Between returning veterans, free agent signings, and draft picks, there really aren’t that many roster spots open for competition in a given year.But that never slows any speculation over which lower-end player could make a surprise run for the roster. After all, there is a long-established history of players in Green Bay rising from relative obscurity to earn a spot, whether they be undrafted free agents, practice squad holdovers, or veterans on their last shot in the NFL.Here’s our look at a few less-heralded players who could star in this year’s preseason.Peter Bukowski - Curtis Bolton, LB In order to be a breakout star, a couple of things need to be in play: The most important is opportunity and Bolton should get it with the Packers perilously thin at inside linebacker. After Oren Burks and Blake Martinez, it’s James Crawford and Ty Summers who all seem likely to make the roster. That could leave major playing time for Bolton who has the speed to make an impact on these backup offenses he’ll face. He fell in the draft because of size (6-foot, 218) and just one year of production at Oklahoma, but his speed and fluidity should give him a chance to shine against third-string quarterbacks staring down targets and the heavy-footed running backs on the field in the second half of preseason games. Bolton is a dark horse not just to be a preseason star, but to find a way onto this team given the depth at the position and potential special teams play given his physical traits. Jon Meerdink - Ty Summers, LBSummers is a nice companion to Bolton. Bolton is safety-sized, while Summers fits the more traditional mold of what an inside linebacker should look like. Where Bolton moves fluidly from side to side, Summers goes north and south.But despite these differences, both could travel a similar path to the roster. As Peter aptly points out, both Summers and Bolton will have extensive opportunities not just to shine on special teams, but to play significant reps against lower quality competition. It’s easy to see Summers piling up some tackles against the lower levels of opposing teams’ rosters. It’s hard to overlook those tackle numbers in the box score, even with good reason to discount them. Summers could very well find himself the subject of some preseason buzz with a few noteworthy moments in preseason games. Evan “Tex” Western - Gerhard de Beer Darnell Savage Jersey Womens , OTAfter the 2018 NFL Draft, I was disappointed that the Packers didn’t (or couldn’t?) land de Beer as one of their undrafted rookies. The native of South Africa had visited Green Bay in the pre-draft process and was one of the best athletes at the position in recent memory. I had hoped that Brian Gutekunst could snag him then stash him on the practice squad while he learned to play tackle, eyeing 2019 as the season when he might be able to contribute as a member of the 53-man roster.Then, late last season, the Packers were able to get de Beer in the building, signing him to a practice squad contract in November. I was thrilled, and I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do in training camp and the preseason with a full offseason under his belt. Both he and rookie Yosh Nijman have ridiculous athleticism to harness, but I think de Beer’s extra year in and around the NFL will give him a leg up and make him a sneaky candidate to make the team in September, particularly if Jason Spriggs continues his streak of uninspiring preseason performances.Of course, having the opportunity to buy a Packers jersey with “de Beer” on it would be a lot of fun too.Shawn Wagner - Natrell Jamerson, SEvery year, there is an opportunity for a young newcomer to earn a roster spot in the Packers’ secondary. With Josh Jones’ job status uncertain, an extra safety could be looking at an even greater opportunity than normal.For the former Wisconsin standout Jamerson, a former draft pick of the Houston Texans, speed and athleticism is a calling card. With a year of NFL experience under his belt, Jamerson brings experience as both a cornerback and safety as a versatile player who can also play special teams. While Raven Greene should see time in the box behind Adrian Amos, options are limited behind Darnell Savage at the free position. Jamerson should see plenty of time in the preseason and any splash plays could help him earn a spot on the 53-man roster.Paul Noonan - Dan Vitale, FBDanny Vitale is what preseason superstars are made of. The Northwestern product checks all of the boxes for “beloved fullback who can get you a yard in 3rd and short,” but there may be more to him than that. Vitale’s RAS is off the charts goodAnd under LaFleur there is actually an opportunity for an athletic fullback to do some real damage. LaFleur’s offense is all about versatility and trickery, throwing from running sets and running from passing sets. Vitale could easily see some passes go his way, and morph into a bruiser when the defense goes dime. I don’t think he’s particularly valuable in the modern NFL Darnell Savage Green Bay Packers Jersey , but there’s like a 70% chance that the fans love him. Matub - Curtis Bolton, LBI’m also choosing Curtis