Five Packers Roster Spots to Keep an Eye On in 2019 | Ticket King Green Bay

The average fan may not realize this, but NFL position battles begin long before Training Camp every year. With that said, here are some position battles to watch regarding the Packers this summer.

Who will be the backup quarterback? When called upon in 2018, DeShone Kizer looked lost. However, it’s a new system and Kizer is a year older. He will have to compete this summer with Tim Boyle, who looked decent last August during the preseason. Manny Wilkens is a long shot to even make the Packers practice squad.

How will the tight ends stack up? By default, Jimmy Graham begins the summer number one of the depth chart. But that could change. We know what Marcedes Lewis is, however second-year former undrafted free agent Robert Tonyan and rookie Jace Sternberger could very well end up one and two on the depth chart by season’s end.

What about the right side of the offensive line? Right now we know that the left tackle will be David Bakhtiari and the center will be Corey Linsley. They are two of the best in the business. We can also assume Billy Turner will be the left guard. The right guard and tackle are anyone’s guess. They have a host of players competing for both spots, too many to name.

Who will be the third wide receiver? Last season, the Packers made a trio of high-ceiling selections in the draft by picking up St. Brown, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and J’Mon Moore. Brown and Scantling emerged early in 2018, and Moore suffered through a rough rookie season. However, it is way too early to give up on Moore, so all three are in play for the slot receiver in 2019.

Who will be the other defensive end? We know that Kenny Clark will be the nose tackle and Mike Daniels will be one of the defensive ends. Montravius Adams begins the summer as the other defensive end, but that could change. James Looney, Dean Lowry, and rookie Kinglsey Keke are all competing with Adams for that spot.
