Packers Training Camp 2017 | Ticket King Green Bay

This was “move in week” for Packers players at St. Norbert College, which means training camp is underway for the Green Bay Packers. Like most teams, they have some questions to answer in camp.

How will Brett Hundley look in year three? In the fifth round of the 2015 NFL draft, the Packers selected quarterback Brett Hundley from UCLA. Hundley is one of the most unique quarterback prospects in recent memory. The Packers have gone to great lengths to correct the most glaring issues Hundley brought to Green Bay. How will he look in year three? If he plays well when called up, and that means in training camp too, he could fetch multiple draft choices next offseason from a quarterback hungry team.

How will the running backs line up behind Ty Montgomery? The Packers have needed to inject new life into the running back unit for a while now. It looks like mission accomplished. Gone is Eddie Lacy, and an enigma known as James Starks. In comes Ty Montgomery, who was moved into the position during the season last year and played well. Behind Montgomery, we five rookies competing for the next spot. It’s three draft choices, and two high quality undrafted free agents. Draft choices Aaron Jones, Jamal Williams, and Devante Mays will get first priority, but that doesn't mean much here. William Stanback and Kalif Phillips, two good undrafted free agents, have just as good of a shot to make this roster as the others. This will be the best competition in camp.

How about the wide receiver position? The Green Bay Packers entered the offseason with the deepest collection of receivers in the league. We know that Davante Adams, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Geronimo Allison (Who, by the way is going to sit out week one for drug issues,) will make this team. Who comes up after that four? Five guys, Jeff Janis, Trevor Davis, Max McCaffrey, Malachi Dupree, and DeAngelo Yancey will all be competing for essentially two spots.

How will the new tight ends look? The Packers are once again starting to take the tight end position seriously. After signing Jared Cook last offseason, he played well down the stretch, but was asking for too much money this offseason. The Packers dropped Cook and signed Martellus Bennett. A day later, Thompson went back into free agency and grabbed another tight end, Lance Kendricks, mostly for some depth at that position.

What about a rebuilt secondary, you ask? The Packers secondary got torched in 2016, especially the corners. To fix this, we have the top two draft choices from 2015, Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins returning to full health. In addition, the Packers released the often-injured Sam Shields, and replaced him with Davon House. They also added the mega-talented Kevin King from Washington in the draft. Will the secondary improve in 2017? Well, that can’t get much worse.
