Back in June I posted a way, way too early roster prediction. Let’s see how things are shaping up with half of training camp and the preseason in the books. I’ve ranked players roughly according to depth chart position. And, as always, I take a shot at naming ten players currently on the roster who the Packers might attempt to retain on the practice squad.


Aaron Rodgers, Brett Hundley

Running Backs:

Eddie Lacy, James Starks, John Crockett


Aaron Ripkowski

Tight Ends:

Jared Cook, Richard Rodgers, Kennard Backman, Justin Perillo

Offensive Line:

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

Wide Receivers:

Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Davante Adams, Jared Abbrederis, Ty Montgomery, 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 still 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, Blake Martinez, Jake Ryan, Carl Bradford


Sam Shields, Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins, Ladarius Gunter, Josh Hawkins


Morgan Burnett, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Chris Banjo, Micah Hyde

Special Teams:

Mason Crosby, Tim Mathsay, Rick Lovato

IR: Corey Linsley, Jeff Janis


Practice Squad: 

Joe Callahan (QB), Brandon Burks (RB), Lucas Patrick (G), Geronimo Allison (WR), Brian Price (DT), Reggie Gilbert (LB), Robertson Daniel (CB), Randall Jette (CB), Kentrell Brice (S), Marwin Evans (S),
