The Packers will have decisions to make about the receiver corps at the end of August. All of Packernation will be waiting with bated breath to see who makes the roster and who heads to the practice squad or packs his bags.

At 6'4" and 305 pounds, Kowalski has the frame to add depth to the Packers line while he develops as a pro. Kowalski is also durable, starting every game of his four year career at 'Nova.
