Offensive Line a Glaring Weakness
As training camp is in full stride, the Packers offensive firepower looks to be better than ever. With the Eddie Lacy hype train (rightfully so) getting stronger and stronger, one of the leagues best receiving duos in Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb getting a potential stud in rookie Davante Adams to help share the load, and of course the future hall of famer Aaron Rodgers. It is looking like a team that could set records left and right. The only problem is an offensive line that is going to struggle with depth. This is a unit that is extremely top-heavy with guards Josh Sitton and TJ Lang and right tackle Bryan Bulaga. After them, it goes downhill very fast. Rookie center Corey Linsley, a very strong guy but is raw in his blocking skills, is projected to start week one for Green Bay and the left tackle spot is completely up for grabs as there has been no guys stand out so far in camp. With those two suspect positions, add in that the depth in the unit is less than mediocre, one will wonder how long they can last in the strong NFC North with being average at best in keeping their star quarterback upright and opening up holes for Lacy to run wild. Time will only tell as we now have 19 days left until this thing gets started.
