Predicting the Last 5 In, Last 5 out for Packers' Final 53-Man Roster
USA TODAY Sports
Despite being a second-round pick a few years ago, defensive end Jerel Worthy will have troubles making this year's roster in Green Bay.

Getting the final roster down to 53 players will be extremely difficult for the Green Bay Packers this year. In fact, it'll be the hardest it's been in years.

The reason for this is that the Packers are loaded with talent all over the field. Many forget that Green Bay was considered a legitimate Super Bowl contender last year until injuries decimated the roster.
