2015 Depth Charts: Green Bay Packers
• You’d struggle to find an offense in the league with more Elite players than the Packers, with Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson and Josh Sitton all finding themselves in that top bracket with a continued period of excellence from all three.
• Despite an impressive playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys, Davante Adams’ rookie season was somewhat lackluster. Finishing the year as the second lowest graded rookie receiver, much more will be expected from him in his second year in 2015.
• We were very much down on Julius Peppers when the Packers signed him, but he really impressed as a pass rusher in his first season in Green Bay. How much longer does he have at that level? Only time will tell, but he’s proved he can still perform at a high level.
• In an ideal world Clay Matthews would be at outside linebacker again but, with the inside linebackers currently on the roster, it makes more sense to play him inside. If they can find some solid interior linebackers, it would allow him to move back outside and pair with Peppers again.
Wide Receiver: Randall Cobb is a devastating receiver from the slot and if he leaves in free agency it will be a big loss for the Packers. It’s asking a lot to expect Adams to improve by that much in his second season, so finding a solid second or third option is key.
Tight End: Quarless has established himself as a solid starter, but outside of him there is little to get excited about at the position and a solid No. 2 tight end is needed in the very least.
Inside Linebacker: As mentioned above, finding some solid inside linebackers helps out at two positions. Even if they are content with Matthews on the inside, someone to pair with him would make sense.
