Now that the Green Bay Packers are halfway through their preseason schedule and we have gotten a chance to better evaluate each player and the Packers roster as a whole — it’s a perfect time to reevaluate the 53-man roster projection.
Since my last projection, two players that made my roster have gone down to injury — Jared Abbrederis and Don Barclay. That has shaken things up a bit as have performances throughout two preseason games and training camp.
Therefore, without further ado, here is the Packers Guru 53-man roster projection:
QBs (3) – Aaron Rodgers, Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien.
RBs (4) – Eddie Lacy, James Starks, DuJuan Harris, John Kuhn.
WRs (5) – Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Jarrett Boykin, Davante Adams, Jeff Janis.
TEs (4) – Andrew Quarless, Richard Rodgers, Brandon Bostick, Ryan Taylor.
OL (8) – Bryan Bulaga, David Bahktiari, J.C. Tretter, Josh Sutton, T.J. Lang, Lane Taylor, Derrick Sherrod, Corey Linsley.
DL (6) – B.J. Raji, Mike Daniels, Datone Jones, Josh Boyd, Khyri Thorton, Mike Pennel.
LBs (10) – Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers, Mike Neal, Nick Perry, Brad Jones, A.J. Hawk, Jamari Lattimore, Sam Barrington, Jayrone Elliot, Andy Mulumba.
DBs (10) – Sam Shields, Tramon Williams, Casey Hayward, Morgan Burnett, Micah Hyde, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Davon House, Jarrett Bush, Sean Richardson, Demetri Goodson.