Bolton for every reason that Peter stated above, but also due to a few things stuck out to me in his draft profile.His nickname is “Buzzy”. Buzzy Bolton. That’s an awesome nickname. I have a soft spot for great nicknames. I, myself, go by a nickname throughout the internet and have gotten both Mike Daniels’ and Blake Martinez’s nicknames added to their Pro Football Reference pages. Curtis Bolton NEEDS to stand out in the preseason to make the 53. If he does, I will campaign for his PFREF page to adorn the “Buzzy” moniker.His draft profile also mentions his special teams acumen. If there’s something about a football player I love more than a good nickname, it’s good special teams play.Let’s go, Buzzy!A banged up 49ers squad should play to the Packers’ advantage on Monday night It has been a frustrating season for Green Bay Packers fans, who weathered a serious injury scare to Aaron Rodgers in week one and have watched their team fail to put together a complete game so far this season. But if any fan base has felt more agony over the past couple of months, it would be that of the Packers’ opponent this week.A five-game winning streak to close the 2017 regular season behind new quarterback Jimmy Garappolo heightened expectations in the Bay Area heading into this season. Unfortunately, the 2018 campaign quickly came crashing down on the San Francisco 49ers, one impact offensive player at a time.It started with newly added running back Jerick McKinnon suffering a torn ACL during practice in early September. McKinnon’s absence led to an opportunity for veteran Alfred Morris to have another chance at a lead back role in the NFL, but he has provided just a 3.7-yard per carry average so far. Then came another torn ACL that would sideline the team’s new franchise quarterback in Garoppolo after just three games. The following week, the 49ers temporarily lost deep threat wide receiver Marquise Goodwin, who led San Francisco with 105 targets last season. Also injured in that timeframe was young wideout Dante Pettis, leaving the wide receiving corps thin. Pettis will be out again this week against Green Bay, while running back Matt Breida will be doubtful following an ankle injury against Arizona last Sunday.Factor in additional knee injuries that have lingered for Joe Staley, Mike McGlinchey, and Weston Richburg along the offensive line and it has been a difficult and disappointing season in San Francisco. The trials and tribulations, however, create a phenomenal opportunity for the Packers’ defense to execute at a higher level this week and regain its swagger before a bye week.Second-year quarterback C.J. Beathard has taken the reigns for San Francisco Darnell Savage Jersey 2019 , and he has been serviceable through three appearances this season. While owning a decent 62% completion rate, he is averaging just 7.1 yards per attempt and was forced to attempt 54 passes last week with the 49ers trailing the Cardinals. If the Packers create a sizable early lead, they will be in a good position to stunt the 49ers’ offense, which has seen Beathard throw two interceptions in each of the past two games. While the Packers will have a test in matching up with tight end George Kittle, who leads the team in both receptions and yards, Kittle too has been banged up this season and the Packers should have players like Oren Burks, Josh Jones, and Kentrell Brice take on coverage responsibilities. With a 49ers offensive line that is largely less than 100 percent, Green Bay’s pass rushers will have an opportunity to make an impact early and often.As will the Green Bay offense. Despite Richard Sherman allowing just one reception in 146 coverage snaps this season, the 49ers defense is middle-of-the-road when it comes to defending the pass. San Francisco has allowed a 99.0 opponent passer rating according to ESPN, while posting just one interception this season. Rodgers, who was optimistic about getting back on track this week during his post-game press conference, should be able to feast on a defense that has struggled with pass rush. The 49ers have logged just nine sacks this season and are coming off an especially rough showing against Arizona. Rodgers’ ball security and accuracy issues should be vastly improved with more comfort in the pocket and give the offense a chance at some explosive plays, as Arizona pulled off a 75-yard touchdown pass last week. Potential returns for Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison should also help Rodgers and the passing game, while safety Jimmie Ward is questionable for the 49ers after missing last week’s action.On Monday night in the friendly confines of Lambeau Field, Green Bay will have as good a chance as any to correct the myriad issues affecting each side of the ball, not to mention the special teams and penalty blunders of the past few weeks. Facing an injury-riddled team with a 1-4 record, including a three-game losing streak, should not only favor the Packers but provide them an ability to pull away quickly. While Green Bay has had troubles closing games, doing so this week would give this Packers team a two-week break with plenty of positive vibes.
