Packers 2018 Training Camp | Ticket King Green Bay

Packers Training Camp
We are less than a month away from the start of Packers training camp. With the departure of Nelson, injuries that will extend into the start of the season, and the change of certain coaching positions in Packerland, there are enough “unknowns” to keep fans wonderin how the team will perform in 2018. Here are some questions that need to be answered before week one of the regular season.

Who will open the year at right tackle? Yes, Brian Bulaga is injured yet again. He will miss the first part of the season so that means the Packers will have to go without him for some time. Who will play in his place is the question. Jason Spriggs, the former second round draft choice, will open camp in that spot by default, but there is no guarantee he starts the season as the right tackle. He could get competition from just about anybody. Will it be Cole Madison, to Byron Bell, to Justin McCray that takes that spot? The plan right now is for Spriggs to play week one, if he can prove himself worthy.

Who will play right guard? Speaking of Madison, the Packers did draft him with the intention of being the long-term solution at right guard. They did not specify that he would start in that spot on week one. They will give him every opportunity in camp to be that starter. If he isn’t ready yet, the job could fall to the likes of McCray or Lucas Patrick. Stay tuned, because this will be one of the highlights of Packers camp.

Who will be the fourth wide receiver? Unless they make some last minute adjustments, the Packers three starting receivers will be Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, and Geronimo Allison. After that, it is anybody’s game, literally. All three of the Packers rookies, Equanimeous St. Brown, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and J’Mon Moore, could win the job. The return specialist, Trevor Davis, could be that guy. DeAngelo Yancey could be the forth receiver. Don’t forget about the big tall Michael Clark either, who the coaches really like. This will be a good one.

What about the backup quarterback?. During the offseason, the Packers traded cornerback Damarious Randall to the Browns for quarterback DeShone Kizer, who was the Browns first-round draft choice just a year ago. The battle may be between Kizer and Hundley, but rookie undrafted free agent Tim Boyle could win the number 3 job, and force the coaches to decide between Kizer or Hundley. My prediction is Kizer wins, and Hundley is traded or released.

What about those cornerbacks? The Packers biggest need this offseason was at cornerback, so they addressed it. They spent their first two draft choices on Jaire Alexander from Louisville and Josh Jackson from Iowa. They also brought in Tramon Williams in free agency and brought back Davon House. In addition, they get back second-round draft choice from a year ago Kevin King healthy. Any two of those five could open the year as the starters.

And for the highlight of Packers camp, who will be the safety that takes a walk? The starting safeties will be Ha-Ha Clinton Dix and Josh Jones. Quentin Rollins may switch to safety as well and is likely to win a roster spot regardless. That leaves two spots open at safety. Jerome Whitehead, Kentrell Brice, and Marwin Evans will battle like there is no tomorrow because, for one of them, there literally is no tomorrow. One of them will be cut. The question is who? This is going to be the battle of Packers camp right here.
