not be the most talented players on the roster, but the Packers are counting on them to stay healthy.
Green Bay saw a few key edge rushers sign elsewhere in free agency, leaving that unit in need of an infusion of talent in this year’s draft.
Two of Green Bay’s three specialists were additions last offseason and both will hit the market again this spring.
