Positions to Watch as Camp Comes to a Close

  2 years ago     217 Views     4 Comments  

With training camp in full swing, all the hype is focused on special teams and the defensive backs but there are other concerns that we should be watching. One concern, in my opinion, is the average (and below average at times) defensive line. Ted Thompson has been a guru at drafting receivers and other positions but when it comes to defensive linemen he has only hit on a select few that lived up to their draft status.   Concern #1 the defensive line Mike Daniels is one of Thompson's better picks but it's hard to point out others.

There has been a lot of talk in Packernation about second year players. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Davante Adams, and Richard Rodgers all made an impact last season and if they take a leap this year, could be special. Adams in particular has Aaron Rodgers raving after OTA's, and at 6'2 and 216 pounds, Adams could add yet another receiving threat - this time, throughout the season. Last year we saw Adams explode when teams like the Patriots and Cowboys paid too much attention to Nelson and Cobb. Richard Rodgers had some good games too and Ha Ha shored up the…
