Green Bay Packers: Defensive Battles Shaping Up for Training Camp

Head coach Mike McCarthy was pretty succinct when he talked about training camp at his press conference after the Green Bay Packers ended their three-day minicamp on Thursday.

"This is going to be a damn competitive training camp, no doubt about it", McCarthy said.

Indeed it shall be, as the Packers are very deep at a number of positions. Ted Thompson and McCarthy will have a number of difficult decisions to make about putting together a final roster. I would not be surprised to see a couple of trades to open a roster spot for a couple of players.

Training camp is about six weeks away, but looking at the roster and guessing how many players will be kept at a certain position, jobs will be tough to come by. Here is how I see the roster shaping up.

QB- Three

RB- Three

FB- One

OL- Nine

TE- Four

WR- Six

K- One

P- One

LS- One

That adds up to 29 roster spots. That leaves 24 spots open for the defense. I see the defense shaping up like this...

DL- Six

LB- Nine

DB- Nine

Let's take a closer look at who will be competing for jobs on Dom Capers' defense.
