A Way, Way Too Early Roster and Depth Chart Prediction

The first day of the Green Bay Packers’ training camp is still over a month away. That means that predicting the final 53-man roster and depth chart is, frankly, pretty stupid. But it’s the time of the year when we have little to do but speculate. So, just for fun, let’s take a stab at it now. Back-ups will be in parentheses. Non-starting role players will be italicized. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Quarterbacks:

Aaron Rodgers (Brett Hundley)

Running Backs:

Eddie Lacy (James Starks, John Crockett)

Fullback:

Aaron Ripkowski

Tight Ends:

Jared Cook (Richard Rodgers, Kennard Backman)

Offensive Line:

David Bakhtiari, Josh Sitton, Corey Linsley, TJ Lang, Bryan Bulaga (JC Tretter, Jason Spriggs, Kyle Murphy, Lane Taylor, Don Barclay)

Wide Receivers:

Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb (Davante Adams, Ty Montgomery, Jeff Janis, Trevor Davis)

Defensive Line:

Mike Daniels, Kenny Clark, Letroy Guion (Dean Lowry, Christian Ringo)

*Mike Pennel does not count against the roster for the first four games of the season due to suspension. I suspect that Ringo will be waived to make room for Pennel when he returns).

Outside Linebackers:

Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers (Nick Perry, Datone Jones, Jayrone Elliott, Kyler Fackrell, Lerentee McCray)

Inside Linebackers:

Sam Barrington, Jake Ryan (Blake Martinez – Dime ILB replacing Ryan, Joe Thomas)

Cornerbacks: 

Sam Shields, Damarious Randall (Quinten Rollins, Micah Hyde, Ladarius Gunter)

*Demetri Goodson is also suspended for the first four games of the season, but I suspect that the Packers do not cut anyone to bring him back to the active roster.

Safeties:

Morgan Burnett, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (Chris Banjo, Kentrell Brice)

Special Teams:

Mason Crosby, Tim Mathsay, Rick Lovato

Practice Squad: 

Geronimo Allison, WR, Matt Rotheram, OL, Mitchell Henry, TE, Brandon Burks, RB, Joe Callahan, QB, Reggie Gilbert, LB, Brian Price, DT, Demetris Anderson, DT, Robertson Daniel, CB, Manoa Pikula, LB.

  1. NO WAY should the Packers keep Don “Turnstile” Barclay over Abby. If the object is to keep the 53 best Football Players on the roster there’s no way Barclay should be in that conversation. He can’t pass protect if his life depended on it and his run blocking has taken a turn for the worse too.
    Ringo is safe until Pennel comes back but if Rotheram is on the PS I’d keep 9 OL on the 53. Or if Montgomery is on the 53 at the start of the season he could be a RB in a pinch should Lacy and Starks get injured. He’ll be back there more than Crockett this season anyways, just like MM has used Cobb in the past.

    ABBY, ABBY, ABBY!!!!

    1. I think Walker get the last roster spot over Barclay or Abby. Guy is a big OG and we will need more of the them going into next year.
