Packers Position Battles to Watch For in Training Camp
As training camp begins, not every position is set in stone. The Packers have multiple positions that could go either way over the next month, and there will be plenty of factors that go into each decision. Here are the positions to keep track of when the Packers take the field.
No. 3 Wide Receiver: James Jones vs. Jordy Nelson
The Packers have a good problem at the wide receiver position as Jordy Nelson and James Jones battle for the third spot on the depth chart. Greg Jennings is at the top of the list while a rejuvenated Donald Driver (with two healthy knees) will man the other split end. Nelson plays bigger and can stretch the field while Jones tends to find more seams as a possession receiver. Nelson might have the advantage based on versatility, but Jones is more experienced and the job is his to lose. That being said, both receivers should put up solid numbers wherever they land.
Back-up tight end: Donald Lee vs. Spencer Havner vs. Andrew Quarless
