The Green Bay Packers added to their depth with their 11 selections in the 2022 NFL Draft and now have a better idea of what their depth chart will look like for the upcoming season.
There are still a lot of unknowns and questions that will be answered throughout offseason workouts, training camp and preseason games. The Packers are looking for a number of players to step up and separate themselves at crucial positions.
Before we fully dive into all of the offseason workouts, however, let’s take a look at the depth chart as it stands now. To be clear, Green Bay hasn’t officially released a depth chart, so this is just our best guess at what it looks like.
Let’s take a look at the Green Bay Packers’ depth chart at every position following the addition of the 2022 NFL Draft class.
Quarterback: Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love, Kurt Benkert, Danny Etling
Running back: Aaron Jones, AJ Dillon, Kylin Hill, Patrick Taylor, Tyler Goodson, BJ Baylor
These first two positions are clear and there won’t be many surprises at quarterback or running back this season. Rodgers and Jones and Dillon sit atop their respective positions. Hopefully, Kylin Hill can return, as he had a promising start to his rookie campaign last season.
Wide receiver: Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb, Sammy Watkins, Christian Watson, Amari Rodgers, Romeo Doubs, Juwann Winfree, Malik Taylor, Samori Toure, Rico Gafford
Wide receiver will be an adventure all season long – from the very first practice until the final game. Nobody is set in stone in this depth chart and there should be a lot of movement as the season goes on. Green Bay is hoping one of their rookies or young players steps up and pushes Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb for their spots at the top.
Tight End: Robert Tonyan, Marcedes Lewis, Josiah Deguara, Tyler Davis, Dominque Dafney, Alize Mack, Eli Wolf
Robert Tonyan is the obvious name to watch, as he’s recovering from a major injury he suffered last season. If he can return to his 2020 form, this position should be better than expected.
