Packers Training Camp 2014 | Ticket King Inc.

Well, here we are, the 2014 season is upon us, and training camp has begun for our favorite team, the Green Bay Packers. Here are some of the position battles to watch entering camp.

Inside Linebacker- By default Brad Jones and A.J. Hawk currently stand as the starters at inside linebacker. Yes they do have experience, but they represent the weakest part of the Packers defense entering this season. What everyone would like is for one of the young project linebackers- Sam Barrington, Nate Palmer, Jamari Lattimore, Andy Mulumba, somebody, anybody, to step up and outplay them, therefore taking a starting position away from one of them. Both have had their chances, and both haven’t shown much of anything.

Cornerback- Defensive back is the deepest position for the Packers on this side of the ball. Now Sam Shields is a rising star and one of the best deep ball cover corners in the league so his job is nice and safe. However it is no secret that Tramon Williams is getting older, and a drop in play has led to his job as the starter opposite of Shields being put in jeopardy. Casey Hayward is returning after n injury-plagued second season and could push for the job. Devon House is another candidate to bench Williams.

Defensive End- We know that Mike Daniels is going to start, and we know that B.J. Raji is going to start as well. But who will be the other defensive end? Datone Jones, the 2013 first round draft choice, has the inside track to the job. Don’t forget about Josh Boyd who played well last year as a rookie, and current rookie Khyri Thornton, a third round draft choice back in May.

Tight End- This is the most up in the air out of all of the position battles. Every tight end in camp is competing for this job, and every tight end in camp could be left off the roster. Colt Lyerla has been excellent so far this off season and could potentially be the next Antonio Gates.

Third Wide Receiver- This is a two horse race and will be the most epic battle in camp. Competing are former un-drafted free agent Jarrett Boykin and rookie second round draft choice Devonte Adams. Boykin is in his third season and had an excellent second season a year ago. Adams is a great talent who has the inside track.
