The 2014 NFL Draft is in the books and so is the Green Bay Packers’ first rookie mini-camp. That means it’s the perfect time to take a stab at projecting the Green Bay Packers 53-man roster for the 2014 season.
If we step back and take a look at the Packers roster as a whole we can see that general manager Ted Thompson has again assembled a very deep roster with a few spots still remaining to be filled before the Packers reach the 90-man limit.
The 2014 Packers will be among the deepest entering training camp during head coach Mike McCarthy’s tenure with the team, meaning there will be some good players getting released on cutdown day.
We still have a long way to go until cut down but regardless of that here is the Packers Guru post NFL draft 53-man roster projection:
QB: (3) – Aaron Rodgers, Matt Flynn, Scott Tolzien.
RB: (4) – Eddie Lacy, James Starks, Jonathan Franklin, John Kuhn.
