The Packers have a knack for converting receivers…the latest evidence lies in one Ty Montgomery. But Herb Waters is a receiver converted to cornerback that may make ripples this coming year. 

Waters, at 6’0″ and 188 pounds, caught the eye of cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt Jr. as an undrafted free agent wide receiver last year. Whitt liked the attributes he saw in Waters and asked for him to become a cornerback. As fortune would have it, the situation at wide receiver allowed Waters to make the switch. As fortune also would have it…the situation at cornerback meant that the Packers’ cornerback situation was thrown into a tizzy starting with the week one loss of Sam Shields. Waters now has an off-season under his belt and a chance to grow in his new role.

Most Dangerous Substance on Earth - Packer Offense

Joe Whitt has been high on him from the beginning but in this week’s press conference, likened him to Tramon Williams, who with Charles Woodson anchored the cornerback group of the 2010 Super Bowl team.

Whitt made it clear that if he can stay healthy, Waters will give guys like Randall, Rollins, and Gunter a run for their money. This can only add intrigue to a cornerback competition that is as good as it has been in a long time for the Packers. And that strong competition can only bode well for the chances of the team moving forward.

Don’t sleep on Waters.

Go Pack!

    Sounds likes Jones should play ILB position. He’s fast and will learn the position quickly. This is where the Packers are the weakest and need help.
