Hello Packer Nation,

Here is what I predict the Packers 53 man roster will look like when all cuts have commenced by the deadline 8/31:

 

QB (2) Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love

RB (3) Aaron Jones, AJ Dillon, Kylin Hill

WR (6) Davante Adams, Marquez Valdez-Scantling, Randall Cobb, Allen Lazard, Amari Rodgers, Malik Taylor

TE (4) Robert Tonyan, Marcedes Lewis, Josiah Deguara, Bronson Kaufusi

OL (9) Elgton Jenkins, Billy Turner, Royce Newman, Josh Myers, Jon Runyan, Dennis Kelly, Lucas Patrick, Yosh Nijman, Ben Braden

DL (6) Kenny Clark, Dean Lowry, Kingsley Keke, TJ Slaton, Jack Heflin, Abdullah Anderson

OLB (5) Za'Darius Smith, Preston Smith, Rashan Gary, Jonathan Garvin, Chauncey Rivers

ILB (5) Krys Barnes, De'Vondre Campbell, Oren Burks, Ty Summers, Isaiah McDuffie

CB (6) Jaire Alexander, Kevin King, Chandon Sullivan, Eric Stokes, Isaac Yiadom, Shemar Jean-Charles

S (4) Adrian Amos, Darnell Savage, Vernon Scott, Henry Black

K Mason Crosby

P JK Scottt

LS Hunter Bradley

PUP David Bakhtiari OL

Suspended: Jace Sternberger

 

I think the Packers keep five OLB's considering Za'Darius Smith questionable status to start the regular season. They would normally keep four. I think the CB spot could use another cover man, so six CB's could be a little light. I think there could be a surprise cut on the OL, or possibly a trade since they are deep on the interior and only one proven backup at tackle. I think the Packers will be busy scouring the waiver wire, so I would anticipate the following players who make the initial 53 could be on the way out if they find suitable replacements:

OL Yosh Nijman

OLB Chauncey Rivers

LS Hunter Bradley

P JK Scott

CB Isaac Yiadom

DL Abdullah Anderson

 

Go Pack Go!
